Baked Sunday Mornings: Chocolate Chip-Orange Panettone

Happy Holidays, friends! I hope you’re enjoying warm company, relaxy times, and lots of yummy treats this week. ūüôā The thing I love most about baking, besides cramming delicious foodstuffs in my cake hole (duhhh), is that it never ceases to amaze me. There is never an end to the learning and trying and tweaking […]

Baked Sunday Mornings: Lemon Lime Bars

Sometimes the simplest recipes feel like a triumph. Lemon curd is one of those basic baking things that I just do not have a good handle on; like, sometimes it comes out fine, and other times it more closely resembles lemon soup. So I always hold my breath when making fruit curd,¬†because I just never […]

Baked Sunday Mornings: Classic Diner-Style Chocolate Pie

Sometimes all you need is a slice of pie. I’m not even that much of a pie person. But sometimes it hits the spot like no other dessert. And sometimes maybe you even have it for dinner. I’m not saying I had pie for dinner this week, except that maybe I did, and I’m not […]

Baked Sunday Mornings: Peanut Butter Crispy Bars

I feel like I keep saying this… How have I not made these before?? I’ve been participating in¬†Baked Sunday Mornings for over 7 years and made the large majority of BAKED’s recipes from their four cookbooks– it’s hard to believe we’re in our last 6 months of baking through BAKED: New Frontiers in Baking… and […]

Baked Sunday Mornings: Red Hot Velvet Cake with Cinnamon Buttercream

I know. Red velvet is so over. Like, WAY over. But hear me out when I tell you that we don’t have to live this way. We can have red velvet in our lives *and* reserve the right to abstain from food trends du jour, I promise. See, red velvet started as a classic Southern […]

Baked Sunday Mornings: Marble Bundt Cake

Who else holds their breath every single time they unmold a Bundt cake? It doesn’t matter how many Bundts I make, how many years I’ve been baking, or which recipe I’m using; there’s always a sliver of terror in my chest when I flip over the pan, only to be relieved by the gentle¬†thud of […]

Baked Sunday Mornings: Milk Chocolate Malt Ball Cake

Layer cakes, I MISSED YOU. It has been almost a year since I’ve posted a layer cake. Not because I didn’t want to make layer cakes all the live-long day, but because I was nomadic for several months, then setting up my new apartment, then didn’t have anywhere to bring a whole layer cake for […]

Baked Sunday Mornings: Almond Green Tea Cupcakes

As I’ve started my hectic school year after more than a year off, I’m feeling very nostalgic this week for some of the lovely, more peaceful moments spent in Israel last Fall. While it was a tough time in some ways, very little in suburban USA holds a candle to a Tel Aviv sunset or […]

Baked Sunday Mornings: Peanut Butter & Jelly Bars

Let me introduce you to PB&J living its best life. I ate my first peanut butter and jelly sandwich at age… 27. Seriously. For reals. I didn’t grow up eating it because my family immigrated to the U.S. when I was four years old from Israel, and it was not (still not so much) something […]

Baked Sunday Mornings: Chocolate Stout Milkshake

Sometimes you just need to bring the boys to the yard. You know, for milkshakes and all. Although BAKED specializes in baked goods (obviously), their first cookbook from ten years ago,¬†BAKED: New Frontiers in¬†Baking,¬†contains a chapter on drinks, and I usually skip these when we have them on the Baked Sunday Mornings¬†schedule because I don’t […]
