On Saturday I was too lazy to move, so I spent the whole day in my room, in the kitchen and in the TV room… I finished an amazing book: “Les amants de Gibraltar” (the lovers of Gibraltar) by Dominique Baudis and decided to bake some “cakeys”. The nice thing about this Saturday is that friends have been coming in and out of the house. A close friend stopped by after her romantic getaway, the other was too sick to do anything else and some others just had 45 minutes to loose, and the last one came in with a big sweatshirt but looked nothing like someone who wanted to chill. She was full of energy and tried dragging the remaining ones to a charming restaurant in Monot Street in Beirut: Goutons Voir. Mission Accomplished! We had great food and a quality time!
And since then, I’ve been receiving text messages asking me to post the cakeys recipe… So here it is…
- 2 1/4 cups of flour
- 1/2 tsp of baking soda
- 175 g of butter at room temperature
- 3/4 cup of sugar
- 1/4 cup of brown sugar
- 1 tsp of salt
- 1 tsp of vanilla powder
- 3 eggs
- 2 cups of chocolate chips (I use the dark chocolate but use the one you enjoy the most eating)
- Preheat the oven at 170 C
- Whisk together the Flour + Baking Soda
- Mix together the white sugar + Brown sugar + Butter
- Reduce the speed and add the salt + Vanilla + eggs and mix
- Add the flour mixture and mix
- Add the chocolate chips
- On a baking sheet lined with parchment paper or butter drop small balls of dough apart from each other (Please keep in mind the dough will flatten itself so make sure the cookies or far from each other)
- Bake for 10 to 12 minutes or until the cakeys are golden around the edges
- Serve at room temperature for a relaxed afternoon coffee with friends and enjoy your cookies with a cake-like texture.
Just a small note, in the picture you see above the little chocolate cakes are the ones posted a while ago, you can see the recipe by clicking here.
