So, after I "served" Chocolate Crinkles during our 8th 52WoC Virtual Party, I received a couple of questions about how I make these yummy goodies. That's why I thought I'd share with you a recipe that's based on something that someone I know once gave to me a few years ago.
- 3 eggs
- 1 1/4 cups sugar
- 2 cups plain flour
- 1 tsp vanilla
- 1 tsp baking powder
- 1/2 cup vegetable oil
- 4.5 ounces cocoa/chocolate baking powder
- icing sugar (for coating)
Step 1: Beat eggs lightly in a bowl.
Step 2: Mix sugar, flour, vanilla, baking powder, vegetable oil, and baking powder together. Mix well with wooden spoon.
Step 3: Set aside the mixture for approximately 2 hours.
Step 4: Once the dough is ready, roll them in to ball shapes and flatten them with your hand. Each piece should be approximately the same size as that of a regular-sized cookie.
Step 5: Put some icing sugar on a surface. Cover each piece with the icing sugar.
Step 6: Put the chocolate crinkles on a lightly greased baking tray (and/or use a lightly greased baking paper).
Step 7: Bake in preheated oven (180'C) for 8 minutes. This is a very important last step! Be careful not to overbake as this can make your crinkles really hard.*
My first few attempts at making these chocolate crinkles were disastrous as I did not observe the baking time closely. So, it's really important to time it well.
All the best with it and let me know how it goes if you try this recipe!
