Recipe Round-Up

What is good, Bakers Anonymous?

Yeah. I’m just going to leave that out there and move right onto something else. How about some deliciously simple recipes?

These Neapolitan cupcakes from iheart2stamp combine strawberry cake mix with chewy brownie bottom and vanilla frosting. Feel like mixing it up? Why not top with rainbow chip frosting? Use caramel turtle brownies and yellow cake mix? I love a versatile recipe.

The absolutely NEXT batch of cookies I bake is going to be these Cool Whip cookies with Sprinkles from Happy-Go-Lucky. I already have cake mix, sprinkles and one egg. I just need a container of Cool Whip. Saturday afternoon baking, here I come!

Looking for a bright, sweet (and holiday-like) cookie? Try these cherry chocolate kisses from The Curvy Carrot. I love maraschino cherries, milk chocolate kisses (I’m so going to buy a bag tomorrow) and almond extract. These are definitely going on my t0-bake list!

Sometimes you just want a change from cookies. Why not make this salted caramel pretzel bark from Mama Say What?! Not just her, but many others have declared this “crack bark.” So addicting, so delectable that you can’t stop eating, even if your tummy starts to hurt.

And if you have more available counter space, make this cookies and cream Oreo breakaway from Bakers Royale. A tray of white chocolate or milk chocolate coating and a sleeve or two of Oreos AND you have yumminess.

Saturday Recipe Round-up, week 9

My dearest Bakers Anonymous family, I can’t even begin to express how crazy of a week this has been. And it’s only Saturday.

Sure, I’m going to spend this day doing laundry and a million other miscellaneous things, but this one day, this Saturday for which I’ve been waiting the entire week is finally here. Thank you, Jesus. So, let’s check out some baked things.

Starting with the healthy stuff, check out this recipe for homemade granola from Krissy’s Creations. I do love granola bars (especially the ones from Sunbelt. Have you ever had those? There’s COCONUT in them. OMG, I die) and now I can easily make my own! What’s that? I hear applause for no preservatives. And this recipe lasts for a month! A MONTH!

Switching gears, how about some chocolate chip cookie dough billionaire bars from the BrownEyedBaker? Made with egg-free cookie dough, this bar is a multi-layered treat featuring shortbread crust, caramel, cookie dough and a chocolate glaze! Not for the faint of heart.

Have a birthday party coming up? Try making this “perfectly delightful” vanilla birthday cake from Sweetapolita. You can do any color variation and it will taste (and look) amazing!

Or, if you’re in the mood for just some delicious cake, use this chocolate chip banana cake recipe from Bakers Royale. It comes with cream cheese frosting! You know you want to. 😀

And, if you’re in the mood for banana cake, but don’t want the “guilt,” try one of these banana pudding cupcakes from Confessions of  a Cookbook Queen. It’s topped with mounds of fluffy, white frosting and filled with banana pudding. Umm, yes please.

I’m off to go to do laundry or maybe something else productive. Who knows? – Niki

Saturday recipe round-up, week 8

Ah, June. What do we here at Bakers Anonymous think of this month? Not much, to be honest. June is the herald of summer, our least favorite season. Unless you have primo air conditioning (like I currently do at my house), the desire to make baked goods is absolutely nowhere to be found. And while I love no-bake treats as much as the next person, sometimes you just want a chewy, fresh-baked cookie, you know?

These strawberry lemonade cupcakes from Confessions of a Cookbook Queen perfectly express the summertime sentiments without bringing all the nasty humidity into your house. I just love the bright colored frosting!

Cookie Madness brings us this sour cream chocolate and butterscotch chip cake that is actually more of a loaf than a real cake, and requires no extra rising time. And did you notice that delicious-looking glaze on top? I did.

More summer madness is brought to you by Krissy’s Creations: red velvet funnel cake! Let that one sink in again – red velvet funnel cake. Mmm. I can smell the carnivals and farm fairs already.

If you don’t want to fry anything, let these baked confetti donuts take center stage at your picnic table. All you need is a donut pan (why, why, why don’t I have one of those yet?) and a jar full of sprinkles. The Sweet Life even baked them straight into the batter!

I love oranges and I love white chocolate chips, but I don’t love creamsicles. They just taste super nasty to me. Perhaps these pretty orange creamsicle cookies from Six Sister’s Stuff will taste much better than their ice cream counterparts? Here’s hoping.

Those are our early summer treats! Enjoy your first few days of June, everyone. I’m off to watch Snow White and the Huntsman. Mmm, Chris Hemsworth. Now he’s a tasty cookie I’d enjoy in any weather. 😉 – Niki

Saturday Recipe Round-up

Good afternoon, Bakers Anonymous! It’s Saturday, and I’ve got stuff to do. Am I going to do it? Probably not. And that’s quite all right with me. In other news, it’s time for our weekly recipe round-up. We’ve got plenty of sweet treats for you to enjoy.

Alaska Mom made these delicious looking Banana Chocolate Chip cookies. I agree with her note to put walnuts into the cookies. Who doesn’t want a sweet crunch with their chocolate?

I found these amazing Oreo Cheesecake Bites at Six Sister’s Stuff, a blog I recently discovered on my many (many) perusings of the Internet. My favorite part of the recipe is that the cheesecake only needs to bake for 45 minutes and doesn’t require a water bath. Simplicity at its finest.

The ever lovely Confessions of a Cookbook Queen created these exorbitantly delicious Chocolate Cookies and Cream Cupcakes. Did you notice that the chocolate frosting is dipped in chocolate?!

Feeling adventurous, and maybe a little French? Try this banana bread crepe cake with butterscotch from Smitten Kitchen. You can even make the crepes by themselves and enjoy an international breakfast.

My Baking Addiction showcased these Coconut-Mocha Cupcakes. I am a huge coconut fan, not so much on the mocha, but look at that dark color! It looks so rich and dense.

Bakers Anonymous’ favorites!

It seems that every time I get around to updating, something gets in my way, like homework, my boyfriend, or that last batch of cookies that’s calling my name. This week is my birthday week, so I’ve been even more distracted than usual. Fear not! I have a lot to talk about, including this week’s favorites and a special interview with one of Rowan University’s own bakers.

My best friend’s website, A Food Coma, is one of my most favorite food blogs. She’s vegetarian, loves fresh food, and ALWAYS lets me sneak a piece of whatever she’s making. Her Blueberry Key Lime Tart is certainly worth tasting!

At Home in Alaska has done it again, and this time she’s provided an excellent muffin recipe. I can’t wait to see how my own take on Apple Cinnamon Walnut Muffins turn out.

The latest series of cake pop posts from Bakerella make me cry a little on the inside. They’re so adorable! I can’t help but love the sheep and bunny cakies.

I am all about the sour cream chocolate chip cupcakes from Cooking for Comfort. The smooth frosting looks so tempting!

The chewy amaretti cookies that I spotted on Smitten Kitchen look amazing. I’m always looking for ways to incorporate almond paste or marzipan, and this seems perfect.

The classic combo of peanut butter and chocolate was featured in Something New is Cooking‘s Peanut Butter Chocolate Pie. I bet it tastes like a giant Reese’s cup!
