June is here, and time for some lighter summer desserts. If you are wondering what an Eton Mess is, it is the best kind of mess. Bits of meringue, whipped cream and fresh fruit (usually strawberries) make up a delightfully airy dessert with all those textures balancing out into the perfect bite. How this British concoction came about is a bit of a debate. The most accepted version involves an Eton v Harlow cricket match in the late 19th century and a dropped meringue/strawberry/cream pudding All I know for sure is that it is quite scrumptious. And easy, and the perfect summer dessert.
We started doing something new this year, featuring recipes from home bakers or small bakeries/food businesses using the Ankarsrum mixer. It has been a delicious project and we have loved trying out all the new (to us) recipes. Home baker Joy Zbinden was generous enough to share her mom’s recipe for Butternut Rolls, and they are amazing.
We couldn’t let apple season pass by without one more apple recipe: Apple Cinnamon Rolls. Reminiscent of traditional cinnamon rolls, these used freeze dried apples in the dough as well as the filling to give it that ultimate apple kick. So even if you don’t get to go apple picking this autumn, you can still enjoy a baked apple treat, topped with cinnamon cream cheese frosting no less.
