If you visit my blog often, or even once in awhile, you will quickly notice that I LOVE to bake. I have said it before, and will probably will say it tons more, I would bake all day, everyday, if I could. And I got my chance last Saturday, well at least, part of the day (12 – 5:30)
With the boys back in school, I wanted to bake some breakfast snacks that they could grab and go, since we leave the house at 7 a.m. to take them to school.
Even though I spent 5 1/2 hours baking, I got a lot done. I find it easier to do lots of baking at one time.
- All of the ingredients are out
- The measuring cups are already dirty
- The oven is preheated
- The kitchen is a mess, so why not get lots done
- It frees up time during the week
One of the new tasks that I tried this time was having a tub of hot, soapy water in the sink to throw the dirty utensils in. It worked great and made clean up much quicker.
So what did I end up with for my fruits of labor?
Zucchini Bread ~ 13 mini loaves ~ I froze some, shared some and we will eat a lot
Zucchini Muffins ~ I used a new recipe and they turned out great
Blueberry Muffins ~ An old stand-by
Blueberry Cupcakes ~ I was excited to get the Cupcake Tuesday cupcakes done a little earlier this week
Breakfast Cookies ~ These turned out a little dry, I need to make them again and perfect the recipe before sharing it
Peanut Butter Swirl Bars ~ The boys are a little tired of all the zucchini, and you can see these were the first to disappear
Chocolate Zucchini Cake ~ The best, we love this
