Hello everyone! As you can see, this month I’m super late for my Daring Bakers post. The end of the semester has been keeping me busy, but I couldn’t miss this post because hello, cinnamon rolls! I looove cinnamon rolls but I had only made them twice so far, so I was super excited about this challenge.
So this month at the Daring Bakers we were asked to make beautiful bread. I had been hoping for a bread challenge, so imagine my excitement when I saw this gorgeous breads! There were two shape options, this one and another one, also round but with twisted ropes in the middle. I immediately loved the flower shape so I went with that one (well, at least I think it’s a flower so that’s what I’m calling it).
Hi guys! Welcome to the new Sabor Pastel :) As you can see the site has a brand new design. I’ve made the big move from Blogger to WordPress; it’s still a work in progress, but I’ve figured I’d start posting anyway, cause I don’t want to miss the holiday baking season! So today I bring you homemade eggnog.
Looks like I’m late for the Daring Bakers post again! This month we made a Dutch confection called gevulde speculaas (stuffed speculaas), which is a sort of cake/cookie filled with almond paste.
The fun thing about this challenge is that we were encouraged to make the spice mix and almond paste from scratch. I even ground the spices and almonds, and it was a great way to try out my new food processor ;D I’m gonna miss the squeezer and juice extractor from my previous processor, but the new one has a nifty coffee grinder which is great for spices.
