Delicous Spoonfuls is coming!

29 Nov

Have you heard about Delicious Spoonfuls?  My husband Robert Gottesman and I are pooling our knowledge and experience to start an ice cream bar and cafe that will be employing about 75/80% of its staff by the people that have Special Needs. We have the most experience with Down Syndrome (Do you know our son Adir Gottesman?) and ASD/Autism.

We have been doing research, planning our menu and budget and designing our dream kitchen for the cafe.  We need your help!

We are looking for fundraisers, event planners and anyone interested in being a part of Delicious Spoonfuls!Take a look at our basic website along with our GoFundMe page.  We are looking for a location in North Broward County, florida, near our current home in Boca Raton, Florida

While  we get our no-profit status set up and our new logo designed, help is still needed

Check out these sites and share the heck out of them to help get the word out!

My friend Mark Roseman (the Toby Center) paid a shiva call and brought along a bag full of frozen bananas since he knows how I like to bake.  I will be using a recipe from Better Homes and Gardens and substituting pecans for the walnuts.

1 1/2  cups all purpose flour

1/3  cup sugar

2 tsp baking powder

1/4 tsp salt

1 egg beaten

1/2 cup milk (or soy milk)

1/4 cup oil

3/4 cup chopped banana

1/2 cup chopped nuts

Preheat oven to 400 degrees f. Grease 12 muffin cups.  In a medium bowl combine flour , sugar, bkg powder and salt,  make a well in center of flour mixture and set aside.

In another bowl, combine egg, milk and oil. Add egg mixture all at once to flour mixture.  stir until just moistened, butter should be lumpy. Fold in diced bananas and chopped nuts

Spoon batter into prepared muffin cups, filling each abt 2/3 full.

Bake 18 to 20 minutes until golden and a wooden toothpick inserted in center comes out clean, Cool in muffin cups on a wire rack for 5 minutes.

Remove from muffin cups, serve warm.
