So, I made some golden cupcakes for John's birthday this Saturday (he turned 23 on the 23rd...so it was his GOLDEN birthday! Exciting!). He also requested the same cake that I had made my mom on her birthday, but since I got that recipe online I tried to find a suitable replacement in The Joy of Cooking...and I did! It was a white sponge cake made with coconut milk...and it was good on the first day...but 2 days later it was a little dry (though the flavor was still there). The frosting was the Hershey's Special Dark Chocolate Frosting...and that was a success. The cupcakes were cheating, boxed cake and frosting (although it was kinda Semi-Homemade with added coconut milk!).
So, I also made a bunch of BBQ Chicken Drumsticks tonight to have for the rest of the week. Here's the recipe!
1 med. can of tomato sauce
1/2 c. soy sauce
1/4 c. apple cider vinegar
1/2 c. light brown sugar
1/4 c. hot sauce
Dash each: chili powder, red pepper flakes, garlic powder, paprika
Pre-heat oven to 350 F.
Bring these ingredients to a boil, then leave on medium-low. Clean and dry the chicken drumsticks, placing in a large bowl. Cover drumsticks in the sauce and then place on a baking sheet in a single layer. Bake for 1 hour, turning and recovering in sauce every 10 minutes. Yum!
