    [–] Chocolate Peanut Butter Lava Cake DougEECummings 22 points ago in GifRecipes

    Full recipe from TipHero


    Serves 4

    Prep Time: 10 minutes

    Total Time: 30 minutes


    • 6 ounces semi-sweet chocolate chips
    • ½ cup unsalted butter
    • ¼ cup all-purpose flour
    • ½ cup confectioners’ sugar, plus more for dusting
    • ⅛ teaspoon Kosher salt
    • 2 eggs
    • 2 egg yolks
    • 8 teaspoons creamy peanut butter
    • Cocoa powder


    1. Preheat the oven to 425 degrees Fahrenheit (218 degrees Celsius). Grease 4 6-ounce ramekins with butter and dust insides with cocoa powder. Gently tap the ramekins to remove any excess cocoa powder.
    2. Place the chocolate chips and butter in a medium bowl. Microwave on high in 10 second increments, stirring after each one, until melted and smooth. Set aside.
    3. In a small bowl, whisk together the flour, confectioners’ sugar and salt.
    4. In another small bowl, whisk together the eggs and egg yolks until just combined.
    5. Add the flour and egg mixtures to the bowl with the melted chocolate, and mix until no lumps remain. The batter will be slightly thick.
    6. Pour roughly half the batter evenly into the four prepared ramekins. Place 2 teaspoons of peanut butter into the center of each ramekin. Top evenly with the remaining batter.
    7. Place the ramekins on a baking sheet and bake for 13 to 14 minutes, until the edges appear to be solid and firm. The top should look slightly soft.
    8. Allow to cool slightly, then cover with an inverted plate and turn over. Remove ramekins with a towel or oven mitt. Dust with confectioners’ sugar and serve immediately.

    Fried Pickles

    Makes 12 fried pickle slices

    Prep Time: 15 minutes

    Total Time: 25 minutes


    • Oil, for frying
    • Sandwich sliced dill pickles, about 12 slices
    • 2 cups Panko breadcrumbs


    • 1 cup all-purpose flour
    • 1 teaspoon paprika
    • 1 teaspoon baking powder
    • ½ teaspoon black pepper
    • 1 teaspoon salt
    • ½ teaspoon dried dill (optional)
    • ¼ teaspoon baking soda
    • 1 cup buttermilk
    • 1 egg


    1. In a pot large enough for the pickle slices and fit for frying, preheat the frying oil to 350-to-370 degrees Fahrenheit (150-to-190 degrees Celsius.
    2. Place the pickle slices on paper towels or kitchen towels, and pat to dry.
    3. In a bowl, combine the all-purpose flour, paprika, baking powder, black pepper, salt, dried dill and baking soda, and stir to combine.
    4. In a small bowl, add the buttermilk and egg. Whisk until fully combined.
    5. Add the buttermilk-and-egg mixture to the mix of dry ingredients, and mix until smooth.
    6. Place about ½ cup of the panko breadcrumbs in a shallow dish. Reserve the rest of the breadcrumbs for adding later, as needed.
    7. Dip each pickle slice in the batter, and then gently toss each one in the breadcrumbs. Let the coated pickles sit in the breadcrumbs for a minute or so, as doing so will help them stick. Add more of the 2 cups of breadcrumbs as needed, working batches, as the breadcrumbs do not stick as well once they have batter on them.
    8. Working in small batches, fry the battered and coated pickles for 3 to 4 minutes, or until brown and crispy.
    9. Serve with ranch dressing or your choice of dipping sauce.

    [–] Cherry Clafoutis DougEECummings 342 points ago in GifRecipes

    Full recipe from TipHero

    Cherry Clafoutis

    Prep: 10 Mins | Total: 40 Mins

    Serves: 6-8 servings

    Difficulty: Easy


    • 3/4 Pound Cherries, pitted (about 2 cups)
    • 1 Tablespoon Unsalted Butter, softened
    • 3 each Eggs
    • 6 Tablespoons Granulated Sugar, divided
    • 2/3 Cup Milk
    • 1/2 teaspoon Kosher Salt
    • 1 teaspoon Vanilla Extract
    • 1/4 teaspoon Almond Extract (Optional)
    • 1/4 Cup Powdered Sugar (Optional)
    • 2/3 Cup All-purpose flour


    1. Pit the cherries: remove the stem, and place a cherry on the mouth of the bottle. Use a chopstick to press down through the top of the cherry and pop the pit out into the bottle.
    2. Preheat the oven to 350°F/175°C.
    3. Grease a 9­-inch pie pan with butter, then sprinkle it with one tablespoon of the sugar, turning the pan to coat the sides lightly with sugar, and shaking off the excess. Arrange the pitted cherries evenly in the buttered pie dish.
    4. In a blender, add eggs, the rest of the sugar, milk, salt, vanilla extract, and almond extract (if using). Blend on high speed until the batter is fully mixed and frothy, about 30 seconds to 1 minute. The batter will be very thin.
    5. Pour the batter into your prepared pan, and bake until the custard is firm and golden brown, about 30 to­ 35 minutes.
    6. Once baked, allow the clafoutis to cool slightly, and then dust it with the powdered sugar.

