Ok - off to look at the first page - whats snickerdoodle cookies?
I had no idea what snickerdoodle was until DH brought it up a while ago~ it's basically butter/sugar cookie with a coating of sugar + cinnamon~
I think I'm going to make this as soon as the humidity breaks.
[FONT="]Sugar-free carrot cake recipe
[FONT="] 160g carrot, grated (for an even healthier version, substitute up to 50% of the carrots with parsnips!! It doesnt ruin the taste, I promise.)[/FONT]
[FONT="] 30ml buttermilk (non-dairy milk works just as well, see note below)*[/FONT]
[FONT="] 60g mashed banana + 40ml oil (I use 20ml olive oil, 20ml rapeseed oil) OR 100ml oil (I use 40ml sunflower oil, 40ml rapeseed oil, 20ml olive oil)[/FONT]
[FONT="] 135g dates (not the sweetened ones, just plain dates)[/FONT]
[FONT="] ½ tsp vanilla (I use vanilla powder, but you can also use vanilla essence)[/FONT]
[FONT="] 2 medium eggs[/FONT]
[FONT="] 135g whole-wheat self-raising flour (or 130g plain whole-wheat flour + 1¼tsp baking powder)[/FONT]
[FONT="] ½tsp bicarbonate of soda[/FONT]
¾tsp baking powder
½ tsp cinnamon
½tsp ginger (or, if like me you rather like ginger, you can use fresh grated ginger and increase the amount slightly. I just grate it in with the carrots)
big pinch of nutmeg
[FONT="]Place dates in a small pan with a little bit of water, about 30ml. Simmer for about 10 minutes, adding a little more water if necessary. Do not allow to boil dry. Blend the dates with the remaining water (or add a little more if necessary) to make a paste. I normally use a stick blender.[/FONT]
[FONT="]Mix together the carrots, milk, dates, oil, banana (if used), vanilla and eggs using an electric mixer.[/FONT]
[FONT="]Add all the dry ingredients, and mix again until thoroughly combined.[/FONT]
[FONT="]Bake in a 20cm diameter cake tin in a preheated 190°C oven for 30-40 minutes. Some ovens may require a slightly lower temperature.[/FONT]
*if you don't have buttermilk or don't want to use dairy milk, you can use ½tsp cider vinegar mixed with 30ml ordinary milk or a non-dairy alternative (my favourite non-dairy alternative is home-made, additive-free, rice milk)
OOO, ReadyORNot, that looks so good! (and your name makes the Fugees song pop into my head )
This is a great thread!!
One of my all-time favourite cookies recipes is for "Banana Chocolate Chip Softies"
You can find the recipe here.
These cookies are super easy to make, freeze well, and have a unique soft muffin-like texture!
Mmm~~ I need to start baking again~ all looked soooooooooo good!!
I think I'll be making all of these...holy cow!
Please do!! & take some picture too!
Oo.. congratulations on your Valentine's BFP!!!!
Bump I wanted to re-subscribe as somehow I got unsubscribed
Yum! I want a snickerdoodle now!
I cannot remember where I found the recipe but it makes a lovely pastry/strudle like dessert!
It is just a rolled out sheet of puff pastry, unless you make your own its easy to buy ready roll, turn over the edges, top with a mix of apricot jam and creme fraiche then scatter blueberries and slices of peaches/apricots. You can mix and match any fruit with jams you like. Pop in a hot oven for about 15mins and all ready. Lovely and light.
How hot do you have the oven? That sounds good!
