(OVERDUE) Baking Post 2017 NO.15- The Mystery Blogger Award

Hallo, meine lovelies(my sincere greetings in German,this week)! 

To begin with, I am obliged to give an explanation for my weeks absence. I've been subjected to studying and reading up new topics for this school year besides going on holiday to Lakeside(I'll leave a couple pictures at the end). I realised the difficulty of executing all of the above,moreover bakingBLOGGING at the same time. Perceiving the matter, it provides no excuse for missing weeks of posting because there are bloggers who are in their GCSE year ,sixth-form, college or university season, yet persist in administering their blog. I guess blogging,personally, fits as challenging because...I merely bake for every post!πŸ˜πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚

To be honest, Aleeha and Hale  nominated me for the tag over a month or so ago,defining why I  placed the word"OVERDUE" in block letters,within the title. I was ought to compose my award post for a considerable length of time now. Likewise, I remain super hard-pressed with tasks.
Deepest apologies for the quality.

To justify the rules of this award/tag,all bloggers put up for the Mystery Blogger Award are required to encompass the award logo within their post,listing all the rules as well as acknowledging the blogger for suggesting them as nominees. The rules apply mentioning the inventor of the award, divulging 3 facts about yourself to your readers, selecting around 10-20 bloggers for the award,furthermore notifying each and every one of your nominees,asking five questions. Lastly, share the link of your best/favourite post from your blog.


With no more instructions to give out, a TREMENDOUS THANK YOU to Aleeha for nominating BakingBoutique for such a stupendous award(a hyperlink of her blog as well as several of my favourites from her blog will be left at the end of the post). The award inventor is blogger Okoto Enigma(I'll drop an additional link for her blog + the mystery blogger award at the end)!πŸ˜†Her motive for innovating the Mystery Blogger Award was introducing contriving,unrecognizable bloggers and spotting those who perceive fun and insight from blogging. I reckon that was very innovating and incentivising for new bloggers, in particular.


Three probably uninteresting facts about tedious me!πŸ˜€


I have a phobia of two things: Spiders and vomit.

I have composed over six FINISHED books in my time and I'm currently in progress with a new online book,entitled "Stolen Heart", which I believe I've spoken briefly about on here in the past.


I begun baking independently at the age of nine,baking my well-famous sparkly star biscuits, which were popular amongst my friends. It was the first bake I made by myself and a bonus, was SUCCESSFUL. (I'll leave a link of the same recipe I had uploaded last year).


1. Why I started blogging? I have given a detailed explanation of why I blog, time and time again,therefore I shall cut the answer short. I blog because as eccentric and bizarre as I can be, blogging keeps me sane. πŸ˜πŸ˜†πŸ˜†Blogging is my oyster to the world and above all...MY LIFE,online.



2. My biggest fear is dying without a legacy. Dying without accomplishing anything or completing my mission on Earth(a.k.a  life),being proud of what I've accomplished and no regretting anything(good or bad). I grasp my fear as strange as I'm very young ,still with plenty to learn but...you asked for my biggest fear.

My favourite colour to wear...um perhaps light colours such as blues,white and light greens or bright colours such as pinks,oranges,reds,maybe yellows. To elect one light colour...I commonly wear white so...πŸ˜•. Derived from my choice of BRIGHT colours,perhaps pink or orange.

Favourite childhood memory? Being an former aspiring ballet dancer, attending a class at English National Ballet has always been a favorable reminiscence of mine for years.I believe I was between the age of 9 or 10.

My favourite song at the moment is Logic 1-800-273-8255, featuring both Alessia Cara and Khalid. The song advocates deep, heart-touching feelings and the lyrics are...awe-inspiring!

Five Questions To Put Forward To My Nominees

Earlier on, I was speaking of my fear of dying without a good legacy and regretting anything good or bad which has led me to my proud outcome. SO what are your regrets?

What was the last thing you did today before writing this post?

