My Bakes and Recipes

So far in my baking journey most of what I’ve made has been direct from various recipe books, with occasional attempts to veer from the text: some successful, some OK, some disastrous. (Probably these last ones taught me more than the others – more on that later.)

You may well be much further on in your baking journey than me; you could be a seasoned expert (if so, please be patient with me.) Or you might have just begun your journey, creating brilliant bread, terrific tarts or fantastic flans. Whichever is nearer, I hope this will be of interest and benefit. I’m going to feature past bakes and talk through what happened: what went well and what didn’t. And, hopefully, why. Then I’ll either give the full recipe, or I’ll publish a link to where it can be found.
