Best Baking Recipes - Kiwi Baking Mint Chocolate Chip Cake - Semisweetie, A geeky baking and recipe blog Thank goodness I have a mother-in-law with good taste in birthday cakes. This past week we traveled to my in-laws to celebrate her birthday. Brad gave me some tips on what she might like for her cake – I was stoked to create something minty and chocolatey for her. Mint Chocolate Chip Cake (makes one 9-inch two-layer cake, originally adapted from David Lebovitz’s Devil’s Food Cake recipe) For the cake: 9 tbsp unsweetened cocoa powder 1 1/2 cups cake flour (not self-raising, I just used plain flour and replaced 3 tbsp with cornstarch) 1 1/2 tsp salt 1 tsp baking soda 1/4 tsp baking powder 1 stick unsalted butter, at room temperature 1 1/2 cups caster sugar 2 large eggs, at room temperature 1/2 cup water 1/2 cup milk For the icing: 2.5 sticks unsalted butter 3 cups icing sugar 1 tsp peppermint essence, adjust to taste 150g semisweet chocolate, very finely chopped or pulsed through a food processor (I chopped mine) green food coloring nonpareils (snow caps) Mix together the water and milk.
Peanut Butter and Jelly Cupcakes Recipe From decadent Peanut Butter Trifles to Amber’s Peanut Butter Snickeroos, I filled up the week with pure peanut butter goodness, so I knew I had to wrap up the week with something extra special. The idea for Peanut Butter and Jelly Cupcakes has been filed away in my recipe notebook for months just waiting to debut in spectacular style. I have forever been a fan of peanut butter and jelly sandwiches, especially when fluffy white bread is involved. I know, I know, this is certainly not the most nutritious bread choice, but hey, this is My Baking Addiction, so I am giving the white bread some love to go along with this week’s peanut butter love. I get on food kicks a lot, meaning I’ll eat the same thing over and over again until I simply can’t stand the thought of it, but somehow, I never tire of PB&J sandwiches and I often eat them for dinner when Brian works late… sometimes I even get fancy and actually toast the bread!

This recipe has become my new go-to, late-night, chocolate, gooey, baked good craving fixer. They take absolutely no time to make and the fact that such minimal effort and ingredients can result in such deliciousness blows my mind. These are chewy, and they stay chewy the next day (I’m not sure how they are after that though, because these were all gone within 24 hours). Oh, yum. I have to go and make some more.

Brown Butter Double Fudge Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough Cookies Little bit of a mouthful there. But it’s like a cookie on top of another cookie! Yeah. Like total dirty cookie on cookie action. Except these ones down below wanted to try a few different positions. I dunno… they’re all mixed up. In order to solve a common I-want-a-chocolate-CHOCOLATE-cookie-but-he-wants-a-plain-chocolate chip-cookie dilemma that happens like, every single weekend here… I made both. Some of them smashed up against each other while others sat on top of each other but in the end, they all tasted… fantabulous. And then they tasted extra delicious after I spent two hours cleaning out the contents of our bar (take that as you will), after he spent three hours organizing the pantry (that was weird) and after we both needed to severely eat our emotions immediately post-Boardwalk Empire finale. WHAT was that. ??????? Why??? Then I tried to dunk a cookie in milk and failed. I need cookie dunking lessons, a redo on season 2 (thanks HBO), and a salad. [from giant rainbow cookies]
Stay hungry, my friends. Nov 13 So, Boing Boing asked me to do a recipe for them. The only caveat is that it involve caffeine. Done and Done. Deep Dish Fruit Pizza My sister-in-law Missy first introduced me to the concept of fruit pizza years and years ago, and here’s how: she brought one to my house and I proceeded to eat the whole thing. But it was small. And I was nursing. My mammary glands made me do it. I whipped up a whopper of a fruit pizza a couple of weeks ago using my good ol’ standby sugar cookie recipe…and it was so darn good in such a naughty, naughty way. This is one of those fun, throw-together treats that’s perfect for everything from a slumber party to a baby shower. Sorry I said mammary glands. The Cast of Characters: my sugar cookie dough (recipe below), marshmallow creme, cream cheese, peaches, kiwi, blueberries…and whatever other fruit you’d like! Now, you could divide the dough in half, then roll out each half into thin, round pizzas. Or you could do what I done did… And press the whole quantity of dough into a sheet pan. I love this pebbly texture. Then just throw it in the oven… Then just let the crust cool completely. So I deet.

german pancakes Saturday, December 2, 2006 Back when I was still getting daily “are you okay?” and “do you need anything” phone calls from my mother each morning after my little rumble with the stairs, she told me one more she’d just made German pancakes for breakfast. “Oh, you remember them, don’t you? I made them once in a while when you were growing up.” Well no, I don’t. The recipe, by the way, mom says she got from one of those inserts that came with her at least 30-year old blender, completely crushing my romanticized notions of this being something her parents over brought from the “old country.” German Pancakes From my mom’s old blender cookbook Yield 2 9-inch pancakes.
