Ramekin – my favorite baking dish

Sometimes it’s the nicest thing to serve desert in serving sizes straight from the oven, or at least I think so. I love my set of 8 oz ramekins just for that reason. I never used these before I married Larry because I came from a family of 9 and was used to baking cakes in 9×13 pans for one meal. (Yea I had lots of brothers.) but now that it’s just him and me and two kids to feed a 9×13 cake lasts us weeks. Well it gets thrown out before then… I’ve been experimenting and adjusting favorite recipes to make 2-4 deserts just for us and it’s been so much fun. I takes just a fraction of the baking time and maybe 5 minutes to stir the ingredients together so you can make these at 10 at night when you decide hey I’m so hungry!
Here’s a mini apple crisp recipe,
•1 large apple
• 2 tsp. sugar per ramekin
• 1 tsp flour per ramekin
Butter the inside of ramekin. Slice half apple into each sprinkle over sugar and flour. Bump them on the palm of your hand to shake down. Now sprinkle on this crumb mixture.
• 1/4 cup rolled oats
• 1 tsp brown sugar
• 1 tsp butter
Crumble together and decide over two deserts bake at 350 degrees till bubbly about 15 minutes

Cover dish tightly with foil and bake for one hour or until bubbly hot through out.

Chocolate Peanut Butter Dessert


This is a very yummy recipe, yet is simple. If you like chocolate pie you will love this.

Make a Crust:
2 cups of flour
1 cup butter or margarine
4 Tbles sugar
1 scant tsp. salt

Pat this into a 9×13 baking dish and bake at 325 degrees for 25-30 minutes or until it turns a golden brown.

Next in a mixing bowl cut 2/3 cup smooth peanut butter and into 2 cups powdered sugar. Set this aside until the crust and pudding mixture has cooled.

Make Pudding:
6 cups milk
4 eggs beaten well
1 1/2 cups sugar
1/4 cup cocoa powder
1 tsp salt
1/4 cup flour

Mix 2 cups of the 6 cups of milk in a sauce pan. Whisk together very well. Add other 4 cups of milk. Mix constantly on medium heat until mixture boils. Reduce heat and continue mixing for 2 minutes until well thickened. Remove from heat and allow to cool stirring every few minutes to release heat and to prevent a skin from forming across the top of your pudding.

After the crust has cooled spread the peanut butter mixture onto the top of you crust and then pour pudding over the crumbles of sweet peanut butter.

Cover with plastic wrap and refrigerate it 4 hours before serving.

My grandmother always served this covered with whipped cream but tonight I served it with out. Instead I sliced a banana and spread it across the top of the pudding.
