Double Chocolate Cupcakes with Bailey’s Buttercream Icing


Mmmmmm, St.Patricks Day. This year, instead of sitting around and thinking about all the delicious baked goods out there with green icing and green sprinkles on them, I decided that I would take action and do a little baking myself. What’s on the menu, you ask? Double chocolate cupcakes with Bailey’s Buttercream Icing. Now if that doesn’t spark your fancy this St.Patricks day then you are going to be hooped! I mean, out of the loop. Continue reading

Chocolate Tim Tam Cookies, Laos style

Usually The Male Baker does his work alone, but not this time. This time I had 4 sous bakers-in-training helping me out. You may be thinking, ‘the more the merrier’, but these students had never baked before and their first language wasn’t even English. Continue reading

Cranberry Oatmeal Cornflake Cookies

For those of you who think a cookie needs chocolate to be enjoyable, think again. Take a bite into one of these healthy goods and it will make your heart flutter and your chocolate craving taste buds will be changed forever. After not being able to bake for over 50 days (yes, I had withdrawals!), I was given the opportunity to use a friend’s oven in Bangkok.

I got to bake three times in the span of a week, but to be honest, these cookies were the only ones that turned out. I definitely was feeling a bit rusty on my skills. I made a batch of pretzel chocolate cookies as well as some pumpkin muffins, but neither came out the way I would have liked, which explains why they haven’t and won’t make the blog. Only the best for you guys!

The story behind these cookies is even better than how they tasted. Continue reading

2011 year in review

The stats helper monkeys from WordPress prepared a 2011 annual report for The Male Baker!

The concert hall at the Syndey Opera House holds 2,700 people. This blog was viewed about 13,000 times in 2011. If it were a concert at Sydney Opera House, it would take about 5 sold-out performances for that many people to see it. Booya!!!
