I was asked by a couple of my followers to post my recipe for these cupcakes, this is a family recipe that my grandmother used to make, she didn't make a cupcake but she made a double decker sheet cake, and she didn't use whole wheat, but it was GOOD! So here is the recipe, I hope you like it, and let me know how they turn out.  I think I am going to make these cupcakes for Easter Sunday dessert.

Ingredients
2 1/2 cups of whole wheat white flour
1 tsp baking powder
1 tsp baking soda
1 tsp salt
1 cup light brown sugar
1 tsp vanilla
1 cup buttermilk *Homemade
2 eggs *Brown Fresh Eggs
1 tsp white vinegar
1/3 cup coconut milk
1 cup canola oil or applesauce
1/4 cup fresh pineapple juice
1/4 cup chopped fresh pineapple
Set oven to 350
Mix wet ingredients, and then add dry ingredients until well blended. Fill cupcakes cups 1/2 way. Bake for 20 minutes, for standard cupcakes, bake for 12 minutes for mini cupcakes.  Let cool on wire rack.
Cream Cheese Pineapple Frosting
8oz package of cream cheese (softened)
1 stick of unsalted butter (softened)
3 cups of powdered sugar
1 tsp vanilla
Fresh pineapple juice w/ chopped pineapples in it
Coconut (sweetened or unsweetened whichever you prefer)
Mix cream cheese and butter together, and add powdered sugar in 1 cup at a time, add some fresh pineapple juice (not too much).
~Now for one of my secrets: Warm your fresh pineapple mixture on the stovetop, and then dip your cupcake in the mixture (it will seep into the cupcake and make it so moist and juicy! Frost and dip in coconut~
ENJOY!!

Gluten Free Fudge Cookies




Here is a recipe that I got from King Arthur Recipes a while back and I had it hidden in my recipe book.  These cookies are really GOOD,  and I am not just saying that. Best of all they are flourless, rich chocolate cookies with no added fat, and no gluten.  Plus they are so easy to make, just stir together a few simple ingredients, scoop onto a baking sheet, and bake for 8 minutes. 


Ingredients

2 1/4 cups confectioners' sugar
1/4 teaspoon salt
1 cup cocoa powder
3 large egg whites
2 teaspoons gluten-free vanilla extract

Directions

Preheat oven to 350, line your baking sheets with parchment paper.
Mix together all of the ingredients until nice and smooth.
Drop the cookie dough onto the baking sheets.
Bake for 8 minutes.
Remove the cookies from the oven, and allow them to cool right on the pan.

*You should get 16 large cookies


ENJOY!

Whole Wheat Orange Cupcakes with Brown Sugar Maple Walnut Glaze



I shared this over at KdBuggie Boutique last week and I wanted to share it with you also.  I hope you enjoy.
_________________________________________________________________
 Whole Wheat Orange Cupcakes with Brown Sugar Maple Walnut Glaze, the name tells you that it is a GOOD cupcake, and I make it healthy, in this recipe you have to make the walnuts and put the brown sugar maple glaze on them, I was eating that by itself, the walnuts tasted like maple cinnamon and it was just delicious, ok let's begin before I have flashbacks.

There are four parts to this cupcake, but they are all pretty easy steps, because if I can do it, then anyone can!

Ingredients

2 1/2 cups of whole wheat flour

1 tsp baking powder

1 tsp baking soda

1 tsp salt

1 cup light brown sugar

1 tsp vanilla

1 cup buttermilk

2 eggs

1 tsp white vinegar

1 cup canola oil

1/2 fresh squeezed orange juice

1 tbsp orange zest

Set oven to 350

Mix wet ingredients, and then add dry ingredients until well blended. Fill cupcakes cups 1/2 way. Bake for 20 minutes. Let cool on wire rack.


Walnuts


8 ounces whole shelled walnuts

3/4 cup light brown sugar

1/2 cup fat free milk

3/4 tsp cinnamon

1/4 tsp salt

1/2 tsp vanilla

Set oven to 350ºF. Spread the walnuts on a baking sheet and roast for 10 minutes. Allow to cool completely.

In a saucepan combine sugar, milk, cinnamon, and salt. Whisk over medium heat until all the ingredients combine together, then bring to a boil. Boil the mixture about 15 minutes. Remove from heat and carefully stir in the vanilla. Immediately stir in the toasted walnuts. Set aside.

Glaze

1/2 cup light brown sugar

1/4 cup water

2 tbsp unsalted butter

1/2 tsp orange zest

1/4 cup walnuts mixture, chopped

Combine sugar, water, butter and orange zest in a saucepan over medium high heat. Bring to a boil, reduce heat to medium, and simmer for about 10 minutes. Remove from heat, stir in vanilla, then add walnuts. Allow to cool before drizzling over the cooled cupcakes. (Watch out because the walnut glaze is addicting, I ate two and then kept eating, its a snack by itself)

Cream Cheese Frosting

8 ounces of light cream cheese (softened)

1 stick of unsalted butter (softened)

3 cups of powdered sugar

1 tsp vanilla

orange zest and glazed walnuts for garnish

Cream butter and cream cheese, add vanilla, then add powdered sugar 1 cup at a time until to the consistency that you want it.

