Apple Spice Muffins with Walnut Streusel

Ready for a large batch of muffins? These muffins made me think of apple pie in a muffin form. I was really disappointed because I mailed these to my dad and they got there super late. He was able to have them, but I doubt they were any good by then, or at least, it would be hard for him to decide if he wants them again, you know? Oh well. Because the recipe made so many, we were able to keep a few. They were so good!

Strawberry Jammy Bars

I might have enjoyed these the most out of the people who shared them with me, but that’s ok. I enjoy oats in baked goods (even if I don’t enjoy them as oatmeal) and I know some people don’t. These bars can be made with lots of kinds of fruit, but at the time I made them, strawberries were amazing and perfect. You can even use jam if you want. I think next time I might try adding more fruit to see how it goes since there was a lot of dough in the dough to fruit ratio (for me).

Mixed-Bag Mondays: Mostly Fails

Here I am, not at home yet when I’m writing this, but getting excited to do cooking when I go back. I am probably remaking some recipes (like my lasagna!) but also some new ones. The risks of making new recipes are always high. Sometimes the recipes are just okay but sometimes they can turn out almost awful. Today I am sharing mostly fails…

Vegan Fluffy Chocolate Frosting

So here is the cake we had to celebrate 8 years of marriage. I ended up making a cake that everyone in the family could eat, and wow this chocolate frosting was amazing. I was disappointed in the store-bought chocolate frosting I used recently (since it doesn’t have dairy) so this is an easy recipe that has an amazing flavor. You don’t miss the dairy at all.

Rose Levy Beranbaum’s All-Occasion Downy Yellow Butter Cake

Today’s recipe is complete but if you want to see the final cake fully, you will need to stay tuned for Wednesday’s post. I’ve been leery of making random cake recipes since I normally prefer my books from Tessa Huff. But this time I decided to try a different baker’s recipe because this was from the originator of the reverse creaming method. If you haven’t tried the method before, you really should. It is easy and it makes a delicious fluffy cake that is still buttery and rich tasting.

Cinnamon Braided Brioche Bread

Are you tired of bread yet? I hope not. This is (maybe) the best bread I made with the brioche dough. We all loved it so much that I made it twice within a week. If you already have the dough ready, this is a super easy recipe. It’s a bit tricky to explain the braids, so look at the pictures, or also go back to my challah post where I did the same style of braids.

Tips-y Tuesdays: Non-dairy Ice Cream

Nothing too crazy here today. Just ice cream without cream. Now, this isn’t ice cream that will completely fool you into thinking it is normal ice cream. And I would still like to try other options in the future with coconut milk, but this was a great first attempt. The Fudgelet and Chiplet were both big fans.
