Apple Streusel Muffins

Apple Streusel Muffins

I’m taking baking class at a cooking school here in LA and today the focus was on quick breads. We made scones, carrot cake and muffins. The class is very small and everyone gets to make everything on their own, an advantage that not all schools can offer. The Apple Streusel Muffins were my favorite of the day. The general reaction was something along the ... Read More »

Basic Banana Bread and a Banana Bread Fluffernutter

Sometimes banana bread isn’t satisfying enough on its own. I never ate fluffernutters when I was growing up, but that didn’t stop me from realising that marshmallow and peanut butter would be a great combination with the banana bread I baked this morning.

I have never made gingerbread before as I am a little intimidated by molasses. Don’t ... Read More »

I have decided that loaves are very difficult to take photos of and still have the bread look attractive. This was the best that I could do with limited resources (baking and photography, surprisingly, don’t always work out), but I am not doing justice to the beauty of this quick bread. I made this as a thank you/holiday gift for a professor friend of mine. ... Read More »

bills Coconut Bread

The first time I saw this recipe it was in a newspaper article. I wasn’t too familiar with Bill Granger at the time, but clipped out the recipe because it featured coconut – and I am a big coconut fan. It took me a while to get around to baking the bread. Once I had had it, there was no going back. The bread is ... Read More »
