Last Monday night I was gifted another opportunity to bake in the test-lab. I know that these baking affairs will eventually become a routine part of my work schedule, but for now I still relish them.
On the docket for Monday were Whole Grain Oatmeal Cranberry Cookies, Baked Chocolate Donuts, Whole Grain Pumpkin Scones, Molasses Cookies and Lemon Ginger Scones.
Some white chocolate chunks may have found their way into that batter. It just felt right.
Before I started mixing these, I tried to recall the last time I'd eaten a doughnut. Then I remembered the Saturday morning that a box of Dunkin' Donuts that showed up at work a couple of weeks ago. Those doughnuts were fried. These are baked! Yay for healthiness!
Special donut pans are required for this donut-makin' party.
I would eat these donuts everyday. Very chocolatey. Then I would pat myself on the back for being so health-conscience.
Mid-baking another baker (P.J. Hamel) offered me a small slice of pie. It was divine. I can't remember exactly which type of apples she used, but they were mighty good.
