The A-Z Challenge – B is for Baking – #atozchallenge

I have always enjoyed baking on a small scale, fairy cakes, tray bakes and the like, but recently I’ve become more adventurous. I’ve been watching a lot to cooking shows, including the Great British Bake Off and would love to be able to make those lovely things that they turn out. Just today I received The Little Paris Kitchen book by Rachel Khoo and there are some lovely bakes in there, including a chocolate fondant and lemon curd madeleines – yum!

I’m also expecting Lisa Faulkner’s book, Recipes from My Mother for My Daughter, and I’ve read that the bakes in there are pretty good too!

I think my next big bake will be a coffee and walnut cake, which I love as I love anything that tastes of coffee – the loss of coffee creams from the Roses box was a great, personal loss to me! Mary Berry has what seems like a straightforward recipe, so I may try that.

What’s your next bake, if anything?

    Well I will be baking tomorrow actually, fruit cakes for my parents 60th – hopefully they won’t see this ;o)

    Good luck with the coffee and walnut cake.

    Cool! I did b is for baking too! I have the first bake off book and it has become my go to guide for baking over the last year! My next bake will be the hot cross buns from it! I made them last year and they are delicious!

      Thanks for commenting – I think I should invest in the gbbo books next – they did some gorgeous stuff. I follow Ruth’s blog, The Pink Whsk so was going to have a go at her hot x buns.

      Mm, yum, I love hot cross buns! I’m not sure if I’m brave enough to attempt anything bread like though!

      I’ve resisted baking anything recently as I’m on a diet, but I did make some Irish coffee & chocolate chip muffins for my Mum for Mother’s Day.

      Now that lactose-free icecream is available I’m actually itching to try making a lactose-free Baked Alaska. It looks so inpressive, and I’ve never tried one.

  3. I wish I could bake more, but it’s just my hubby and I, and he’s not big on sweets. Fortunately, I have friends who love my baking. Unfortunately, they don’t live nearby so I have to mail stuff to them and that limits it by cost and what I can bake. =(
