TWD: Mocha Brownie Cake

image

A reasonably quick bake but not my favourite.

Not exactly sure where this went wrong - the cake was not very moist (as a brownie would be). Also, it did not seem to rise very much and I could not cut it into 3 layers so it ended up as 2.

A really easy to make but totally delicious fruit and nut bar (from “Chewy Gooey Crispy Melt in Your Mouth Cookies” by Alice Medrich).  Mine had - walnuts, cranberries and apricots. Yummy!

TWD: Buttermilk Scones

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)

TWD: Chocolate Mascarpone Cheesecake

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.

TWD: Onion Biayls

image

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.
