2017 Edition - What are you baking?

Wow another new baking year.

I have a block of cream cheese left unused. I'm thinking it would make a wonderful frosting for a cake or cinnamon rolls.

What's baking at your house?

I made a pound cake that baked while I was prepping our dinner. We'll have fresh strawberries macerated with a tiny bit of triple sec and sugar to go over, and whipped cream on top.

My vote is for cinnamon rolls.

I'll have some pound cake, too!

I made marmalade for the first time the other day and DH said it would be great with English muffins. I've been meaning to make this recipe, so that was a good nudge I haven't cut into it yet, but it smelled great while it was baking. Baked it in my Pampered Chef stoneware loaf pan.

Here's the recipe I used: http://www.kingarthurflour.com/recip...g-bread-recipe

Beautiful GG. Did you make the marmalade in the instantpot?

My bread maker has a jam/jelly feature.

Thanks, msmofet. No, I made it in my Calphalon sauté pan. It needs to evaporate excess moisture as it cooks. At least, the recipe I used does. I wonder if there's a recipe for making jams and jellies in the IP. I'll have to look.

My bread machine is at least 15 years old, so doesn't have the cool modern features, but it works fine, so I can't really justify replacing it. Same with my dang Black & Decker food processor. It was a Christmas gift in 1989 and still works fine!

I've made gougères probably 4 or 5 times during the holiday season

YUM!

Also a few banana breads

One of my resolutions is to bake regular bread and cakes more often this year!

Gee, I have had this recipe in my file for ever so long. I have made it a few times. Time to bring it out of the dust bin and start making it again. It is one of the few bread products I like. Ever so "melt in your mouth" good.

Thanks for the reminder.
