This week’s bake the bag is for a batch of cinnamon whole wheat scones. They’re not bad as far as scones go, but my favorite recipe is still the orange cranberry scones with lemon curd.

This week’s Bake the Bag recipe was the Carrot Cake, and wow, is it amazing. This cake is on par with the Chocolate Mousse cake, but oh so much easier to make.

A few weekends ago I did the King Arthur Flour April bakealong because I could. It was an almond puff loaf with jam on top. It tasted OK when it was warm, and gradually decreased in tastiness as the week wore on. The recipe heavily features the jam, and strawberry was not the best choice.
I did the King Arthur Flour February bakealong for a Super Bowl party this weekend. This month’s cake is a four layer chocolate cake, with a chocolate whipped cream filling, fresh raspberries, and a whipped chocolate icing. The cake was delicious and made a great breakfast all week. I’ve also decided to launch a secondContinue reading “King Arthur Flour Bakealong – Chocolate Mousse Cake with Raspberries”
