This cookbook will be the death of me....

Baked again! What can I say...the recipes, the photographs....they grab me and suck me in...and then I just want to stay in...never leave...maybe eat my way out!

I needed to make a birthday cake and had my heart set on the Milk Chocolate Malt Ball Cake. Then I stupidly (or not) took to the internet to see if anyone else had made it. And yes, of course they had...and most (not all) had a little bad luck with the cake itself. Well, being as this was going to be given to someone else, I decided not to chance it. I will try it when it is being consumed solely by family.

Soooo, I ended up making a recipe from Dorie's book for the birthday cake and made the Brewer's Blondies instead. But I had good reason, my oldest son doesn't like brownies and was begging me to make blondies...there you go. For him...not for me!

Some changes I made:

Chocolate Ovaltine in place of the malted milk powder.
Butterscotch chips in place of the chocolate chips.
Plain M&Ms in place of the whoppers.

I don't think I baked them long enough either, but dang are they good!

Let's see how long they hang around....

Look here what I found....Nichi over at Bakeologie wants people to bake with her...using Baked! This is just calling my name...
