Baked to the Rescue: A Very Vanilla Celebration Cake

October 8, 2014 | By johannah | 0 Comments

  In my family we have a time-honored tradition: there has to be cake. However, when you make cake a part of your daily life, this ups the ante when there’s actually something to celebrate. No regular old cake will do. There must be layers. Frosting is mandatory, as is tasteful decoration. Of course, it […]

The Stripper Pole reimagined – for Cakes

September 10, 2014 | By matt | 0 Comments

We (myself/Renato) have many, many things we would like to tell you about our new bakery-in-progress, Baked Tribeca. First, it is nearly open (we are being purposely vague here with an exact date, because…well, because construction is a special kind of hell and we originally thought we would be open in July). Suffice it to […]

2nd Resolution: More Whole Grain Flours/Banana Choc Chip Cake

January 14, 2014 | By matt | 0 Comments

My second New Year’s Resolution is almost as simple as my first: incorporate more whole grain flours into my baking repertoire.  For years, I have used Kim Boyce’s Good to the Grain as my whole grain baking guidepost. I fell hopelessly in love with Kim’s recipe for spelt olive oil cake as well as her […]

Editing and Eating: Brown Sugar Chocolate Chip Cake with Chocolate Ganache

December 3, 2013 | By matt | 0 Comments

I hope everyone had a fantastic Thanksgiving/Black Friday/Cyber Monday. Hope you got to unplug (seems impossible these days) and enjoy friends and family and hokey holiday television specials. I had every intention of doing “nothing”, but unfortunately our book writing schedule (which is not coming out until Fall 2014) got in the way. I ended […]

Christmas beer – julebryg in Danish – is a Scandinavian tradition that dates back to the Vikings. J-dag, as the release day is called here, not so much. It was launched in 1990 by Tuborg […]

Report from Italy: Pear and Chestnut Cake Recipe

November 14, 2013 | By johannah | 0 Comments

After declaring an undying love for chestnuts in my last post, I couldn’t get the little nuggets of pure joy off my mind. During a trip to Italy last fall, I picked up a flyer for a chestnut festival in the small Piedmontese town of Cuneo. I had kept the flyer, thinking I might like […]