If you woke up one day,gaining an ability or quality, what would it be and why?

Favourite time of the day?

Who do you look up to,as a role model?

Ok and additional question...would you prefer to dance all day,everywhere,constantly🌞🌞 or sing all throughout the night?

Recipe Post 2017 N0.14- The Cookie Club

Hello world!

Transiently, I have taken a fancy in improving and adapting my expected baking posts. Don't take this the wrong way,I take very much delight in composing posts where I write up recipes of my pick, bake them and display them for all of you to view. For example, my last post was very enjoyable and I derive great pleasure from arranging big bake-offs,exhibiting the finale in a  different manner to what I'm accustomed to. However, I less occupied with schoolwork as I'm on vacation,giving me more excuse to bake.  With that,I have created Cookie Club!!The cookie club is devised of  my favored cookie recipes, at the moment being three. To clarify the constituents of the club, each member (cookie) shall hold its own nickname and individual photo shoot,suitable to all occasions.  Without any further ado, let's dive straight into the recipes!

My first and foremost cookie recipe is Chocolate Dipped Strawberry cookies. You'll need:

210g of unsalted butter

330g of light brown sugar

1 large eggs

1 teaspoon of vanilla essence

390g of plain flour

2tsps bicarbonate soda

100g of strawberries,hulled and roughly chopped


Baking in the making:

Preheat oven to 170 C/150 C/ Gas Mark 4.

Cream together the butter and sugar until light and fluffy.Incorporate the egg and the vanilla essence,mixing well. Fold in the chocolate chips and strawberries (leave a few aside to press into the top of the cookies).

Roll the dough into balls(approx 2 tables per cookie). Press gently with your palms so they are slightly flattened, and press some extra chocolate chips and/or strawberries on top.Place on lined baking tray-be sure to space them out as they enlarge in size when being baked. Bake in the oven for 17 minutes.

Allow to cool for a few minutes on the tray before transferring to a cooling rack,allowing them to cool completely.

Melt the chocolate,dipping half the cookie into the chocolate. Rest the cookies on non-stick paper, garnishing cookies with sprinkles, if desired.  Here, I bring to you Strawberry Sprinkle!

To accompany Strawberry Sprinkle in the Cookie Club is Wild Blueberry Oatmeal Cookies, a MORNING delight:

2 medium bananas,mashed

162 grams of rolled oats

24 grams of plain flour

10g of dried blueberries

54 grams of coconut oil,melted

1/8 of teaspoon of salt

2 tablespoons of honey

2 tablespoons of chia/hemp seeds

Method:

Preheat the oven to 180 C/ 160 C fan/ Gas Mark.

As before, line a baking tray with baking paper,setting aside.

Within his medium bowl, combine everything,mixing well. Put in a tablespoon or two of plain flour if you feel the mixture is too shaggy and difficult to mould.

Using your hands, shape the dough into cookies,baking for 23-25 minutes, till the cookies are a shade of golden,to some degree and cooked through. 

I name this cute cookie Wiold(Wild and oat combined). If you can brainstorm a better name, express your ideas in the comments below.

I've made Strawberry Sprinkle...I've baked Wiold but we need one more to at least create a trio for the Cookie Club. Who else shall conjoin with the two other cookies?

100g of flour(unless you know the alternative of white flour in the UK...)

50g of plain flour

a pinch of baking soda

2 lemons

50g of brown sugar

50g butter 

1tsp of vanilla extract

Method:

Blend all dry ingredients in one bowl. Zest one lemon, gradually add the butter. Carry on adding enough lemon juice to form a dough.

Allow the dough 30 minute resting time.

Briefly flour the working surface,roll out the dough. Use your cookie cutter to staple out the cookies.

Align them onto the baking tray with baking paper. Bake for 10 minutes.


As the cookie require "beauty sleep" before being baked, I name this cool...Sweet Dreams which I find amusing as lemon is the most sour fruit you can consume on its own.
