But ONLY if they are the non-rainy variety.
Thank goodness we are finally experiencing a few sunny, dare I say, Spring-like days here in Seattle. It has been 196 days since we hit 66 degrees, today's predicted high temperature. A loooooooonnnnnnnnnnnnng time. We haven't hit 66 yet but at least it was a nice enough day to break out some short sleeves (for G at least) and a picnic lunch in the backyard.
Yesterday, while mostly sunny, just wasn't as nice although that might have been due to the bloody noses, migraines, and overall blahness that invaded the house rather than the weather.
The kids and I all needed a pick-me-up and I knew exactly what it should be: Emergency Baking!
G & M both love to assist me in the kitchen and I love baking so I knew a good time would be had by all but I made sure that the recipe added a little silliness to the mix- just in case. I needed to make sure all the resident grumpopotami were kicked to the curb. Luckily I had seen a recipe that fit the bill to a tee only the night before over on Pinterest.
CAKE BATTER BLONDIES.
Ooooooooh yes. A little crazy but we were in dire need of food decorated with rainbow sprinkles.
I gathered up the ingredients. In perfect Murphy's Law fashion the only ingrediant not in my cupboard: the rainbow sprinkles. One quick trip to the market later we were ready to go.
While I don't mind making more complex recipes with the kiddos, this recipe was great because everything could be dumped into one bowl and stirred.
Into the oven for 30 mins. Beware. This deceptively short time frame may feel like 3 hours with some little person asking every two minutes, "Are they ready yet?"
A (very) few hard won minutes for cooling and, Voila!
Cake Batter Blondies. Yum.
If you are interested in making these for yourself, the recipe is here at Girl Meets Life.
You know you want to make some... The 50+ repins I got in under 24 hours when I pinned this on Pinterest says that I am not the only one craving more cake batter and rainbow sprinkles in her life.
