Best Chocolate Chip Cookies Made in Merida Yucatan, Mexico


What you will need:

3 cups of all purpose flour..1teaspoon baking soda..1 teaspoon fine sea salt..2 stick melted butter, but not hot..1/2 cup sugar..1 1/4 light brown sugar..2 teaspoon vanilla..2 large eggs at room temperature..2 cups chocolate chips.

Preheat oven to 350…bake from 12 to 15 minutes. I like making big bakery style cookies with this recipe. Space them 2 inches apart. I use parchment paper for easy clean up. These are crisp on the outside and chewy inside.

I personally put the cookie dough in the freezer for one hour before I bake them that allows them to be big and tall and not flatten out so much. THESE ARE SO EASY AND SO GOOD.

Simple Pound Cake…Merida Yucatan


Just a quick note, I use Swan Down Cake Flour….Before we get to the step-by-step instructions, a few words about the method. Pound cake is a “high-ratio” cake, which means that the weight of the sugar equals or exceeds the weight of the flour.

Why does this matter? Instead of the more common “creaming” method (where the butter and sugar are beaten together before the eggs, flour, and liquid are added), high-ratio cakes can be made using the “high-ratio” or “quick-mix” method. This involves mixing all the dry ingredients with the butter and some of the liquid first, then adding the remaining liquid ingredients. This method is not only faster and easier than the traditional creaming method, but it also yields incredibly tender and fine-textured cakes

Scrape down the sides of the bowl. Add the remaining egg mixture, in 2 separate additions, beating about 30 seconds after each addition to combine.To begin, combine the milk, eggs, and vanilla in a medium bowl. Whisk with a fork until just combined and set aside. To begin, combine the milk, eggs, and vanilla in a medium bowl. Whisk with a fork until just combined and set aside.Mix on low speed for about 30 seconds or until blended.Add the butter and half of the egg mixture.Increase the mixer speed to medium (high speed if using a hand mixer) and beat for one minute. Note note ..sometime I add a few drop of almond extract to the batter.

Scrape the batter into the prepared pan and smooth the top with an offset spatula or the back of a spoon.Scrape the batter into the prepared pan and smooth the top with an offset spatula or the back of a spoon.

Bake for 45 to 55 minutes, or until the cake is golden brown and a thin wooden skewer or toothpick inserted into the center of the cake comes out clean.

INGREDIENTS

  • 3 tablespoons milk (skim, low fat, or whole)
  • 3 large eggs
  • 1-1/2 teaspoons vanilla extract
  • 1-1/3 cups cake flour, spooned into measuring cup and leveled with a straight edge
  • 3/4 cup sugar
  • 3/4 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 13 tablespoons unsalted butter, softened (no need to cut it in pieces)

INSTRUCTIONS

  1. Preheat the oven to 350°F and set an oven rack in the middle position. Lightly grease an 8-in x 4-in x 2½-inch loaf pan with butter or nonstick cooking spray. Dust with flour, shaking off any excess. (Alternatively, use a nonstick cooking spray with flour in it, such as Baker’s Joy or Pam Baking Spray with Flour.)
  2. In a medium bowl, whisk together the milk, eggs, and vanilla until just combined.
  3. In the bowl of an electric mixer fitted with the paddle attachment (or with a hand mixer), place the flour, sugar, baking powder, and salt. Mix on low speed for about 30 seconds or until blended. Add the butter and half of the egg mixture. Mix on low speed until the dry ingredients are moistened. Increase the mixer speed to medium (high speed if using a hand mixer) and beat for one minute. Scrape down the sides of the bowl. Add the remaining egg mixture, in 2 separate additions, beating about 30 seconds after each addition to combine. Do not over-mix. (The batter may have a slightly curdled or grainy appearance — that’s okay.)Scrape the batter into the prepared pan and smooth the top with an offset spatula or the back of a spoon. Bake for 50 to 55 minutes, or until the cake is golden brown and a thin wooden skewer or toothpick inserted into the center of the cake comes out clean.
  4. Place the cake on a wire rack to cool for about 10 minutes. Then remove the cake from the pan and cool completely on a wire rack. Wrap the cooled cake in plastic wrap or store in a large sealable plastic bag.
  5. The wrapped pound cake will keep for several days at room temperature, for one week when refrigerated.
