Your Kitchen Friends
Our guests often ask for recipes from the Latigo Ranch kitchen.  We plan to post a new recipe here regularly. 

Lisa searches for recipe ideas and often finds new recipes to try, and if we like them, Randy experiments to figure out how to make them work when preparing them for 30+ guests.  Sometimes what we end up with is quite different from the original  and other times we make little change.  

Since most of you don't live at 9,000 ft. above sea level like we do, we have adjusted the recipes for baked goods for low altitude.  If you do need to correct for higher altitudes, please feel free to email us for suggestions.

Enjoy your cooking, eating, and friendship around the table.

Wednesday, February 05, 2014

Chocolate Mug CakeServes 4

½ C all purpose flour (a gluten-free blend works fine)

¼ C sugar
¼ C baking cocoa
¼ C almond flour
¼ t salt
1 t baking powder (adjusted to sea level)       
1 t vanilla
3 T canola oil
1 egg                           
½ C milk                                 

½ C sugar
2 T cocoa
Pinch of salt    
1 C hot milk or water  or coffee

Stir the dry ingredients together well.  Whisk the liquids well and stir into dry.  Pour into 4 greased mugs.

Whisk together the dry ingredients for the topping, sprinkle on batter in mugs.  Pour ¼ C hot liquid on top of each mug and bake for 22 min at 350.  I needed to go an extra 8 minutes on one batch I baked.  Not sure why, but they were really jiggly at 25 min.
