Oh - Them "Golden Eggs"!

Oh! them golden eggs, how good they are! Now I know this isn't how the song goes, but for today that's how it went here. I finally got a chanced to make Gesine's Golden Eggs! I have checked out the book so many times at the library, I hope they would say, here it's yours! Nope that's not how libraries work, oh well. Someday, I will be able to buy the book, so for now, I check and re-check it out. I enjoy this book as not only a cookbook, but a good reading book! The book you might ask? Confections of a (Closet) Master Baker by Gesine Bullock-Prado. (I hope you know of her and have read this book along with the new one, Sugar Baby.) Our library doesn't have 'Sugar Baby', but I keep bugging them to buy it.
Anyway, you must go to this web site and see how these delicious little treats are made! http://confectionsofamasterbaker.blogspot.com/2009/08/golden-egg-demo.html
I don't know if I can legally put on the recipe but this is how I made them:





MIX




And MIX

And MIX some more. There is a lot of mixing to this recipe, but it is worth it. Hang in there. Put into egg shaped muffin pans and bake at 350 degrees F for about 20 minutes. Turn out of pans and dipped into melted butter, then dip into a cinnamon, sugar mixture and ENJOY! For they are as she says, like a good old-fashion donut, baked not fried.

I used a large size muffin pan makes 8 at a time, (by Wilton) and a bite-size muffin pan (12 at a time, also by Wilton). I made 21 large and 24 bite-size all with this one batter. The grandchildren and I have decided this will become a new Easter treat!! Thanks, Gesine!

Will also be putting on to the Sweet As Sugar Cookies, Sweets for a Saturday, Week #14, Savory Sundays and Dee Dee Delights.
