Does a Succubus Bake?

I love my husband. I love him dearly, but he is the BIGGEST baby when he’s sick. I am fairly certain this applies to most all men, and I don’t get it. Seriously, a cold requires a bubble to live in, soup that is spoon fed to you and perfectly warmed, and just a little bit sweet tea. I think he’s going to go huddle over a humidifier with his tea and soup in his bubble later. Really, it’s cute (almost.) I should take a picture or video and post it to YouTube.

I AM keeping him away from our food and our kids. Purely because I can only take care of one sick baby at a time. Three would irritate me a little, and I’d surely blame the cop, just for funsies. If I get sick and can’t go running, I turn into the succubus. Horns and all. Only, I bake. I don’t think the succubus bakes. Well, maybe she has to bake that can of whoopass.

I bake. I bake a lot. Especially right now. In my antiseptic tent, I baked batch 4 of my 30 batches before Christmas. I really need to get my lazy blogging as$ on making a page for these. I’ll get to it, I’ll get to it.

Yesterday, I asked which ones I should make, and JewYorican answered first (aka @elbloombito, if you don’t follow Bloombito, follow NOW!) therefore, CHOCOLATE crinkles it is!

Batch 4. Chocolate crinkles.

Funny story, when I was little, I used to call these “Chocolate Wrinkles” no one corrected me, as per usual. They prefer to laugh.

Chocolate Crinkles

  • 1 C cocoa (NOT dutch process!!)
  • 2 C sugar (I use superfine)
  • 1/2 canola oil
  • 4 eggs
  • 2 t vanilla
  • 2 C flour
  • 2 t baking powder
  • 1/2 tsp kosher salt
  • 1/2 cup confectioner’s sugar-for coating

Preheat oven to 350F Mix sifted cocoa, sugar, and oil together. Beat in eggs one at a time, stir in vanilla, sift in remaining dry ingredients (save for confectioner’s sugar). Chill dough for 30 minutes, use a one inch scoop and roll in confectioner’s sugar and bake 2″ apart.

  1. LOVE your references to the succubus :)
    Hope your hubby feels better soon!

  2. The sick man morphing into a baby is a crazy, crazy thing. My strong, capable man becomes a quiet sad blanket-clutching being. Requesting water in his ZOO CUP. I am not kidding, Cat. A ZOO CUP.

    Cat! it was great meeting you the other day. I ended up with no picture of you, which just isn’t right. Hope to see you around again!
