Wake and Bake: Irish Tea Brack (Tea-Soaked Raisin Bread)

Wake and Bake Carrie Vasios Mullins Post a comment

When people think of Irish baked goods, they often think of scones and soda bread. I love both those things, but the truth is that Ireland has an awesome bread baking tradition, ranging from hearty yeasted breads to fruit-filled quick breads. This is one of the latter—specifically a type of brack (from the Irish word brac, meaning spotted). The key is soaking raisins in tea overnight. More

Wake and Bake: Chocolate Walnut Povitica

Wake and Bake Carrie Vasios Mullins 3 comments

I had never heard of this bread before, but when you suddenly have enough of something to feed a small army, you do a little research.

This version, made with chocolate and walnuts, is a little time intensive to prepare but totally sweet and satisfying in the end. More

Wake and Bake: Pumpkin Cornbread

Wake and Bake Carrie Vasios Mullins Post a comment

If, like me, you're in need of a bit of the Thanksgiving spirit, I offer a two-pronged remedy. First, find A Charlie Brown Thanksgiving on Netflix and watch it. Second, find a cast iron skillet and make some cornbread. There's something about mixing up this easy bread and baking it in a heavy, seasoned iron pan that feels very Americana and pioneer and Laura Ingalls Wilder all rolled into one. More

Wake and Bake: Chocolate Walnut Espresso Loaf

Oh, Moravian Sugar Cake—you're not the prettiest cake in the bakery case, in fact, let's be blunt: you're a bit of a plain Jane. But if cakes could score points on personality, you're a solid ten. More
