So I have to admit something to you…doughnuts are probably my favorite sweet treat.  Crazy, I know.   As a kid, my parents would take my brother and I to Dunkin Donuts for a treat.  Boy, do I love Dunkin Donuts!  When my husband and I moved to Arizona there were a few Dunkin Donuts throughout the valley but eventually they all closed.  This was a very sad day for me.  But about 3 or 4 years ago Dunkin Donuts started to re-open in the valley.  I was so happy that I rushed to take my boys there…they became hooked!  As we all know eating Dunkin Donuts all the time is not healthy so I decided to make a baked doughnut we all can enjoy when we have the taste for them.

Today I am featuring two doughnut recipes.  One is a Snickerdoodle type doughnut and the other is a chocolate with chocolate glaze.  I am featuring two because everyone’s taste in doughnuts is different.  In our house my husband and oldest son LOVE the snickerdoodle doughnut and my youngest and I like the chocolate with chocolate glaze doughnut.   Really, I don’t think you can go wrong with either because they are both that good!

Both recipes made 18 doughnuts so I cut the both recipes in half and they turned out great

What is your favorite doughnut?  Do you like doughnuts for breakfast or as a dessert?  Do you say donut or doughnut?

Happy baking and enjoy the doughnuts!  My husband has already asked for a second batch of the Snickerdoodle doughnut 🙂

Chocolate Doughnuts

recipe from King Arthur Flour

  • 2/3 cup good quality cocoa powder
  • 1 3/4 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1 1/4 cups light brown sugar
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • 3/4 teaspoon espresso powder, optional
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • 3/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1 cup chocolate chips
  • 2 large eggs
  • 3/4 cup milk
  • 2 teaspoons vanilla extract
  • 2 teaspoons vinegar, white or cider
  • 1/2 cup (8 tablespoons) melted butter or 1/3 cup vegetable oil

Chocolate Glaze

  • 1 cup chocolate chips
  • 6 tablespoons half & half or cream (light or heavy)

Directions

  1. Preheat the oven to 350°F. Lightly grease the wells of two standard doughnut pan.  If you don’t have two pans, simply bake the batter in two batches.
  2. In a large mixing bowl, whisk together the cocoa, flour, sugar, baking powder, espresso powder, baking soda, salt, and chocolate chips. Set aside.
  3. In a large measuring cup or medium-sized mixing bowl, whisk together the eggs, milk, vanilla and vinegar.
  4. Add the wet ingredients, along with the melted butter or vegetable oil, to the dry ingredients, stirring to blend; there’s no need to beat the batter, just make sure everything is well-combined.
  5. Spoon the batter into the prepared pan(s), filling them between 3/4 and full.
  6. Bake the doughnuts for 13-15 minutes, or until a toothpick inserted into the center of one comes out clean.
  7. Remove the doughnuts form the oven, and after 30 seconds or so, loosen their edges, turn the pan upside down over a rack, and gently let the doughnuts fall onto the rack.
  8. For sugar-coated doughnuts, immediately shake the doughnuts in 1 tablespoon granulated sugar; add 1/2 teaspoon cocoa powder to the sugar for an additional touch of chocolate.
  9.  If you want to ice the doughnuts rather than shake them in sugar, allow them to cool completely before icing.
  10.  To make the glaze: Combine the chocolate chips and half & half or cream in a microwave-safe bowl or measuring cup. Heat in 20 second increments, stirring the mixture in between until you get a smooth consistency.
  11. Remove from the microwave, and stir until the chips have melted and the glaze is smooth.
  12.  Spread glaze on the doughnuts.

Tuesday Cook Off ~ 12 Inch Chocolate Chip Cookie Cake

Tuesday Cook Off ~ 12 Inch Chocolate Chip Cookie Cake

In one month we celebrate three birthdays out of four in the house.   It’s a busy month!  The problem is making the birthday cake or cupcakes.   None of us like icing and it looks dumb to just write “Happy Birthday”  on a non iced cake.   So my oldest son decided we should do big cookies like you buy in the store.   Since my oldest son has food allergies and does better with homemade items, we decided to look for a good 12 inch cookie recipe.   By the way, this was not as easy as you would think but I think we found a winner.

