Chewy Guinness Oatmeal Cookies


Have you ever tried making cookies with booze?  I did, as I had all the ingredients at hand and moreover I was dying to get rid of the Guinness in my fridge.   No regrets when I was greeted with 'tipsy', chewy and aromatic cookies!






Recipe for Guinness Oatmeal Cookies

    Ingredients
    • 1 can Guinness stout (320 ml)
    • 8 oz butter
    • 2 oz jaggery powder
    • 3 oz brown sugar
    • 3 oz caster sugar
    • 2 eggs
    • 4.1/2 oz plain flour
    • 4.1/2 oz wholemeal flour
    • 3/4  tsp baking powder
    • 3/4  tsp bicarbonate of soda
    • 1/8  tsp salt
    • 2 oz white choc chip
    • 2 oz choc chips
    • 4 oz rolled oats
    • 1  tsp vanilla
           Method
    1. Sift the plain flour with baking soda, bicarbonate of soda and salt.  Mix in the wholemeal flour thoroughly,  Set aside.
    2. On low heat, boil the Guinness and jaggery powder till it reduced to 1/2 cup, stirring occasionally.  Takes about 30 mins.  Remove from heat and allow to cool.
    3. Cream the butter, brown and caster sugar till light and creamy, add in eggs one at a time, mix well.
    4. Fold in the sifted flours till just combined.  Add in the vanilla.
    5. Add in the rolled oats, mix well, scrapping from the bottom and sides of the mixing bowl.
    6. Mix in both the choc chips till just combined.  (Dough is a bit wet).
    7. Cover the bowl with cling wrap and keep refrigerated for 4 hours or preferably overnight.  ( I kept it refrigerated overnight).
    8. Spoon about 2 Tbsp dough and place 3 inches apart on a parchment lined baking tray.
    9. Bake in a preheated oven @ 165 deg C for 18 to 20 mins. or till edges are set.  (Keep raw cookied dough in the fridge  while waiting to be baked).
    10. Let cookies cool on  baking sheet for 5 mins. before transferring them onto a wire rack to cool completely.
    11. Yield :  26 chewy cookies.
Note :  1.   Dough can be kept refrigerated for up to 3 dyas, covered or freezed for up to 1 month.
            2.  Cookies are  baked @ a lower temperature to keep the dough from spreading too quickly.

    1. Only 1 can of beer is used, Jessie. It does make a difference to the taste of the cookie.

    1. I'm not so sure, but if you want them to be chewy, don't overbake them. If they're thoroughly baked, then will become crunchy.

  12. Wah! Sounds great. What a tasty way to use up the guiness :)

Marble Butter Cake ~ 大理石牛油蛋糕

This is one of the most popular Butter Cake recipes among fellow bloggers and I've read many reviews about this cake.  Credit must be given to Mrs S K Ng for so generously sharing her recipe.   This cake is moist, fluffy, soft, not overly sweet and the texture is just right.  Must admit that this is the best butter cake that I've ever tasted.  I tweaked the recipe to make a Marble Butter Cake instead.

Bika Ambon Panggang ~ 印尼糕

Kuih Bika Ambon or Honeycomb cake is an Indonesian dessert and from the outset it looks quite challenging to attempt baking this cake in order to achieve a honeycomb pattern.   There are many recipes online and I also googled for Indonesian recipes and watched the video on youtube.  I was looking for a recipe that is not so complicating but straightforward and I managed to come across Whattocooktoday's blog and found her recipe.  I was very delighted when the cake turned out to be a success.  Thanks, Marvellina!   Bika Ambon Panggang  ~   印尼糕 ( adapted from  'here'  with adjustments)   Ingredients for : - Yeast mixture 2 tsp dry yeast 1 Tbsp plain flour 1 Tbsp sugar 2 Tbsp warm water Coconut Milk 350 ml coconut milk 160 gm sugar 1/2 tsp turmeric powder 10 kaffir lime leaves (tear to smaller pieces) 2 lemon grass, bruised for flavour Cake Batter 180 gm tapioca flour 1/4 tsp salt 5 large eggs   Method Mix the ingredients in the Yeast mixture and set aside to let it ferment.
