Yet another wonderful recipe from the PostPunkKitchen blog. I present to you, the

Cherry Chocolate-Chunk Mini Loaves

Except, instead of making 8 mini loaves, I made one big loaf.
It tasted very yummy, but the texture is a bit off. I think I didn’t leave it in the oven for long enough, so it’s more a brownie-like consistency – which is fine. Makes no difference to me, really.

Ladies and Gentlemen,

I present to you: The PPK Pumpkin Pie. The PPKPP, so to speak.

I want to make it now. Same as these incredibly good-looking white choc-chip macadamia cookies, these marvelous pumpkin cupcakes, the chocolate pumpkin loaf and so many others. Vegan Mofo just brought all these amazing baked good recipes to the light, and I’d love to try them all out Speaking of which, I’ve also been eyeing these vegan gingerbread cookies.

Problem: who’s gonna eat all this stuff?

I certainly couldn’t shouldn’t eat that number of muffins, cupcakes and other sugary things every week. I have fed my housemates a lot, but I don’t want to have to force-feed them if it’s too much. I would love to just bake a ton and then donate it to bake sales all the time, but where to find out about bake sales? Food banks are also an option I guess, but I’d feel like I was acting naiive; bringing there fancy pies when maybe they just could have done better with some vegetables and fruit, or even the plain ingredients to bake something themselves.

Strange dilemma, I know. But still: What do you do with excess baked goods? Do you ever bake just for the heck of it, not for actually having the final product?

Now, don’t get me wrong here. Baking some juicy chocolate brownies and them just staring at them for their aesthetic worth is not my favourite thing to do. I love to actually try my creations, and eat yummy things (who doesn’t?). Still, I would love to find a use for them, other just for the joy of baking (and of course showing pictures on this blog).

Please help me out here. There must be someone out there in need of vegan pies.

Just to let you know, I am writing this post while still on a chocolate pudding pie – high. So please forgive for any indecencies. Blame the pie.

So anyway, it is my dear house mate Mieke’s birthday today and of course, this wonderful occasion calls for pie! After some consideration of my options and recent pie inspirations, I decided to try the simple, but delicious looking Old fashioned Chocolate Pudding Pie (click the link for the recipe!) from The PPK. After all, you can never really go wrong with Isa Chandra’s wonderful concoctions!

So I made it. And we ate it. All within less than 3 hours.

To make up for the horrible pictures (by the time I remembered to takes some, all but the last piece was gone. I guess we can call that a success though :)), here is a much prettier one from the original recipe:

The PPK – Old fashioned Chocolate Pudding Pie

This is what it’s meant to look like. Haha. I am fairly sure I should have stuck to the 3 hours chilling time that Isa suggested. However, if you make a pie at 10:30pm and happen to celebrate a birthday at 0am, this is what the result will look like. Oh well, who cares about the looks if it tastes good?!

Happy Wednesday everyone!
