I’ve been baking a lot over the last few months. It’s been so therapeutic to bake. While I’ve been baking for the last decade but I’ve usually stuck to the same easy-ish recipes. But over the past few months I’ve been experimenting with breads, pies, pizzas and it’s been a lot of fun. The only sad part is that I usually don’t have patience to take photos before digging in! I try to take 1-2 photos and then quickly dig in to whatever I’ve baked. I don’t share these photos anywhere because they usually don’t turn out very aesthetic. But I am so proud of how much my baking game has levelled up that I thought I’d share them here. I’ll also try to link the recipes incase you’re interested in trying them out!
While I was going for a deep dish pizza but I ended up not making it deep enough so I’m going to call it a pizza pie instead. But it turned out so amazingly tasty – my family finished it in no time. I used Bigger Bolder Baking’s No Yeast 15 Minute Pizza Dough recipe – which is such an easy recipe to follow for the dough. Definitely try out this recipe to bake pizza at home in under 30 minutes!
Mixed Berry Tart
This mix berry tart was so much better than I imagine it was going to be! I randomly ended up ordering a bunch of frozen berries, so I decided to bake this pie to use them all up. This pie was so good! I used Wife Mama Foodie’s basic recipe but tweaked it a little.
Fudgy Vegan Brownie Cookies
All vegans reading this – go give this cookie recipe a shot – these bookies were DA BOMB! They were so insane that it took 2 days for my family to finish a bunch of 18 cookies. I followed The Loopy Whisk’s recipe to the tee, though her cookies definitely look way better than mine do – but really who cares as long as they taste amazing?
Eggless Red Velvet Cake with Cream Cheese Frosting
Sadly, this cake didn’t end up looking as beautiful as I imagined it would in my head. I really need to up my cake decorating skills – which is next on my baking agenda! But the cake tasted so good with the cream cheese frosting that I forgave my bad skills! 🙈 I followed Shivesh’s recipe for the cake and frosting.
Peanut Butter Chocolate Cookies
I’ve done a whole blog about these cookies cause this recipe was insane! But posting about this batch because I baked these with less sugar (didn’t use any white sugar) and chocolate since I was sending this batch for my granny. They still turned out really good and chewy! Checkout the recipe on my blog.
Cinnamon Star Bread
This was such a fun and a little difficult recipe to bake. This cake is baked with layers of dough, one over the other and then shaped into a star shape. Since I wasn’t sure of I’d get the star shape right – I just baked it into twisty ends. It tasted really good – cinnamon and brown sugar is such an amazing combo! You can check out the recipe on The Desserted Girl’s Blog.
Blueberry Crumble Cake
This cake was so so so good! I wish I had gotten better photos of it. It has this perfect crumble top and a yummy cakey bottom with a ton of blueberries. I love love love Bigger Bolder Baking – Gemma has the best recipes which can be very easily followed. Go give her blog and YouTube channel a lot of love. Her recipe helped me bake a birthday cake in the microwave with limited ingredients for my flatmate during the lockdown. Go check out the blueberry crumble recipe on her blog!
I also baked a lot of other breads including a Chocolate Babka that needs some working on! I wish I took better photos of the food I baked but literally after waiting for hours for it to come together – I just want to taste the dish hot out of the oven! But I’m going to work on my food photography – a goal for the next few dishes. I will post a new blog with more aesthetic photos.
Till then, stay safe and eat on!❤️
