Chocolate Cake In 5 Minutes! — Dizzy Dee

Chocolate Cake In 5 Minutes! — Dizzy Dee
So, Someone gave me a link to This Yesterday, and after reading the comments I decided to try this, but with modifications. I mixed together THROUGHLY: 1/2 tsp. Baking Soda 3 1/2 Tbsp. Flour 2 Tbsp. Cocoa Powder 4 Tbsp. and in a separate bowl, mixed 1 Egg white and half of the yolk. I added the wet ingredients to the dry, and stirred it up until all of it was moistened(no major clumps of dry ingredients-some small though. which is fine, because it bakes out.)According to the comments, over-mixing it will make a tough and rubbery cake. Looking online, I found a Chocolate Sauce Recipe, and I 1/4th’d it. 1/4 Cup Sugar(I used normal, white granulated sugar) 1/2 Tbsp. I mixed the dry ingredients VERY THROUGHLY first, then added the wet. I believe while the cake is nuking you could easily make the sauce in time, assuming you put the ingredients in the saucepan first. It was JUST THE RIGHT AMOUNT of sauce for this cake!

Wednesday Baking-Ice Cream Crunch Cake This is yet another no-bake recipe for you to use when it’s just too hot to turn on your oven. I found this recipe years ago when I signed up for a Recipe-A-Day email list. It’s not the most frugal recipe ever (brownies or some other baked good will usually be cheaper), but it’s a lot cheaper than a prepared ice cream cake is, especially if you manage to find ice cream on a good sale. This makes a fairly large cake so if you have a small family, you might want to cut the recipe in half. You’ll end up with a shorter cake, but it still tastes just as good. The recipe calls for a springform pan, which is what I use, but if you don’t have one, you could just use a 9×13 pan and cut the cake into squares instead of wedges. 6 cups Rice Krispies 12 oz. package chocolate chips 2/3 cup peanut butter 1 gallon of ice cream, whatever flavor you like, so long as it goes with peanut butter and chocolate Alternatively, you can layer different flavors of ice cream.

The Italian Dish - Posts Single Serving Pie in a Jar These are individual-sized pies made in little glass jars that can go straight from your freezer to your oven to your mouth. SO cute. You can make these with store-bought crust and canned filling or jazz it up with homemade like we do. Pie in Jar This is the type of jar you’ll need. They’re half-pint jars, but short and squatty instead of tall and skinny (Ya know, like me as opposed to my mother. Step 1: Pie Dough The first thing you’ll need is dough. Step 2: Make a topper and line the jar Roll out a small handful of dough. Use the rest of the dough to line the jars. Step 3: Fill ‘er up You’ll need about 1/2 C filling for each jar. Play around with it and come up with something yummy! When your filling is all combined, divide it between the jars and dot a pat of butter on top (about 1/4 T) Step 4: Top it off Make sure your “lid” has a vent so steam can escape. When your topper is ready, slip it onto the top of the pie. Another option is to do a crumb topping. Step 5: Freeze ‘em!

2 Stews: Cheesecake In A Mug I was telling a friend about my 1-2-3 Chocolate Microwave Mug Cake and kept thinking there had to be equally easy and delicious alternatives. I had some cream cheese and sour cream in the refrigerator and played around with a microwave cheesecake. The first time I overcooked it, but the second time was a charm. It was creamy and delicate from the first bite. This cake is great for people at work, in dorms or if you just want cheesecake...fast!

Gastronomer's Guide: Simple Tiramisu For a lazy summer afternoon, tiramisu is the perfect pick-me-up. Its literal translation is pick me up (tira mi su). Tiramisu is one of those desserts that has as many different versions as there are mothers in Italy. This is my simple yet traditional version of the easy to assemble, no-bake, no-cook dessert. Mascarpone can be found in Italian specialty stores usually in an 8-ounce or 17-ounce container. Note: Leave out the raw eggs if you are uncomfortable using them or use pasteurized eggs. 4 large eggs, separated1 cup plus 1 tablespoon sugar16 ounces mascarpone cheese1-1/2 cups brewed coffee1/2 cup coffee liqueur40 store-bought ladyfingers1 cup heavy creamcocoa powderbittersweet chocolate In a large bowl, beat egg yolks and cup of sugar until light and fluffy.
