Been trying lots of new stuff this week. Stole a cookies recipe from my bakery, and now I finally know how to make piped shortcrust pastry cookies that keep their shape during baking. Yay, love them! Been trying to find a working recipe for these for ages.
Then I baked donuts for 1st of May is on it’s way after all. This time I made the cake like ones with baking powder, also not with yeast this year. Used the recipe from here (only in Finnish), and they turned out to be amazingly a lot like donuts. Even Carlos approves. Glazed them with chocolate.
Since I already was frying the donuts, I fried some meat doughnuts, too. Recipe still works. And I did bake bread too, rolls this time. Plaited them, to give them a nice shape. Turned out to be cute. Think they’d also work well being dipped in lye, for I also took some lye home from work. Yum yum.
We also carried out some animal tests this week. We’ve been taking Tiuku out for walks for a while now, after purchasing an 8-meter-flexi it has been going really smooth. The other day we walked altogether 4 kms with her, half of which she walked on her own. And then today we took her biking with us! That worked as well, she was traveling in a basket on front of my bike. She is an amazing creature, gotta love her.
