Baking, Baking, Baking!

Sunday, August 24, 2008

Well, it's happened. I'm officially tired of baking. After a marathon session of blondies, muffins and cookies, I'm over it. So I'll share some pictures, and a recipe (from my Grandmother), and the only recipes I'll be sharing anytime soon will be savory. I'm thinking Spaghetti alla Carbonara tonight!

So the first goodie Summer and I made was a Peanut Butter Butterscotch Blondie. I'd never made Blondies before, and thought it would be fun. I think they're overrated. Probably won't be making them again anytime soon.

The ingredients...

The finished product...

Next we made Peanut Butter Chocolate Chip Cookies. Tried a different recipe, and they weren't quite as good as the last one I posted. Although it made a TON of cookies, so I will probably make them again around Christmas time.

The ingredients....

It's called Multitasking!

Lastly, as I was digging through my recipe file, I found my Mother's handwritten recipe of my Grandmothers' Cinnamon Muffins. I remember her making these when I was a child for breakfast, and wanted to share these with my kids. They tasted just like I remember...not too sweet, and just enough cinnamon sugar goodness to get you through a cold winter morning. Too bad we don't have cold winter mornings here. And it's supposed to be 108 degrees today. Again. But the muffins were perfection. I suggest you try them some morning when its not 108 degrees.

Gladys Faye's Cinnamon Muffins

1 1/1 cups sifted flour
2 1/4 tsp baking powder
1/4 tsp salt
1/3 cup sugar
1/2 tsp nutmeg
1 egg
1/2 cup milk
1/4 cup melted butter

Mix and sift flour, baking powder, salt, sugar and nutmeg. Combine well beaten egg, milk and melted butter; add to sifted ingredients and blend lightly (about 25 strokes). Half fill greased muffin pans with batter. Bake in a preheated 425 degree oven about 12-14 minutes. Remove muffins from pans and immediately roll them in 1/3 cup melted mutter; then in a mixture of 1/3 cup sugar and 1 tsp cinnamon. Best served warm.

Rollin' Rollin' Rollin'.....

Keep those muffins rollin'

Move 'em on, head 'em up

Sorry, had a Rawhide moment there. Won't happen again. I hope.

Those were always one of my favorites. Didn't know you even had the recipe.
