Gingerly All Spice Scones You Will Love

After a long time of pondering about scones, I decided to give them a whirl. It took me so long to bake a batch because I’d heard they were so complicated. I heard everything from “Oh scones take years to master,” to “it is so hard to get the right consistency,” to “scones take so much time.” I didn’t want to believe it, so instead of listening to those pessimistic downers, I took out some recipe books that I trusted the most and searched for a scone recipe that would be my first one as a baker. The Male Baker as a matter of fact! I saw a recipe in my trusted Baked book and I decided to use it as a base.

To give these scones my own flare, Continue reading

Quick and Delicious Chocolate Chip Cookies

My quest has begun for concocting the best chocolate chip cookie. Most bakers go through this challenge once in their lifetime and it does take quite a while to find the perfect batter. My trick was to try out many different recipes and to use little touches that I enjoyed the most from each one . Now, after baking dozens of different kinds, I have found the first recipe that I would like to share with you. Although it may not be the last one that I show you, I can guarantee that these will be a hit!

This recipe follows Continue reading

Sweet and Simple Red and White Cookies

An original from The Male Baker kitchen! I just got sick of using other recipes and only adding my own touches. Instead I made this recipe from scratch and it went great. The last few weeks I have been doing a lot of research about proportions in baked goods, including cookies, and the flour mixture ingredients and their functions. Pretty cool stuff I know. I have been really interested in the science behind baking so I thought that I would put it to use. If you are curious about the proportions to make your own from scratch, keep an eye out for a post that covers some of what I have been learning. In the mean time, grab all you favourite baking tools and mix this concoction up!

By going out on a limb with this recipe, I wasn’t sure if it was going to work out or not. That is the kind of territory that I didn’t want to get into for the first few years of my baking hobby. But I figured out that Continue reading

Snickerdoodles with a Chocolate Kick

The votes are in from the poll…so here is more chocolate! If you did not vote, keep your eye on the right side of the blog to do so in the future.

You are going to love these irresistible treats! I have added a little chocolate kick to these Snickerdoodles and it just might be the kick they needed. But since plain Snickerdoodles are classics, I have not tampered with the recipe by taking out any of the key ingredients. All I did was Continue reading

Chocolate Walnut Oatmeal Cookies

Although simple and fast, these cookies are scrumptious! Sometimes it is not all about how much time goes into a recipe, it is how creative you get with the ingredients! This time around I used semi-sweet chocolate chips and walnuts but you can use a whole variety of nuts and chocolates for this recipe. Try different dark chocolate chips, white chocolate chips, hazelnuts, dried cranberries or pecans for example. What I am saying is that some recipes have endless opportunities and that you should always be switching it up just to make life a bit more interesting!

Makes 36 cookies
