The February 2011 Daring Bakers’ challenge was hosted by Mallory from A Sofa in the Kitchen. She chose to challenge everyone to make Panna Cotta from a Giada De Laurentiis recipe and Nestle Florentine Cookies.
I found both the cookies and the panna cotta to be easy to make and involved ingredients I had on hand. Both items were well-liked by my roommates and were eaten almost instantly.
This week I made Sour Cream Pound Cake. It was made with non-fat sour cream, but still tasted good. My roommates ate almost all of it, so that’s a good sign that it looked as good as it tasted. Pretty basic recipe with items you generally have on hand.
…and all of these other ingredients,
(flour, sugar, salt, baking soda, vanilla extract, eggs, baking powder, sour cream, lemons, poppy seeds)
make LEMON POPPY-SEED MUFFINS!
I made 6 muffins and 1 loaf because I don’t have a muffin tin that holds 12 muffins.
They are truly easy to make and are quite tasty, too!
Happy February! Also, happy…Chinese New Year (Year of the Rabbit-my year!), Boy Scout Day, President’s Day, Valentines Day, Black History Month, and American Heart Month! Did you know so many holidays happen in February? Such a short month, and so much going on-including what’s happening in the following articles: (nice segue, huh?)
