I started my cake-making adventure lately, and the first, most basic cream used to ice the cake is the buttercream — it's very simple, and makes a delicious, thick and stable cake cream that you will love!
As you can see in the recipe image, I used it already in my vanilla butterscotch cupcakes, which got rave reviews from my friends and coworkers! :-) Unfortunately the cream alone is rather not spectacular, just a sweet, delicious blob of butter and sugar ;-)
Making bread is an art, and it's also a science — but when you get to know basics, you can get really creative and make beautiful, tasty breads and bread rolls. You have to start somewhere, and this soft bread recipe is a terrific way to enjoy fresh, spongy, tasty bread whenever you want!
This recipe is a great base for more fancy breads — you can add more dry ingredients, e.g. nuts, sunflower seeds, dried tomatoes, olives, to make the bread more interesting and artisanal.
Baguettes are a perfect bread for breakfast, soup, or a kick-ass sandwich — they have a crispy shell and tasty, slightly moist and white insides, perfect for cheese, jam or delicate meat toppings. And they look amazing, so you can surprise your friends and family with both delicious and great looking bread! The only caveat is the required baking form in the appropriate shape, but you will not regret buying it after you make your first batch!
This recipe is simply amazing — great right from the oven, delicious the next day and really easy to prepare. You can also upgrade it with nuts, raisins and whatever you like in your rolls.
