Your cakes look lovely. Your kitchen photo set up looks nice. I have a red mix master like yours. I discovered a Family Circle Winter Special on my desk that has some delicious winter puddings. A simple apple cake pudding was made more interesting by separating the eggs and folding in the whipped whites. I will try it soon. My daughter said she would make some baked things as presents for the rest of us this year. Can't wait. She is a pretty good cook :)
Nothing better than home baked goodies as gifts at Christmas. Shortbread dipped in chocolate would be smashing.
This is a delicious chocolate fudge slice: (from my friend Dendra)125 grams dark chocadd to 200 grams butter, soften together in microwave on defrost until nice and runny, remove thenadd 1 tablespoon peanut butter and 1 teaspoon vanilla essenceIn another dish put 1 cup sugar, 4 eggs and mix togetherAdd the choc mixture to the egg/sugar mixturethen add 1 1/2 cups plain flour and 1 cup milk buttonscook in moderately slow oven for 40 minutes, when cool and you are ready to cut and serve dust with icing sugar.You will all enjoy it - it is delicious. :) Jude
OMG I want your bench mixer!! Looks like you have been having a lot of fun :)
My girlfriend used to make gourmet rocky road using white chocolate, pistachios and turkish delight jellies...can't remember what else but it was a hit. I also remember Mum making sugar coated peanuts one year and they were a sensation too. One year I tried making Peffernusse and it was a disaster. Pusher biscuits are great for Xmas too...ooh you have given ME ideas now!
Yummy looking cakes! And I love your red mixer:)~Cindy
