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 […]

January 10, 2014 | By matt | 0 Comments

Holy dang. Baked is going to be 9 years old tomorrow!!!! NINE!!!! And to think we (myself/Renato) have only aged about 27+ years in that same time span.
