Well, I got back into baking. I am not sure how much longer I could have gone without baking anything. I got home from class on Thursday night and baked up a storm! Almost everyone was in bed, so I had the kitchen to myself. I made:
....Mocha Cake...................Maple Pecan Muffins
........Berry Pie.................Chocolate Chip Cookies
I even got to bed before 1 am. I enjoy baking late at night, but I am not quite sure why. Mommom and Pop call me the "Midnight Baker". They go to bed one night and wake up the next morning with baked goods everywhere. Normally, I don't wait for things to cool. I just leave them on the counter with a dish cloth over them. Sometimes, I clean up the dished other times the kitchen is a disaster in the morning.
Back to Thursday's baking escapade. The Mocha Cake was a repeat from about a month ago. It is amazing!!!! I had never made the Maple Pecan Muffins before. They were actually from a muffin cook book I received for my birthday from Janelle. It has 100 muffin recipes all from 1 basic recipe. It's pretty neat. They are all fairly easy to make. The Berry Pie was another repeat, but definitely worth making again. I use a bag of frozen mixed berries like blueberry, strawberry, and raspberry. Of course, I had to make chocolate chip cookies. I have them down to a science. I can make 1 batch, which equals about 60 small cookies, in 30-40 minutes. I always use parchment paper because I hate to clean up. Well, here are the leftovers as of today:
I don't have pictures of the muffins or chocolate chips cookies because I never got to the cookies before they were eaten. So the picture before is their current state. I only took a picture of one muffin, but by the supply left today I can tell you they weren't a a huge success. Until next time.....Au revoir!
