Wednesday Replay: August 12, 2020

This is one of those weeks where when I looked back in the archives, I was shouting “YES!” and “I have to make that again ASAP!” The cats are looking at me like I’m crazy. Like they’re shocked that I’m talking to myself…again.

As usual, click the links to go to the recipes.

From 2015, Cherry Pie Bars

cherry pie bars :: like sugar cookie bars and a cherry pie got married ♥

It’s like a cherry pie, and a sugar cookie had a baby. This is one of Mr. E’s favorite. (Mine, too.) 

From 2012, Biscoff-Glazed Soft Oatmeal Cookies

biscoff-glazed soft oatmeal cookies

Oh my. I’d totally forgotten about these. Make them! Make them! 

From 2011, Biscoff (Cookie Butter) Brownies

biscoff (cookie butter) brownies

I must crave Biscoff in August. I’m sensing a theme here. And, oh, what a delicious theme it is. Bottom line: get yourself some Biscoff spread (or Trader Joe’s Cookie Butter) and get baking! 

From 2017, Cocoa Bundt Cake

Cocoa Bundt Cake...a rich and moist chocolate cake with a shiny chocolate glaze. Easy to make and perfect for sharing! | bakeat350.net

We love a Bundt cake around here. None of those dry, heavy Bundt cakes, either. This one is moist, rich, and chocolatey. 

Who’s baking this week?

Healthy One-Bowl Chocolate Granola {5-Ingredient Recipe!}

Learn how to make the best ever healthy chocolate granola! You just need 1 bowl, 5 ingredients, and less than 10 minutes to measure and mix everything together.

ULTIMATE Best Easy Healthy Gluten Free Dairy Free Dark Chocolate Granola

 
During my senior year of college, I signed up to take the GRE Chemistry subject test. I had already been working in an organic chemistry research lab on campus for more than two years, where I spent most of my spare moments not in lectures or completing problem sets dressed in a long white coat and safety goggles while running reactions and analyzing the results right alongside the grad students, so applying for graduate school to continue doing that seemed like the next right step in my academic career.

The exam was held bright and early one Saturday morning during the fall in the neighboring city. One of the sweet grad students in my lab let me borrow her old GRE textbooks, practice tests, and study guides, so I pored over them in the weeks leading up to the test, in addition to keeping up with my usual homework assignments and quizzes.
 

ULTIMATE Best Easy Healthy Homemade Dark Chocolate Granola Clusters

 
For a motivational boost, I walked over to the grocery store directly across the street from my apartment to find a fun study snack. Somehow, treating myself to apple slices and carrot sticks just didn’t feel like that big of a reward for acing any of those practice tests!

As I wandered through the store, I spotted a display at the end of the breakfast cereal aisle that featured a brand new product: large whole grain chocolate cereal pockets with chocolate filling. My eyes lit up, and a box magically found its way into my basket.

I’ve always been a huge chocoholic… Even back then! (One of the many reasons I wrote my Healthier Chocolate Treats cookbook!)
 

ULTIMATE Best Easy Healthy Low Calorie Gluten Free Dark Chocolate Granola

 
Back at my apartment, I tore open the bag to try a few pieces of the cereal. It tasted absolutely delicious — sweet, crunchy, and chocolaty! — and as soon as I completed another worksheet and practice exam, I poured myself a small ramekin to enjoy.

Within just a few days, I had started to fly through the material, and I felt more and more confident as the exam date approached. That chocolate cereal definitely helped with my motivation levels, and I ended up with a great score on the real GRE Chemistry subject test!
 

ULTIMATE Best Easy Healthy Low Fat Crunchy Dark Chocolate Granola Clusters

 
However… This Healthy Five-Ingredient Chocolate Granola would’ve been an even better study snack! Unlike that store-bought cereal with ample amounts of refined sugar and artificial flavors, this wholesome homemade breakfast cereal contains none of that. Yet it’s still just as sweet and crunchy — and it’s even more rich and chocolaty!

This healthy chocolate granola contains no butter, oil, dairy, refined flour or sugar… But it still has the biggest and crunchiest clusters imaginable! It’s also super easy to make. You just need 1 bowl, 5 ingredients, and less than 10 minutes to measure and mix together the ingredients!

The Classic Birthday Cake

King Arthur Classic Birthday Cake | apt 2b baking co

King Arthur Classic Birthday Cake | apt 2b baking co

It’s birthday season in Apartment 2 (we lost the B in our move, years ago) and you all know I love a big ol birthday cake. I have to admit that I have been a chocolate cake/vanilla frosting devotee for many years but after trying this yellow cake recipe my preference just may be flipping upside down. It is straight from King Arthur so you can head on over to their site to check it out.

The method for mixing the cake is a little unusual, but it gives this cake a really nice crumb and moist texture. I find yellow/white cakes can be kind of bland and dry, but not this one! Make sure to use high quality cocoa powder in the frosting, it makes a huge difference.

I loved these when I made them way back when, and really think I need to make them again. Make them for any state just by moving the wording around.

Notre Dame released a new, updated version of the fan-favorite “Here Come the Irish” video over the weekend and it’s fantastic.
