I bake a great amount of shortbread cookies pretty frequently. My friends, family and clients adore shortbread. In fact it’s hard to not love these buttery, crumbly and melt-in-your-mouthy treats! The beauty about shortbread is it takes no fancy ingredients. Just a few kitchen staples – butter, sugar and flour, as well as a little basic baking skills , and you are ready to create such an addictive cookie!
I am sure everyone has their own favourite lasagna recipe. I made mine quite often as this is one of my kids’ favourite dishes. And what makes it possible to be made frequently is the basic ingredients. You can go as fancy as using turkey meat, Italian sausages, buffalo mozzarella, fresh herbs… You can also go with some simple and easily accessible ingredients, like what I use here, minced beef, canned tomato sauce, mozzarella block…
I never bake only one loaf of butter pound cake because it freezes well, it makes a perfect gift, it can be breakfast, snack or dessert. Have you tried toasting a slice on grill and serve it with vanilla ice cream? Such a perfect summer BBQ dessert!
How do you normally define bread?
I guess the easiest way is to see if that baked good involves yeast. If it does, it must be bread. However, we’ve also come across a lot of bread recipes that require no yeast at all. No kneading. And no raising. And most important no waiting!
We all love banana bread for its simplicity and versatility. It can be a plain old banana bread loaf. And you slice it and smear some butter on top for breakfast. It can be the one with tons of great stuff. Chocolate chips are almost the must-have! I love mine with walnuts and coconuts too! And you know the smell of it when it’s being baked in the oven…oh!
