At the start of 2016 we decided we would write down everything that we baked AND ATE at home.
Are you ready for this? 🙂 Continue reading
Made some hamburger buns back on the 15th. Turned out pretty good. Its a basic white bread dough recipe; mix into a dough, rest for 1 hour, form into balls onto pan, rest 30 mins, press a little bit flat, rise again until ready to bake.
For some time now we’ve been enjoying a pound cake type of cake made with yogurt. A while bake I thought of using the cake batter as a base for fruit cake.

After a long week of working, time for a treat. We mixed up two batches of deep fried bits; apple fritters and sour cream cake donuts. Both recipes can be easily found online. The sour cream cake donuts are delicious. The apple fritters are, well, different. They are really tasty but … spongy. Yes, I said spongy. Even after they have cooled, the large amount of shredded apple keeps the donut really moist and soft. I kept the lid off of the container all night and today I took them out of that open container and put them back on a cooling rack on the counter. Out in the open and not covered, in hopes that the donut would dry a little bit. Not so. I have to say its an odd texture, almost like eating a marshmallow.
