Bites from other Blogs

  • My fruity raspberry mojitos were such a success that I want to try making the drinks with other fruits now, too. There are so many berries that go well with mint a lime! Ravenous Couple made up some Strawberry Mojitos for summer recently. The recipe calls for making a big batch of lightly sweetened strawberry puree, so you’ll have it on hand to make big batches of mojitos. Don’t forget to save some berries for garnish!
  • Half Baked Baker‘s Oatmeal Caramelitas are indulgent bar cookies that are a fun twist on an oatmeal cookie. Sort of. The base for the bars is made with lots of rolled oats and oat flour, giving them a nice nutty flavor. The filling is made with caramel, cream, chocolate chips and pecans, which lends sweetness, chewiness, crunchiness and chocolatey-ness to the bars. It’s delicious, and there is just enough of a hint of salt that you can’t stop at eating just one. These are a great choice for bake sales, as the flavors are popular with just about everyone.
  • The Coffee and Donut Cupcakes made by The Noshery combine two of the best sweets out there: donuts and cupcakes. The recipe makes up a batch of coffee flavored cupcakes and tops them with a coffee-flavored buttercream frosting. They’re topped with store-bought mini donuts (donut holes would be great here), and finished with a little more frosting and some sprinkles. It almost looks like a cupcake on top of a cupcake, but tastes a little like a donut dunked in coffee. Great way to start the day!
  • Everyone is always in search of that elusive perfect brownie recipe, but everyone has their own definition of perfect, so it’s hard to narrow things down. If you’re looking for a rich, chocolaty and very moist, Chocolate Mascarpone Brownies might be just the ticket. This batch of these brownies was baked by A Pookie Pantry, who could hardly wait for them to come out of the oven before slicing into them to give them a taste. The brownies have mascarpone cheese, melted chocolate and a lot of cocoa powder for flavor and texture.
  • How could you resist a cake with a name like Edna Lewis’ Busy-Day Cake? Ezra Pound Cake couldn’t – after all, what day isn’t a busy day? The cake is a simple butter cake that can be mixed up by hand. Most of its flavor comes from butter, vanilla and nutmeg, which is a simple and satisfying combination. In fact, this cake needs absolutely no frosting, but a little fruit compote, some berries or some ice cream on the side wouldn’t hurt, either.
