Let’s Bake 15: New to You Round Up

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!



Let’s Bake 15: New to You


To celebrate a new year starting, our fifteenth (!!) Let’s Bake event will take the opportunity to bring in 2017 with a ‘New Year, New to You’ theme. 

Whether it’s a recipe that you’ve always liked the look of but never got round to making, a recipe from a recipe book you got for Christmas, or a new technique (making meringues always phased me until I bit the bullet and tried making them!), you have completely free rein on what to bring along. It’s a brand new year, so a perfect time to try something brand new to you!

Here are all the details – as usual, please email letsbakeinverness@gmail.com to book your place. 

Date: Sunday 29th January 2016, 4pm-5:30pm

Venue: Blend Tea and Coffee Merchants

Theme: New to You
