Our first of the month posts are usually for blog subscribers only, but with all the upheaval in the world right now, we’re trying to do any little thing we can to help our fellow bakers and cooks out. This pesto recipe utilizes the blender attachment for the Ankarsrum mixer and gives lots of substitutes for ways to make pesto with what you might have on hand now.
We’re bringing our last blog post of 2019 to you early, to cover those holiday baking needs. (And because we’re going on Christmas break!) Each year we pick some sort of theme for the blog, and 2019 saw a lot of traditional baking recipes, inspired by the Great British Bakeoff tv show. To properly wrap up the year, we are finishing with one of my favorite desserts: Sticky Toffee Pudding. This is not a pudding in the American sense. It’s a buttery, date-heavy cake with a toffee sauce poured over it while still hot to soak up all that deliciousness; and then served with extra sauce and a little whipped cream. It is heavenly!