After trying a couple of recipes, this was the winner.  My boys said it was better than the store bought cookie. YEA!

Recipe from Cookiemadness.net.

Recipe serves 10-16

Ingredients
  • 2 1/2 cups all-purpose flour (11 1/4 oz)
  • 1/2 tsp baking soda
  • 1 tsp salt**
  • 8 oz unsalted butter (or use 4 oz butter and 1/2 cup shortening for 1 cup total)
  • 1 cup packed light brown sugar
  • 1/2 cup granulated sugar
  • 2 large eggs
  • 2 teaspoons vanilla
  • 1 bag semi sweet regular or miniature size chocolate chips (2 cups)
  • 1 regular size bag (about 1.5 oz) plain M&M’s or, if you live in the UK, smarties
Instructions
  1. Preheat oven to 300° F. Line a 12 inch round pizza pan with a circle of parchment or non-stick foil. Alternatively, you can make your own pizza pan by molding non-stick foil into a giant 12 inch circle.
  2. Mix flour, baking soda and salt together; set aside.
  3. Cream butter and both sugars by hand or with an electric mixer. Beat in the eggs and vanilla. When well mixed, add flour mixture and stir until blended Fold in chocolate chips.
  4. Put all the batter in the pan and press it into a circle. Stop the circle about 1 ½ to 2 inches from the rim. Press M&M’s decoratively into top.
  5. Bake on center rack for 32-35 minutes or until cookie is golden around edges and appears set.

I made this recipe without the M & M’s.   It was delicious!  In fact, my husband just asked me last night to make him one to bring to work for everyone 🙂  If you have a great 12 inch Sugar cookie recipe, please email me at linda@mybabypajamas.com.  Thanks!

Random Thoughts of the Day

It’s that time again when my mind is racing with useless random thoughts.   Sometimes it can be so time consuming with all the thoughts running through my head.   It’s probably because I haven’t been able to run the last couple of days.   I have been under the weather with horrible sinus problems.   What are you thinking about right now?

1.   My youngest lost a tooth last night…while sleeping.  Who loses a tooth when they are sleeping?   Has this happened to any one else’s child?

2.   I now have a teenager that should help with chores, why is it that I am still the one putting out the trash all the time?

3.  Why does my dog get a sudden burst of energy right before we go to bed or/and are in bed.   It’s not like we don’t exercise him.   Does this happen to anyone else?

4.  Watching Modern Family while writing this blog.   I just love that show.  Did you know that the character Luke (Nolan Gould) graduated High School at age 13!

5.  What’s the going rate for a lost tooth?

6.  I love Instagram!!  A lot of my friends live all over the country.  We use Instagram to stay up to date on everything in our lives.

7.  Really can’t think because my head is pounding to bad!  I hate sinus infections 😦

Tuesday Cook Off ~ Avocado Salmon Cakes

Tuesday Cook Off ~ Avocado Salmon Cakes

As I was reading my March issue of Runner’s World magazine, I came across an awesome recipe.   At first I didn’t know if I would try it because it called for can pink salmon.   I usually like my salmon fresh.   Well, I was wrong!  This recipe was delicious.   Plus, it’s very easy to make with a lot of benefits.

Did you know that canned salmon is one of the richest sources of the omega 3 fast EPA and DHA.    These fats decrease heart-disease risk and improve bone strength, which may help runners (me) avoid stress fractures.  It’s also an excellent source of protein and vitamin D.

The Avocado Salmon Cakes are great as an appetizer or my husband and I love them as a light lunch on the weekend.  Whichever you choose, I promise if you like salmon you will not be disappointed.

Recipe from Runner’s World Magazine.

Yields 8 salmon cakes

Recipe:

Mix two 6-ounce cans pink salmon, 2 eggs, 1/2 cup bread crumbs, 1/3 cup milk, 1 shredded zucchini and 2 tsp. curry powder.  Stuff into 8 greased muffin cups.  Bake at 350 degrees for 25 minutes.  While the cakes are cooking prepare the avocado sauce.

