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…

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…

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…

Hot white chocolate sponge puddings

Another bake? So soon? And with so little convincing? Yes’m. ‘Twas a rainy, autumnal Sunday just one day ago when I felt my heart call out for soup and something chocolatey. I went to my mother’s house and informed her that I would be making a ginger, carrot, apple and butternut squash soup as well…

Blueberry and lemon bread pudding

Bread pudding. Is there anything more British? Probably, yeah. But it’s still quite British and, to someone who’s never had it before, quite confusing. You take stale bread and soak it in an eggy milky mixture and then cook it? Actually, sorry, I just described French toast. Bread pudding—is there anything more French? Now, in…

Flourless walnut torte

Puddings and desserts. Is this a pudding or a dessert? My understanding of what constitutes a “pudding” is still sketchy. I assume it’s more of a dessert. I’m actually confused why this isn’t in the cakes section, but, as you’ll read, I have a more pressing unanswered question with this particular bake. Since this is…

Chocolate volcanoes

Another bake? Already?! Yes, dear readers. I’m on a bit of a baking roll (except I’m not making rolls) since I just baked Friday and it’s only two days past and I’m doing another bake and this week I know I’ll be doing at least two more. Maybe it’s like how people nest to prepare…

Stuffed focaccia

It’s Friday and I have not baked at all this week. I heard about it at work. A dramatic “Did anyone bake?” was called out and I had to explain that I meant to brave a pudding but alas had no ramekins and alas the store didn’t have enough either. It was a double alas…
