Lovely Lemon Yogurt Cake

Wednesday, February 27, 2019
lemon cake

This week I was sent an advance copy of Odette William’s new book, Simple Cake. It is a beautiful book filled with all kinds of (wait for it) simple cakes, and after flipping through the pages I was immediately inspired to head to the kitchen and bake. I decided on this Lovely Lemon Cake with Nana’s Simple Glaze; we have been buried in piles and piles of snow…

Raised Mini Donuts

Tuesday, February 12, 2019
mini donuts

Mini Donuts! With all the options for fancy, over-the-top donuts, I often forget the simple pleasure of a tiny donut coated in sugar. In the past these small circles were enjoyed at some kind of amusement park or fair; a bag purchased on the way out after a long day of walking for miles and spending way too much money on food already. Now I can make them…

Yossy Arefi’s (from Apt 2B Baking Co.) new cookbook is out today, and I’d just like to begin by saying it’s so gorgeous. I’ve been a fan of Yossy’s work for quite some time and have been eagerly awaiting this release. The book focuses on all things fruit, and is filled with stunning photographs, unique flavor combinations, and recipes that work.  ‘The recipes in this book range from…

Masala-Spice Palmiers

masala spice palmiers

I always forget how delicious palmiers are until I make them – puff pastry, coated in sugar and spices and then baked until crisp and caramelized – what’s not to love? This version from Maggie Battista’s new cookbook, A New Way to Food, is made with Masala spice mix (a blend of cinnamon, clove, cardamom, coriander, black pepper, and fennel) and maple sugar. Other puff pastry desserts you…

cinnamon rolls

I’m posting the cinnamon roll recipe from my book here today, as many of you have been looking for it after the Pancake Princess declared it winner of her Cinnamon Roll Bake Off (yay!). I had the rolls in a different form here, but since the recipe was on several other sites and I had so many questions about where to find it and how to make them,…

  (Another holiday recipe from the archives! I make this every year, and wanted to share again in case you are looking for more Christmas treats. xx) ************************************************ Okay. So I’m posting about peppermint and chocolate again.  But it’s Christmas, and I have a lot of holiday baking to do. And this chocolate bark was so delicious that I assumed you would want to make it, too. For…

Cranberries and Cream Danish Braid

Christmas is just around the corner. I’ve been baking for weeks (mostly recipe testing for my next book, but also holiday baking!), and must say this Danish braid is one of my favorite things I’ve made this December. The tart cranberries paired with cream cheese, sweet icing, and flaky Danish dough is just about perfection. If cranberries aren’t your thing, you could fill the braid with your favorite…

St. Lucia Buns

This recipe for St. Lucia Buns was posted a few years ago originally, but it got buried in the archives and I thought I’d bring it up again for the Holidays. ****************************************** Each December, I find myself searching for the perfect holiday traditions. Not that there are any perfect ones, of course, but with two little ones in our family, I crave some routine and consistency each year.…
