Twist bread

Daring Kitchen
May 2016

Hi, I am Tandy and I blog over at Lavender and Lime . I have been blogging since September 2009 and have enjoyed participating in the Daring challenges over the years. Every week I make bread. Usually a sourdough loaf as I have the most amazing sourdough starter. To me there is something really amazing about the smell of bread baking. Even better is the glorious scent you get when you cut into the bread. Filled breads to me are my first choice, and so the challenge this month is to make your own filled bread, using ingredients you most love.

Kouign Amann

Daring Kitchen
April 2016

A kouign amann (prounounced “kwee-amahn”) is a round crusty pastry that originated in Brittany in roughly 1860. It is made with a bread dough that is laminated (think of a croissant or puff pastry) and then sprinkled with sugar before being cut into squares and baked in muffin tins. I became aware of this morning pastry as I watched an episode of The Great British Bake Off and was keenly interested in trying it simply because I’d never heard of it before and really, you can’t go wrong with layers of dough, butter, and sugar … right??

Stroopwafels

Daring Kitchen
March 2016

Hi. I’m Julianna from Ohio. I’ve participate in the DBC off and on since 2009. When Rachael and Sawsan put out the call for hosts I thought it was about time I do my part. I have enjoyed so many challenges. I bring you the Stroopwafel.

Katmer pie

Daring Kitchen
February 2016

Hi everyone! Hope you are doing fine! I am Milkica from Mimi’s Kingdom. I’ve decided to challenge my dear fellow Daring Kitchen members to prepare traditional Serbian Katmer pie. Katmer pie originates from southern parts of Serbia. To be more precise, it is kind of pie made with katmer dough, very old and traditional type of puff pastry. This type of dough is made with lard instead of butter and is much simpler than puff pastry.

HAPPY NEW YEAR 2016 to the lovely members of the Daring Kitchen. Hope you have a year of complete Baking and Culinary bliss! Let 2016 unleash your unbound creativity and raise the bar of this platform.

 

I am Shillpa Bhaambri from Cakeline the Journey, a Baker and Cake designer living in Mumbai, India. This is the first challenge that I am hosting, ever since I became a Daring kitchen member in early 2015. Being part of the daring kitchen has, not only connected me with passionate bakers from the world over, but has also given me amazing insight and learning in the baking stream.

Gateaux Pithiviers

Daring Bakers
December 2015

Hello. Long-time Daring Baker Kat here with the December challenge. Gateaux Pithiviers, also called Galette des Rois or King’s Cakes, are traditionally eaten at Lent. Pithiviers are essentially a cake-sized pastry stuffed with an almond filling. A charm, or feve, is sometimes baked into the dessert, and whoever is served that piece is “King for the Day.” The dessert is named for the town of Pithiviers south of Paris. I encourage you to stroll through this beautiful town via Google maps if you need a quick vacation without leaving your desk.

Macarons

Daring Bakers
October 2015

Hi! We are Rachael from pizzarossa and Korena from Korena in the Kitchen and we are very excited to bring you the French Macaron! The Daring Bakers tackled the macaron back in October 2009, however with so many new members we thought it would be a good challenge to re-visit. Macarons are a quintessentially French pastry – beautiful, delicate, and a bit finicky – but with a few tips and the right technique, they are completely achievable for the home baker.
