Chocolate Malted & Toasted-Marshmallow Layer Cake - Semisweetie, A geeky baking and recipe blog
Recipe: Sweetapolita's Campfire Delight Total time: 4 hours Ease: Intermediate Unusual ingredients: malted milk powder, whipping cream, marshmallows, marshmallow fluff, unsweetened cocoa powder, coffee Marshmallows. Malt. Heavenly moist chocolate cake. I knew this was going to be a time investment. The cakes themselves were perfect. Toasting the marshmallows was easy in the oven, but when I added them to the mixture of fluff, butter and icing sugar, things got quite a bit messy! The chocolate malted frosting is absolutely delightful. Related Posts: Related:  sweet

How to prepare King Crab OK, so that’s sort of a trick title. “How to Reheat King Crab” would be more accurate. In the U.S., almost all the King Crab you’ll find in stores is already cooked. This one is more method than actual recipe. King Crab legs are at their best when served simply: hot with a side of melted butter for dipping. What is a King Crab, anyway? Let’s back up for a sec before we roast this beastie. I don’t know about you, but to me, King Crab has always been one of those capital “F” Fancy Foods. But what, exactly, is King Crab? There are about 121 species of the prickly, cold water King Crab scrambling around in the seas. As with most seafood, there are fishing requirements (size and sex…only males can be kept for food). As you can tell by the monstrous size of their legs, they’re really big. (Photo of brave woman + crab courtesy of the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration) The crabs are a dark, wine red when they’re alive, and bright red when they’re cooked. Did you know?

Warm Toasted Marshmallow S'more Bars lemon blueberry scones It is time, once again, for me to give in to my cravings… I’ve been craving something cakey, something flakey, something sweet but not too sweet… I’ve been craving a scone! After doing my recipe research, I decided to use the basic bones of this recipe but I changed it to be lemon blueberry flavor and to have icing on top instead of sprinkled sugar (I like sprinkled sugar on scones a lot but I had a whole lemon full of juice that couldn’t be wasted). Scones are great because they are super easy (pretty much like the basic biscuits) and they can be made into just about any flavor that you’d like. Add dried fruit and nuts, fresh fruit, spices, WHATEVER!

No-Churn homemade icecream | The Wanna be Country Girl This ice cream recipe has only four ingredients, takes less than 10 minutes to make, and will leave you wanting more every time. Grab 5 fresh strawberries. You can use any fruit you like, or add 1 teaspoon vanilla extract and top with hot fudge. Wash and slice the fruit, then put it in a food processor. Add 1 tablespoon of sugar and pulse until the fruit is pureed. Add the pureed fruit to a large mixing bowl. Add 1 cup plus 2 tablespoons of powdered (confectioner’s) sugar to the fruit. Followed by 2-1/2 cups of heavy whipping cream. No need to mess up the big standing mixer for this. That’s a soft peak, just able to hold its shape. Pour this wonderful concoction into a covered container and into the freeze for 3-5 hours. I made some pecan shortbread to serve with the ice-cream…….or was it the other way around? Enjoy!!! the wanna be country girl – Caroline

The Gonzo Gourmet best banana bread The reason I say “be transformed” is because this banana bread will transform you, or at least, it transformed me. It is literally the best I have ever tasted. Moist. Dense. Let me tell you the story. It was a little over a month ago, and I was dutifully following the hCG diet. I was in perfect control as they mixed up a banana bread, too. “Just have a little taste,” my thin friends said with imploring smiles as the scented steam from the freshly cut loaves nearly over powered me. Really? And that’s when I succumbed. I tried hanging on to that diet for a few more days, but then alas, other great food got the best of me. I am a food blogger. Julie’s Banana Bread (This recipe in in Julie’s words, cut and pasted from her email. 1 1/2 cups sugar 1/2 cup butter (i usually use salted, because that’s what I usually have in stock) Cream together. Add: 1 c. apple sauce (unsweetened) 2 cups mashed bananas (about 5 or 6 ripe bananas) 3 eggs, lightly beaten Mix just until incorporated. Do not over-mix!

The Brownie That Will Change Your Life Let me start off by saying that viewer discretion is advised for today’s post. OK now with the story that preludes possibly the greatest brownie I have ever sunk my teeth in thus far in my life. Last Saturday Mrs. Zesty had a baby shower to attend and she was designated for a dessert/sweet treat for the girls. Last week was a bit of a zoo and I think I forgot about prepping this dessert until Friday afternoon at work. I knew time was tight and I didn’t want to spend all night Friday night to prep a dessert. This recipe, I cannot take any credit for and nor will I try as it is compliments of Nestle Toll House and as you can see from the reviews…. Ingredients 1 pkg.
