We had a fab time sharing our ‘new to you’ bakes recently along with lots of baking chat! First up were the breads!
Dawn brought along two varieties of focaccia, which she had recently learnt to make at a local breadmaking class!
Sharon shared her cornish saffron bread, and Karen delivered a huge Kanellangd (swedish cinnamon bread) inspired by her swedish friends!
Fruit and vegetables were incorporated into bakes too – Kirsty’s twist on a carrot cake saw grated parsnips integrated into a loaf cake topped with maple frosting.
Gwynneth’s Banana Cream Pie featured a huge layer of chocolate!
Susan made an American classic – red velvet cake…
and Swenja brought along a Russian Medovik caje which was made up of lots of thinly layered chocolate cake sandwiched with pastry cream!
To finish, Mairi’s mint chocolate macarons were enjoyed by all!
Our next meeting will be in March/April, so keep an eye out for details!
