Chocolate Chip Snack Cake

I got off early from work today so I decided to surprise the kids with an after school snack!! I am trying to get them to eat a bit healthier so I chose this recipe. I like the use of the applesauce and sour cream. It has a bit of a chewy texture. It is not as sweet as a normal cake.  The kids loved it and didn't even notice the wheat flour. YAY!!!
Chocolate Chip Snack Cake
adapted from Taste of Home
1/4 cup butter, melted
1/2 cup white sugar
1/2 cup brown sugar
1 egg
2 egg whites
1 cup sour cream (I used light)
2/3 cup applesauce
1 teaspoon vanilla
1 cup white flour
1 cup wheat flour
1 1/2 teaspoons baking powder
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/4 teaspoon baking soda
1/3 cup white sugar
1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
1/2 cup chocolate chips (I used just a few more.)
Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Grease a 9x13 pan.
Cream butter and sugars together. Add egg then egg whites and beat for about 3 minutes. Beat in sour cream, applesauce and vanilla. Slowly add the flours, baking powder, salt and baking soda until it is all blended well. Pour half the batter into the pan.
In a small bowl mix the sugar and cinnamon together.
Sprinkle half of the cinnamon mixture and chocolate chips on top.
Then carefully pour the rest of the batter over top. Spread evenly.
Sprinkle with the remaining sugar and chocolate chips.
Bake at 350 degrees for 20-25 minutes or until a toothpick comes clean.
I had to use the toothpick because it did not look done, but was.
It was a nice change!

Crusty Italian Bread

Do you ever picture yourself eating a slice of Italian bread you know the type with the crunchy outside and soft and delicate inside. Well this is the recipe for you and I have found the secret to getting the perfect crust!! Crusty Italian Bread makes 2 loaves 1 1/3 cups warm water 2 1/4 teaspoons yeast 1 Tablespoon brown sugar 1 1/2 teaspoons salt 1 1/2 teaspoons olive oil 4 cups flour Place warm water, yeast and brown sugar in mixing bowl. Stir and let stand for a few minutes until it start to bubble and foam a bit.  Add olive oil and salt.  Mix and add the flour gradually.  You want to add enough that the dough comes away from the sides of the bowl.  You want to mix it with the dough hook for a few minutes.  Cover and let the dough rise until doubled about 30 minutes. Punch down dough and divide in two and form into two loaves (I doubled the recipe this time.) Cover with a damp cloth and let rise until doubled. Preheat oven to 375 degrees. Beat

Blueberry Cream Cheese Bundt Cake

One word for this one: DELICIOUS!!  It is so moist and easy to make.  It did not last long around our house.  My daughter finished the last little bit for breakfast  (she was afraid it would not still be there when she got home). Blueberry Cream Cheese Bundt Cake 1-8 oz. package cream cheese, softened 1/2 cup vegetable oil 1 package white cake mix (mine was vanilla) 1- 3 oz. package instant vanilla pudding mix 4 eggs 2 teaspoons vanilla 2 1/4 cups fresh or frozen, thawed blueberries powdered sugar Preheat oven to 325 degrees. Lightly spray a 9 inch bundt pan with cooking spray. Combine the cream cheese and oil in a medium bowl and beat with a mixer until smooth and creamy. Add the cake mix, pudding mix, eggs and vanilla. Beat at medium speed until blended. Fold in the berries. (Dough will be thick and sticky).  Pour into the prepared pan. Bake for 60 -65 minutes until a wooden pick inserted in the center comes out clean.  Cool the cake on a wire rack for 20 minutes.   Remov

Chicken Cordon Bleu Bundles

Everytime I go to Costco I have been picking up a rotisserie chicken.  I shred all the chicken off the bones and it makes for great easy quick meals. This were the perfect use of it.  They were quick, easy and very delicious!! Chicken Cordon Bleu Bundles Inspired by Dessert Now Dinner Later 2 cans of  crescent rolls 1 package of thin sliced ham (lunch meat)  slices of swiss cheese  2- 2 1/2 cups shredded cooked chicken Preheat oven to 375 degrees. Open the cans of crescent rolls. Separate and unroll the triangles.  You can either work on them all at once or in groups.  I made them in groups of 4. Lightly grease your cookie sheet. . Layer one or two slices of ham, 1 slice of cheese.  Then add a small amount of shredded chicken on top.  Fold the edges of the ham around the cheese and chicken. Starting at the fat end of the triangle, roll the crescent dough around all the fillings as tight as you can and continue rolling to the point of the triangle.
