Mixed Berry Cake Or Muffins

Measuring Spoons   Mixed Berry Cake or Muffins

I also make this with a sugar substitute and gluten-free with Pamela’s Gluten Free Baking and Pancake Mix, please read package directions.  If you are using a sugar substitute be sure to start off with a small amount and taste test the batter to add more, you can always add but not take away.

Please remember to use Vanilla Extract for the best taste.

Leave 1 stick unsalted butter out for a 1/2 hour to soften.  Room temperature for half and half, and eggs.

Bake at 350 Degrees, times will vary.

In a separate bowl sift these dry ingredients.

1 ¾  Cups Unbleached Flour OR Gluten Free Mix

1 ¾  teaspoons  Baking Powder (Omit if using above g.f. mix)

¼  teaspoon Salt (Omit if using above g.f. mix)

In an electric mixer bowl cream butter and sugar (Sugar substitute)

1 stick unsalted butter

1 Cup sugar

Once they are creamed turn off mixer and add:

2 Large Eggs

1 teaspoon Vanilla Extract

Mix until blended in.  Turn off mixer and add:

1/2 Cup  Half and Half

1 Tablespoon Sour Cream

2 Tablespoons Agave Nectar

Add dry ingredients slowly

Mix until well blended. Then add:

1 Cup of frozen mixed berries, mix in well

Once it is well blended (mixed) turn off and let rest for 1 to 2 minutes.  Then you are ready to fill the cake/muffin tins.

Let cool and frost with your favorite whipped cream or cream cheese icing.

Enjoy this summer treat.  Jay

Nut Cookie Recipe

This nut cookie can be made with one of the following nuts; pecans, or walnuts. This recipe is over 90 years old and has been modified.

I have not had a call for gluten free nut cookies, so do  experiment with Pamela’s Gluten Free Baking & Pancake Mix just substitute the same amount as the flour.

If you are using the Gluten Free Mix you will not need to add Baking Powder or Salt

It is a simple recipe with minimal ingredients and no butter.

Bake at 325 degrees for 7-10  minutes or until done, do watch the cookies do not burn.  If the tops are firm to the touch they are done! 

In a small bowl using a fork or small whisk mix and set aside:

1 Large Egg

2 Tablespoons Extra Light Olive Oil

Sift together in electric  mixer bowl:

1 Cup Unbleached Flour

1/2 Cup Sugar

2 teaspoons Baking Powder

1/2 teaspoon Salt

Now Add Egg and Oil mixture to dry ingredients, then add:

2 teaspoons Lemon Juice

1/4 Cup Milk (half and half can be used if you like)

Mix until a soft dough is formed, then add:  

1 Cup of Chopped Nuts of your choosing

Mix well and drop by small spoonfuls on a cookie sheet lined with parchment paper allowing space for spreading.
