I know! I made the mistake of asking what everyone wanted me to make, and that cake got the most votes. :D
You should become a baker and sell your cakes PTree !!

Long time since anyone has posted any nice treats on this thread.:yes:

I tried a new muffin recipe from The Joy of Vegan Baking: Hearty spiced cocoa muffins. They are for a New Year's get-together. It called for cayenne pepper and I so wanted to include it, but I thought it might be too much for some people, so I left it out. If they taste good (the batter tasted great, hehe), I will make them for myself and add the pepper.

I made chocolate cupcakes with cayenne pepper once but they are not for me. Didn’t like it at all. I brought them to work because, well, those people will eat anything, lol.

Lol, what it is about offices and free food? I know I can count on my colleagues to scoff up anything I bring in. I do like the spicy Mexican chocolate I have tried, so I would probably like the peppery chocolate muffins.

I dislike spices with chocolate! Not even cinnamon, but really not cayenne! I had a coworker I ate lunch with who was obsessed with it and kept offering it to me because she couldn't believe I didn't like it! :rolleyes:.
Wait-- I do love dark chocolate covered ginger! I liked Trader Joes till I found it had that stupid confectioners glaze :mad:

This muffin recipe had cinnamon, too. :D I really liked them because they weren't sicky-sweet. The recipe says you can make them sweeter if you want, but I'm definitely sticking with the original amount of sugar (3/4 cup). I'd rather taste the chocolate and spices. They have chocolate chips in them, too. We didn't end up going to our New Year's get-together because it was too cold and I wasn't feeling that great (still have that nasty cold), so my parents and I ended up eating some of the muffins. They really like them. My mom wants the recipe, but she, too, will not include the cayenne pepper. :D

I made gingerbread this morning. I brought it to work. It's a good thing because I could wipe out the whole pan in a couple of days. :D

They all look delicious. How do you keep your soda bread ? I find that it goes stale quite rapidly.
Thank you, shyvas. My boss was quite thrilled with the scones. He ate three at work last night, hehe. The soda bread does indeed last but a few days (even the recipe I use says so). I froze one loaf and the other I will keep in the fridge. I mostly toast it and have a little EB on it, so if it does go stale, I won't notice as much. :)
