Butterscotch Pecan Mini Loaves #TheCakeSliceBakers


Here we are the August 2021 edition of the Cake Slice Bakers. For 2021; we are baking from Little Everyday Cakes: 50+ Perfectly Proportioned Confections to Enjoy Any Day of the Week by Candace Floyd.* I can't believe that we're already halfway through the year. In many ways 2020 dragged on as the shelter-in-place orders continued month after month; on the other hand, it was a completely blur because there weren't milestones to mark the passage of time.

In this group, we are given a selection of three cake recipes. We each choose one cake to bake, and then on the 20th - never before - we all post about our cake on our blogs. There are a few rules that we follow, but the most important ones are to have fun and enjoy baking & eating cakes!



Follow our FacebookInstagram, and Pinterest pages where you can find all of our cakes, as well as inspiration for many other cakes. You can also click on the links below to take you to each of our cakes. If you have a blog and are interested in joining The Cake Slice Bakers and baking along with us, please send an email to thecakeslicebakers at gmail dot com for more details.

The Cake Slice Bakers also have a new Facebook group called The Cake Slice Bakers and Friends. This group is perfect for those who do not have a blog but want to join in the fun and bake through this book. Our choices for August 2021 were ~

Butterscotch Pecan Mini Loaves
very slightly adapted from Floyd's recipe

I thought that I didn't have photos of the final loaves, but I just found them. So I am updating this post and sharing these gorgeous mini loaves that were such a hit with my family.

Ingredients makes 4 mini loaves or 1 regular loaf

  • 2/3 cup butter (I used salted, so skipped the added salt)
  • 3/4 cup organic granulated sugar
  • 2/3 cup yogurt (whole milk preferred)
  • 3 eggs
  • 1-3/4 cup flour
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1/4 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/2 cup butterscotch chips
  • 1/2 cup chopped pecans
  • Also needed: loaf pan or mini loaves; butter for greasing the pan


Procedure

Preheat the oven to 350 degrees Fahrenheit. Butter your pans and set aside. Melt the butter over low heat and let cool slightly.

In a medium mixing bowl, whisk together the flour, baking powder, and baking soda.

In a large mixing bowl, whisk together the sugar and yogurt. Beat in the eggs one at a time. Mix in the melted, but slightly cooled, butter. Fold in the flour mixture. Stir until just moistened. Then fold in the butterscotch chips and pecans.

Divide batter between the buttered hollows and place in the preheated oven. Bake for 35 to 40 minutes for the mini loaves and 45 to 50 minutes for a regular loaf.

Let cool in the pan for 10 minutes before inverting. Let cool completely before slicing. Enjoy!

  1. I hate when life gets busy and you lose track of where you are in the blogging process and eat all the evidence LOL.

Jamaican Stew Peas #EattheWorld

  Here we are at November #EattheWorld event. What a year this has been! This challenge has been one that gave us some excuse for virtual travel as we've been sheltered-in-place with the coronavirus epidemic for most of 2020. So, we've been able to read about different parts of the world and create a dinner, or at least a dish, with that cuisine. This Eat the World project is spearheaded by Evelyne of  CulturEatz . Read more about  her challenge . This month, Evelyne had us heading to somewhere tropical: Jamaica. I have actually been to Jamaica, but it was almost thirty years ago...and it was just a jumping off point for the rest of our Caribbean exploration. I don't remember eating anything at all!

#comfortfood: Jamie Oliver's Ossobuco with Bean Ragout

As one of Jamie Oliver's Food Revolution Day Ambassadors ( I'm the Monterey #FRD2014 rep! ) I will be sent a copy of his latest cookbook - to cook from and write about. I can't wait. I do have to laugh though, because its title is  Comfort Food . And, according to a good friend:  I only make uncomfortable food . Oh, well. I can learn! To celebrate launch day - today - I'm sharing one of the recipes. Here's Jamie Oliver's Ossobuco alla Milanese recipe from his new cookbook, Comfort Food. And here's my adaptation. I typically don't eat veal, so I went to our local butcher for some lamb shanks sliced into an osso buco-style cut; but they had just sold their last shanks. Darn. But then I noticed the "never tethered...free to roam" on the veal package and decided to go for it. I added in shelling beans to make a ragout and served it over wild rice instead of risotto. Also, I used lots of different herbs in my gremolata instead of just pa

Learning About Chablis, A Compelling Label, and Gougères #PureChablis #Winophiles #Sponsored

  This is a sponsored post written by me on behalf of  Chablis Wines   in conjunction with the  May 2021 Chablis  #Winophiles  event.  Complimentary wine was provided for this post  though no other compensation was received.  This page may contain affiliate links. Jill of L'Occasion is hosting the French Winophiles this month and we are turning our eyes towards the wines of Chablis.