Take your cooled cupcake, and drizzle the walnut glaze on the cupcake, frost and then garnish the top of your cupcake with the walnut glaze and some orange zest. This cupcake tastes just like orange sherbet, I could just eat the frosting on top that's how good it is.

Make sure you try this recipe, you won't be disappointed.


ENJOY!

Homemade Marshmallow Fondant







I did it, I made Homemade Marshmallow Fondant with my husbands help.  I thought it was so hard, but its not at all, just a few steps and you have fondant for your cupcakes.  You can freeze for up to 3 weeks, that's the part I like, so next week I will be using it to make Easter Cupcakes, we will see how it comes out.
Ingredients

16 oz marshmallows (I used the big ones, you can use mini ones)
1 cup of water
2 lbs of powdered sugar
1/2 cup butter flavor shortening (that comes in the little block)

Directions

Put your marshmallows in a microwave safe bowl add 3 tbsp of water and put in microwave for 1minute 30 seconds on high.  Sift your powdered sugar.  Add the butter flavor shortening to your mixer bowl, and add the powdered sugar.  Take your marshmallows out of microwave and stir until it becomes like marshmallow fluff, add it to your mixer.  If you have a mixer like mine Kitchenaid use your bread tool to mix. Start off on low and then pick it up to medium until it looks like bread dough.  Take out put on a powdered sugar clean surface and knead it like you knead bread for about 15 minutes (you can add a little water to the fondant if it starts breaking), shape into a ball you can use it now by rolling it out and get creative, (you can add food coloring for different colors also) or like I did put plastic wrap on it and freezing it until I need to use it next week, you can freeze up to 3 weeks.

My Blog's New Look

I wanted to give my blog a face lift, something just very simple, and what's more simple than a white background, I LOVE it.  Let me know what you think?

Whole Wheat S'more Cupcakes

~Please join me over at 504 Main where I am a Guest Host on this awesome blog, I am showcasing my Orange Blossom Cupcakes~

___________________________________________________________________

Hershey Chocolate / Marshmallows/ Graham Crackers what do you get when you put those three things together.  The most wonderful cupcakes in the world, and then when you make them healthy that is even better.  So since I made Whole Wheat S'more Cookies last week, I had to make a Whole Wheat S'more Cupcake, it was very easy and nice to get creative.


Ingredients

2 1/2 cups whole wheat flour
1 tsp baking soda
1 tsp baking powder
1 tsp salt
2 tbsp cocoa
1 cup of hershey chocolate chips

1 cup mini marshmallows

1 cup of mashed up graham crackers
1 cup light brown sugar
1 cup canola oil
1 cup buttermilk *Homemade
2 eggs * I use fresh brown eggs
1 tsp vanilla
1 tsp vinegar
Mix all your wet ingredients together, then mix in your dry ingredients.   Fill your cups 1/2 full, and put chocolate chips/mini marshmallows and crushed graham crackers in each cupcake batter, bake for 20 minutes, let cool on wire rack.

Marshmallow cream icing

1 cup marshmallows
3 tbsp fat free milk
1 tsp vanilla

Mix until creamy, spread the icing on your cupcakes, it may be runny but that's alright it will harden once its on the cupcake and then decorate your cupcake if you wish, I got the idea to decorate the top of the cupcake by a picture that I saw in a food magazine, it came out really cute, but you can decorate the top anyway you like, I have seen so many different interpretations of S'more Cupcakes.



All we need now is a campfire,  I wish I had a torch so I could have put a little burn on the marshmallows, maybe next time.  ENJOY!

Pamela's Heavenly Treats - Event Pictures

Hello all thanks for all your kinds words about my St. Patrick Day Cupcakes that I made for an event that I was showcasing my healthy treats at, my table looked very nice, everyone there kept saying that is was so lovely, it looks beautiful, and many other kind words. 

One thing that did happen was one of my boxes with the mini key lime pie cupcakes in it, most of the cupcakes moved and flipped over, not sure how that happened, I have the separators in there, I think maybe when I was driving and turning a corner maybe the box moved, that's never happened to me before, but I made due. They still looked nice!  So here are a few pictures:


Have a Blessed Sunday!


Happy St. Patrick's Day!

I have an event tonight that I had to make cupcakes and cookies for 80+ people.  I am so beat right now, I have been up since 6:00am, but I wanted to show you all the nice cupcakes and cookies that I made.  Everything came out wonderful, I am so pleased.  I have to take everything over to the event at 6:00pm so I have about 2 hours to try to relax a little.






Have a Happy St. Patrick's Day!!!

Who's behind Pamela's Heavenly Treats?



 I thought it was time to put my face out there, for all who do not know me, here is the face behind Pamela's Heavenly Treats.  I rarely take pictures, I am always the one snapping them.  Here I am, the person behind making heavenly treats HEALTHY.  I had someone say to me I would have thought an older lady was behind these healthy treats, the reason he gave me was because the treats taste so good, pure, rich but are HEALTHY, and he loved that.  So on that note, I am not an old lady, I might feel like one sometimes, but I am only in my mid 30's but as my kids say your old :-) of course to them I am. 

