Hi everyone! Taking a break first from beauty posts to share with you my baking bonding session with my kids and the recipe for chocolate crinkles. As they are getting older, the more I realize I can no longer shussshhh them or drive them away everytime I bake – that’s the thing about growing up alone. You get used to doing almost everything by yourself that when someone tries to pop your aloneness bubble you seem a bit shaken. But since it’s been nearly five years that I am no longer alone so I need to get used to someone asking “can I help?” or “can we bake together?” I am guessing this will be the first of many baking sessions with my kids.
This recipe is very easy to follow so it’s also a reason why I let my kids help me out. Although my younger daughter decided to throw a tantrum after I got mad at her for splattering powdered sugar all over, this still went out pretty well hihi…
Without further ado, here is the recipe for Chocolate Crinkles (as adopted from Chocolate Heaven magazine Winter 2012 Issue)
230 grams plain flour
230 grams caster sugar
60 grams cocoa powder
5 Tbsp sunflower oil
1 1/2 tsp baking powder
1 tsp vanilla extract
1/4 tsp salt
2 medium eggs
100 grams icing sugar
1) Preheat oven to 180 degrees Celsius and line baking sheets with greaseproof paper
2) Combine all ingredients apart from the icing sugar together in a mixing bowl until well blended.
3) Get 15 grams of the dough and form to a ball with your hands then coat it with icing sugar. Place the balls onto the baking sheets spaced well apart.
4) Place in the oven for around 10-12 minutes or until cracks start to appear. The centre should still be soft. Remove from the oven and leave to cool on a wire rack.
