From The Pastry Dungeon: Banana Oatmeal Bread

Very Small Anna Anna Markow 4 comments

One of the downsides to being a pastry chef is fighting for oven space, especially when that surprise brunch service comes around.

Bake the Book: Chocolate Whoopie Pies with Banana Buttercream

Caroline Russock 1 comment

For our second foray into the world of whoopies I was all set to share a classic chocolate cake-vanilla butter cream filled pie from Sarah Billingsley's and Amy Treadwell's Whoopie Pies.
