TWD February Preview

Yeah, the February picks are published! And, tamtamtamtam: here they are:

Milk Chocolate Mini Bundt Cakes, Rick Katz’s Brownies for Julia, My Best Chocolate Chip Cookies and Honey-Wheat Cookies.

I will have to do the mini bundts already tomorrow, as I have some buttermilk left from the Cocoa-nana Bread, which won't be useabel forever. They look like an Austrian dessert, the "Mohr im Hemd" (see picture right). It has no swirl but also nuts in the dough, and is served warm. From time to time there is a debate about the political correctness of the name, which I can support, as it would be very very easy to name it differently. (like, "Chocolate Bundt cake"...)

Brownies are adorable. They are relatively new to me, as I cannot remember having seen them before Starbucks invaded (german-speaking) Europe. Which must have been in about 2003 or so. Boy, I really hated Starbucks back in those days... (like, I guess 95% of Austrian, as it is completely against our loooong coffee-house tradition).  Some things never change. And some change by 180°... But Brownies found their way into my heart immediately. I never made any, so I am really looking forward to it!

And we have two kind of Cookies on the list. Cookies are cookies, who could say anything against them? Honey-Wheat sounds very delicious. And I haven't made cookies for a while. And they are mostly easy to make, easy to store, and easy to transport to the office. So - cookies, yay!

Up to now I have been a very regular TWD baker, baking all picks in every week. The upcoming weeks will be different...
I will leave at February 11 and be back on 24th. And when I am back, there will be Lenten season, which is nothing religious or spiritual for me, as I am neither - but still I like to restrain from some things that became kind of "everyday-luxuries" and are not really essential or necessary for life.
I will find a way to deal with these two problems later...
