A Tasty Recipe: My Granny's Chocolate Cobbler

A Tasty Recipe: My Granny's Chocolate Cobbler
This week, Ree’s in Orlando, ditching the boots for a pair of flip flops. Right now, she’s either lost in Wally World, hiding in the bathroom, or clutching the bars of some insane ride and crying for her mommy. So we have another special guest filling in for this week’s Tasty Recipe post! When I was invited to guest post here I was filled with glee and honored to have been asked to fulfill such a task. So when I saw this recipe, My Granny’s Chocolate Cobbler submitted by Tasty Kitchen member Susan Hawkins, I knew I had to give it a try. This cobbler reminds of a Molten Chocolate Lava Cake, like the one Ree once shared. The ingredients are simple. Begin with the flour in a mixing bowl. Next add the baking powder, salt, 3 tablespoons of the cocoa powder and 3/4 of the sugar. Side note here: I used dark cocoa powder for this recipe, which can be found in most local groceries. Okay, back to the recipe. Next add the milk, melted butter and vanilla extract. Combine well. Again, don’t stir. Related:  Chocolate!Other Desserts

Moist, Decadent Chocolate Swirl Banana Bread Do you have a recipe book that is well “loved” and often used? Is it that one you stick in a drawer when someone drops in unexpectedly? You’re hiding secret family recipes, right? What? A treasured cookbook. It was my mother-in-law’s and before her, it belonged to Auntie, who raised her. I’m so sorry, but in my defense, I DID warn you! From the pages of this treasured tome, comes the recipe that makes our family the most moist, delicious banana bread you have ever dreamed about! It’s going to be hard to eat any other banana bread, after this. Isn’t it gorgeous? Chocolate Swirl Banana Bread Ingredients 3 cups sugar 1 1/2 cups butter (no substitutes, here) 9 ripe bananas 6 eggs 6 cups unbleached all purpose flour 1 Tablespoon baking powder 1 Tablespoon baking soda 1 1/2 teaspoons salt 2 cups semi-sweet or dark chocolate chips Instructions Peel and mash bananas. Add the butter and sugar and beat well. Beat in the eggs. The batter will be thick when it is finished. Grease four loaf pans.

Chocolate Cheesecake Candy Cane Bars Recipe : Food Network Kitchens Directions For the crust: Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F. Line an 8-inch-squarebaking dish with foil. Process the chocolate wafers in a food processor with the butter, sugar, coffee and salt until fine.

Cheeseburger Macaroni This delicious, incredibly cheesy dish is another one of our favorite weeknight dinners. It’s beefy, hearty and whips up in less than 20 minutes. Hope you love this one as much as we do! Start with one pound of lean hamburger meat, browned and drained. Add a package of taco seasoning. And one can of this. You don’t even have to bother to drain it! Gosh, I really like Rotel. Add two cups of beef broth. (You can also just use water if you want.) And one cup of elbow macaroni. By the way, I’ve tried other shapes of pasta in this recipe, and none of them seem to work as well as good old macaroni. Stir to combine, and heat to boiling. Meanwhile, melt 2 tablespoons of butter in a saucepan over medium heat, then add 2 tablespoons of flour. Whisk to combine, and continue to cook, whisking until the roux is fragrant and light brown in color, about 5 minutes. Whisk in 3/4 cup of milk. And bring the sauce to a boil. Remove the saucepan from the heat, and add 1 cup of shredded cheddar cheese. Glorious!

3 Tips for More Perfect Brownies By Katherine Sacks, Recipe by Sam Worley Three tips for achieving perfect fudginess. Fudgy brownies are a tricky beast: overbake them and you enter cakey territory, underbake them and you get a squishy mess. Nobody is. Data Breaches Are A New Norm. So how do you avoid under- and overbaking? Sounds obvious.

How to Make Crêpes Without a Crêperie A brief tutorial on how to make crêpes at home, no crêperie required. Just you, your stove and a bit of batter and you’ll have a plate full of thin pancakes in no time at all. I’ve always wanted to live abroad, even if just for a short time. While the dream of leaving and exploring was there, the reality was and is that I remain fully rooted in the Midwest.In college I was a single parent. In order to declare my Spanish major, I had to get the mandatory study abroad waived. Rather than live somewhere new and explore, I sat in my apartment and cooked, dreaming of leaving. To the eggs and milk, add in flour, melted butter and a bit of salt. When it’s time to cook, heat a pan with rounded edges over medium-high heat. Cook the crêpe for 30 seconds or so. Slide the crêpes into a flat pile and let them cool a bit while you repeat the process and make more crêpes. And that’s it. If you’re wondering, no, I still have not been to France, nor have I ventured to Australia.

Baked NYC - Sweet and Salty Brownies In our seemingly endless effort to ferret out the best brownies on the planet, for you, our devoted readers, we come to you today with yet another contender for the title. Many of you will recall our first foray into "Baked NYC" territory with this post about them back in January. In it, we put the original "Baked" brownie to the test, and found we really loved it's deep dark flavor, and almost fudge like consistency. Well, the guys at Baked Bakery in Brooklyn are back with not only a new cookbook called Baked Explorations , but also a new take on their now famous brownie. To put it simply, the Sweet and Salty Brownie is their original on steroids, and while we may hold steroids and all those stupid athletes that use them in low regard, in this instance, they are a VERY GOOD THING! These brownies hang onto all that was good about the original, the insane chocolate flavor, and the cakey at the edge, but dense-as-night in the middle consistency that we all loved. Cheers- Steve Ingredients:
