Honey Buttermilk Bread

I saw this type of bread pop up on pinterest a few times and decided I need to give it a try. IT WAS SO WORTH IT. I makes this lovely soft and delicious bread with almost a slight hint of sweetness to it. It is amazing for sandwiches or dipping in soup. It does … Continue reading Honey Buttermilk Bread


Sweet Almond Twist Bread

So I absolutely had to try this recipe. I love almond croissants and pretty much anything that has almond paste involved and this loaf of bread did not let me down. This is a normal bread loaf with a literal twist. The twisted loaf of bread is very fun to make and is a nice … Continue reading Sweet Almond Twist Bread

Day 14:Garlic Cheese Bomb Tree

Another savoury bake perfect for Christmas parties. I made this one for the little Christmas event we hosted last night. The recipe is really easy and you can make it ahead of time and just heat up when needed, which is very helpful. I love garlic bread and a pull-apart one filled with mozzarella is … Continue reading Day 14:Garlic Cheese Bomb Tree

Day 13: Swedish Saffron Buns

I mentioned earlier in the month that I had a completely failed bake that wouldn't have worked as a post, so I had to look for a new bake to replace it. Luckily my friend Mike swept in with another awesome bake! He is a fellow Canadian abroad (living in Sweden) and has sent me … Continue reading Day 13: Swedish Saffron Buns

Day 12: Craisin Scones

I thought I would make a nice (and more healthy) bake for day 12. My mum makes craisin scones pretty regularly, which means I get to have them when I am home at Christmas, so they have a nice holiday feel to me. Plus cranberries are a nice winter, festive flavour. These are so delicious! … Continue reading Day 12: Craisin Scones

Day 9: Pretzel Buns

These are awesome. Sorry, I had to start with that because I can't believe how well they turned out. It can be really hard to make pretzels, but the bun shape makes them much easier to poach and all-in-all this was an easy recipe that produced super good pretzel buns. The reason I love pretzel … Continue reading Day 9: Pretzel Buns

Day 4: Dutch Kerststol

J is born and raised in Scotland, but the last name van Wessel isn't exactly a traditional Scottish name. His parents are Dutch, and therefore part of Christmas comes a bit early for us. At the beginning of December we celebrate Sinterklaas, or the Dutch version of Christmas. I thought it would be fun to … Continue reading Day 4: Dutch Kerststol

Super Soft White Dinner Rolls

I really love fresh warm bread. We were making all of our own for a while, but I bread maker is no longer working, so I haven't been baking very much. I thought I would make a loaf of white bread for sandwiches today, but we still have a lot of bread from the store … Continue reading Super Soft White Dinner Rolls

Pumpkin Challah

Sorry for the long time between posts. I actually baked a cake midweek for the blog, but it was so inedible I didn't see the point in posting it. Here is a picture of the finished product... The recipe I tried to use was for a Black Magic cake and god did it suck. I … Continue reading Pumpkin Challah
