Hey guys, happy Thursday, again!
Here is quick post for you guys, of what happened in WinniE’s Bakery yesterday. I have been so busy lately, with finals coming up, my birthday, my brother’s birthday and running the bakery; which is even more of a ask, seeing as it is our busiest season. To celebrate Spring and the on coming of Summer, I thought I would do a Key Lime Pie inspired recipe. After, many concept I decided on what I call my “Key Lime Kisses” cookie! They are velvety, zesty and divine! By the way, sorry this post is late!
Here is a look at how they turned out…
A little white chocolate.
Scooped out and ready to BAKE!
Delicious coconut lime magic.
And topped them with ground Graham Crackers!
I decided to take them in and shared them with my ASL class. They LOVED them!!! That’s Taj savoring his cookie!
Until next time you guys.
P E A C E + L O V E + B A K I N G !
Today in my kitchen I was looking through recipe idea’s I put together and came across this…”Bacon cupcakes w/ Banana Buttercream topped w/ Peanut Butter drizzle + Chocolate Ganache” I couldn’t think of a better recipe to ‘TEST’ bake; in WinniE’s Bakery kitchen, today.
When it comes to recipes, I draw inspiration from everywhere. I could eat something that I cooked myself or had a restaurant, I could think of something that my Nana used to make for me when I was a child or I could see something on TV; it really can come from anywhere at any time. I always try keep my notebook with me. As of right now, I am deeply inspired by everything that’s happening around me, that’s the magic of SPRING! It’s rebirth, regrowth and renewal, I am so grateful for spring. Remember now, I am in April baby. So, currently I’m writing about 1-2 recipes everyday, sometimes even 3. I hope I didn’t just jinx it!
Hello everyone, happy Monday!
I hope you all had a great weekend!
I’ve been experimenting with a lot of new recipe concept lately and here’s a new one, that I came up with. It’s a reworking of an old recipe that my nana use to make for me. I use to love to have it on weekends or whenever I had a chance to see her!
Her recipe was Honey Banana Peanut Butter pancakes with Milk Chocolate kisses topped with Maple Syrup. I found myself inspired to use all the same components but we work them, in a more unique and innovative way. So, trusting my own artistic sensibilities I went forth and here was they turned out.
“Honey Banana pancakes topped w/ Dark Chocolate chips + Peanut Butter syrup”
2 c. All purpose flour
1 tbsp. sugar
1/4 c. Clover honey
2 1/4 tsp. Baking powder
1/2 tsp. Baking soda
1/2 tsp. Sea salt
2 eggs (at room temp. is best)
2 c. Whole Milk
1 tsp. Vanilla Extract
1/4 c. Unsalted melted butter
2 med. Bananas sliced
In a med. bowl measure and combine all the dry ingredients. Mix well using a whisk. Set aside.
Over medium-low heat, in a small pan melt the butter. Set aside to cool for at least 5minutes.
In a large bowl whisk together, the milk, melted butter and eggs until smoothly combine. In two parts mix the dry ingredients into the wet. Mix until small lumps are visible.
Grease a griddle pan w/ butter or coconut oil . Then, over med. high heat, drop about 1/3 c. of batter. After, pouring the batter onto the griddle place 4-6 banana slices per pancake. Cook until air bubbles appear or for 2-3mins on each side.
Peanut Butter Syrup
1/2 c. Smooth Peanut Butter
1/2 c. Maple Syrup
1 tbsp. warm Water
1/8 tsp. Sea Salt
1 tsp. Unsalted butter
In a small sauce pan, add the maple syrup, salt + peanut butter. Place over low heat. Use a whisk to combine and smooth the mix, about 3mins. Remove from heat, whisk in warm water + butter, to thin the consistency and pour in a small pourable container. Drizzle atop the pancakes and top with dark chocolate pieces, ENJOY!
And for my little niece…”Mickey Mouse Ears” as she calls them!
Top with some Dark Chocolate chips…which also happen to be her favorite!
Now, I am strong believer in the 80/20 rule. For those of you who don’t know what the is it’s 80% conscience + healthy living and 20% just living life as it comes and indulging in the infinite possiblilities and seeking the beauty. But, I never lose sight of the fact I am a Type 1 diabetic and so I should take care of myself and my diabetes, because if I don’t I can’t enjoy the most basic thing I am so passionate about…LIFE. So, as I was enjoying me 20% by eating these decadent pancakes, I was conscience of my medical limitations and only had one…which was more than enough!
Really hope you all enjoy this post and PLEASE leave a comment if you guys tried the recipe. Let me know how you like them and who you shared them with!
