Happy Birthday!

When we were thinking of ideas for my other grandmother and I to make, the first choice was chocolate eau claire. It was my great-grandmother's birthday, so we figured we could kill two birds with one stone and make both a dessert and an item for this blog. While we were waiting for the crust to bake, though, my grandmother asked if I would like to make strawberry muffins. It was an opportunity I couldn't turn down. So now here is a breakfast and dessert in one post!

Chocolate Eau Claire

Crust Ingredients:
1 cup water
1 cup flour
1/2 cup butter
4 eggs

Heat water and butter until boiling. Add flour and mix until it forms a ball. Add eggs one at a time and mix in the mixer until smooth. Place on a cookie sheet and bake for 45-50 minutes at 400 degrees. Let cool.

Filling Ingredients:
2 cups pudding
2 1/2 cups milk
8 ounces Cool Whip
1 teaspoon vanilla

Mix pudding and milk. Fold in Cool Whip and Vanilla.

Chocolate Ingredients:
2 squares dark unsweetened chocolate
2 tablespoons milk
2 tablespoons butter

Melt chocolate with butter. Add 1 1/4 cups powdered sugar and stir.

Strawberry Muffins


1 pound of strawberries sliced
3 1/2 cups flour
2 cups sugar
1 tablespoon cinnamon
1 teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon baking soda
1 1/4 cold corn oil
4 eggs beaten
1 cup pecans chopped
Preheat oven to 375 degrees. Combine flour, sugar, cinnamon, salt, and baking soda. Add oil. Add beaten eggs. Blend lightly. Add nuts, strawberries and blend until dry ingredients are moistened. Put in greased muffin cups 2/3 full. Bake 20-25 minutes.
