    Azeruth's First Cupcakes



    Normally I bake a few cookies as a dessert every couple of days but since those are just pre-made dough squares I thought it would be too cheap to enter it. So I decided to make cupcakes for the first time since I like cupcakes and I may as well use this as an excuse to learn how to make some.


    Ingredients and Directions

    Spoiler:
    One box of cake mix (said it makes 24 cupcakes)
    Vegetable Oil (1/2 cup)
    Water (1 and a 1/2 cups)
    Egg Whites (4 Whites)
    Frosting (I chose White because I'm boring)
    Cupcake Cups and Pans
    Optional: Sprinkles/Jimmies/Artistic Ability

    Pre-heat oven to 350 degrees Fahrenheit.
    Put cake mix into a bowl.
    Add 1/2 a cup of vegetable oil, 1 and a 1/2 cups of water, and 4 egg whites.
    Mix for about 2 minutes until batter is ready.
    Fill cupcake cups halfway with the batter.
    Put into oven for about 20 minutes.
    Toothpick test the center and when done, carefully remove and let sit for 15 minutes.
    Remove from pans and place on plates.
    Add frosting when cupcakes are cool enough.
    Dump half the sprinkles on the floor.
    Enjoy.

    I went with one of my favorite cookies, snickerdoodle and added a little something extra and turned it into a snickerdoodle cookie coffee ice cream sandwich. Twas my first time making these kind of cookies too. I didn't burn the cookies so yay! And the flavor with the ice cream was the right match; the coffee ice cream toned down the sweetness of the cookie and made the whole thing creamy.
    I made the cookies at night and the next day I put the ice cream sandwich together.
    My second idea would have been macaron ice cream, but screw that. I can't even make macarons. I've tried a dozen times and they didn't turn out good. So I went with snickerdoodles.



    Nice cool treat on a hot evening.




    Spoiler: Ingredients and process

    I followed the recipe of . Only thing I didn't have was the cream of tartar so I just squeezed a tad bit of lemon into the mix.


    Mixing up the dough.


    Rolled them up into balls and put them on the tray for baking. I also used Pam's baking nonstick spray.


    Some remaining dough that didn't fit on the tray. Two large ones and I put those in after baking the first batch.


    They came out a little thicker, but was nice and fluffy on the inside and crispy outside.
    The recipe said I should have used 400 F........ but I knew my oven would char them and so I just set them at 330 F ish and in for about 9 minutes.

    Gordon Ramsay's Soul's Spiced Apple Cake

    Spoiler: Ingredients


    FOR THE CAKE:
    1/2 cup plain flour
    1 tsp baking powder
    pinch of salt
    2 Tbsp superfine sugar
    1/4 cup butter
    1 large egg
    1 tsp vanilla extract
    3/8 cup milk
    zest from 1 orange

    FOR THE APPLES:
    4 braeburn apples
    1/4 cup butter
    2 Tbsp clear honey
    1/2 cup dates, diced
    1 tsp ground cinnamon1 Tbsp sliced almonds


    Preparation

    1. Preheat oven to 350 degF

    2. For the cake mixture, sift flour and baking powder into a large bowl with the salt and superfine sugar. Cut in the butter and rub together with your fingers until you form a bread crumb texture (or use a food processor).
    3. Beat the egg in a measuring bowl with the vanilla extract, then pour in milk (up to about 1/2 cup mark). Add the milk and egg to the flour mixture and bring together to form the cake. Add a little orange zest (leaving most for the apple mixture), and mix through.

    Spoiler: Step 2 and 3





    4. Peel, core and dice the apples. Add the butter to a hot frying pan and toss the apples before caramelizing with the honey. Add the chopped dates and cinnamon to the pan along with the rest of the orange zest. Cook for a few minutes, making sure that the apples are evenly coated with honey.



    5. Divide the cooked apples into individual baking dishes (approx 1 cup each).

    Spoiler: Step 5


    6. Use a piping bag to squeeze a thin layer of the cake mixture on top. Sprinkle sliced almonds on top of the cake mixture.



    7. Bake for 18 minutes until golden brown and risen in the center.

    Spoiler: Step 7


    8. Serve the individual cakes with a scoop of vanilla ice cream and a dusting of powdered sugar.

    Spoiler: Step 8
    Didn't do it because I didn't buy ice cream ):


    And that's it. Hope you like it.

    Spoiler: Signature


    Recommend a bit less than 1/4 cup of butter, but that's just me.
