Treat Petite August 2016 Round Up

It’s another Treat Petite round up for you to feast your eyes upon. The theme this month was ‘Anything Goes’ and there was a scrumptious selection of goodies entered into the linky this month.
Take a look…

Firstly my pal Janice, at Farmersgirl Kitchen entered her chocolate tiffin. Made with figs, I think these would pack a sweet punch! The no-bake recipe was ideal for those who didn’t want to turn on the oven in the hot weather!

Next, Caroline over at Caroline Makes, inadvertently predicted the first bake on this year’s GBBO, by making this lemon drizzle traybake. Ideal for picnics, it was drizzled with a lemon sugar syrup and I bet made everyone’s lips pucker up!

Angela at Only Crumbs Remain used bilberries in her Bilberry and Custard Crumble Tarts. An ingredient, I’ve never had before, Angela explains they can be a very liquid fruit, but using a metal tin can counteract the moisture. I think these would be a very elegant dessert at a dinner party.

Next Anukampa at Namaks Wada Nusar made Dates Maamouls, a popular Lebanese dessert. These are small cookies stuffed with different ingredients such as dates, dry fruit, nuts and so on. For her filling Anukampa used dates, cinnamon, cardamom and coconut. These look a perfect treat to enjoy with a cuppa.

Helen at Family Friends Food made two tempting recipes which she shared with us.

Firstly Cheese and Olive Savoury Muffins, loaded with tangy cheese, herbs, garlic and salty olives. I love the circles of olive dotted on top of each muffin. Super cute! And perfect for a summer picnic also!!

Helen also entered her blueberry and coconut ombre ice lollies. A combination of flavours I had never thought about using before, these lollies were graduating colours of purple and looked very easy on the eye and easy on the tummy!

Next, my baking pal, Kat at The Baking Explorer made a Cherry Traybake flavoured with almonds and topped with marzipan. The cherry decorations on top were adorable and I bet the traybake was a flavour explosion!

Another recipe using cherries were these gooey Chocolate Cherry Pecan Brownies from Kate, the Gluten Free Alchemist. If these fudgy, moist brownies tasted as good as Kate’s photographs looked I am making them pronto!

Next was my entry Cookie Dough Stuffed Oreos. I combined my love of Oreo cookies and combined this with a dollop of homemade cookie dough in each. A fun idea to make, which anyone who loves scraping out the bowl will adore!

Claire, the Foodie Quine, made Blackcurrant Oaty Flapjacks. She has had a bumper crop of blackcurrants in her garden this year and got inventive adding the wee currants to flapjacks. They look gorgeous and packed with flavour.

Elizabeth at Elizabeth’s Kitchen Diary used courgettes in her courgette and poppy seed muffins to give added moisture. She says they are not too sweet and almost savoury – they sound very intriguing!

Coconut Scones with coconut Nutella glaze were entered by The Lawyer’s Cookbook and are a scrummy combination of coconut milk, shredded coconut, pecans and Nutella. Why don’t Starbucks ever sell scones as good as these!?

Last, but not least we had Eb at easy peasy foodie with her Blueberry Porridge Squares. Now I adore porridge and blueberries, so combining the two and baking into little bars – yes please!!

What a delectable round up of treats which I’m sure gives us all some inspiration! Thanks to everyone who took part and look out for Treat Petite next month, hosted by Kat, The Baking Explorer.
