Malted chocolate tarts

I baked about a week ago now and had some problems with my laptop and didn’t want to blog on my phone and now here we are. Things are fixed and I can finally write about a thing I baked. I know. You’re just dying to read about it. First of all, I need to…

Rye and spelt rolls

Another day, another bake. Or like another week. Or another several weeks. When did I bake last? I honestly don’t remember. Tonight I decided to tackle a bread. I mean not literally. That would be a bizarre visit to the bakery section of my local grocery store. I may not be allowed back to my…

Golden carrot traybake

I’m writing this quite some time after having done the bake. Probably about a week later, if I’m honest. So some of the details may be a little, you know, not there. I do love a carrot cake so I was excited to try this one, especially because the icing isn’t cream cheese. It’s mascarpone….

Salmon coulibiac

Hello. In case you were worried, I’m still alive, though, admittedly, baking a little less. There was a trip and then there was some laziness and then there were some scheduling issues but tonight there’s salmon coulibiac. A phrase that I still don’t fully understand nor can I fully pronounce. If you’re a fan of…

Hazelnut and summer berry roulade

Sounds fancy, doesn’t it? It looks pretty fancy, too. It’s been a while since I’ve done a bake-and-blog. To be honest, I feel a little uninspired. I feel like I’ve been doing this for years and I still have 37 recipes left, after this one. Why did I pick such a big book of Great…

Mary’s Dobos torte

Another day, another baking opportunity. Or so I thought. I’m in the cakes section of this bakebook and I thought I’d tackle a scary one. The Dobos torte. Whatever that is. It involves 12 layers of two different sizes of sponge creating two tiers, plus caramel decorations. (I later learned that Dobos torte is a…

Multigrain loaf

I know what you’re thinking. “Does this lady bake anymore?” Yes this lady does bake. However, she doesn’t exclusively bake from the bakebook. She also bakes for her friend’s wedding. Congratulations, friends! The bride requested an Earl Grey cake with vanilla buttercream and I am pleased to tell you it worked out! I mean I…

Chocolate chunk bars

Hello stranger. I suppose it’s been a little while, hasn’t it? To justify my lack of blog-related baking, I do feel the need to explain that last week I did a practice run of an Earl Grey cake with vanilla buttercream for my friend’s wedding. So I have been baking. I just haven’t been baking…

Marbled mocha cheesecake

If you’ve been keeping track like an avid fan (or a stalker), you’ll know that in my last round of one-recipe-per-category, I skipped puddings and desserts. So I needed to double-up. The last one I made was shared with two people, but I’ve had my eye on this cheesecake recipe for a while. Especially after…
