Zed plans a bake sale and his ma helps out.
My son Zed has committed himself to a service trip to El Salvador over spring break - he's going with the Foundation for Self-Sufficiency in Central America. I gave him half the money he needed, which he immediately spent on the airline tickets. I pointed out he then had no money to eat, etc. while he was gone.
Not ordinarily a very entrepreneurial individual, Zed has decided to hold a bake sale during the intermission in my concert tomorrow night. I'm worried only twenty people are going to show up, but what the heck, I like baking too, so here are the recipes for my contributions.
1/2 cup soft butter
1/2 teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon cinnamon
1/2 teaspoon cloves
1 3/4 cups flour
1 teaspoon baking soda
1 1/2 cups raisins
1 cup applesauce
Cream butter and sugar; beat in egg, salt, and spices.
Add remaining ingredients and mix swiftly. Cook at 350 degrees for about 20 minutes. Makes one dozen muffins.
1/4 cup confectioner's sugar
1 teaspoon vanilla
2 cups flour
1 1/2 cups flaked coconut
Cream butter, sugar, and vanilla; stir in other ingredients. Make balls not quite 1" in diameter and bake at 350 for 15-18 minutes. Makes 40 balls.
By the way, I indulged in a dozen silicone muffin liners at Food Lion and I am utterly ecstatic. The muffins pop right out, no need for greasing and flouring. Utter bliss.
