Baked Raised Donut Recipe

I’m a little donut obsessed. Ever since last summer, enjoying hot fresh donuts from Duck Donuts changed me from enjoying donuts to LOVING donuts. Last summer I made raised, fried donuts and used that recipe for some filled donuts (S’mores and Maple Bacon). BUT sometimes I want something less heavy, baked instead of fried, BUT not cake donuts either. SO here they are, yeast based BAKED donuts! You can use this recipe for the filled donuts as well!

Kouign Amann Recipe and Video Tutorial

Kay, We’re at the end of the Pastry series (or are we… I MIGHT have a bonus recipe/video in 2 weeks… Okay I totally will).  ANYWAY I hope you’ve enjoyed it as much as I have (I can attest I’ve gained a TON of weight working on these recipes).  I love that you can make so much with the same basic layered dough and I hope you guys have learned a lot from the videos!

Chocolate Chocolate Chip Bagels

Recently I’ve had a couple of interviews where I’ve been asked about how I got started baking.  It’s been fun to reflect on the journey I’ve been taking with food over my life and I thought I’d share a little with you!  I grew up loving food, but it wasn’t until we moved to Japan that my love turned from just eating to creating.  I love meat, carbs and sweets (my three food groups) and Japan isn’t big on baked goods.  In fact almost no one even owns an oven!

Homemade Croissants

Here is my last recipe, Croissants, I made this year for our Blogger Thanksgiving! The FULL roundup with links to everyone will be posted tomorrow!

I have been making homemade croissants for years. I remember the first time I made then, about 7 years ago, I was so worried that they simply wouldn’t work. I mean they seem SO complicated! But in truth they are really SO easy, but a bit messy. There is simply a lot of waiting! Do a few steps, wait, do a few steps wait…. etc… But when you break one open they are SO worth it!

Everyone love buttery, flaky croissants and making them from scratch is not hard at all
