electric milk

hi I’m kelsey.

I’m in a really bad situation at the moment and it’s really hard for me to even write this, I’m not one to usually ask or even open up when help is needed but this is really urgent and apparently this is all I have left. 

So my mum was recently diagnosed with a disability called MS which is basically like brain damage and it affects the whole body, she had to leave her job because she’s in so much pain and she was on sick pay for a while which did help but now she’s not getting any money and even the government won’t give her money.

Senior year (2012) many students were exempt from finals because of good grades. I was one of those exempt, but needed to attend school to stay qualified for swimming. So I brought an electric skillet, bacon, eggs, milk, and pancake mix. My anatomy teacher was always late because she would be chatting with other teachers in the hall. She was lured into her room by the smell of bacon.

She asked me to crack open the window so the other classes wouldn’t smell it and come in asking for food. I ended up serving almost 30 students and teachers breakfast that day.

Look, I made a mix yesterday. in love with love & lousy poetry.

A 00Q Chocolate Cake worth coming home to.

A good chocolate cake is worth its weight in gold, and its true value is in its dual ability to taste as decadent and sinful as James looks in a Tom Ford while touching that spot in you that longs for something soft and domestic. The one you feel when you and your quartermaster lean together, mentally, physically, emotionally exhausted, against the kitchen counter post-mission, hours before dawn. Wearing only pajamas, in silence you eat mouthfuls of cake straight from the platter, sharing the only clean fork in the flat. Every heavy bite pulls you closer to much-needed sleep, and you soften a little, knowing you won’t have to sleep alone. It tugs at that spot in your chest that reminds you you’re safe – someone’s looking after you. It’s not glamorous, not one bit. But it all tastes like home. Novel, that.

Chocolate Cake

For the cake you’ll need:

  • 2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 2 cups granulated white sugar
  • ¾ cup Dutch-process cocoa powder
  • 2 tsp baking powder
  • 1 ½ tsp baking soda
  • 1 tsp salt
  • 1 cup whole milk, or whatever milk you have on hand
  • ½ cup vegetable oil or coconut oil
  • 2 eggs
  • 2 tsp vanilla extract
  • A ~*splash*~  (roughly 1 ½ tbsp if the vagueness of that gives you hives) of hot, freshly-brewed coffee OR 1 tsp espresso powder
  • 1 cup boiling water
  1. Preheat your oven to 350F degrees, or 325F if you’re using a convection oven. Butter and lightly flour two 9” cake pans and set aside.
  2. Combine all dry ingredients (flour, sugar, cocoa powder, baking powder, baking soda, salt and espresso powder if using instead of coffee) in the bowl of a stand mixer or a large bowl if using an electric mixer. Use the stand mixer’s paddle attachment to combine, or a whisk if using an electric mixer.
  3. Add the milk, oil, eggs and vanilla. Mix at a medium speed until combined.
  4. Lower the speed and add the hot coffee and boiling water so you don’t burn ya self.
  5. Distribute the batter between the two pans and tap on the counter to remove air bubbles. Bake for 30-35 minutes or until a toothpick comes out clean.
  6. Let them cool in the pans on a cooking rack for about 15 minutes before turning out to cool completely.

Follow with chocolate buttercream frosting (recipe below).

Note: This is a REALLY thin batter, so don’t panic if you feel like you just made chocolate soup. It sets up just fine. Also, I hate to go all Ina Garten, but the quality of the cocoa powder in the cake AND frosting really makes all the difference. It needs to be Dutch-process to reach its dark, deadly potential.

Chocolate Buttercream Frosting

For the frosting you’ll need:

  • 1 cup unsalted butter, softened
  • ¼ tsp salt
  • 2 tsp vanilla extract
  • 3 ½-ish cups confectioner sugar
  • ½ cup Dutch-process cocoa powder
  • 4 tbsp heavy whipping cream
  1. In the bowl of a stand mixer (you can use either the paddle or the whisk, but I like fluffy frosting so I always use the whisk) beat the butter for a minute or two until it’s fluffy.
  2. Add the salt and vanilla and beat to combine.
  3. Add the confectioner’s sugar until combined, and then the cocoa powder.
  4. Add your heavy whipping cream one tbsp at a time until it’s the consistency you like! Beat it in on medium for a minute.

Note: If you like enough frosting to bathe in, be sure to double this recipe. It’s plenty to cover the cake (and very rich), but if you’re looking for a solid inch of coverage on each side… yeah. Double it. 

I spent a lot of time imagining what sorts of bizarre upgrades Q would give a KitchenAid stand mixer while making this.

Apple Pie Cinnamon Rolls

Yield: Makes 12 cinnamon rolls


For the dough: 1 package yeast (2 ¼ teaspoons) ½ cup lukewarm water ½ cup sugar ½ cup scalded milk, cooled to warm 1/3 cup melted butter 1 egg, room temperature 2 teaspoons salt 4 cups bread flour (or all-purpose flour) Filling: 6 tablespoons melted butter, divided 5 granny smith apples, peeled, cored, and diced ½ cup sugar 1 cup brown sugar 2 tablespoons ground cinnamon Glaze: ¼ cup cream cheese, softened 4 tablespoons butter 1 ½ cups powdered sugar ½ teaspoon vanilla extract ¼ teaspoon salt


In a small bowl, add yeast and 2 teaspoons of the sugar to the lukewarm water and let it sit until it dissolves, about 10 minutes. In the mixing bowl of a stand mixer using the dough hook attachment, (or a large mixing bowl with an electric mixer) add scalded milk, melted butter, egg, remaining sugar, and salt and mix on low speed until combined. Add half of the flour and mix until smooth. Add yeast mixture and continue to mix on low. Slowly add the remaining flour (if using an electric mixer you will have to stop when it’s getting hard to mix and use a wooden spoon to incorporate the rest of the four as best you can- the motor of the electric mixer will burn out- then turn dough to a floured surface and knead for 5 minutes, folding the dough over onto itself and pushing down repeatedly). For a stand mixer, increase the speed to medium and knead for 5 minutes. Remove dough, place in a greased bowl, cover, and set aside on countertop or warm place. Let it rise until it is double in size, about 2 hours. While dough is rising, make the filling. Heat 4 tablespoons of the butter and sugar in a large skillet, then add the apples. Sauté until apples are slightly caramelized. Remove from heat and set aside. When dough has risen, remove cover and, using your fist, punch the dough down and remove from the bowl. Roll out on a well-floured surface into a 16x24 inch rectangle and spread the remaining 2 tablespoons butter almost out to the edges, but not quite. Mix the brown sugar with the cinnamon and sprinkle evenly across the butter. Spread the apple mixture over the brown sugar as evenly as you can. Roll into a log, starting from one end to the other, lengthwise, so the log is 24 inches. Cut 2 inch slices, this will give you 12 cinnamon rolls. Line a 9x13 baking pan with parchment paper and butter the parchment. The cinnamon roll slices close together, but not touching, in the pan. Cover with plastic wrap and let rise until the dough is doubled, 1 ½-2 hours. While the rolls are rising, preheat the oven to 375°F. Bake for about 20-22 minutes, being careful not to over-bake them. While the cinnamon rolls are baking, mix cream cheese, butter, powdered sugar, vanilla, and salt together with an electric or stand mixer on medium speed and set aside. When cinnamon rolls come out of the oven, spread the glaze over the top and serve.
