2021 Edition - What are you baking?

First run Fruit Tart with my new tart pan. It looks pretty. I will try to get a picture of a slice.

That's gorgeous, msmofet! I'm sure that you will get a lot of use out of that tart pan.

I baked my first loaf of 2021 bread today - a WW bread, with some oat bran and a few flax seeds. Started with a soaker and a biga the night before, and finished a little over 12 hours later.

Made a dozen French Madelines. Sooo good, especially with orange zest in the batter. Will make another batch with lemon zest, which he loves the flavor.

I was going to pick up a Madeleine pan when I was at BB&B last week, but the shelves were empty of everything! Next time...


I made two batches of scones: orange-chocolate chip (our favorite), and basic cream scones with dried cherry bits.

I made apple cider doughnuts, minus the butter-sugar coating this time, with my new mini Bundt cake pan. So cute!

Agreed, they're gorgeous. What did you season them with, besides saffron?

I made my first crostata - Strawberry.



It started out good.

A lot of liquid came out. Looks messy. I haven't cut it yet.

There is a lot of water in strawberries. Did you macerate them first?

When I make strawberry shortcake, I first mix the cut strawberries with sugar and let them sit for several hours to bring out the water. Then drain and use the strawberries. You can use the sweet strawberry water in baking.

Whole Wheat buttermilk biscuits that went under sausage gravy. Why are biscuits so delicious?
