Sweet Treats “for the kids”

Someone posted this video, which is pretty funny, and also made me hungry.

I decided to make my own.


1 cup flour
1 tsp baking powder
1 small banana (smashed)
2 tsp sugar
1/3 cup unsweetened vanilla almond milk


Form dough into 4 balls.

Put a pat of butter, some piloncillo, and freshly ground cinnamon into the center of each one.

Flatten into a biscuit, brown lightly on both sides in oven-proof skillet (e.g. cast iron) sprayed with butter flavour PAM, finish in pre-heated oven at 375F for a few minutes until done.


Red Mole with Chicken

Continuing my recent Mexican theme, started the day with huevos rancheros, then made Rick Bayless’s chicken in red mole sauce for dinner (here is a slightly different version than the one in the cookbook: http://www.rickbayless.com/recipe/classic-red-mole/), and here is someone’s excessively photographed version (http://www.thepauperedchef.com/2010/06/my-first-mole-rich-red-mole-with-chicken.html).
Also made a batch of salsa verde, a side of okra with tomatoes, peppers and epazote, and some turkey chorizo which I look forward to eating with eggs for breakfast.

Seriously thinking about doing the even more elaborate turkey in mole poblano sauce for thanksgiving (http://www.saveur.com/article/Recipes/Turkey-in-Mole-Poblano)
