Baked anything tasty lately?

In the spirit of "What did you have for Breakfast/Lunch/Dinner" threads from Cooking & Recipes, did you bake anything tasty lately?

[The usual rules for these threads in C&R is no picture quoting and no pimping of your blog]

To start I'll offer up last night's loaf of bread. Basic white bread with a bit of horlicks and wheatgerm. Usually baked in a loaf tin but last night in a casserole dish to change things up. It's even harder to try to slice up

And something sweet (that's not actually baked, whoops).

Brioche doughnuts, fried at 175ºC, sprinkled in a blend of horlicks and caster sugar. I also provided dark chocolate ganache for dipping.

Great idea for a thread
Your bread and doughnuts look amazing.

I made lemon slices on Friday.

No pics (and they're not the most photogenic anyway, to be fair!) but I've just made a batch of fruit and egg mini muffins for relatively healthy snacks over the next few days. They're very easy and quick to make, just eggs, bananas, raspberries and vanilla extract. Tasty too

First of the year with the rhubarb crumble,



From a local community garden, thick stalks cut large. I forgot to stew them so they were crunchy, though well cooked!
For a change, I didn't measure the ingredients, just throwing together some flour, sugar, margarine and some jumbo oats.

Yep! It's got a lovely maltiness, and the milk helps the loaf to keep longer than 24hours. I'd highly recommend it.

Very interesting, I love Horlicks, do you think I could add it to Brown Bread?

More rhubarb. This time from mein very own garden.

I had wanted to make this,
http://www.farmfreshtoyou.com/recipe.../view/?id=3465

but in a hurry as the oven was already on with a sausage meat quiche. Laptop was off. Crap. Tried my phone, but can't see comments at the end of a FB album. Oh well, improvise.

I chopped up the rhubarb into small pieces. And mashed a banana and mixed both. Rolled out the pastry and filled with the mix. Then I had a pear leftover from my Mon-Fri brekkie schedule and fanned it around the top. Oh yeah, with added cardamom seeds chopped fine. As fine as I could get them.

Worked a treat.




with quiche to the right...

looking for a name now, for my invention!

Absolutely, for a soda bread, I wouldn't add too much unless you like the bread to be sweet. Add a couple of spoons with the flour.

For brown yeast bread, swap out any sugar you usually use for the horlicks.

The first slice or two always comes out ok, the rest of the loaf is an uneven disaster Settled on a wet dough after years of optimisation, looking at nearly 90% hydration some weeks.
