Start Your Day Off Right With This Morning Glory Loaf
I can’t believe it’s been so long since my last post! So much has happened since then, the cliff notes version is I left my Marketing job to go work for another company I thought would be great. Turns out it wasn’t and I left there after only two months. I am just waiting to hear my start date from another place which I”m sure will be much better, it honestly can’t be worse than the last place. Working at that new place I didn’t have time to focus on my baking so I had to put it on hold, which was fine but I had started to gain momentum…
The Eggnog Loaf That Will Be A Holiday Hit
It wouldn’t be the holidays if there wasn’t an overabundance of eggnog. To be honest, I’m not a huge fan of eggnog, or mixing any alcohol with milk products, sounds like you are asking for a disaster. This recipe had quite a few iterations, I couldn’t seem to get the loaf part tasting anything like eggnog. It seemed to either taste like plain white cake or vanilla. I think it was about the fifth time I finally got it right! I find this cake tastes better the following day once the glaze has had time to soak into the loaf. It seems to really bring out the eggnog flavour in…
Easy Peanut Butter Marshmallow Bars That Will Make You Feel Like a Kid Again.
Love or hate them, everyone’s mom used to make these. They are peanut butter bars that have fruit-flavoured mini marshmallows in them. They made an appearance only once a year, usually around the holidays, and they seem to be very much like raisins, you either love them or hate them. I decided to add them to the Christmas menu this year, Kevin and I had the debate if people would actually order these or if they would just be added and only one person would order them. I am happy to say that they were a larger hit than either Kevin or I could have imagined! There was one afternoon…
This Apple Caramel Loaf Gives All The Fall Feels
This recipe came from a lot of trial and error. I had wanted to make a Salted Caramel Loaf and it just wasn’t working out, and not from lack of trying. This was about the 7th recipe that came from a lot of loaves either tasting like just vanilla cake, or the loaf flavours not complimenting each other well at all. This loaf has quite a few steps to it and I wouldn’t recommend making this your first loaf ever to make. I have tried to break this down into manageable steps, so hopefully, it all makes sense. I thought this loaf would be a bigger hit than it really…
Unbelievably Easy Peach Crumble
After eating our way through 2 pans of peach cobbler, we still had some peaches leftover that was well on their way to becoming overripe. I needed to make something with them instead of throwing them out, and I don’t think we could eat another cobbler. I came across this peach crumble recipe and couldn’t believe how simple it looked so I thought I would try it out. This will be the last of the peach recipes for a bit, I promise. I’m coming to the sad realization that summer is officially over and that we are well on our way to autumn. THE BEST PEACHES TO USE FOR BAKING…
Easy Peach Cobbler
I’m not sure how it’s September already. Seems like yesterday I was complaining about my sunburn and the 34°C heat. Now the Autumn colours are coming out and the temperatures are cooler, which means I have been baking a lot. Kevin and I made a trip to one of the local Farmers Market in Calgary that we hadn’t been to in a long time. There was so much great-looking produce, but with there only two of us we can’t stock up on too much or it will go bad before we can use it. We ended up buying more than we needed, as we usually do, like a case of…
My Favourite Banana Bread Recipe
There is something about this time of year when the weather is getting cooler that all I want to do is bake with cinnamon. I know this is a spice that you either love or hate but it has that warm cozy feeling to it that I want to use cinnamon in everything! Kevin and I were also discussing things that our grandparents used to do when baking, and we got on the topic of banana bread. Neither one of us ever remember opening up Grandma’s freezer to find twenty overripe bananas in there. It seems like this became a thing more recently, and I decided to see if there…
Colder Temperatures Calls For Earl Grey Loaves
This is one of my all-time favorite loaves! This to me is comfort food at its finest. This loaf is like putting on your favorite sweater when fall hits. It's like that old friend you haven't seen in a long time and forgot how much you missed them.
I’m Sorry, What Does That Mean?
I decided to break down what some of those instructions are and what the difference is between certain things, hopefully, this will help!
