snack bakeing

3

Blueberry Banana Bread 

Ingredients

2 cups all-purpose flour

5 tbsp melted butter

2 eggs, room temperature

¾ cup sugar

4 ripe bananas, mashed (or blended in a food processor)

1 pint blueberries, separated into halves 

1 tsp baking powder

1 tsp cinnamon

Dash vanila extract

Pinch of salt

Directions

Preheat your oven to 350 degrees Fahrenheit and spray a loaf pan with non-stick spray.

In a small bowl, take one half of the blueberries and toss them with a few tsp of flour and set aside.

Using a blender or food processor, use the remaining half of blueberries to make a puree. I usually combine this step with mashing the bananas. I process them both together in the processor until they are nice and smooth.

In a large bowl, combine the sugar, butter, and eggs and mix until fully incorporated.

Add in the vanilla and ½ of the mashed bananas and the vanilla.

Blend in half of the dry ingredients. Add in the remaining half of the mashed bananas, followed by the remaining half of the dry ingredients, including the blueberries that were previously tossed in flour.

Pour the batter into the loaf pan and tap on the counter to get rid of any air bubbles.

Bake for approximately 55 minutes or until the bread is moist with few crumbs when stuck with a toothpick.

Let cool before cutting.

Serve with your favorite spread.

Enjoy!

Paarthurnax snacks

 Note: this recipe is inspired by but does not appear in the Elder Scrolls

Drem yol lok, fahdon! Greetings, friends! At one of my cooking classes recently, a young mother asked me if I had any suggestions for a simple, healthy snack for young children. As I know nothing about children, I had to think long and hard about this. What do they even like to eat in the first place? Thinking far back to my childhood, where snacks were a rarity as we were poor, I recalled the cheese biscuits my mother and I used to occasionally make together when I was a toddler (which is probably what led to my lifelong love of cooking). These savoury biscuits are delicious and crunchy, and incredibly easy to make for or with your kids! I decided to go with the name ‘Paarthurnax snacks’ after my dragon friend at the Throat of the World, as it seems every child these days wants to be the Dragonborn, and the shape will definitely keep them entertained!

But grownups, never fear! Make some for yourself by adding some herbs, sea salt and cracked black pepper, or even a pinch of chili powder to them for a bit of a kick. They also make a great homemade gift when placed in a nice tin that will make your friends and family say “For me? Thanks!“ (Or as we say in Dovahzul, Fah zu'u? Kogaan!)

You will need:
100g whole wheat flour (or plain flour if you prefer), plus extra for dusting
180g cheddar cheese or other hard cheese (mild or strong depending on preference), grated
100g butter, cold and cubed, plus extra for greasing
1 egg yolk
Rolling pin
Dragon-shaped cookie cutters

Method:
In a mixing bowl, combine the flour, cheese, egg yolk, and butter. Add your extra condiments if desired. Knead until smooth, cover in cling wrap, and refrigerate for 30 minutes.

Preheat your oven to 180C/355F. Grease a baking tray well with butter, and dust a clean surface well with flour.

When the dough has solidified, roll it out flat until it is about an inch thick and use the cookie cutters to shape your biscuits. Space them finger-width apart on the baking tray and bake for 15-20 minutes, or until golden brown. Remove from the oven and cool on a rack for 30 minutes before eating. Biscuits can be kept for 1 week in a sealed airtight container.
