Cake Truffles

I made cake truffles today. I wasn’t going to put them on the blog (so I didn’t really take any pictures) but Alex insisted. The easiest thing to make and assemble and it’s his favorite. It’s also a great way to show off sprinkles. It’s September now so I used my autumn leaf sprinkles and orange and yellow sparkle gels.

I made baklava for the first time today. This is the fist time I’ve baked with filo pastry and I think my first attempt was admirable. I learned a lot and know what to do for round 2 to make a superb batch! I’ve adjusted the recipe below so should you decide to make it your first batch should turn out excellent!

I wanted to make something really fun for national cupcake week but also quick since it’s a weeknight! I decided to try out the “Perfectly Chocolate” Hershey’s cupcake recipe. It’s essentially a one bowl recipe and I was curious to see if it compared to the Martha chocolate one I’m fond of.

I decided it was time to make more whoopie pies! They can be whipped up pretty quickly so they were great for a Saturday afternoon. I made the same chocolate sandwich as before and made the coconut filling from the whoopie pies book.

Chocolate Peanut Butter Ebelskivers
-
Ebelskivers are Danish pancakes. Peanut butter isn’t a traditional flavor but I got an Ebelskiver cookbook at William Sonoma (also the place to get an Ebelskiver pan) and it inspired me to make my own flavor combination. Ebelskivers are fun because so many flavors can be mixed and matched and they’re as easy to make as regular pancakes!
