It’s October and it’s apple baking season for me. I know, I know…it’s the week of Halloween and I should maybe be posting something cute with ghosts or even pumpkin shaped cookies. I’m really bad at baking things for special holidays. Unless it’s Christmas…because we just love to bake Christmas cookies and Christmas breads. But […]

October 7, 2014

I’ve been dreaming of apple desserts for weeks. What a treat to wake up on Sunday morning to our first autumn cool front (in most other places, it was an actual cold front). But it is  beautiful, nonetheless, and I will take this temperature drop any day. This dessert maybe looks daunting and unapproachable, but […]

There are some things that I just completely LOVE. I mean, LOVE. One of the things I completely love is granola. Yes, granola! I know, I never talk that much with you or anyone I know about granola. Because, it’s granola! But today I was talking about granola with my American expat friend that lives […]

  The beginning of autumn in my corner of the world is pretty uneventful. I guess if you are really hoping for temperature changes like I am, you may notice a little bit of a less-humid breeze at the beginning of the day. Even though there isn’t any major cold front our way for a […]

Cinnamon Raisin Bread | Cake Duchess

I forgot what it felt like to bake a bread: just because! I mean, I bake focaccia quite often and of course, I bake for my #TwelveLoaves baking group once a month. But it seems somewhere along the line, I forgot to bake an occasional “just because” bread. I have to say I felt inspired […]

Penne Cheese | Cake Duchess

I’ve been debating on posting this recipe. I’ve been wondering if all of you care as much as I do about pasta recipes. I was curious to know if you love a great mac and cheese recipe as do I. Do you dream of comfort food dishes when the temperatures drop? Do you dream of […]

I like to make upside-down cakes. I do. I really do! I think about these sort of cakes often. I know, it does sound weird. But really, it’s not that weird if you’re into baking. The truth is, I don’t bake enough cakes over here.  I know that this also may sound weird coming from […]

  I love to plan ahead and surprise my family with fluffy rolls for breakfast. I love to bake cinnamon rolls and probably could have a tray each Sunday morning. But, that isn’t reality! So in honor for #TwelveLoaves September Pear challenge (and to find a good excuse to bake some buns!), I baked these […]

Pickled Jalapeno Peppers | Cake Duchess

Some like it hot! I do!! Summertime means easier recipes. We can’t wait for it to officially be barbecue season and to start grilling! I don’t know why I was obsessed with making pickled jalapeno peppers. It was something I had on mind for months!   I finally came across a recipe I thought would […]

Oh, this has been a doozy of a week weather-wise. It has been pouring! And I mean POURING! I never thought I’d get to baking my rosemary grissini. I kept saying, “Tomorrow I’ll bake them!” That tomorrow never came. The weather was awful and when there was a break from the rain and the sun […]
