These were easy to make. Whipped them up in the morning and ate them straight out of the oven. Nice!

Hope is not a lottery ticket you can sit on the sofa and clutch, feeling lucky. It is an axe you break down doors with in an emergency. Hope should shove you out the door, because it will take everything you have to steer the future away from endless war, from the annihilation of the earth’s treasures and the grinding down of the poor and marginal… To hope is to give yourself to the future - and that commitment to the future is what makes the present inhabitable. — Rebecca Solnit, A Field Guide to Getting Lost (via bookmania)

This turned out kinda good. The cake was huge! but I liked the taste and the creaminess. To cut through the fussiness with the crust I prebaked it in the tin and then just poured the cream cheese mix over it and baked it again.

These were easier to make compared to the bagels we made the last time - owing to the fact that there was no boiling of the dough required.
I loved the sweetness of the onions with the bread.
I should have worked a little harder flattening and pricking the dough - perhaps then, the bialys would have looked a little more like the one in the picture.

I have always wanted to make a “Swiss roll” - you see them in the cake shop windows, these creations of rolled up cake - all nice and symmetrical and so inviting. So even though I have just come back from a couple of trips abroad and have just started a new job, I cleared out part of my weekend and got to work.
How did this turn out for me? The mousse turned out great and I really liked the addition of nuts in it - it gave it another dimension. The cake? Well, I baked a full sized one on my first attempt and it broke up on me when I tried maneuvering it around (Note: this is what happens when you don’t read the instructions properly). So the next day I attempted half the recipe for the cake portion. I followed the instructions to a “t” and got it all rolled up. “Yay!” for perseverance.
The end result? I found the cake a little too moist. I pulled the cake out from the oven when the sides started to shrink away from the jelly pan so am not sure whether I should have baked it longer…. With some time in the fridge when everything had hardened up, the cake was passable but not what I have seen in the cake shop windows.
