Bake Sale Saturday

A friend mentioned she was having a fund-raising bake sale, and my ears perked up when I heard about it. "Bake? I like to bake", my brain thought. And this way I wouldn't be stuck with all the fruits of my labor to have to just eat all by myself.
First I made Ina Garten's cranberry scone recipe, except with chopped dried apricots. I've made these a couple of times before and they always turned out tender and perfect.
Then I spotted this quick bread mix I had in my cabinet for a while and thought of mini-loaves.
I also made some mini chocolate chip loaves based on a recipe I found at Hillbilly Housewife that I can't find now. Hers had cranberries in it instead of chocolate chips.
Lastly, I whipped up a batch of Black-bottomed cupcakes I had seen a recipe for a while back at JoyofBaking. Mine didn't turn out quite as lovely as hers, but the hubby thought they were super yummy.
Don't forget, one more day for the Country Bob's giveaway :)
