What are you baking these days? August 2015

Now that I don't feel like I'm going to melt just sitting on the couch, I'm back to my bread baking, or st least dough preparing. I made dough for hamburger buns for dinner tomorrow, and I have pizza dough for laater in the week in the fridge.

No fair, my Stop & Shop never has sour cherries, only the sweet ones.

I froze half the dough in a log, so come get it whenever you want:-)

I made the basic toll house chocolate chip cookies, because I suddenly *needed* cookies like my mom used to make.

I turn the oven temp down from 375 to 325 half way through baking, the recipe from The Art of French Pastry says you can even turn it down to 300 if they're getting too dark too quickly.

Thanks! I'm really excited! I think most people consider palmiers cookies, they are crunchy and cookie-like.

I'm baking some palmiers I had in the freezer to bring into my new job, extra appropriate because I finally get to be a full time French translator.

I've had that problem with muffin recipes before too, says it makes 12 muffins, and with my normal muffin tin, I get 16.

The cake looks delicious, and such nice pictures too, I'm jealous of your photography skills.

I made lemon pound cake, because I really like lemon pound cake, and I'm celebrating really nailing a second interview for a job that would be a big step up and pay me more than I've ever made in my adult life. I know it's possible I won't the job, but I'm trying to stay positive, they really loved the writing sample I brought.

That sounds lovely

I love a cake that doesn't need decorating

Sure, it's a recipe from The Bread Bible by Rose Levy Beranbaum, Flaxseed Loaf,pg 295

What are you baking these days? Happy Canada/US national holidays edition, July, 2015 [OLD]!

Nothing special, nust my weekly loaf of flaxseed bread for work lunches. I have the urge to enter my state's apple pie baking contest next month, just to see how I do.

I don't think I've ever seen a square bundt cake pan before

Thanks! It was really good, but very rich, so we'll be eating small pieces for awhile.

I made the chocolate pavé from David Lebovitz's Ready for Dessert for Quatorze Juillet! Haven't cut into it yet though.

I use the recipe from The Bread Baker's Apprentice when I want just plain english muffins, and this adaptation of that recipe when I want to use up some sourdough starter http://chocolateandzucchini.com/recip...

I'm making english muffins for hamburger buns, the dough has a really nice buttermilk tang to it, although I cheated and added some vinegar to milk, so maybe I should say has a nice vinegary tang to it.

I love those cookies, so tasty!

My kind of streusel muffin

I picked the most humid day of the year so far to go on a baking binge, but here we are. I made multi grain sourdough with flax, sesame, and poppy seeds. I made Sesame sticks from Alice Medrich's Chewy, Crispy, Crunchy (I don't have the book in front of me, not sure which order the words go in) and I'm making individual red pepper and broccoli quiches for dinner, and the vegetables are straight from our garden!

I sprayed it pretty heavily with Baker's Joy, even so I had a moment of panic when I flipped it over, I thought it had stuck to the pan, but it came out nice and clean, just needed a thump of encouragement.

That's a lot of cherries. It reminds me of the peach trees at my parents house, where more than once my mom said, oh no! more peaches! By the time the fourth tree had ripened, we just let the wasps have them, plus that tree was really tall and the peaches were hard to pick.

Last year when I bought my spiffy bundt pan, I saved the recipe that was printed on the packaging, because it looked pretty good, and I finally got around to making it. Orange Jubilee cake. I wasn't crazy about the glaze, which is orange juice and orange marmalade, I'm sure it would have been better with home made marmalade.
