Golden millefeuilles

Hello again. Since my last puff pastry endeavour, I still had half a half of puff pastry ready to be used. So last night I had the forethought to put it in the fridge in hopes of trying one of the scariest recipes in the book. I’ve seen bakers attempt this one and fail so…

Paul’s mini sausage plaits

Hello, my name is Amy and it has been 64 days since I’ve last baked-and-blogged, or as my friend would say, “boke” (his suggestion for the past tense of “bake”). In case you didn’t know, the pandemic is still going strong, and actually stronger now that we’re all navigating the second wave. Obviously that means…

Plum muffins

On June 30, I made Richard’s Black Forest chocolate fondants. And she never baked again. Just kidding. Kind of. I gave up sugar, again, mid-July and the last time I gave up sugar, I started this blog and would occasionally partake but dump the majority of my baking at a communal place in my workplace…

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…

Norman’s farthing biscuits

Before you ask, I don’t know who Norman is. Also I’d like to draw your attention to the “h” within the word “farthing.” Please don’t mistake these biscuits for something that they’re not. That would be a truly terrible name for a biscuit. I had measured out the dry ingredients for this particular bake probably…

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…

Mary’s double chocolate mousse entremets

Hello readers. I don’t know why but my life has been very busy lately, which means baking hasn’t been a frequent occurrence. But recently I was at my mom’s and decided we both needed some chocolate in our lives. And it was also the perfect excuse to bake something that’s difficult to share: like these…

Oat and honey flapjack cookies

Hello readers. You may wonder where on earth I’ve been. Or you may be like “Ugh, her again?” If the former, thank you for your concern. If the latter, just unfollow me. The simple answer is I’ve been pretty much where I’ve always been. The complicated answer is I moved, so my kitchen was packed…

Dundee whisky cake

It’s been a little while, but it’s also been five days since I did this bake and ten days since I meant to bake this cake. Not every bake in this bakebook has a little blurb explanation about the bake, but this one does. And I shall share it with you: Not as rich or…

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…