In a food processor, puree 1 avocado, 1/2 cup plain yogurt, juice of 1 lime, 1 tsp. wasabi and 1/4 tsp. salt  Serve salmon cakes with avocado sauce.   Delicious!

Best Chocolate Chip Muffins

Best Chocolate Chip Muffins

My oldest son just loves chocolate chip muffins.   They are probably his favorite out of all the muffins.  In fact, at the grocery store if he is along, he always ask for one.  Now he has food allergies and it’s harder for him to eat store bought food with paying some kind of price.  So we went searching for the best chocolate chip muffin recipe and I believe we found it.   We tried a few recipes and these seem to be our favorite.   The top is a little crunchy and it’s not too cake like in texture.   If you have a chocolate chip muffin recipe and you think it’s great, we would love for you to share.

Here is the recipe:

Yields 12 large muffins

Sift together and set aside:

2 1/2 cups flour
3 tsp baking powder

In the bowl of a stand mixer with the whisk attachment in place, whisk together on high speed until foamy and slightly stiffened.

2 eggs
1 1/4 cups sugar
2 tsp vanilla extract

Mix together in a measuring cup with a spout:

1/4 cup melted butter
1/4 cup vegetable oil

Slowly add the oil and butter mixture to the egg mixture in a slow stream as the mixer continues to whisk.
Mix together

1/2 cup whipping cream

1/2 cup milk
2 tbsp apple cider vinegar
Add slowly to the mixing bowl continuing to mix but at a reduced speed.
Fold in the dry ingredients by hand with a rubber spatula being careful not to over mix. Don’t worry about lumps in the batter, they are fine. When the dry ingredients are almost incorporated, gently fold in

1 1/2 cups semi-sweet chocolate chips

Spoon batter into well greased muffin tins, filling them to the top. If you like you can sprinkle about a teaspoon of sugar over the top of each muffin before baking.
Bake in a preheated 400 degree F oven for about 20 minutes or until a wooden skewer inserted into the center of a muffin comes out clean.

Random Thoughts of the DayDo you ever just sit around and let your mind race with your thoughts?   Are your thoughts all over the map like mine?  Is it because I am a mom and wife and never have a moments peace.   I feel like my thoughts are all over the spectrum.

Here are my 10 random thoughts for day:

  • I love to cook and even like to bake now.   But I hate to make chocolate chip cookies.   It’s not like they are bad, my family loves them and request them all the time.   I just hate baking them.  Is that weird?
  • I hate coffee.  I mean hate the taste.  Actually makes me gag.   What to hear something strange?  I LOVE the smell of coffee.   When my husband is making his coffee in the morning I love to be around just so I can smell it.
  • Since you now know I hate to drink coffee, I could sure use a Diet Coke.  Yes, this is my means of caffeine.   I drink only one a day 🙂
  • I should probably get the kids up for school or we will be late.  It’s almost 7 am and we are out the door before 8 am.
  • I would like to blow off work today and run by myself.  Without my dog!   I love my dog, Chance, but sometimes it’s nice to go on a long run alone!
  • I wish I had straight hair naturally.  Well, maybe I don’t but I wish I could snap my fingers and it would be blown out straight.  People with straight hair have no idea how long it takes us curly hair people to have their hair.
  • Later today we have a baseball game, track meet and my husband’s softball game.   I wish I could come home and just sleep. Is that bad?  Don’t worry, I will be there cheering my boys on.
  • What’s for dinner??  I should really think about this now before it’s too late.   Oh hell, it’s Smash Burgers tonight!  My boys will be so happy.
  • Today is hump day! Yea!  Friday can’t get here fast enough.
  • My Dyson vacuum has been in the shop for repairs for a week.  Boy, my house could use a cleaning.   Not looking forward to that this weekend 😦

What is going through your mind at this moment?

P.S.   I wish I was still in my pajamas!

