Test Bake II

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.

The pumpkin scones were very moist and harvesty.

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.

Then came Molasses cookies! All covered in sugar!

Last, but not least, came the Lemon Ginger Scones. Also laden in crunchy sugar.

Tomorrow is a baking class in the Baking Education Center!


  1. OMG. You just better start running to and from work, maybe you should just sell your car? But then again those chocolate baked donuts are healthy so maybe you should just eat more?
