The trail of chocolate cakes, biscuits and other sweeties continues to flow from the Kitschenette household...
In previous weeks I have made bumper batches of chocolate chippers, biscotti and mailänderli.
I made two double batches of christmas cake (slightly different recipe for each batch, one with nuts, the other without- see Nige's recipe for christmas cake here).
Yesterday I made a double batch of brownies.
This afternoon Max and I made chocolate fudge for all the kids at his kindy.
Just now two flourless chocolate and cognac cakes are baking in the oven (one for dessert tomorrow night when my lovely friends E and K are visiting, and oen for the staff at the Chinderhuus).
And I have yet to decide on what to make for dessert for Christmas dinner at Bruno's parents on Saturday night, other than fruitcake....
I've gotten to the point where I can't look another biscuit/guetzle, brownie or nibblet of anything sweet in the eye anymore. I've been craving salty foods, which is very unlike me. And I'd like my evenings back, please. As much as I love baking (and I DO love it), I don't want to do it every evening!
But, all our friends and neighbours have seemed to like their little bags of sweet offerings, wrapped up and tied with ribbon and signed personally by Max, so that I feel like my time has been well-spent.
Brownies by the dozen here at the Red Kitchen, anyone?
