Baking and Baseball

The pumpkin caramel poke cake turned out quite well, if I do say so myself. It was not cloying. I think the cream cheese frosting balanced the caramel. 

On to the championship series. We rode out the not quite as strong as predicted storm in the basement of a friend. Luckily it is home to his large screen tv and couch. Carl brought his usual assortment of parephanalia of the day. But the best toy was the empty box.

In the hours leading up to the Cubs game I was tasked with getting something sweet to bring. I reviewed recipes, and between the two top contenders, choose an apple bars concoction. (The other choice was pumpkin cookies.) We needed several ingredients, like apples and sugar. Out into the storm. I returned with said items and m&ms (crispy and dark chocolate). 

When it was finally time to serve dessert, Carl remarked that it was not really sweet. I thought back to a conversation noting the recipes left out the words, “sugar”, instead saying, “1 cup and 1 tsp cinnamon.” I only used 1 tsp cinnamon, but completely left out the sugar. One of the items just purchased. 

The “dessert” was not horrible, just apples with cinnamon between pie crusts. It is now breakfast. 

For today’s game I am going to try the pumpkin cookies.

Go Cubs!

    You inadvertently made a very healthy dessert! Caramel plus cream cheese frosting, it doesn’t get better than that!
