cardamom sugar buns

I’m back with more buns. This is a recipe (and post) I put up on my site years ago, and I thought I’d bring it back to life by baking the buns (yet again) in my favorite soufflé molds (if you don’t have these molds, never fear! You can also bake the buns in ramekins or muffin tins; directions below). The recipe is adapted from Tara O’Brady’s Sugar…

chocolate cardamom cake

Saturday, April 28, 2018

I posted  a piece of this cardamom cake on Instagram a few weeks ago and had a lot of people asking for the recipe, so here it finally is! One of my biggest failures as a blogger is just getting a post up – I love the baking part, and photography also, but for some reason when I sit down to edit photos and type up recipes, I…

cardamom pound cake

Friday, December 1, 2017

(This is another recipe lost in the archives I’m bringing back to life – it’s a great cake to make around the holidays. I’ve kept the original text.)

So it’s the carrot that is placed in my shopping cart, and then ends up…

I have named you queen. There are taller than you, taller. There are purer than you, purer. There are lovelier than you, lovelier. But you are the queen. -Pablo Neruda Perhaps pumpkin is more traditional and chocolate more sexy, perhaps pie is expected and tarts would turn heads. But somehow this bundt cake with root vegetables baked into tall towers; this cake with cream cheese hiding in swirls…

cardamom flatbread

Tuesday, July 10, 2012

My husband lays next to me, whispering, ‘I’d give all we have to make sure we are always connected: you and I, and us and them.’ I find his hand in the dark and do not let it go. This earthly Victory | does not have wings: | she wears bread on her shoulders instead. | Courageously she soars, | setting the world free, | like a baker…
