Peanut Butter Bread/Cake

I take time out of my regularly scheduled crochet posts to make a special post about a recipe that I tried this morning and absolutely love. Recently, I have been diagnosed with gestational diabetes which has curbed one of the biggest loves of my life. Cutting down on carbs is so hard for me.

But at 4am today, I was shown a recipe that I absolutely had to try and being the way I am, I tweaked it slightly.


Peanut Butter Bread by Headbangers Kitchen
This is where the original recipe is. I won't be including ingredient amounts and such here because I would prefer everyone to go back to the original recipe where the credit is due.

But the tweaks I'm making are here. And not everything has a photo since I was by myself at 5am and time is of the essence when you're working in the final steps.

I started the recipe by separating my eggs. Egg white went straight into the mixing bowl and egg yolks went into a separate small bowl for later. I didn't measure out the peanut butter at this stage as I am lazy and want to save on washing.


So first thing's first I whipped up my egg whites until peaks formed. Admittedly I did also add a tablespoon of sugar here but this is up to yourself. Then I tipped them out gently into another bowl to use later. 


I did however, measure out the vinegar and bicarb ready to go for a later step.
 Then using the mixing bowl I had used for the egg whites, I measured out the peanut butter, added a small pinch of salt and the egg yolks.

The peanut butter was whipped up for about 6 minutes. At this stage, if you want the mix to be even smoother, you can also add a bit of melted butter or oil. But I didn't do that at this stage and left it as is. The next part is the tricky party and it helps if you have any experience making chiffon cake/angelfood cake/macarons and red velvet cakes.

Gently combine the peanut butter mix with the egg whites. To do this, I added the peanut butter to one side of the bowl (or you can use a completely separate bowl if you're not a stingy dishwasher like me) and then only combine the egg whites into the peanut butter 1/4 amount at a time. This will slacken down the peanut butter. I used up about 1/2 to 1/3 of the egg white mix before I started to gently combine everything together. 

Once everything is mostly combined (doesn't have to be completely perfect at this stage), mix the vinegar and bicarb together and it will fizz nicely. Quickly mix this into the egg white/peanut butter mix.

This will complete the "almost combined) into a completed mix. I baked mine for about 25 minutes but I also don't have a small loaf pan. I'm a baker so all my loaf bans make giant full sized loaves and I'm guessing the original recipe used a small, bake at home, loaf pan. The loaf about 1.5 to doubled in size during baking. Aaaand comes out more like cake than bread because of the tweaks I made.

Clefairy (Pokedoll style)

Hello! I come with another pattern that isn't being added to the pokedex library as this one is done in pokedoll (cute and round) style rather than based on the original dex image. But this one is really quick and easy to work up! I made this with DK weight yarn and my usual 4.00 size hook. The plush works up to be 18cm (7 inches) tall and 21cm (about 8 1/2 inches) arm span! Body Round 1: CH2, SCx6 in the 2nd stitch from the hook (6) Round 2: 2SCx6 (12) Round 3: [2SC, SC]x6 (18) Round 4: [2SC, SCx2]x6 (24) Round 5: [2SC, SCx3]x6 (30) Round 6: [2SC, SCx4]x6 (36) Round 7: [2SC, SCx5]x6 (42) Round 8: [2SC, SCx6]x6 (48) Round 9: [2SC, SCx7]x6 (54) Round 10: [2SC, SCx8]x6 (60) Round 11: [2SC, SCx9]x6 (66) Round 12: [2SC, SCx10]x6 (72) Round 13 - 26: SCx72 (72, 14 rounds) Round 27: [SC2tog, SCx10]x6 (66) Round 28: [SC2tog, SCx9]x6 (60) Round 29: [SC2tog, SCx8]x6 (54) Round 30: [SC2tog, SCx7]x6 (48) Round 31: [SC2tog, SCx6]x6 (42) Ro

#778 Mimikyu

Hello all!! I've been mysteriously quiet lately but I've been very productive. Just lazy when it comes to actually resizing my images and putting these patterns up. I have a backlog of actual patterns to put up so I'll work through them slowly. I figure I would come back with one that a lot of people have been happy with. This Mimikyu is 30.5cm (12 inches) tall from base to the tip of its crooked ear. Features are needlefelted on and everything is sewn on and attached so there are no hard parts.  Head/Body Round 1: CH2, SCx6 in the 2nd stitch from the hook (6) Round 2: 2SCx6 (12) Round 3: [2SC, SC]x6 (18) Round 4: [2SC, SCx2]x6 (24) Round 5: [2SC, SCx3]x6 (30) Round 6: [2SC, SCx4]x6 (36) Round 7: [2SC, SCx5]x6 (42) Round 8: [2SC, SCx6]x6 (48) Round 9: [2SC, SCx7]x6 (54) Round 10: [2SC, SCx8]x6 (60) Round 11 - 20: SCx60 (60, 10 rounds) Round 21: [SC2tog, SCx8]x6 (54) Round 22: [SC2tog, SCx7]x6 (48) Round 23: [SC2tog, SCx6]x6 (42)  

#725 Litten

Hey all! Sorry for being slow! I have had quite a few patterns that I've been sitting on while I worked on new projects so I'm slowly going to post them all over the following weeks starting with this black fire cat! Litten length nose to tail end: 30.5cm (12 inches) and height going from tip of the ear down to feet: 26cm (10 inches) tall. Made from DK weight yarn and a little bit of felting materials for the eyes. Or you can just felt down yarn or even just embroider on the eyes. I also used the felting tools to flatten down the forehead markings and the eyes. Head Round 1: CH2, SCx6 in the 2nd stitch from the hook (6) Round 2: 2SCx6 (12) Round 3: [2SC, SC]x6 (18) Round 4: [2SC, SCx2]x6 (24) Round 5: [2SC, SCx3]x6 (30) Round 6: [2SC, SCx4]x6 (36) Round 7: [2SC, SCx5]x6 (42) Round 8: [2SC, SCx6]x6 (48) Round 9: [2SC, SCx7]x6 (54) Round 10: [2SC, SCx8]x6 (60) Round 11 - 16: Scx60 (60, 6 rounds) Round 17 - 18: SCx10, change to red/orange
