Over the past couple of weeks I have been working on perfecting a cruffin recipe and I came up with a recipe and method that yielded delicious, flaky pastries!
A couple of months ago I saw a picture of a baklava cheesecake on Reddit and I’ve been wanting to make one ever since. I figured this was the perfect time to try it out!
Last week’s theme for the GBBO was the 1980’s. For the signature challenge, contestants had to bake quiche with their choice of fillings. For the technical challenge, they had to bake finger doughnuts filled with raspberry and custard. Maybe this is a British thing? I don’t think I’ve seen finger doughnuts before. They reminded me …
I wanted pumpkin muffins that were not dense and had a good spice flavour. After a few tries, I finally created my perfect pumpkin muffin recipe!
This year we skipped trick-or-treating and had a Halloween themed pumpkin layer cake instead.
For my Japanese week bake-along, I made steamed buns with an Indian meat filling. They weren’t pretty, but boy did they taste good!
I’ll write a more detailed post tomorrow, but I wanted to share a picture of this spiderweb cake with chocolate spiders that I made to celebrate today. The cake is pumpkin and the frosting is a Spiced Swiss meringue buttercream. More tomorrow!
I ended up making two tarts for the tart challenge of my Great British Bake-Off Bake-Along! This pomegranate tart was so pretty!
For the technical challenge in the chocolate week episode of The Great British Bake-Off, Paul challenged contestants to make a chocolate babka loaf. I’ve made a babka before and posted a recipe for Cinnamon Babka a few weeks ago, so it wouldn’t be a huge challenge for me, so I left this one to last.
For the celebration cake portion of my chocolate week bake-along, I made a coconut white chocolate cake filled with lime curd and surrounded by a white chocolate collar.
