Its baking time!
So we all enjoy a little sweet stuff every now and then. Ok well maybe not so much since my diet but I still have to keep the troops happy with some dessert. So I gave King Arthur’s chocolate lava cake mix a try.
Dying, right? UGH! I have got to say it came out quite good. This mix was so easy to make and so good it is ridiculous. It only took about 30 minutes, including the time it too to find the custard cups. I love how the chocolate flows out of the cake upon first stab. They are re real good right out the oven and a scoop of vanilla ice cream on top…. or so I’ve heard. My husband loves them and my kids just love the hot chocolate fudge center. The only thing I will do different next time is get more mix.
Now onto something a bit more healthy. I’m not sure if any of you have tried dieting or even eating well in a house of non-dieters, but temptation in the past but it is rough. You want to eat well, but no one else in the house has to, or is willing to. So you are stuck either being very jealous or feeding everyone else the diet food too. Often getting at least one complaint- “this doesn’t taste normal”. So sneaking in some healthy is a a tricky for somethings.
King Arthur has made a white whole wheat flour that helps with this. It has the nutrients of a whole wheat flour but none of the brown and specks of a whole wheat flour. So it can be used in place of regular flour easily and without fuss, which is of course always the goal of a good meal. No fuss, no religion, no politics- will at least give you a good start at the table.
We have made pizza crust, pie crust, rue, and of course bread. My personal favorite is the pizza crust. It came out so good, and it is healthier, so it’s great. My husband has perfected it. Its all about good flour, a real hot oven, and a pizza stone.
