Weekend Baking Project: Hummingbird Pudding Cake

Weekend Baking Project Carrie Vasios Mullins 5 comments

Why is this one of my go-to dinner party desserts? Because I don't want to stress. Because it's made in just one bowl and its presentation—that old bake sale classic, the 9-inch square pan—immediately signals "this isn't a fancy dessert so just eat me and refill your wine." More

Weekend Baking Project: Guava and Cream Cheese Pastelitos

Weekend Baking Project Carrie Vasios Mullins Post a comment

Pastelitos—literally, "little pies"—are puff pastry turnovers filled with guava paste and cream cheese. The sweet, fruity guava is balanced by the tangy cream cheese, and I love the contrast of the soft filling with the buttery, easily shattering puff pastry shell. More

Weekend Baking Project: Irish Brown Bread

I love all breads, from airy ciabattas to elegant French baguettes. But sometimes I want a hearty, rustic, craggy bread. You know, a big old slice of nubbly, oaty bread that just begs to be spread with a layer of thick jam or a melting pat of butter. This is that bread. More

Weekend Baking Project: Fig and Walnut Biscotti

Weekend Baking Project Carrie Vasios Mullins Post a comment

As quaint as it would be, I doubt many of us are actually making figgy pudding for the holidays. May I suggest instead these fig and walnut biscotti? They're a personal favorite, incorporating everything that reminds me of Christmas: cloves, cinnamon, nutmeg, and orange. More
