Happy Easter to my Christian friends and I hope my Jewish friends had a lovely Passover Friday night. We are also celebrating Owen’s 4th birthday tomorrow. So Josh and I invented a new recipe this morning – Owen’s Easter Birthday Doughnuts. Owen asked for blue ones and had selected flower sprinkles already. These were moist and delicious. We used our baked doughnut pan.
2 cups flour
3/4 cup sugar
2tsp. baking powder
1 dash salt
1 tbsp. butter, melted
2 beaten eggs
3/4 cup milk
1 tsp. vanilla
1/4 tsp. cinnamon
3 Tablespoons chocolate syrup
1 Tablespoon sprinkles in batter, then more on top
3/4 cup semi-sweet chocolate chips
Combine these things in order. Bake at 325 for 10 – 12 minutes, until top springs back. Makes 9.
Joshua had his first show at a library Friday. It was so much fun. We taught measurement, kitchen safety, how to crack and separate eggs, how to make and roll a pie crust, then we made a refrigerator dessert. He is booked up through the summer and we’re looking forward to this. He handed out cookbooks of his recipes and handouts with tips. Great fun!
