Deconstructed Peanut Butter & Jelly Doughnuts

25 Dec

You would think I’d be all fried out by now, considering all of the latkes and sufganiyot I’ve been surrounded with (and eating) this holiday season. Yeah, I baked my own doughnuts but that doesn’t mean everyone else didn’t choose to fry up their own. So when I made another batch of baked doughnuts for the weekend, I decided it was time to heat up a pot of oil and get frying with the leftover scraps of dough! And this couldn’t have been a better time to test out my new pipette’s from my favorite housewares and baking accessory shop, Breezy’s. I’ve only ever seen pipette’s used on television and when I had the chance to use them in my own kitchen, I jumped at the chance. So there I stood in my kitchen with extra scraps of doughnut dough to fry and pipette’s to fill and it just all made sense…peanut butter caramel doughnut holes with tart jelly! I already had the luscious salted peanut butter caramel in my fridge from the Pecan Apple Galette I made last week and I always have some kind of jelly or preserve in my pantry. So I went for it and it was worth every little calorie!  Continue reading

Chocolate Galore!

23 Nov

I’m your basic chocolate lover! I love to eat and bake sweet chocolate desserts like chocolate chip cookies, brownies and ganache and sometimes, I even experiment with savory chocolate dishes like chili and pasta. So when I saw that Breezy’s, my favorite baking supply store, offered a class where I could learn how to take my chocolate obsession to the next level, I was in! After a long day with my son home sick from school, it was such a pleasure to go to Breezy’s for the Chocolate Galore class with instructor Robin Muchnick. When I got there, I was pleasantly surprised to find an organized set up of silicone molds, transfer sheets, bowls of colored sugar and sparkle, and other exciting treats that I would soon be filling and covering with chocolate. Just remember that the chocolate tips I’m going to share with you don’t even cover half of what you can learn when you actually take the class, but they will give you a taste (no pun intended).  Continue reading

A Taste of Breezy’s

17 Nov

Whenever I need cookie cutters, silicon molds, colored sugar or any other baking accessories, my first and only stop is Breezy’s in Long Island. Founded by Brielle ‘Breezy’ Schwartz and Heidi Schwartz, Breezy’s is a high-end housewares and giftware store that also offers a full line of bakeware, decorating accessories and educational material. Recently, Breezy posted a poll on Facebook asking fans to choose which flavored pastry fillings they would like in the store. The choices included Bavarian Cream, Banana Cream, Apple, Peach, and Apricot. Yum! I wish I could choose them all! Well, Breezy’s asked me if I would try out a few of the new flavors in my own test kitchen and I was more than happy to oblige! I baked with the Bavarian Cream, Apricot, and Chocolate Bavarian Cream fillings, and Breezy’s offered them as a tasting for their customers and fans in the store. I hope everyone enjoyed my desserts and shopped around in Breezy’s!

I’ve provided the recipes below so you can recreate them in your own kitchen using Breezy’s new pastry fillings! So if you’re ever walking on Central Avenue in Cedarhurst, don’t forget to stop by Breezy’s to say hi and pick up something special for yourself!

Baked Mini Cake Doughnuts

3 Oct

Raise your hand if you ever really stick to your shopping list! Yeah, I didn’t think so. Neither do I. So while on a shopping trip at Bed Bath & Beyond, I happened upon a mini doughnut pan by Wilton and bought two! I mean, each pan only makes twelve mini doughnuts and I knew I would want more that. Are you laughing now? I put the pans aside for the right moment and it came when my three-year-old randomly asked for chocolate doughnuts.
