Izzy wiped out by the heat
This summer it has been crazy hot! We have not had any rain in our part of the country in weeks so I have been to hot to bake. But we had a few days where it did not reach 100 until late afternoon making me believe that it is baking time! A baking weekend was declared!
I found this fun recipe for these Chocolate-frosted Peanut butter Cookie Bars on Our Best Bites. I believed them when they said they are quick to make only 15 min and with things found in your own pantry! Yea! lol so this was about 7pm. I went to my pantry and quickly found that I did not have many key ingredients (read: peanut butter, butter, vanilla) so off to Walmart. Then as I was
I decided to try out a vanilla cake from scratch. This was my first scratch cake that is not one of the tried and true recipes in my mother's recipe box. Lets just say it did not go so well. This time I actually followed the directions. Something was off. I had more of a cornbread consistency that was a super yummy batter but a not so good cake. I also had some trouble with the crust. It was super thick and started popping off so I pulled it off made a lackluster frosting and called it good.
So I think I am going to work with the vanilla cake. Make sure I have the ingredients on hand for the peanut butter cookie bars because they are oh so good! And try out a cinnamon roll recipe this week.
What yummy quick recipe do you whip together when you have company on the way?
