3-Ingredient Peanut Butter Cookies

 

i

Today we are making peanut butter cookies, and to be completely honest with you, I thought these were going to be a fail.

So I looked up on the recipe, and nearly all of them had a crap-tonne of sugar in them, and from my last post, you know how I feel about that, so I replaced the sugar with honey, and here’s what came out. Enjoy!

 

Ingredients:

  • 1/2 cup of peanut butter (smooth)
  • about 2 tablespoons of honey
  • 1 egg

note: this batch I made was pretty small, because I wanted to see if it would actually work without the sugar, so you can double the recipe, since only 8 cookies came out of these quantities.

Directions:

  1. Preheat oven to 175*C and line a baking tray with baking sheet. I actually used one of those cupcake tin thingies, so I just used the little papers that came with it.
  2. Mix your ingredients together until they become smooth, like so

3. Make little dough blobs or just stick them in the muffin tin using an ice cream spoon thing like I did, and pop them in the oven for 6-8 minutes, you really don’t wanna overbake them, since they’re best soft. They also work really well with a glass of milk  😉

(yes i am aware of the fact that i may have overcooked them just a tad, but practice makes perfect after all)

The Best Apple Pie.EVER.

Hey, y’all

You may not know this about me, but Tiramisu and apple pie are my favourite desserts. Mainly because they remind me of family holidays. For example, on NYE, mum always makes us a tiramisu cake which is BLOODY DELICIOUS. Ahhh, tiramisu.

Each and every single year, mine and other 2 classmates’ families go skiing. And it always is SO much fun!! We laugh in the snow and make useless snow puns, but it’s OUR thing, ya know?! This year, one of my mates’ mother made an apple pie, that was ABSOLUTELY MARVELLOUS. Of course, the second it got to me, I could not leave without the recipe, which I have successfully got  😉 So here you have it!

Ingredients:

  • 6 eggs;
  • 2 small jars of yoghurt;
  • 2 cups of sugar;
  • 2 cups of oil
  • 2 cups of flour;
  • 2 envelopes of baking powder;
  • rum extract to taste;
  • 2 envelopes vanilla sugar;
  • vanilla extrac to taste;
  • 6 apples;

Directions:

  1. Beat the sugar, eggs, vanilla sugar, rum extract til foamy.
  2. Peel the apples and chop’em up!
  3. On top of that add the yoghurt and mix, then the oil, and mix, the baking powder, mix, flour, mix and the chopped apples, and, FINALLY, mix for the last time. (that was a lot of mixing)

Baking:

  • 180*C for about 45 mins;

 

 

I really do hope that you’ll give it a try and a taste and, if so, let me know what you think about it  😉

Love ya! Cheers, bye  ❤

Jam Roll-ups

Hey, y’all!

So, last week I felt like something sweet, and I came across a few recipes, but one that really caught my attention, was “Jam Roll-ups”, which reminded me of the little treats I used to love. So I decided to bake myself 2 enormous batches (because diabetes is not close enough) and live life. Yolo, betches.

Ingredients:

  • 200g jam (i used plum to recreate the childhood treat)
  • 14og flour
  • 4 eggs separated
  • 2 tbsp granulated sugar
  • 40g powdered sugar
  • vanilla extract to taste
  • 1 pinch of salt

Important:

  1. Your eggs. They need to be at room temperature, for you to properly be able to beat them. Also, even a drop of yolk in your whites will absolutely ruin your mixture. So, you better be careful how you separate your sh#t.
  2. Your stand mixer (or whatever mixer you’re using) must be very clean. The tiniest bit of fat that may have survived on there will crash all your dreams.
  3. Roll it up when still hot, waiting for it to chill may cause it to break right there, in your hands. And that would be just sad.

Directions:

  1. Preheat oven at 175*C.
  2. Beat the egg whites and salt until foamy. Then, add you granulated sugar, little by little and beat. Don’t beat them for too long though, they need to be firm, but also ‘creamy’.
  3. Transfer the egg whites into another clean vessel.
  4. In that same mixer, add the yolks, powdered sugar and vanilla extract and mix well, until they become creamy.
  5. When that state is achieved, sift half of the flower on top of it and gently fold it in. Next, add about half of the egg whites and, also, gently fold them through. Do the same with the rest of ingredients.
  6. On a baking tray with non-stick baking paper, evenly spread the batter with a spatula.
  7. Once out of the oven, sprinkle the ‘cake’ with powdered sugar. Take it out of the tray, still leaving the baking paper on, and roll it.
  8. Let cool completely.
  9. NOW, gently de-roll it and add your jam, but don’t add too much. You can even add chocolate, if you want to.
  10. Roll it up again and let it sit for at least 1 hour.

Bake:

  • 10-12 mins

There you go! Maybe I’ll get diabetes, but at least we’ll get it together (dark humour jokes goals lmao) Love ya. Cheers, bye ❤

Lava Cake

Hello everyone!

So, I went to a restaurant about a week ago, and I tried something called a “Lava Cake” with ice cream. I fricking loved it! So, I looked for the recipe and, surprinsingly, it’s really easy to achieve. So here you have, a Lava Cake recipe.

Ingredients:

  • 160g of dark chocolate;
  • 75g of butter;
  • 2 whole eggs;
  • 30g of flour;
  • 2 egg yolks;
  • 70g of powdered sugar;
  • vanilla extract to taste;
  • a pinch of salt;

Directions:

  1.  First of all, melt the dark chocolate (you can use any chocolate you’d like, I chose dark) and the butter together in a double boiler, or just a microwave (make sure you don’t burn it if you go that route).
  2. Now that you have your melted chocolate, add the powdered sugar and whisk until well combined.
  3. Then add the whole eggs and egg yolks and whisk again.
  4. Now, add your vanilla extract ( I used about 3 teaspoons),pinch of salt and flour, and *surprise-surprise* whisk until everything is well combined.

Bake:

You can use anything as a mould, I used a cupcake tin baking tray thingy (…)

You want to fill them about three quarters each.

This recipe is for 4 full-sized lava cakes, but if you use a muffin tin, like me, you’ll get about 9, which is pretty good.

  • 200*C for 10 minutes

Serve:

Immediately with a scoop of ice cream or some fruit. I like the ice cream better, because since the gooey liquid inside (the chocolate) is hot, and the ice cream is cold, and it just creates the best temperature  😉
