This month, I baked 9 things:
- Peanut butter cut-out cookies with chocolate ganache
- Pineapple upside-down cake!
- Roll-out chocolate chip cookies
- Challah bread
- Everything cookies
- Cinnamon swirl cream cheese banana bread
I think this may have been my most diverse month of baking yet: I made
- 3 types of cookie
- 2 types of bread
- 1 quickbread
- 1 cake!
None of these recipes were bad.
My favorite was easily the brioche, especially the second time I made it, and especially in roll form. Yum yum, I could eat an unreasonable number of these fresh out of the oven.
New things I tried this month:
- I made a skillet cake!
I think that was the only ~brand new~ thing I tried… most of the rest of the bakes were more of variations on different forms, such as the brioche as another variation on a fairly simple bread.
I progressed in basically every one of my resolutions this month! This was definitely more of a bread-focused month than a cake-focused, but technically I did bake one cake. I am also really proud of my re-bakes, which are helping me to learn a lot faster than simply trying new things all the time!
Next month: I’m going to keep my options open, as far as what I bake. I want to commit to writing up my baking posts sooner, because I’ve let that slide a lot the past month. It’s really helpful to do the write-up quickly, because I remember more of what worked and what didn’t. Onward!