    Chef Tips:

    • Do not over-bake this dish. Baking it for too long could result in a rubbery clafoutis. As soon as the clafoutis is golden around the edges, puffed up, and just set, it is ready to come out of the oven.

    [–] Stove Top Mac & Cheese DougEECummings 688 points ago in GifRecipes

    Full recipe from TipHero

    One-Pot Mac & Cheese

    Makes 4 servings

    Prep Time: 5 minutes

    Total Time: 25 minutes


    • 4 Tablespoons butter
    • 3 Tablespoons flour
    • 2 cups milk (low-fat is OK)
    • ½ teaspoon smoked paprika
    • ½ teaspoon garlic powder
    • 1 teaspoon hot sauce (optional)
    • 1 teaspoon yellow mustard, or ½ teaspoon mustard powder
    • ground black pepper, to taste
    • salt, to taste
    • 2¼ cups water
    • ½ pound elbow macaroni, uncooked
    • 2 cups (½ pound) shredded cheddar cheese
    • ¾ cup (3 ounces) shredded mozzarella cheese


    1. Melt the butter in a large saucepan over medium heat. Add the flour and cook for 1 minute, stirring frequently, until the flour is lightly cooked.
    2. Whisk about half of the milk into the flour mixture (it will become a thick roux very quickly.) Add the remaining milk and whisk until it’s smooth.
    3. Add the smoked paprika, garlic powder, hot sauce (if using) and yellow mustard or mustard powder, pepper, and salt, and stir to combine.
    4. Add the elbow macaroni and stir occasionally until the mixture comes to a simmer. Cook the pasta at a simmer, stirring often, for 8-11 minutes or until the sauce thickens and the macaroni is just cooked (al dente). The sauce will still be somewhat thin at this stage.
    5. Turn off the heat and stir in the cheddar and mozzarella cheeses. The sauce will thicken considerably at this point. Taste and adjust the seasoning with salt and pepper to taste.

    Warriors please win and have a win streak so we can have "The Warriors are now XX-XX since Javale let Jim wear his gold chain" memes.

    It's like a player from both teams had a Freaky Friday moment with each other and somehow exchanged shooting abilities between the teams.

    [–] Cream-Cheese-Filled Banana Bread DougEECummings 24 points ago in GifRecipes

    Full recipe from TipHero

    Cream-Cheese-Filled Banana Bread

    Makes one 9×5-inch loaf

    Prep Time: 10 minutes

    Total Time: 90 minutes

    Banana Bread Ingredients:

    • 1 cup all-purpose flour
    • ½ teaspoon baking powder
    • ½ teaspoon baking soda
    • ¼ teaspoon salt
    • 1 cup mashed very ripe bananas (about 2 large bananas)
    • 1 large egg
    • ¼ cup granulated sugar
    • ½ cup light brown sugar, packed
    • ¼ cup cup sour cream
    • ¼ cup coconut oil, melted
    • 2 teaspoons vanilla extract

    Cream Cheese Filling Ingredients:

    • 1 large egg
    • 4 oz softened brick-style cream cheese
    • 2 tablespoons granulated sugar
    • 3 tablespoons all-purpose flour


    1. Preheat oven to 350°F/175°C. Spray one 9×5-inch loaf pan with floured cooking spray, or grease and flour the pan. Set aside.
    2. To make the banana bread batter: in a large bowl, combine flour, baking powder, baking soda, and salt. Stir to combine.
    3. In another large bowl, mash the bananas.
    4. Add the egg to the bananas and stir to incorporate.
    5. Add the brown and granulated sugars, coconut oil, sour cream, and vanilla extract to the banana mixture. Whisk to combine.
    6. Fold the banana mixture into the flour mixture with a hand mixer, spatula, or spoon until just combined. Do not overmix. Set aside

    7. To make the cream cheese filling​: in a large bowl, add the softened cream cheese, egg, granulated sugar, and flour, and use a hand mixer to combine.

    8. Fill the the prepared loaf pan with about 2/3 of the banana bread batter. Smooth the top lightly with a spatula, pushing it into the corners and sides as necessary. Set aside.

    9. Gently add the cream cheese filling to the pan in an even layer, leaving a border of about 1/8-inch of the banana batter showing around the filling.

    10. Top with the remaining banana bread batter, smoothing the top very lightly with a spatula so as not to disturb the cream cheese layer. Make sure to spread the batter so it reaches all corners of the pan.

    11. Bake for 30 minutes at 350°F/175°C. Decrease the oven temperature to 325°F/163°C and bake for another 15-20 minutes or until the top is domed and golden, and a toothpick inserted in the center comes out clean (or with a few moist crumbs, but no batter).

    Chef’s Tips:

    • If you don’t have coconut oil or aren’t a fan of the flavor (although no strong coconut flavor will be detectable in the finished recipe), you can sub in canola or vegetable oil.
    • Use greek yogurt as a lighter substitute for the sour cream.
