Boy howdy, is it BRIGHT out there! Day two of our “stuck at home” stay-cation and the stir crazy is setting in. Especially for Will, who doesn’t work from often and certainly not TWO DAYS IN A ROW! He’s outside, again. Shoveling, again. Looking for stuff to do, again.
I, on the other hand, have kept myself busy with housework. All our laundry is clean, dishes are done, mail is sorted, bills are paid, schoolwork is complete, meals are planned, dogs are groomed and I am about to lose it. When I get tooooo bored, I start baking and that is about the worst thing ever, because then the eating comes. Lots and lots of eating.
Yesterday I was on my feet a bunch so I didn’t get to bake the thing I really wanted, which was Tortuga Rum Cake. Boy and I ended up making Cake Pan Cookies. They are just about all gone. Seriously, if you want baked goods around here, you better move quick and snag what you want while it is still being cut from the pan.
So I can add to the torment of those around me, here is the recipe for your own baking, eating and then jogging on the treadmill pleasure.1 box of yellow, white or chocolate cake mix. (We used yellow, from now on I will stick to white) 5 TBSP melted butter 2 beaten eggs Chips, chunks or nuggets of your desired variety and quantity (we mixed in white chocolate and topped with dark chocolate)
Mix all ingredients with an electric mixer – I used my Kitchen Aid. Blend it all together into the stickiest mess you have ever had to work with. This is going to be cookie dough mortar. Do you best to spread it in a greased baking pan, I used a 9 x 9 square but just about anything should work. Bake in a pre-heated 350 degree oven for 20 minutes, remove when done, cut and eat while watching TV, washing dishes, getting ready for bed – whatever. You won’t be able to keep out of them.
Yeah, you’re welcome.
And yeah, that’s Mickey.
