Rum and cranberry cookies (vegan)

I baked cookies today, from my own recipe! Unfortunately I wasn’t naked, but it was cold and stuff. Here’s how to try my recipe too!
Ingredients!
4oz soya margerine
4oz demerara sugar
150gs dark chocolate
A pinch of cinnamon
Four tbsp of golden syrup
A generous splash of rum
Four tbsp of cocoa powder
8oz plain flour
Two tsp baking powder
A handful of dried currants
A generous amount of cranberries
Preheat oven to gas mark 3/175degrees

Melt the marg, chocolate, syrup and sugar together in a saucepan until smooth then take off heat. Add the cinnamon, currants and rum whilst it cools. Then, mix in the cocoa, flour and baking powder and finish off with adding the cranberries and (if you want) some more chocolate chips. Grease three baking trays really really well, then roll the dough into balls and place on tray. Warning- the dough is very sticky! It will also spread a lot in the oven so place them quite far apart. Bake in the oven for 15-20 minutes and leave to cool on the trays before removing them onto wire racks.

The final cookies with be quite brittle so be careful, however they taste like heaven 🙂 feel free to mess around with the ingredients- i certainly do! I baked mine very rum heavy, just how I like them.

Debbimouse, (full of cookies) over and out.

NAKED CUPCAKE TIME!

It came to my attention recently that although I say in my tagline that I post baking tips and nudist experiences, i have yet to do EITHER. So this is intended to rectify that oversight.

NAKED BAKING TIME!!!

>Baking is the most fun when done naked, mostly naked, half naked or in a balldress/wedding dress. Normal dress makes normal cakes, but we the chosen few with the balls to discover new things, will make AWESOME cakes :3

>Most important thing to do before you start baking is to make sure you have the right ingredients and equipment. BE PREPARED. I rarely preweigh out things as i use guessimation as my biggest tool, but you can do that if you have no idea what 250gs of flour looks like.

>My passion is for finding new recipes for dairy free, or egg free, or glueton free cakes, desserts, puddings and treats. Replacements, alternatives and improvements. I take recipes as a guideline and make my own rules. It is SO MUCH FUN.

Now, down to business. Behold, my latest baking experiments….
RUM AND RAISIN CUPCAKES!!!
From Vegan Cupcakes Take Over The World by Isa Chandra Moskowitz & Terry Hope Romero
They were a definite success, although as they become less fresh I recommend icing them! The recipe was 100% vegan and one of the first American recipes I’ve used that i didn’t struggle with. American recipes often require ingredients i don’t have and cannot easily obtain, and have bizarre measurement proportions. For example the recipe claimed to make a batch of twelve. I made nearly thirty reasonably sized cupcakes. Something us brits have to look out for as an American cupcake appears to be three times the size of what we would call a cupcake!
Debbimouse over and out for now!
