Donut Muffins & Happy Veteran's Day

The other day my mom was looking at the title of the blog, and she asked, "The Baking Apprentice? How long will your apprenticeship last before you graduate to the next level?" And I thought to myself, "Hmmm, that's a very good question." Apparently most apprenticeships last for 3, 4, or possibly even more years...yikes! But, thankfully I'm not really under an apprenticeship, otherwise I'd be baking forever  for 36 months. Speaking of learning new things, I signed up for a 4-session cake decorating class to hopefully learn some new cake skills and share it with you guys!  But for now I leave you with donuts...

The Ingredients
A donut batter with no yeast!

Instead of frying the donuts, these are baked and smothered with butter and sugar. I'm not sure if that makes them healthier or not, but it does save time and should cut down on the ill effects of frying them.
You can find the recipe to these donuts right here!


Happy Veteran's Day!
 A very big THANK YOU to all those who faithfully serve our country. Your dedication and perseverance is greatly appreciated.

Scream Cheese Brownies

So, the Giants won The World Series and if you lived around here that's a really big deal!!! This brownie was partially in honor of the big win and partially in honor of the fall season and mostly because it was my turn to bring snacks to an event.  This recipe was perfect because it calls for orange food coloring which is very fall-like AND one of the Giants' colors.  (For those of you who don't really follow baseball, like me, the San Francisco Giants wear orange and black, and sometimes the catcher wears orange-looking nail polish!)  SO this brownie is a delicious, multi-purpose dessert which could be made for whatever reason you can come up with or just because you're hungry!

The Ingredients

And, here comes the orange food coloring.

The batter layered in the pan. It's all Battered up
Sorry, I couldn't resist especially with this baseball theme going on here..=p

It's a swirling sensation!

I found this recipe on the blog The Girl Who Ate Everything.  Catchy title, huh?!?  You can find the recipe here.  I don't know much about The World Series or baseball in general, but I do know how to make the brownies to celebrate!  PS - Did you know that there's a reason why the catchers sometimes wear bright nail polish???  It's so the pitcher can see his signals in the San Francisco fog.  There's some useless information that might just help you on a game show one day!
