This beautiful braided bread is wonderful on its own or used for French toast. My students do this recipe over two days but you can make it in just one.

My students made these lovely little New Orleans style doughnuts a little late for Mardi Gras but we loved them anyway! The class did them over two days but you can do it all in one if you have the time.

Yield: 10 - 2 inch squares

I did not do a photo tutorial for this recipe because Joe Pastry has a perfect one on his site...see link at the bottom of this page. And because my hands were far to greasy from all the butter to pick up a camera. The pictures are of my student's work, and I'm super impress with their products, we're going to work on the egg wash but otherwise the croissants were light and fluffy, just as they're supposed to be!

Chocolate Babka

Posted in /Cooking/Breads on Saturday, February 10, 2018

I've been doing a lot of curriculum planning for my three different grade levels of foods classes. The grade 11s and 12s are currently working on a yeast module and I wanted something more than buns and sandwich bread for them. I came across this recipe on Smitten Kitchen (one of my favorite food bloggers) and I knew I needed to try it before I let my students tackle it. The recipe is a two dayer outside of the classroom, but will be a three dayer for my students, so that will work out well for my their class. The loaf didn't rise as much as I was hoping but that is due to the fact that I used traditional yeast (which I always have in my fridge) and not quick rise yeast. Nevertheless, the loaf is beautiful and my house smells AMAZING!

Lemon Poppy Seed Bread

Posted in /Cooking/Breads on Saturday, January 20, 2018

Muffins are such an easy snack you see them everywhere from your local coffee shop to hospital vending machines. Some muffins are so sweet they're really just a cupcake without the frosting and a bit of fruit hidden inside.

Being a teacher I go to quite a few meetings where snacks are provided, and whenever lemon poppy seed muffins are an option they're the first to go. There are a million different versions of lemon poppy seed recipes, my adaptation is subtly lemon and refreshingly sweet without being a cupcake.

Makes 12-16 muffins
