Flourless Peanut Butter & Chocolate Chip Cookies

5 Jul

I was feeling edgy and stressed a couple of days back, and I just needed to expel some pent up negativity. Since I had the whole night to myself, I thought, why not bake some delish sinful food. I must admit I’m not the best baker around. I usually have hits and misses (more of the latter unfortunately), BUT Rome was not built in a day, isn’t it? I usually console myself with that.

Decided to dig up this fuss-free recipe that I have been eyeing for quite some time at Buns in My Oven. Only 5 ingredients, beat that! Glad to say the cookies turned out fabulousssssss. If not I would have been one pissed off bitch. Anyway, peanut butter and chocolate can never go wrong. I don’t really fancy peanut butter alone but pairing it with chocolate is almost close to heaven.

Flourless Peanut Butter & Chocolate Chip Cookies

Ingredients

  • 2 cups peanut butter
  • 2 cups brown sugar
  • 2 eggs
  • 2 teaspoons baking soda
  • 1 cup chocolate chunks

Instructions

  1. Preheat oven to 180 degrees celcius and line baking tray with cookie sheet.
  2. In the bowl of a stand mixer, beat together peanut butter, brown sugar, eggs and baking soda until light and creamy. Stir in the chocolate chunks.
  3. Drop tablespoonfuls of dough onto the cookie sheet.
  4. Bake for 10 minutes for soft and chewy cookies or 12 minutes for crunchy cookies. (Do not panic if they are soft when removed from the oven, let them sit for a couple of minutes to form)
  5. Cool on wire rack and gobble them down.

This recipe yields quite a huge amount of cookies, and so I didn’t finish the batter. I would definitely half them the next time I make it. This recipe is so easy that everyone should try it!

Food for Thought @ 8Q

Our last minute impromptu late lunch date with Shuyi cos someone was craving for pancakes. And where else better than to head to but Food for Thought!

Its been almost 6 months since we last visited the place. Was definitely craving for ALL their food…

Full Works (S$18). Makes you more than full.

PhotobucketOur Mixed Berries Pancakes (S$10). Sooo good and drool worthy.

Till I find another pancake as good as this, I think Food for Thought wins it hands down. Plus, its so affordable!

Pepper Thyme Fries (S$5)

or choose from Rosemary Garlic or Spicy Chilli.

Old Southern Red Velvet Cake ($6)

The red velvet was really dense, and we couldn’t decide if we loved it or not ): Probably give it a miss the next time we come again.

The 3 of us were just stuffing our face silly and could barely finish everything. Oh, can’t wait to visit the new outlet at Botanic Gardens as well!

Group Therapy Cafe

1 May

Labour Day Brunch was spent at Group Therapy Cafe – a hidden gem at Duxton Road. We settled on this place which none of us tried before, based on good reviews we heard. Definitely didn’t disappoint!

Group Therapy Cafe is on the second floor of a shophouse which might make it slightly less prominent, but a slow walk down Duxton Road will have you there in no time. The place is cosy, and not too large, so the place doesn’t get extremely crowded unlike some other brunch places. They don’t take reservations, but feel free to give them a call to check on the availability half an hour before heading down. We got a place pretty quick!

Poached Eggs (S$15)
This Eggs Benedict, unlike others, were on top of a thick toast. Topped with Smoked Salmon, Gruyere and Hollandaise sauce, my brunch was perfect! The portion was surprisingly filling, but I finished up every bit of it, including the delish Hollandaise sauce.

I will go back anytime just for this (:

Double-stacked Buckwheat Pancakes (S$15)

I didn’t get to try this, but the banana walnut pancakes with strawberries and maple syrup looked amazing and Donna said it was yummy. Next trip here, and I will try it!

Omelette with Swiss mushrooms & Parmesan Cheese (S$18)

Served with bratwurst sausage, salad and 2 wholemeal buns, this meal is definitely a huge portion to try. For a variety of food, I think this makes a good choice.

This cafe had a great ambience, and with the great food, we didn’t regret choosing this place! Prices are so affordable as well, and I definitely wanna come back here to try their sandwiches and desserts. Before that, I wanna check out all the other cafes in the Duxton area! (:


Food glorious food!!

Hellos! We have been cooking recently and exploring some dishes!

We have been wanting to make broccoli soup for the longest time but never got down to it, so when M found an easy peasy recipe for a Broccoli Pie, we jumped straight into it. It was more like a quiche than a pie because there was no need to make any crust. Tasted great except that it was not salty enough!

We got the recipe from here!

Broccoli Pie

Ingredients

  • 3/4 cup baking mix (recipe from here)
  • 3 eggs
  • 1 1/3 cups milk
  • 2 (10 ounce) packages chopped frozen broccoli, thawed
  • 2/3 cup chopped onion
  • 12 ounces shredded Cheddar cheese

Directions

  1. Preheat oven to 400 degrees F (200 degrees C). Grease a 10 inch pie plate.
  2. In a large bowl, combine baking mix, eggs, and milk. Mix until smooth. Stir in broccoli, onion, and 2 cups of the shredded cheese. Pour mixture into pie plate.
  3. Bake in preheated oven for 25 to 30 minutes, until golden brown. Top with remaining cheese and return to oven just until cheese is melted. Serve hot.

Our end product! Golden brown cheesy goodness..
