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 […]

A Danish Christmas Tradition and A Recipe for Stout Cake

In Denmark, the holiday season officially starts on the first Friday of November, when the annual Christmas beers are released. 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 […]

Super Simple Pumpkin Chocolate Chip Bundt Cake

October 22, 2013 | By matt | 0 Comments

It’s October. It’s Pumpkin chaos. There is no way around it. This is a good thing. I love to bake with pumpkin, and I also happen to have a mini obsession with pumpkin tortellini. My house is awash in squash décor, and I practically live for my annual pumpkin-picking trip. Ignore the pumpkin naysayers (I, […]

Late Summer Plum Tart

September 20, 2013 | By johannah | 0 Comments

How did this happen?! I left Copenhagen two weeks ago wearing shorts and a t-shirt and on my return had to pull out a down jacket for the morning bike ride to the office. During that same time, the market went from a veritable bounty of summer produce – mountains of tomatoes, peaches, green beans […]

A summer report from Italy: Lemon Ricotta Cake recipe

August 1, 2013 | By johannah | 0 Comments

A week ago I decided on a whim to go to Italy for a few days. After a trip to Piemonte last fall, I’ve been dreaming of a summertime return. Last year, my sister and her husband returned from their summer holiday in Piemonte – where his parents have a house – with crates of […]
