I love Starbucks's mini vanilla scones, so much so that I set out to create my own copycat version. After many trials, I think I got it! Like the Starbucks version, these scones are sweet, buttery and vanilla-y, and have a light and tender texture. Full-fat sour cream is the key ingredient, so please do not substitute. To duplicate the Starbucks's version, I topped it with a simple powdered sugar glaze.
This is my go-to recipe for blueberry or chocolate chip muffins. These are soft and moist and stay that way even when cooled. I think they are the perfect sweetness, too. An endless variety of mix-ins can be used. (Recipe is scaled down for 16-18 mini or 5-6 standard muffins.)
A sandwich is all about the bread! One of my favorites is pastrami with brown mustard and sprouts on this pumpernickel. Please note: While not traditional, I find that potato flakes make most breads softer, chewier and less crumbly. Also, rye flour makes dough sticky, so be careful not to add more flour than the recipe states.
Adapted from Cooking Light (Sept. 1999). Original recipe uses plain fat-free yogurt, but I prefer powdered buttermilk, reconstituted. This allegedly yields 12 standard-sized cupcakes, but I like to make 24 mini ones for parties. Nutmeg adds that special something.
I grew up eating pan de sal for breakfast or merienda (snack). My favorite was Baliwag-style, enriched with milk, butter and egg. Knead dough in bread machine, then shape and bake in regular oven. Breadcrumbs provide that distinctive crunchy crust. Masarap (delicious)! **Dough ball should be as sticky as the back of a Post-it Note. Otherwise, add up to 2 TBL of flour or water, as needed.**
Every Filipino I know loves Ginataan...a hot dessert of sweet potato and yam in sweetened coconut milk. We also add sliced Filipino Saba banana and little Mochiko balls (bilo bilo). Saba is a cooking banana similar to Plaintain, and can be found at Asian markets. Leave out the Saba if you can't locate it; do not use regular banana as it gets too mushy when cooked. Ginataan is Filipino comfort food at its finest!
Mung bean hopia is a Filipino-Chinese dessert consisting of a tender, flaky pastry filled with sweetened yellow mung bean paste. Adapted from a post by Ma. Elena Francisco (Lyn) from a recipe from Phoebe L. Parrone (Lucy). I hopia like it!
