One of my goals for this autumn was to do two of the King Arthur Flour bakealongs. Each month they post a recipe and invite folks to bake the recipe and then post a picture on social media. I’ve wanted to do this for a long time, and I finally got in the kitchen and did it!
The recipe for November was Cinnamon Star Bread, and it looked WAY too complicated! My mom taught me that I can cook anything if I just followed the recipe, so I grabbed my apron and got started.
Y’all, I still can’t believe how simple this recipe was and how well it turned out! King Arthur Flour did a fantastic job on their step-by-step directions. Those made this project a joy!
You guys should definitely give this a try! Did I mention how good the directions were?!?
I’m looking forward to the December #bakealong now! I wonder what it will be!
Do you like to bake? Have you done a bakealong? Give this one a try and let me know how it goes!
I’m totally laughing at myself right now, so I just HAD to come over here and leave a quick note! Remember those basic rules of cooking that my mom taught me? Yep. I just went and totally blew #2: read the recipe all the way through BEFORE you begin!
I’m making Southern Living’s Ambrosia Pudding Pie for Thanksgiving. My pumpkin pies are already baked and cooling on a rack, so I started in on the ambrosia pudding pie. First step: make lemon curd. COOL! I’ve never made that before! I work through those steps and then read, “Chill for 4 hours or up to 3 days.” WHOOPSIE! Thankfully I have plenty of time this afternoon, so it’s all good, but this could have been quite the tragedy!
