Last Saturday Catherine McCord from Weelicious teamed up with Krusteaz and hosted a virtual baking party online.  Perhaps you tuned it and even joined in on the baking?  Well I did!  Krusteaz sent me the below items to bake with and I had a lot of fun doing it and my family has been having a lot of fun eating what I baked!

First I started with Cornbread mini loaves…

which I forgot to snap a picture of once completed.  Well at least I thought I did take one but I am not sure what happened.  But they were delicious!  The box made 3 mini loaves and my kids and husband enjoyed them for breakfast this week.

Then I moved onto sugar cookies….  My family LOVES sugar cookies, well actually they like any kind of cookies, but sugar cookies seem to be a big favorite.  I’ve made them over and over again but this was the first time I used the Krusteaz mix.

The girls wanted them to be festive for the holiday so right before they were done, I pulled them out and added some sprinkles.  I wanted to make sure they stuck to the cookies and didn’t just roll off.  Once I sprinkled them on, I used my spatula to press them into the cookie a little bit.  And it worked great!

The cookies were so good and crunchy.  I may have left them in just a tad bit to long, but that didn’t stop my family from devouring them.

Then I moved onto the Crumb Cake!  I had originally planned on adding apples to this but my husband doesn’t like apples and asked me not to include them so he can have some too.  I’m really glad I did because he loves it!

I used a small rectangular pan – a brownie pan- and it was perfect.

It was super moist and the house smelled amazing.  These don’t really fit into my diet but I did taste it.  My youngest was in heaven and asked me to make it again before she even finished it!  This will be a regular in our house and it’s so easy to make.

This was the first time I used the Krusteaz baking mixes but it definitely won’t be the last.  This is one part of my job that I love – getting to try things that I may not have normally tried.

Are you baking for the holiday?  If you need a short cut grab some Krusteaz mixes to help you along the way.  And let me know what you make.
