Day 211 – Milk Bread

There is a lovely Japanese Patiserrie in Frankfurt called Iimori, and after tasting how heavenly soft their Shokupan was, I've been desperate to make it ever since. I've been patiently waiting for weeks to get to making it on Puff the Bakery pastry course I'm currently working through, and finally, my time has come. Milk… Continue reading Day 211 – Milk Bread

Day 203 – Made a sock toy

Although I don't do it as often as I'd like, one of my hobbies is amigurumi - crocheted animals. I love the meditative way my hands work the wool, and the pure satisfaction when it creates something good. After sewing a fabric tray, juggling balls, and a couple of face masks, I've really started to… Continue reading Day 203 – Made a sock toy

Day 163 – Made Gnocchi

It's probably clear from looking through my new things list that I love food. I love eating it, but I really love making it.

One of my brilliant friends, Gerry, is a food genius. She constantly makes the most amazing food (she was even on Bulgarian Masterchef!), but her speciality is desserts and cakes. A couple of weeks ago she'd made a cake and made a special socially distanced trip just so she could share some slices of it… Continue reading Day 130 – Plated dessert

Day 121 – Made Gingerbread

Today was a rainy public holiday here in Germany, so I wanted a nice easy new thing to do inside. I had a few options, but when my sister suggested we bake gingerbread men together over FaceTime with my nephew I knew that was the one to go with. Not exactly a seasonal bake, but… Continue reading Day 121 – Made Gingerbread

Day 110 – Made naan bread

I have made it no secret in this blog that I love making bread, or indeed just food and baking in general. There is something so pleasurable and satisfying about making your own bread, it's something I don't think I'll ever stop. In an effort to make my way through my cookbooks, and the food… Continue reading Day 110 – Made naan bread

Day 83 – Made chocolate orange cake

Every time I go back to the UK I return with a Terry's Chocolate Orange: that obviously won't be happening for a while, so I was left a bit stuck when a craving hit today. With nothing new planned, and a desire to comfort bake, I turned to my saviour Nigella's How To Be A… Continue reading Day 83 – Made chocolate orange cake
