Baking Susan

Love to Bake!!

Antonio’s Birthday

on February 29, 2012

Well, I have been a busy baker these days!  Today is my son’s 4th birthday (some would say 1st birthday being leap year)!  The morning started with chocolate chip pancakes that spell out his name: Tony. 

Too bad, the novelty wore off as my son loved that it spelled his name and the chips, but could care less about the pancake.  Luckily his sister loved them!!

Then we are on to the cupcakes for preschool.  I decided to try to make chocolate chip cookie dough cupcakes.   They are yellow cupcakes with cookie dough in the center.  And don’t worry, the cookie dough is egg free, so even i not cooked all the way, they are safe to eat!!  The were a little full in the cupcake cups, the next time i make them, I will have to do so will a tad less batter.  We shall see how school likes them.  Of course it made 24, and only 12 were needed for school, so I wonder what will become of the other 12……………………..

  1. They look great Susan! Yes, I think just a tad too much cookie in the middle. But you garnished with cookie too — looks great!!! I think I am going to have to have one of them this weekend!

    when i cut into it later, i will have to see if it is too much. i used slightly less dough than the recipe called for, and still had left over dough. not sure if there will be any this weekend. i can save you one if you like.

    these turne out well in taste. i do think the cookie dough balls were too big. maybe half the size next time. there was a lot of cookie, not a lot of cupcake.
