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.
I’m here with another Sourdough Surprises challenge, although this one is admittedly late. We were asked to make sourdough battered fried goodies. Sounds good right??
I thought the default onions would be neat, since I had never made onion rings before. But I also threw in some apples and oreos (yeah, oreos – more on that later).
Happy Pi day! I love pies, though I don’t make them as often as I’d like since they’re too big and full of calories for an everyday dessert. So any excuse to bake them is more than welcome!
