Marmalade Tea Cake

Okay, here’s the recipe for the orange marmalade cake WITH the recipe for it! It’s a wonderfully fragrant cake with a tender crumb, and I’ve made so many of them lately that I could practically do it in my sleep now. Recipe below the jump. […]

Lemon Poppy Seed Tea Cake

There’s nothing as wonderful as citrus in the winter, is there? My recipe for this light and fragrant cake is after the jump, plus a variation to make an orange cake. Another tea cake! Lemon poppyseed, a pretty ordinary (but underappreciated) combo, improved by buttermilk […]

Pear-Almond Tea Cake

Tea cakes continue to be my favorite cakes to bake, and here’s a really nice one. This is a pear-almond tea cake made with one very ripe, asymmetric pear from last week’s @imperfectproduce box and chopped roasted almonds, flavored with a spoonful of @clearcreekdistillery pear […]

Quince Spice Cake

In other “waste not, want not” news, I created a new recipe using up the boozy shredded quince left over from making holiday liqueurs, and it’s really good. This is based on a combination of the Joy of Cooking’s applesauce cake and apple spice cake […]

Pflaumenmus Tea Cookies

Mince Pie

Mincemeat pie made with Granny Smith apples and persimmon jelly; dried cranberries, apricots, plums, figs; candied ginger and orange; walnuts and my medlar-infused brandy. Lots of butter (in lieu of tallow, which I don’t have) and spices too! Second photo is of two little blackberry […]

Figgy Pudding

This is especially nice rewarmed as a coffee cake to serve for breakfast. Warm figgy bundt cake made with puréed roasted figs that I froze back in July, studded with pistachios, glazed with honey and melted butter, and topped with a diced brown turkey fig […]

Fast Caramel Corn

Caramel corn: not just for the holidays anymore! Fun fact: as long as you have a paper bag, all popcorn is microwave popcorn. I made dead-simple caramel corn by drizzling and tossing hot popcorn with warm @almachocolate habanero caramel and @jacobsensaltco flake salt, and it’s […]
