These poffins are tricky to get right… but they’re absolutely delicious when they come out perfect! 

PINAP POFFINS 

  • 2 cups bread flour
  • 1 tablespoon baking powder
  • ¼ teaspoon salt
  • ¼ cup butter, chilled
  • ¾ cup Exeggutor milk*
  • ¼ cup Beedrill honey
  • 1 egg, beaten
  • 1 (8 ounce) can crushed and drained Pinap berries**
  • 1 Oran berry, zested***

INSTRUCTIONS

Preheat oven to 375 degrees F (190 degrees C).

In a medium bowl, mix flour, baking powder, and salt. Cut in chilled butter until the mixture resembles meal.

In a small bowl, mix Exeggutor milk, Beedrill honey, and egg. Stir into the flour mixture. Fold in the Pinap berries and Oran zest. Divide the mixture into 12 rounded poffins, and arrange in a single layer on a medium ungreased baking sheet.

Bake 15 to 20 minutes in the preheated oven, until golden brown.

You can top these with a delicious Oran glaze or some honey with butter!
For a more tart treat, mix powdered sugar with lemon juice and drizzle over the poffin as a glaze.

**pineapple
***orange zest 

FOR THOSE ALLERGIC TO PINEAPPLE: 

Lots of people have pineapple allergies. You can substitute the pineapple for canned peaches. Run the peaches through a food processor. If you don’t like peaches, oranges work too and they go perfectly with the orange zest. Of course, then you have orange poffins, not pineapple poffins!

Strongest and Weakest - I’m being a little loose with the interpretation here, but!

GOAT GOD is clearly the supreme ruler of the universe (even if he’s still just chilling in AS at the moment), and the small Nebby Jr (whose name is Pew) here kind of… only knows Splash.

I mean, almost all other Pokemon can learn attack moves at least. What are you doing, Pew? Just being adorable, I suppose.

The greatest idea, what if they had a Aloan Arceus?!

arceus takes a break from being the All-Powerful Creator of the pokémon world to pursue their life-long dream of being a surfer

Lu, who had been curled up on her Arcanines back, looked up from the game she was playing on her phone.

“…Qu'est-ce que c'est, patron?”

He stared at her for a few long moments, asking Arceus or whatever god would listen why this had happened, before he spoke, “What happened?” Lysandre asked, his tone neutral as he regained a hold on himself.

I love poffins, especially sweet poffins! My favorite are Pecha poffins with some light frosting. 

Here’s the recipe if anyone is interested in trying them out for yourself! This is a very sweet and soft poffin, just like Pechas.

  • For the poffins:
    1 cup white sugar
  • ½ cup butter
  • 2 eggs
  • 2 teaspoons vanilla extract
  • 1 ½ cups all-purpose flour
  • 1 ¾ teaspoons baking powder
  • ½ cup milk
  • Pecha berries*

    For the icing:
    • ½ cup powdered sugar
      1 tablespoon cream
      1 teaspoon vanilla extract
       
  • Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). Grease and flour a 9x9 inch pan or line a muffin pan with paper liners.
  • In a medium bowl, cream together the sugar and butter. 
  • Beat in the eggs, one at a time.
  • stir in the vanilla. 
  • Combine flour and baking powder, add to the creamed mixture and mix well.
  •  Finally stir in the milk until batter is smooth. 
  • Pour or spoon batter into the prepared pan. I’m guessing most people at home don’t have poffin tins… but you can use a muffin pan! They’ll likely have a crown like regular muffins do.
  • Bake 20 to 25 minutes. Poffins are done when it springs back to the touch.
  • While the poffins are cooling, prepare the icing:
  • Combine the powdered sugar and half and half or cream and stir until the sugar is completely absorbed by the cream.
  • Add the teaspoon of vanilla extract. You can also add a few drops of almond extract, but be careful–this extract is very strong! Only use a few drops.
  • The icing is ready to drizzle over scones, sweet biscuits, etc. I drizzle on the icing with a small spoon in a zig-zag pattern. It looks very pretty.
  • Enjoy! 

*short on Pecha berries? Substitute for peach slices or strawberries. Strawberries are recommended!

Arceus: I fear that I have not told the full truth behind my corruption.  Do you whole heartedly believe mere humans would be capable of my capture? No…Allow me to clarify…

But I fear that I must start from the very beginning.

By no doubt, you have heard of my children. They are, what you mortals call, the ‘Creation Trio’

LAVA COOKIES
(Note: lava cookies, by definition, are not cookies at all. They are much more like crackers than cookies, though they have a nice sweet hint!)

INGREDIENTS
- 1 ¼ cup all-purpose flour
-1 ¼ cup mochiko (sweet rice flour)*
- 2 tbs sugar
- 2 tbs toasted sesame seeds
- 1 ½ tsp baking powder
- ½ tsp baking soda
- 1 tsp salt
- 1 cup of water
- additional flour for dusting surfaces
- oil for deep frying or lightly greased cookie sheets
- sheet of nori*

INSTRUCTIONS 

In a food processor, combine the dry ingedients (the first 7 above). Add the water slowly until the dough becomes a firm ball. You might not need to use the whole cup. Wrap the dough in plastic wrap and refrigerate for about 3 hours, until the dough has firmed slightly for rolling. This also cuts back on stickiness.

Roll out the dough to about ½ inch thickness on a lightly floured surface. Also dust your dough cutter with flour to prevent the dough from sticking. Cut circles of dough and reroll as necessary until all dough is cut. Waste not, want not! Cut small, 3x1 inches of nori carefully and lay them over the dough however you want. In Lavaridge town, they fold the nori over the edge of the cookies like rice balls.

To deep fry the dough: heat oil to 375°F and deep-fry a few circles at a time, removing when golden. Drain. The dough will puff up beautifully as it fries. Or: bake the dough on lightly greased cookie sheets. Bake in a preheated 350°F oven for 10 to 15 minutes, until they turn light brown. Remove and cool. The baked dough circles will not puff up as much as the deep fried ones, and they will be much crunchier. 
Serve immediately, and enjoy. I recommend a piping hot cup of green tea!

*not surprisingly, most people can’t just pick up these ingredients at any old grocery store. Check your local listings for a world market or Asian market, they’ll likely carry these ingredients.
