Oreo cheesecake inside a cake

The theme for this month’s Daring Bakers challenge was surprise cakes! You know, when you cut into a cake and it has something unexpected on the inside, whether it’s a zebra pattern, a heart shape or a whole pecan pie. The shapes and patterns cakes, a la Surprise-inside cakes, are gorgeous. But I had already made this gingerbread loaf, and also a zebra cake, albeit ages ago.

Spinach & Cheese + Beef Sourdough Gozleme

It’s time for another Sourdough Surprises challenge! This month, we were asked to make gozleme, which is a traditional Turkish dish. It’s made with a dough (which can be made with or without yest) which is rolled out thinly, spread with some filling, and folded, to make some sort of flat parcel. The most interesting part is that they are then cooked on a griddle, so they only take a few minutes!
