Bites from other Blogs

  • Fans of the sweet Biscoff speculoos cookie spread will want to bookmark Have Cake Will Travel‘s Speculoos Baked Doughnuts. These light yeast donuts are made with the brown sugar cookie spread in the batter, along with ginger, cinnamon, nutmeg and white pepper for a gingerbread flavor. The donuts are baked, not fried, and they’re also made with whole grain flour. They’re topped off with a speculoos-flavored chocolate ganache that makes them seem very indulgent – so indulgent that you might not realize that these delicious donuts are also vegan!
  • The Cinnamon Raisin Peanut Butter Cookies that Peanut Butter Boy baked up recently sound like a delicious twist on a classic peanut butter cookie. What’s even better about them is that they are unusually fast and easy to make, and they’re completely gluten free. The cookies get most of their body from peanut butter and sugar, to which eggs are added to give the cookies some structure. They’re a little bit more tender than your average peanut butter cookie (I’ve made this type before) but at least as satisfying when you take a bite and find them melting in your mouth.
  • Jules Food‘s Rose Shortbread Cookies with White Chocolate are beautiful cookies that are a lovely treat to celebrate the spring with. The buttery shortbread cookies are flavored with vanilla and rose extracts, so that they have a soft and floral fragrance. Finely chopped edible rose petals add a finishing touch to the cookies by adding a few bits of color throughout the shortbread. White chocolate can be drizzled over the tops of the cookies or spread into a thin layer on the bottom of each piece.
  • The Ricotta Pound Cake with Blood Orange Filling from Creative Culinary is a lovely variation on a classic pound cake. It’s dense and tender, with the ricotta cheese contributing a lot of moisture to it. The cake is layered with blood orange curd, then topped off with a whipped cream mascarpone frosting and candied blood orange slices for a stunning presentation. This post is also full of high altitude baking advice and encouragement.
  • Grapefruit doesn’t make it in to cakes, pies and other baked goods as often as other citrus fruits do, even though they can add a great flavor to many dishes. Homesick Texan‘s Ruby Red Grapefruit Pecan Cake is a perfect example. The sweet-tart juice of the grapefruit adds a bright, zesty flavor to this sheet cake, which also contains cinnamon and a handful of pecans. The cake is topped with a grapefruit cream cheese frosting, to further highlight that ruby red grapefruit flavor. Like most citrus cakes, you’re going to want to use fresh grapefruit juice and zest for the best results in this recipe.
