My first niece turned 1 on Pie Day. So of course Aunt CUPCAKES & Machetes is going to make her cupcakes! (She did not yet receive a machete.) Now she didn’t actually get to eat the cupcakes as she’s still learning solid foods but it doesn’t matter. I’ll bake her cupcakes every freaking year. She also had the BEST reaction when opening a book, which was screaming at the top of her lungs. I really wish I had gotten that on video.
I LOVE the cake in this recipe. I personally thought the icing was a little too sweet but everyone else assured me that I was the only one thinking such thoughts.
Good morning fellow food fiends! I had a great weekend with my dad and let him picked what I baked since he doesn’t get to enjoy it very often. He choose cookies, but I choose the exact recipe.
These were very good. I recommend reading the entire recipe through before starting. Nothing particularly difficult but I had preheated my oven and then read that I needed to refrigerate the dough for a half hour before I could continue. I found the sweet spot with my ancient oven which was 10 minutes, flatten with spatula and then allow to continue to bake on the hot baking sheet for another 10 minutes. (The recipe makes more cookies than it says. I doubled the recipe and had overflowing plates of cookies.)
First new recipe of 2019! But is it brownie or cake? Well, the recipe says brownie but mine ended up more like a cake. A delicious cake. I think my pan was a size too small, thus making the batter thicker. It took twice as long to cook than what the recipe said. I’ve never made icing this way before either so that was another fun treat.
I have the day off of work to go and see the one and only, Ozzy Osbourne in concert tonight. So I’m sitting on my wonderful patio having coffee with the dogs, which I’ve been able to do so little this summer due to the awful mugginess that plagued us most of the season, thinking that I am ready to say goodbye to summer. Autumn is my season (and it’s right around the corner!) and I’m ready to indulge it for everything it’s worth.
I haven’t done a lot of baking this year but there was a light lunch date with family in which I was asked to make some things to bring. What should I end the season with? Blueberries!
There are almost always bananas in my house. Nine times out of ten, my husband won’t eat them because he knows if they start to brown, I’ll turn them into some sort of delectable treat. Problem is, I’ve made so many now that I’m scouring the internet for new banana treats to try. I’ve found some fun new things that I look forward attempting, but until then, here’s a banana bread with one ingredient I haven’t tried making it with yet.
This bread was incredibly moist. I’m cringing at that word but it’s the best I can think of to describe it. Easy to make recipe.
