Claire’s miniature chocolate and cherry cakes

In case you’re curious, here’s a breakdown of how many recipes I have left: Biscuits and traybakes: 3 Bread: 4 Cake: 4 Sweet pastry and patisserie: 2 Savoury: 3 Puddings and desserts: 3 Throughout this baking adventure, I’ve been trying to keep them more or less even so I’m not left with, say, all savoury…

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…

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…

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…

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…

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…
