May 2018 in Review

This month, I baked 9 things:

  1. Peanut butter cut-out cookies with chocolate ganache
  2. Pineapple upside-down cake!
  3. Roll-out chocolate chip cookies
  4. Challah bread
  5. Brownies
  6. Brioche
  7. Everything cookies
  8. Cinnamon swirl cream cheese banana bread
  9. Brioche

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!
