Ginger tuile sabayon baskets

I’ll start this post like I’ve started a lot of posts on this blog: It’s been a while. And I’ll be completely honest, I understand two of the four words in this recipe title. I think you can guess which two. (I hope you can guess which two.) It’s going to be a two-day bake…

Richard’s Black Forest chocolate fondants

It’s been about a month since I last baked for this blog. Everything slows down in times of COVID, it seems. The reason I chose this bake is because cherries are finally in season! I’ve been waiting to do this one justice until I could get delicious local cherries. Before I go into the details…

Espresso crème caramel

Hello super strangers. Congratulations on reaching “super” status. You’ve gone from friends to acquaintances to strangers to super strangers all in a matter of months. I’m impressed. Of course it has nothing to do with you (no offense) and everything to do with a certain pandemic you may have heard of. The last time I…

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…

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…

Sticky apple sponge pudding

What better way to follow up a pie-less meat pie than with some pudding? And by pudding I mean dessert. And by dessert I mean this pudding. I made it about half an hour after I finished eating the lamb, apricot and coriander stew because both my mom and I were craving something sweet. And…

Mary’s Neapolitan baked Alaska

‘Twas the weekend and I was visiting my mom’s and thought, This is the perfect opportunity to do a pudding. Not a North American pudding. A British pudding. A dessert. As previously discussed, puddings and desserts are trickier to bring to work so I decided to leave this section to smaller groups of friends and…

Ginger and pear pudding

Hello friends. Are you surprised to see another blog post so quickly? I know I am. I wasn’t expecting to do two posts this week, especially since I didn’t do any bakes last week. However, this week I also received a bakebook by Duchess Bake Shop, the book that I already decided would be my…

Little orange soufflé puds

I swear I used to be good at math. I may have said this before, but it’s true. I was, like, really good, you guys. If I had more discipline, I may have even gone into a STEM field, but alas, I’m lazy and really good at BSing my way through papers, so I went…

Bitter chocolate and stem ginger puds

“Puds.” Is that like an adorable pet name for “puddings”? I mean I assume so. It’s hard to know how to pronounce it. It’s like vase or scone or apricot. Puhds or poods? However you pronounce this term of endearment, I’ve decided to make them for my mom’s birthday since she loves both ginger and…
