Ok it's not baking but this is pretty much the desserts thread, so - for my wife's birthday we made these no-bake bars where (I'm going by memory here because I wasn't the one looking at the recipe) the bottom is crushed pretzels and peanut butter and powdered sugar and a little melted butter all stand-mixered together and flattened out in the bottom of a pan, and then over that you pour a melted mixture of Ghiradelli 60% cocoa chips and more peanut butter and then just stick it in the fridge 'til solid. Omnomnom so good.

I made this Sarlacc Pit Bundt cake and it was just as goofy as you'd expect.



For buttercream I did the Smitten Kitchen version, but used plain milk instead of bailey's.

And I did a few shortcuts noted below:

I bought madelines instead of making them, mainly because I don't have a madeline pan but also because doing all that to just use 2 cookies seemed crazy.

Since I didn't make madelines I didn't have the batter for tentacles, so I just used some sugar cookie dough rolled into really thin tubes. Baked them for three minutes, then right when I took the cookies out of the oven I pinched them to cool into a more tentacle-like shape. They aren't the crisps shown in the picture, but this way everyone got a tiny cookie on their slice which was way more fun.

I let the first batch of the tentacles go for 7 minutes which turned out to be way too long and they were a little burnt but that was great for the cookie crumbs so it worked out!

I also bought salted caramel sauce even though it's easy to make... because I didn't want to wash any more damn dishes.

This was also the first time I've ever used the bundt cake pan I got as a bridal shower gift almost a decade ago. They're hard to grease!

Hopefully it won't take you millenia to digest it.

Borderlands is not a game I enjoyed all that much. I enjoyed it at first but it eventually felt like a Sisyphean time suck. But that's a good cake.

About the berries on the cake or the fact that this is for an 8 year old's birthday*?

*My assumption based on the number of candles.

It's a overly gory image but it's made excellent use of edible materials with minimal alteration.


And if it IS for an 8 year old, then we can add "disturbing" to my gamut of reactions.

If there's one thing I can say for sure about kids these days, they love violent videogames and the nazi youtubers that talk about them!

Bakers, gaze upon KitchenAid’s glorious new mixer attachment


Quote:
The Sift + Scale attachment screws in to the top of the KitchenAid where the meat grinder could also attach, and it sifts, weighs, and adds ingredients to the mixing bowl in one step. The sift-and-weigh part is key for hardcore bakers who know that precise recipes require the use of a scale, not just kitchen measuring cups, to measure flour, brown sugar, etc. The attachment automatically weighs ingredients, sifts them to the proper consistency (a step I admit I tend to skip when baking), and then slowly incorporates them into the mix at a steady rate.

I decded to try the apple muffin recipe from What Did You Eat Yesterday Vol 12 to use up some leftover apples.

It's much more cupcake-like, or even sugar cookie-like than I expected, but quite good. I made fresh whipped cream and we had some leftover caramel sauce to go with it too.

I found a blog that has a picture of them (the character in the comic narrating the recipe mentions it being adapted from a TV show and I happened to find it):



Anyway, here's how it is the comic with my notes:

Preheat oven to 350
Sift together 1 1/3 cup cake flour and 2 tsp baking powder (I used all-purpose)
Soften 1/3 cup salted butter (I used unsalted and just added salt)
Mix in 1/2 cup sugar a third at a time
Whisk one large egg, add to butter/sugar mixture while mixing (a note: the characters mention only needing one egg a couple panels earlier, but then say "whisk the eggs". I only used one and it came out fine so it's probably just a translation error)
Switch from whisk to spatula, fold in a third of dry ingredients
Add half of 1/3 cup milk, stir in half remaining dry, then the rest of the milk then rest of the flour/powder
Add a few drops of vanilla extract
Stir/fold/mix well
Put into muffin cups, fill about halfway (comic says 8, 12 worked for my muffin pan. They didn't have a pan in the comic so Japan must have different muffin cups?)
Cut up apples into pieces that will fit in your muffin cups (since my muffin cups were much smaller than the ones described I used smaller apple pieces than in the picture. I also left the peel on which I thought looked nice and added a fun crunch.)
Score apple slices, then press a piece into each cup of batter
Sprinkle with sugar
Bake in oven for 25-30 minutes, turning after 15 minutes if oven is uneven
EAT
