2 down, 1 to go

Last December, I made a seemingly simple resolution: learn to bake. I decided (quite arbitrarily) that I needed to make a cake, a pie crust, and something else before I decided it was done.

Since then, I’ve made a (quite good) cake, (kinda horrible) frosting, and a pie (bad filling but good crust).

To consider this resolution complete, I need to bake one more thing. Something that’s not a cake and not a pie; something that makes people go “ooh, nice!” when you bring it out from the kitchen. But what? I don’t know… a clafoutis? tarte tatin? some kind of quick bread?

Ideas?

  1. The great thing about the recipe is not the absence of kneading it is the goodness (and beauty) of the result. I can’t knead a loaf as wet as the one in the recipe – it’s just too sticky. But, the bread is wonderfully moist. And, backing it in a hot covered pot gives it a great look and texture.

    Just try it. If you feel an irresistible need to knead, work on your beloved’s back for a bit.

  2. Wow, some of these suggestions are a bit steep for a novice baker! But hey, its all about the challenge, I suppose. (Personally, I bake a lot and never make bread…what a pain in the…)

    I was going to suggest Buttermilk Biscuits.

    They are so dreamy…

  3. Really good and really interesting post. I expect (and other readers maybe :)) new useful posts from you!
    Good luck and successes in blogging!
