Having moved from Boston, it seemed especially fitting that the first recipe was for whoopie pies, a cream-filled cookie sandwich. I was also pretty excited by the butter ruler they included for easy butter measuring, my long-term struggle when baking in grams.
BakedIn itself was amazing. The box is narrow so it will fit through a letter slot and having everything pre-measured made it all a lot simpler. Even so, they tell you the measurements of each ingredient so you can replicate without the pre-measured bags.
- 110g soft butter
- 50g caster sugar
- 100g light brown sugar
- 60g cocoa powder
- 260g plain flour
- ¼ teaspoon baking soda
- ¼ teaspoon baking powder
- 1/8 teaspoon salt
- ¼ teaspoon vanilla
- 1 egg
- 40mL of milk
- Preheat the oven to 180C. Line baking sheet with parchment paper.
- In a large bowl, cream together the butter and caster sugar. Add the egg, vanilla, cocoa powder, flour, baking soda, baking powder and salt. Mix well.
- Add the milk and mix until the mixture becomes firm (you can add more milk if it’s too crumbly). You can use your hands to mix as well.
- Roll the dough into a log and wrap in plastic wrap. Chill for 20 minutes.
- Break the dough into small pieces and roll into munchkin-size balls. Place about one inch apart on the baking sheet (they don’t flatten out much so you can press them into discs for more cookie-like shapes).
- Bake for 8-10 minutes or until set. Repeat for all dough.
