Chef Jacy’s Sweet Sweet Cupcakes

Has the cold and snowy weather given you a sweet tooth for yummies of various flavors?  Colors that make you think “I can’t wait for spring”?  Well, when the weather is YUK I want something “BEYOND THE YUM” so into the kitchen I go to create favorites.

As a little girl at age 12 who made the entire Thanksgiving dinner for a family of seven, I have always loved cooking and baking.  One of my favorite things to bake was cupcakes of every flavor, color, kind and to share them with my neighbor friends and family.  Thus my title “Chef Jacy” that stuck.  Pictured are yummy but simple cupcakes for a grab and eat treat, no fancy decorating but BEYOND THE YUM in creamy sweet flavor.  Pictured: Chocolate, Peanut Butter, Almond Coconut, Orange, Lemon.

These are a great project for you with your family or friends to share together on inclement weather days (or any day really) and enjoy the work of your hands in creating and enjoying them.  My recipe created at age 12 is just like the recipes in the project book I used for this batch.  It’s a great little book to add to your cookbook library.  Here is the cover and it is available online.

Enjoy!!!

 

Incredible Lip-Smacking Orange Scones

JACY’S LIP-SMACKING ORANGE SCONES*

Lip-Smacking defined “tasting extremely good” and that is exactly what this scone recipe is and more.  It, along with my cream scones recipe is my favorite.  There is just something about the taste and aroma of orange that is romantic, calming, colorful and yum.  If you haven’t tried one of my earlier recipes for scones, try this one.  You will love it and yes, your lips will smack with a smile!

Recipe:
2 cups all-purpose flour
1 tablespoon baking powder
1/2 teaspoon baking soda
1/4 teaspoon salt
2 tablespoons sugar
1 tablespoon grated orange zest (or orange peel)
1/2 cup butter, cut up (very cold butter) (not vegetable shortening!!)
2/3 cup buttermilk (or 2/3 cup of cream/milk and 1 tablespoon vinegar set out for 1/2 hour)
1 tablespoon orange juice
1/4 teaspoon each: cinnamon, nutmeg (optional)*

1 tablespoon milk
1 tablespoon sugar
(for sprinkling on top) or use icing recipe below (I use both)

If desired:

  • Add 1 cup of your favorite goodies to this recipe:
  • chocolate or vanilla chips *(I love them with dark chocolate chips)
  • cranberries or raisins
  • chopped almond or nuts

ICING
1 cup confectioners sugar
1 tablespoon butter, melted
1/2 teaspoon orange zest
1 tablespoon orange juice
Cream by teaspoon until right consistency achieved.

COMBINE first 6 ingredients; cut in butter with a pastry blender until mixture is crumbly. Add buttermilk and dark chocolate chips (or favored goodie) stirring just until moistened.

TURN dough onto a lightly floured surface; knead 5 or 6 times, Pat into a an 10-inch circle. Cut into wedges, and place 1 inch apart on a lightly greased baking sheet (I use pizza pan). Brush with milk, and sprinkle with 1 tablespoon milk.

BAKE at 425 degrees for 15 minutes or until scones are golden brown (do not overbake!!).

Remove from oven and cool. If using the icing as well, drizzle by tablespoons on scones while still warm.