A little background, I learned to cook and bake from my grandmother, I was about 11 cooking full Sunday dinners all by myself including dessert.  I cooked an entire Thanksgiving dinner including 4 desserts when I was 16 (my grandmother was in the hospital because she had knee surgery) so someone had to fix the meal and it was me, and my grandfather said this food tastes just like your grandmothers.  So I learned from the best, and I just incorporated all of her recipes plus my own to make HEALTHY desserts.  When we think of dessert, we say oh that is going to be good because it contains sugar, all purpose flour, imitation extracts and other unhealthy ingredients.  So when I thought of how can I come up with some good wholesome HEALTHY desserts I thought hey why not try to make cupcakes and cookies healthy, and to my surprise IT WORKED. 

I had a man the other week say to me (he was eating one of my Oatmeal Raisin Cookies) these cookies are HEAVENLY!  That made my day, sometimes I say to myself is this real, or am I dreaming.  I just love to make other people happy, and when I see people eating my treats and loving them that makes my day.

So here I am Pamela just an ordinary lady, nothing special about me.  Come on over and say HI!  I also want to thank everyone who is following me though email, google, linky etc.  I so appreciate that, can't believe I have over 80 followers that I can see and I don't know how many email followers.  Thanks again for making my blog and business a success in just 3 months.

*Make sure you stop by my new ETSY SHOP where you can buy my healthy cupcake and cookie mixes*

~I also wanted to let fellow bloggers know that there is this new free site, that you can upload your pictures to and make so many different effects, text, borders it is a wonderful site, its called PICMONKEY go and check it out.

Have a blessed weekend!

*Next week: S'more Cupcakes ( I made them and they were so gooey and good)  and  Orange Cupcakes w/brown sugar walnut glaze (these taste like orange sherbet with maple syrup) you don't want to miss this because these cupcakes are GOOD, GOOD and GOOD!

Food Waste Friday


Join me over at The Frugal Girl for Food Waste Friday, where we are all accountable to each other for our weekly food waste.  For me this week I did GREAT, no food waste.  I did have an orange that I just zested and put in a baggie last week, but I cut it open and it was still fresh, so I squeezed the fresh juice out to make some Orange Blossom Cupcakes.  I love it when we can be resourceful on our almost food waste.

I also ordered my compost bin from the Bay Restoration here in my town, I thought I would support them by ordering a compost bin and rain barrel.  So I will be composting a little if I do have food waste which is great news for me.

How did you all do this week?

Whole Wheat Honey Homemade Bread


Something a little different today, Whole Wheat Honey Homemade Bread tutorial.  My family LOVES this bread, so glad that this batch makes two loaves because one loaf is gone for dinner and the other loaf for breakfast in the morning.
There is alot of steps to this, but that's how it is when you make bread, but once bread is done and ready to sample, you wont even care that it took you a little over 2 hours to make this bread!
Here we go:

2 1/3 cups warm water
1/4 cup honey
4 tbsp butter, melted
1 1/2 tbsp yeast
2 1/2 tsp salt
4 3/4 cups whole wheat flour

Combine 2 cups of flour, yeast and salt in the bowl of a mixer.

Dry Bread Ingredients


Add warm water, honey, and melted butter. Mix on low speed until ingredients are combined, then beat on medium speed for about 3 minutes.

Mix in 2 more cups flour and add a little bit more to make a kneadable dough, it will still be soft.

Dough

Turn the dough onto a floured surface and knead for 5 minutes, or until smooth.  You can also let your mixer knead the dough if you want, but I am old school and this is how my grandmother did it.

Put dough back into the mixing bowl, cover with a wet towel, let rise in a warm place for 45 minutes.

Dough is rising

Punch down the dough , and divide it in half, and roll each half out into a rectangular shape, and place into a greased 9x5 inch bread pan.
Dough had risen
Dough in loaf pans







Cover the loafs with a wet towel and let rise in a warm place for 30 minutes, or until doubled.

Dough waiting to rise again

 
Bake in preheated 350 degree oven for 30 minutes, or until the bottom of the loaf sounds hollow when tapped.  Turn out onto a wire rack to cool before slicing.

Event: Lots of Pictures of My Healthy Cupcakes and Cookies



What fun it is to set up your cupcake and cookie table at an event.  I had my twins there helping me even though they kept asking can they have a cupcake, I mean really!  I love setting up because not only are you a baker, but now you have to create in your mind how you want your cupcake and cookie table to look.  You really want to impress the people.  I believe I did a great job tonight.  I have another event at the same place on next Saturday where I will be providing Thin Mint Cupcakes and Key Lime Pie Cupcakes for St. Patrick's Day.

For this event I made Mini Cupcakes - Lemon Blossom with Lemon Cream Cheese Frosting, Red Velvet with Vanilla Cream Cheese Frosting, Chewy Oatmeal Raisin Cookies and Chocolate Surprise Cookies.

Check out the beautiful labels that you see on the table, they were made by my dear friend Laurel, she also made my business cards, she is so talented.

Here are some pictures of the cupcake and cookie table where I showcased my healthy treats.  Thanks for looking.
