|Zucchini bread, Pumpkin Bread and Blueberry Cake|
On top of Breakfast Club and ice cream, I found a recipe for pumpkin butterscotch cookies I've been dying to try. What's one more recipe? I spent this evening making zucchini bread, pumpkin bread, pumpkin butterscotch cookies, blueberry cake and ice cream base. There will be lots of happy people tomorrow!
For me, baking is synonymous with disaster area. The kitchen is cluttered with piles of measuring cups and bowls, dirty pans and cookie sheets. All of it dusted with flour and bits of cinnamon or nutmeg. When I'm cooking this many things, they're all in different stages, so I'll be mixing batter at the same time I'm baking or having items cool. I usually run out of counter space halfway through the evening.
But what a haul! Zucchini bread that squirrels would die for (or at least chew through window screens to get at). Nutty pumpkin bread. Golden brown blueberry cake with Newbury blueberries - I can't wait to have a slice. Lastly, the pumpkin cookies - the brand new recipe. They're a bit odd looking. Not quite as pretty as the photo on the recipe. It's a cake cookie, so it's light and sweet. But I like the flavor. I think they're a keeper.
