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.

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

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.

Don't fear the Wild Yeasty Beasties, they really do most of the work!

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.

Sure, as long as you preheat the grill, and oil the grates, it shouldn't stick at all. You cook one side until it's lightly brown, then flip it and put your toppings on.

Oh man, we barely broke into the 70s today, and I did the classic New England thing of wearing shorts, and a sweat shirt.

Not sure if this really counts as baking, but I made pizza on the grill for dinner. It came out really good, with roasted tomatoes, roasted red peppers and just a sprinkle of parmesan cheese.

It feels like I haven't baked anything in a long time, but looking back, it hasn't really been that long. Anyway, I made a pan of focaccia, which I will use the corners as bread for turkey burgers tonight. I used rosemary from my plant, and it is really, really strong, very sappy, so I went easy with the amount I put on top, don't want it to be the rosemary apocalypse.

I made crackers for the first time this morning, I used the potato, dill, and onion crackers recipe from The King Arthur Flour Baking Companion. I don't know if it was because the dough had mashed potatoes in it (my potatoes were pretty dry) but the dough came out so soft and was really difficult to roll out. I was sure it couldn't be right even though I followed the directions. Theycame.out pretty good in the end, not as much dill flavor as I would have liked.

It worked! I cranked that sucker up high, used my big rectangle baking stone, and they puffed! The husband really liked the smoky flavor they got from being cooked over a fire.

I'm attempting to make pita bread again, on the grill. I'm hoping the fact that I can get the grill hotter than my oven will make them puff up.

It did occur to me after I ground up the flax seeds that I could have just found a recipe without eggs. But my friend really enjoyed the cinnamon rolls, so I was happy.

What are you baking these days? Sumer is icumen in, June 2015 edition! [Old]

I made cinnamon buns for a friend that can't eat eggs with a flaxseed and water substitute. I'm waiting anxiously to hear how she liked them.
