Bread 101

I never get tired hearing the history of bread. Every now and then I stumble across a new video simplifying this topic – Ace Bakery does a fantastic job. Enjoy!


Chocolate & Tim Burton

Cakes are always challenging to me, which I love to work on them so much. The creative process behind designing a cake is fun, exhausting, and totally worth your time. That is why this video is fun to watch over and over again… just think about all the time that went into this?!

Casual Baking: Vegan Toasted Coconut Bread

I am always trying out new banana bread recipes, it is a breakfast classic. Out of all the recipes I have tried, I fell in love Dassana Amit’s recipe on Veg Recipes of India. This blog is an amazing place for vegetarian dishes that will satisfy any craving and I highly recommend you support them. After eating a few loaves, I decided to try my own take on Dassana Amit’s marvelous recipe.

coconut

  • 3 ripe bananas (the darker the better)
  • 2 cups whole wheat flour
  • 2/3 cup coconut oil (grapeseed oil if you want a less sweet loaf)
  • 3/4 cup sugar
  • 2 tsp vanilla extract
  • 1/2 cup chopped almonds
  • 1 1/2 tsp baking powder
  • 1/2 tsp baking soda
  • a pinch of salt
  • a handful of coconut shreds for topping

 

Local

As soon as the sun rises on Monday morning, I am smiling at the thought of visiting the farmers market. There is something special about connecting with the people that grow the food you are about to purchase. It is a practice I love to stress when I am picking up ingredients baking; produce and grains grow in New York. If you are around a market, stop by and treat yourself to a conversion and fresh produce.
