Like my granddaughter says....it's HALLo-ween!!! In a week. Trick or treat candy is on sale everywhere. I tried one year to give out an alternative ( like more healthy) alternative and gave out Halloween pencils. I found them broken on two down the walk. So much for healthy. LOL
I love recipes for sweets that call for things I always have in the pantry.
1 cup sugar
1/3 cup cocoa ( not drinking cocoa)
1/4 cup flour
2-1/4 cups water
1 T butter
1 tsp vanilla
Baked pastry shell.
in large saucepan, sugar, cocoa, flour and salt. Gradually add water. Stirring with a wisk. Bring to a boil and stir for 1 minute until thickened. Remove from heavy. Stir in butter and vanilla. Pour into baked shell and refrigerate several hours . Garnish with whip cream.
Blueberry pound cake
1 cup butter, softened
3 cups sugar
1-1/2 tsp vanilla
3 cups flour
1/4 tsp soda
1 cup sour cream
3 cups blueberries
Makes 2 loaves
In mixing bowl, cream the butter and sugar. Add vanilla and eggs, one at a time.
Mix dry ingredients together.
Mix in dry ingredients and sour cream , alternatively on thirds,
Place in greased loaf pans (2) and bake at 350 for a hour or until toothpick inserted in center comes out clean. Cool ten minutes before removing from pans.
Note: I have not been seeing blueberries fresh lately. There are frozen at Costco. Many tomes, they call for more than necessary to effect a good loaf.
Recipe can be cut in half for a single loaf, or freeze for a emergency back up for company.
I would reduce real sugar and add some fake, or use all fake. A good way to use up sour cream that needs to be used up,
Thanks for stopping by