Tuesday Cook Off ~ Chocolate Chocolate Chip Banana Bread

Tuesday Cook Off ~ Chocolate Chocolate Chip Banana Bread

My family and I like bread.  Okay, we love bread.  It’s one of my guilty pleasures.   I would much rather have banana bread or cinnamon bread over say chocolate cake with icing.  Not much of an icing fan in this house.  My whole family scrapes off icing all the time.   In fact, sometimes I feel bad.  We will go to one of my sons friends birthday parties and you can tell the mom spent a lot for this special cake and my boys will either say no thank you to cake or scrape the icing in a pile on their plate.  Every time they do this, a mother will say to me, “The icing is the best part”.   Well, not to us.

Now that I have rambled on about icing and how we dislike it, I am totally off subject of this wonderful bread.   When I found this recipe I just had to try it because mixing chocolate, chocolate chips and bananas in bread…what could be better!  This recipe calls for sour cream that I think just makes this bread that much better.   It is so rich and moist; I promise you will love it 🙂

Here is the recipe:

Yields: 1 Loaf

Ingredients
  • 1 stick of salted butter, softened to room temp.
  • ½ cup sugar
  • 1 egg
  • 2 large ripened bananas mashed ( or 2.5 small bananas)
  • 1 tsp. vanilla
  • 1 cup flour
  • 1 tsp. baking soda
  • 2 Tbl. cocoa powder
  • ½ cup of sour cream
  • 1 cup of mini chocolate chips (regular chocolate chips work too)
  • optional ½ cup of chopped walnut.
Instructions
  1. Preheat over to 350 degrees.
  2. Lightly grease a 9×5 loaf pan, or 2 mini pans with non-stick spray.
  3. In a large bowl, cream butter and sugar together. Stir in egg, mashed bananas, sour cream, and vanilla until well blended.
  4. Add baking soda, cocoa, and flour.
  5. Mix everything until well incorporated (about 3 minutes in a Kitchenaid mixer).
  6. Add chocolate chips and nuts (if applicable).
  7. Pour batter into loaf pan(s) and bake for 50 minutes – 1 hr.
  8. Insert a tooth pick into the center of the loaf and check to see if it comes out clean when you pull it out.
  9. Remove from heat and allow bread to rest in the loaf pan for 10 minutes.
  10. Invert the loaf pans onto a cooling rack. Enjoy warm or cold.

Tuesday Cook Off -Parmesan Bread Knots

Tuesday Cook Off -Parmesan Bread Knots

I was looking through my photos yesterday of recent recipes I have tried, made and wanted to feature on Tuesday Cook Off.  I thought I had narrowed it down to this awesome Cinnamon Coffee cake bread; then I made Parmesan Bread Knots with dinner last night.  This had to be the easiest recipe I have made and they were delicious!  My husband who likes to stay away from bread at night ate three!  These bread knots were that good.   The knots went great with our pasta with homemade gravy (sauce) and salad.   It was a perfect and easy meal.   I make my gravy in a huge pot and then freeze it for future use.  I promise to share that recipe soon too.  Doing this makes pasta night so easy plus it’s my youngest sons favorite meal so I try to make it every couple of weeks for him.

I hope you enjoy the Parmesan Bread Knots and I promise they will be a huge hit in your house too 🙂

Here is the recipe:  Easy Parmesan Bread Knots

Ingredients
  • 1 tube (12 ounces) refrigerated buttermilk biscuits ( I used Walmart brand Refrigerated Buttermilk Biscuits)
  • ¼ cup canola oil
  • 3 tablespoons grated Parmesan cheese (I did use the green can stuff)
  • ½ teaspoon garlic powder
  • 1 teaspoon dried oregano
  • 1 teaspoon dried parsley flakes
Instructions
  1. Roll each biscuit into a 12-in. rope and tie into a knot; tuck ends under. Place 2 in. apart on a greased baking sheet. Bake at 400° for 8-10 minutes or until golden brown.
  2. In a large bowl, combine the remaining ingredients; brush the warm knots with the mixture. Yield:10 knots.
