Cinnamon Streusel Coffee Cake

This is almost a repost of something I did over at Slashfood this week, but the cake is very good and I wanted to share it here, too. This Cinnamon Struesel Coffee Cake is a Martha Stewart Living recipe that I adapted by changing the spicing slightly. It was originally meant to be a cardamom streusel cake, but I was not going to toast and ... Read More »

Perfect Fudgy Brownies

Too cakey, too dry, too dense, too wet, too greasy, too many nuts, not enough nuts. What is the perfect brownie? I sincerely thing that everyone has a different mindset when it comes to brownies. Some people like them to be like a moist, dense, chocolate cake, while others prefer them to be a sort of lightened fudge. There are some who won’t eat them ... Read More »

Apricot Ginger Oat Biscuits

I decided to name these biscuits, rather than cookies, because they are based on Anzac biscuits, the crunchy, oaty, eggless Aussie favorite. The biscuits are a favorite of mine, too, as I love anything that is full of oats. Niki has a good, standard recipe, full of oats and dessicated (shredded) coconut. The biscuits I made lack the coconut that is typical of Anzac biscuits ... Read More »

Steamed Buns with BBQ Filling

I love yum cha/dim sum (and have always heard the terms used fairly interchangeably). I love how the food arrives so fresh and piping hot at your tableside, where you can pick and cheese what you want to eat. My favorite is definately the steamed buns (bau) filled with barbeque pork . I have not had any sort of yum cha in some time and, ... Read More »

Albondigas Soup

Whenever I have leftover meatloaf, meatballs or just unused ground meat, I stick it in the freezer. Often, these leftovers end up chopped up in a tomato-meat sauce for pasta or in a sandwich. This time, however, they made it into a homemade version of a popular Mexican soup. Albondigas soup, also known simply as meatball soup, is practically a menu staple at most Mexican ... Read More »

Aebleskiver

Aebleskiver are a Danish delicacy, a type of small, round pancake or waffle, with somewhat crisp exteriors and very moist interiors. They usually have small slices of apple inside them, but they can also be filled with jam or left plain. The are best eaten with powdered sugar, in my opinion, but syrup and jam are popular, and they can be rolled in butter and ... Read More »

Lemonade

The Best of Blogs polls are open! Head over to vote for bakingsheet as the Best Cooking/Recipe Blog! Lemonade is a drink that I associate with summer and the record-setting 88F/31C weather we saw here in Los Angeles last week was enough to spark my taste for it. Not to mention the fact that my lemon tree is practically falling over under the weight of ... Read More »

Baked Custard

Custard is not really the most visually impressive of foods. It can be thick, thin, cooked on the stovetop or baked in the oven. A good custard will have a pale, yellowish or cream color and, if it is a baked custard, probably a slightly darker “skin” on top. Some people, like me, love it and some hate it. Creme brulee cleverly covers it up ... Read More »
