Love Butterbeer Cupcakes? Check out Golden Snitch Butterbeer Cake Pops! Welcome to a very special edition of Sunday Sweets! If you’re new to this blog, let me explain. . Your cast of characters for the cakes. First, cream your room-temperature butter together with your sugars until well-combined and fluffy, like so: Now beat in your eggs, one by one. Now you’re going to alternate adding buttermilk… Cream soda… And your dry ingredients (whisked together) until they’re all added. I could’ve eaten this entire bowl with a spoon. And bake for 15 to 17 minutes until a tester comes out clean and the cake springs back slightly when touched. Mmm. Now it’s time for your butterscotch ganache, which will be the filling and be in the buttercream frosting. This will be a lot thinner than your standard chocolate ganache, but don’t worry. The best way to do the filling is to buy a cheap squeeze bottle (this one was less than a dollar) and fill it with your ganache using a funnel. I wish! Enjoy!. Related:  Sweet Tooth

Jamaican Banana Fritters - There’s a thing in my house that when you have ripe ol bananas either you make banana bread or banana fritters. These delicious tasty treats can be eaten morning, noon, or night, as a snack or as dessert. These fritters are so easy to make and will satisfy any craving you may have. So if you have a few of these bananas lying around your hose… don’t toss them, put them to GREAT use! Enjoy! Peel and mash the ripe bananas. Beat egg, sugar, vanilla, cinnamon, and nutmeg. Next, blend egg mixture with mashed bananas. Make sure it is all incorporated. Then sift flour and baking powder into the banana/egg mixture. Mix it all together. If the batter seems to be too thick add a little milk… I added about 1/4 cup to 1/2 cup of milk. Add oil to a frying pan and place on medium high heat. Drop spoonfuls of the banana fritter batter into the hot oiled frying pan. Flip when you see the edges starting to get brown and golden. Lastly, combine cinnamon and sugar together to create your cinnamon sugar. Ingredients

Чай из базилика Chewiest Sugar Cookies - Recipes - food52 - food community, recipe search and cookbook contests Author Notes: My 8 year old daughter Maddie and I love to make cookies together. We always sample the dough as we go, adding a little more sugar or vanilla (or something else), if needed. Because if the dough doesn't taste good, the cookies certainly won't. If you use very fresh free-range eggs (ours are from a farm down the road), then you don't have to worry about salmonella. Food52 Review: These super-chewy cookies have deep dark sugar flavor and rich vanilla notes. Serves 20-30 cookies 1 cup unsalted butter, softened 1 cup packed light brown sugar 1/2 cup white sugar 2 egg yolks 2 teaspoons vanilla extract 3 cups unbleached all purpose flour 1/4 teaspoon baking powder 1/4 teaspoon fine sea salt Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. This recipe is a Community Pick! Popular on Food52 and Provisions Tags: Easy, kid-friendly, sweet

How To Make Brown Sugar Buttercream Frosting This was my first time making any kind of buttercream frosting, and it was ridiculously easy. And it was Oh My God good. We’re thinking of making another batch and just eating it as a dip with fresh fruit. Super simple and super yummy. Ingredients 1 cup milk 5 tablespoons all-purpose flour 1½ cup brown sugar 1 cup butter (2 sticks) 1 tablespoon vanilla 1 teaspoon salt (if you use unsalted butter) Directions Stir the milk and flour together and mix over medium heat for 5-10 minutes, until it thickens. Set the milk aside to cool, and combine the sugar, butter and vanilla in a mixer. Beat on medium speed for 5-10 minutes — colder butter will take longer — until the sugar is dissolved and you don’t taste the graininess of it any more. Add the milk mixture to the butter mixture and stir until smooth. The finished texture is surprisingly light and fluffy, considering what went into it. I’ll be back soon with the banana cake this went on. Yes that’s right, not banana bread: banana cake. Ingredients
