Gluten-Free Bread

Even a cursory glance at my things I’ve done list will show how much I love baking. Last year I managed to conjure up all sorts of magic out of my kitchen, from French patisserie classics to bread from around the world. It was time for a new challenge, and whilst I'm currently not baking… Continue reading Gluten-Free Bread

Fougasse

As you probably know, I tried many, many new things last year: some good, some bad, and some I didn't get quite right. There's a few that I'm happy to leave behind and accept I didn't get it right first time, but some eat away at me until I have to try them, again and… Continue reading Fougasse

Saffron Buns

I have had the best and busiest weekend creating in the kitchen. For the past four Sunday's I've been doing one of Bread Ahead bakery's Bakers Series courses which has been a fantastic way to regularly get bread making in the kitchen - my favourite thing to do. This week however I also took part… Continue reading Saffron Buns

Anzac Biscuits

This has been a busy week for new things, not only did I make my placemats with my new sewing machine, but I also made Tim Tams in an Intro to Australian Baking course by Bread Ahead. That wasn't enough though, I couldn't stop at just making the delicious chocolatey and crunchy Tim Tams biscuits,… Continue reading Anzac Biscuits

Tim Tams

I would definitely consider myself adventurous with food and love trying out the famous dishes and baked goods from countries all over the world. Last year I not only went to Japan, Korea, and the Middle-East with my kitchen adventures, but also Nigeria, Russia, and Finland. I like to think I'm culinary well-travelled, but one… Continue reading Tim Tams

Melon Pan

This week I got back to playing around with my favourite thing in the kitchen – bread. Nothing gives me more pleasure than getting my hands stuck into some dough and seeing what deliciousness will come out. I've made no end of bread loves over the past few years, but I like experimenting with different… Continue reading Melon Pan

Day 365 – Doughnuts

I've tried to schedule some of the big bakes for my last couple of new things. After croissants and pain au chocolat, the other thing I really wanted to try making this year was doughnuts. I like a doughnut now and again, but my husband loves them and I thought it would be a really… Continue reading Day 365 – Doughnuts

Day 306 – Borodinsky Bread

I've been excited about today for quite some time, as it meant I might finally be able to crack the sourdough game. I first made a woeful looking thing way back in May, and I've been periodically trying ever since to get a decent loaf. It's been so frustrating as I'm fairly good at making… Continue reading Day 306 – Borodinsky Bread

Day 288 – Welsh Cakes

This week has suddenly become a lot colder, and all at once am I thankful that I was only borrowing my friend's dog. She's now gone home so I get to stay in my nice warm bed in the mornings, instead of grumpily trudging out the door with an excited pup. The cold weather does… Continue reading Day 288 – Welsh Cakes

Day 254 – Chelsea Buns

Although I've not come to the end of my Puff Bakery course yet – I'm taking a little break for a few weeks until I have more time – I really miss creating the delicious bakes from it. Having the baking itch, I decided to turn to my other trusty sidekick from the past few… Continue reading Day 254 – Chelsea Buns
