Chocolate peanut butter cookies (no chill, no roll dough)

Chocolate peanut butter cookies

I am the whitest girl you will ever meet but I feel that the addition of the brackets to this blog post sound like something Snoop Dog would rap. Or not – see previous comments RE white girl.

The reason I added these key words is when I’m on a mission to find a new baking recipe I am often hobbled by the little words that are usually hidden two-thirds of the way through the recipe ‘allow dough to chill in fridge for 2 hours.’ Ain’t no-one got time for that when school pick-up is looming.

Pink baked doughnuts

Pink baked doughnuts

I know, I know – pink isn’t a food. It is a way of life, especially if you’re in the under 8 set, like my second-born. She is a poster girl for everything pink and girly and frilly. Even when she is climbing trees or running around at soccer training she is usually in clashing shades of shocking and pastel pink.

I have no idea why, I have never been a fan of gender-cliched dressing and my first born has a dislike of pink bordering on the obsessive.

My go to colour is red and I have always sought out clothes in colours other than pink for my gals but it just goes to show that pink is boss.

So to these doughnuts… I tweaked a recipe I found at Mary Quite Contrary Bakes – see the original here: http://www.maryquitecontrarybakes.com/2011/05/strawberry-glazed-doughnuts.html . I used a mini pan so this recipe made heaps!

Baked doughnuts are fun to make but you will need a doughnut baking pan and a Ziploc bag to make them.

GATHER:

1 cup flour

1/3 cup sugar

1 tsp baking powder

1/4 tsp cinnamon

1/3 cup milk

1 egg

1 tbsp melted butter

3 tablespoons strawberry jam

1 tbsp pure maple syrup

smidge pink food colouring – optional

Pink baked doughnuts - a cute treat that will make you smile.

LET’S GET TO IT:

Preheat oven to 180 C and thoroughly spray a mini doughnut pan with non-stick baking spray.

In a large metal bowl stir together the flour, baking powder, sugar and cinnamon until combined.

Make a well in the centre, add in milk, egg, butter, syrup and jam (and food colouring if using) and quickly stir until just combined.

Get a large plastic cup or jug and open a Ziploc bag, then push the open bag into the cup and fold the top of the bag over the rim of the glass. Pour the batter into the bag, then use a pair of scissors to cut the corner off the bag.

Pipe into the donut pan until two-thirds full then bake for around 7-9 minutes – they don’t take long.

Remove from oven, flip onto cooling rack, then repeat with remaining batter – make sure you spray pan each time with baking spray.

glaze:

Sift 1 cup sifted icing sugar into a bowl then mix with milk until it is a thick pouring consistency – drizzle over cold doughnuts then sprinkle over 100s and 1000s.

Boozy strawberry trifle for one - The Hungry Mum

Spring has sprung! At least, it has in the southern hemisphere and today, the first day of Spring, the skies were blue, the wattle was out and all was right in the world.

To celebrate this most beloved of seasons it seemed fitting to make a dessert as sweet as the weather. Continue reading

Funfetti white chocolate blondies

Funfetti white chocolate blondies

I cannot tell a lie – I did not make the vision of loveliness you see before you. That was Miss9, who created these funfetti white chocolate blondies by herself from woah to go.

That child is a way better cook than me, and unlike me, her repertoire includes non-sweet items. I am happy making cakes, I am unhappy making dinner #groundHogDay

Miss9 is passionate about white chocolate and when she saw this recipe in a recent issue of Super Food Ideas’ magazine she raided the pantry and whipped these up in no time. Continue reading
