October 29, 2014 | By matt | 0 Comments

Pure and Simple: Great cookbooks are made possible by great recipe testers (and a slew of other talented beings).  For our latest cookbook, Baked Occasions, we were lucky to work with some of the hardest working butter/flour/chocolate/sugar addicts across the country. They tested many recipes, many multiple of times, and they were not timid (thank you…I […]

Halloween Pop Tarts : Free Pre-Order Recipe

September 18, 2014 | By matt | 0 Comments

It’s almost fall. Leaf peeping, pumpkin picking, hot apple cider-drinking fall. This is a very good thing. Because as much as we love summer bike rides and pools and BBQs and beaches, we really REALLY love fall. Put away the shorts. Unearth the stretchy pants. Fall baking (and eating) approaches. We have much to celebrate […]

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).

Hope everyone is enjoying this last bit of summer – this perfect NYC summer. Drink it in and drink it up. Fall (and a new Baked) await you. We are getting a bunch of questions about the new bakery – probably because a few fall previews are starting to publish. So, if I may, just […]

I really really like Nutella. Always have. Always will. It is part of my baking repertoire (Nutella scones anyone?) and it is the one hi/low foodstuff that is a constant in my pantry. However, over the years, I have been cheating on Nutella – experimenting with all sorts of homemade versions (including this one featured […]

Midnight Baking: Banana Bundt Cake with Chocolate Ganache

July 23, 2014 | By matt | 0 Comments

I am not a great sleeper. In fact, I am a terrible one. I sleep in fits and starts – often with long stretches of sleeplessness (i.e. fidgety, eyes wide open, brain skipping/chugging) during the night. It used to bother me a good deal. It made me angsty and angry. But I have learned to give in – […]

It’s a good year to celebrate July 4th in Brooklyn! First, the famous fireworks (via Macy’s) are returning to the East River (it’s about time). And secondly (perhaps more importantly), Baked is making pie. Lot’s of Limited-Edition-Only-For-July-4th-Pie. Here is the Skinny: We are making two different limited edition pies… 1. Peach/Strawberry: This is a lattice-topped […]
