GBBO – Iced Fingers

GBBO – Iced Fingers

Iced Fingers are one of those things on the Great British Bake Off that I have never heard of. They also sound very odd to me. Who puts icing on bread and then fills it with whipped cream? But Paul Hollywood likes it so why not. I naturally used Paul’s recipe over on BBC. First off I made the dough by combining the following in a bowl: 500g bread flour 50g sugar 40g unsalted butter 2 large eggs 14g yeast 2tsp salt 150ml warm milk 140ml water As I’ve mentioned…

GBBO – Focaccia

GBBO – Focaccia

Guys, I absolutely adore making bread. I used to be terrible at it – I never kneaded it enough, proving it felt like a mystery, things just never turned out correctly. Since watching 8 seasons of Bread Week though, I’ve kind of figured it out and kneading dough is my new favorite thing. So getting to this bread week challenge was exciting for me! BUT let me just say… I followed this recipe by Paul Hollywood. Paul, this recipe is the worst… the method I mean. I felt like I…

Whole Wheat Cinnamon Raisin English Muffins

Happy Wednesday everyone! I was going to post a delicious fall-y recipe this week, but it’s not ready yet. Instead you get this slightly fall-y recipe in celebration of the first day of fall tomorrow. I don’t know about you, but I plan to make my pumpkin chocolate chip cookies tomorrow, as per tradition. I’m very excited about it (I’m going to update the pictures tomorrow as well!). Today, thought, I’m excited to share this recipe for whole wheat cinnamon raisin english muffins. My dietitian keeps bugging me about eating…

Raspberry Chocolate Chip Bread

Raspberry Chocolate Chip Bread

I went down to Florida on for 4th of July weekend to visit my mom, and while I was there I baked. I baked blueberry bread then I made this raspberry chocolate chip bread. I love chocolate raspberry. Love it. It’s one of my favorite flavors in the world.  I love it more than I love chocolate banana and everyone knows how much I love chocolate banana. This chocolate raspberry bread is the perfect marriage of chocolate and raspberry. It’s super moist due to the brown sugar, and the raspberries bring…

Swirled Whole Wheat Brioche Rolls

Swirled Whole Wheat Brioche Rolls

Honestly, my favorite thing in the world to make now is brioche, ever since I made that raspberry jam swirled brioche a few months ago.I know it’s kind of time consuming but it’s just delicious. Delicious and I think watching the bread churn in the stand mixer for 30 minutes is kind of relaxing. Maybe that’s just me though. But this time I wanted to make this brioche SLIGHTLY healthier (it’s not actually healthy, it’s like 100% butter), so I made whole wheat brioche rolls. These little guys are so…

Lemon Blueberry Bread

Lemon Blueberry Bread

Berry season continues! Seriously, how great is berry season? Honestly, for the last couple years I haven’t been baking much in spring/berry season because I have spring time SAD (it’s a real thing! It’s not just winter), and I lose all motivation. But not this year. This year I’m a berry baking fiend. So I bring you this super easy Lemon Blueberry Bread in honor of blueberry season. One of the partners at my agency told me a story about how someone he’s related to worked as a blueberry picker….

Blackberry Bagels

Blackberry Bagels

So, Memphis has a lot of donut places, a lot of stand alone donut shops. Back in Michigan, we had that with bagel shops. There was one shop by us that my family basically kept in business, because we were there multiple times a week. When we all moved away it went out of business and now we’re all incredibly sad when we go back home. But I love bagels, so this week, I made some blackberry bagels. This is in honor of blackberry season. Seriously, our farmer’s market is…

Stuffed Beer Cheese Pretzel Bites

Stuffed Beer Cheese Pretzel Bites

Yesterday, everyone in the office brought in like, every left over sweet from memorial day parties. So after the 3rd “there’s a cake in the kitchen” email, I realized I needed to make something nice and savory for tea time today. I’ve been wanting to make these stuffed beer cheese pretzel bites for a while, because love love love pretzels. And really what’s better than a beer pretzel stuffed with beer cheese? Tasty actually made some of these recently. Of course they’re not beer pretzels, but they’re an easier, faster…

Raspberry Jam Brioche

Raspberry Jam Brioche

Happy Wednesday everyone! It’s getting warm out and I’m totally ready for berry season. So I bought a bunch of raspberries, made some jam and swirled it into a brioche – a raspberry jam brioche. This brioche is delicious – light, butter, with the sweet raspberry perfectly swirled throughout every bite – making it the perfect breakfast treat for everyone. Also just a heads up, I’ve updated my social links in the sidebar! Plus, I’ve made a cupcakefordinner instagram that’ll be full of process/baking failures/news of new recipes. I swear all…
