I am not sure why these light and easy cookies are called patty cake cookies but they are easy to make and very good.
The recipe calls for self-raising flour you can make it yourself. For each cup of all-purpose flour called for in the recipe, add 1 1/4 teaspoons of baking powder and 1/4 teaspoon of salt. So for this recipe you would add 2 1/2 teaspoons of baking powder and 1/2 teaspoon of salt. ONLY if you don’t have self raising flour.
- 2 cups self-raising flour
- 2/3 cup sugar
- 1/2 cup vegetable oil
- 3 eggs
- 3 tablespoons milk
- 1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
- 1 bar dark chocolate for melting
Preheat oven to 350ºF (180ºC). Line cookie sheet with baking paper.
Sift flour and sugar into large mixing bowl. Add oil, eggs, milk, and vanilla. Beat until smooth.
Spoon mixture onto baking paper to make patty cakes 2" in diameter. Bake in hot oven for 15 minutes until tops of patty cakes are golden.
Remove from oven and cool on a wire rack. While cookies are cooling, melt chocolate in microwave or stir over low heat in a saucepan. Spread melted chocolate over top of cooled patty cake cookies. Sprinkle with finely chopped nuts if you want.
Makes about one dozen cookies.
Enjoy these soft and fluffy patty cakes.
