Hello everyone and welcome to May! We usually start the first of the month off with a bonus recipe for our blog subscribers. But this month, with a lot of people still stuck at home, we are making it available to everyone. We’ve also teamed up with some great companies for our blog posts in May, which will result in a huge giveaway (including a mixer!!) at the end of the month when the blog will be celebrating five years! Since sourdough has seen a huge jump in popularity the past few months, we’re starting off with this super easy pancake recipe, which utilizes sourdough discard and doesn’t require any milk or eggs.Continue reading Sourdough Discard Pancakes
A couple years ago I had Basque Burnt Cheesecake for the first time at this little Spanish restaurant in Portland. My first thought was, why have I never heard of this? My second thought was, how can I recreate this? Deep brown and almost caramelized on the outside, fluffy and creamy on the inside, no crust, this was some kind of cheesecake magic. It has begun to grow in popularity lately, popping up in food magazines, blogs, and restaurants. And while it isn’t pretty and looks like, well, burnt cheesecake, your taste buds will thank you for trying it out.
We recently shared a recipe on social media for making classic Swedish Sugar Buns. I made them a couple times as the recipe was written but then my creativity went into overdrive and I realized I could tweak them just a bit and turn them into delicious cream cheese and jam danishes. A few more tests and I feel we have a winner! These are best served warm, right out of the oven but no one really complained when they enjoyed them the next morning, slightly warmed in the microwave. I used a slightly sweetened cream cheese mixture and cherry jam for mine but feel free to use just plain cream cheese if you’re trying to cut back on sugar and if another flavor jam is preferred, go for it. Make them your own. I personally enjoyed the slightly sweet cream cheese and the tart jam combination but let us know if you find a combination that you enjoy.
