A Perfect Baking Day

It is overcast and we've had one bout of rain with more to come today. Its a perfect day to bake. When the family returns home the house will smell like all things warm and wonderful.

I'm trying to decide what exactly to bake. I've got lots of piddly chores to do so baking something that would break up the monotony might be just the ticket. I'm thinking perhaps cinnamon buns or some other sweet bun that requires a rise would do the job. Maybe a cake? Something with a few steps to complete it?

The last few days have been the first of the apple season. We've had an apple pie and an apple crisp as well as 2 batches of apple sauce. So definitely nothing apple flavored.

Something rhubarb perhaps? I could stew the rhubarb first and then make a rhubarb cake or loaf?

What would you bake on a Perfect Baking Day?

A perfect baking day...

First of all, all baking results have to be perfect. No mistakes, over cooking, over mixing, incorrect measures and no interruptions!

After that, it's easy. Since we only bake things we love to eat, it doesn't matter what you bake!

SO made pakalva over the weekend so I'm going to focus on bagels (I have the flakes).

I vote for gingerbread cake with warm lemon sauce or a cottage pudding with nutmeg sauce.

Whenever I mention cottage pudding with nutmeg sauce people look at me like I have grown a third eye! I'm glad to see I'm not the only one who makes it! It is one of my favorites. It is good for a dessert, then the next day for breakfast!

Bagels are done and cooling. They came out looking good. Breakfast for Tuesday is all set.

Good old Filus comes through! Lemon sauce recipe. I might make both the cake and the buns.

Cake is happening ASAP! Buns maybe in a bit. Juggling the laundry too!

I just had a vision of you tossing laundry in the air and catching it. How many pieces can you juggle at once? At least it doesn't break when you drop it. Remember to do this before you wash the clothes. Okay, juggle the socks after they've been washed.
