Happy 4th of July to everyone who celebrates it! In honour of our friends from across the pond, we've put together a round-up of our favourite American recipes.
These salted caramel popcorn cupcakes are a sure crowd pleaser. Fun and easy to make. Pile the popcorn on top, in our opinion the messier, the better.
Whoopie pies, or moon pies, are a big thing Stateside. They originate in the South and are usually made with marshmallow and graham crackers, but we've changed up the recipe to include peanut butter because well, why not? You can fill yours with anything you'd like, go traditional or branch out with salted caramel, chocolate mint or cookies and cream.
The clue is in the name with these Boston Cream Doughnuts. A miniature version of the Boston cream pie, these doughnuts were designated as the official doughnut of Massachusetts in 2003.
We're beginning to sense a running theme here, but we just really like dessert ok? The Cronut is a croissant-doughnut hybrid, invented by chef Dominique Ansel at his New York-based bakery. It was a serious craze a few years back, when people stood in line for hours trying to get their hands on the freshly baked goods. The hype may have died down somewhat, but we're still big fans.
To celebrate the day that's in it, we couldn't not include a mint julep recipe. The mint julep originated in the 1800's when the silver cups were given as trophies to the winners of the Kentucky Derby. They are the perfect refreshing tipple to cool you down on a hot summer's day.
