With so much going on this weekend, it was a miracle that I accomplished this baking feat. I really enjoyed it but wished for more time to make it prettier. I watched youtube and learned some techniques that really made it fun. I learned how to fold the dough together instead of just forking it around the edges. Next time I’ll use more egg wash so it browns up more and make sure to put more of the egg wash around the designs. The heart could have used more of an outline.
I think your cake looks delicious. Was it good? Haven’t heard of Baked 1.
I understand all too well how your uncle feels. My grandma wanted out of that facility and I didn’t blame her. I haven’t seen her for almost two weeks now and I really miss her. I’ll start helping here again soon but we wanted to make sure I was completely well first.
I’ll look for Lyle’s syrup-never heard of that either. Sounds very interesting.
Well, I haven’t tried that galette yet and I do plan to take it to work tomorrow but I think I need to treat myself to just a small slice tonight and hope it helps me get my laundry done.
I hope you had a nice day.
You did a fabulous job. I have to say, Abbey, you really are very thorough. You research techniques and recipes. You seem very determined and it is a joy to hear about. You should be very proud of your galette.
My cake was perfect. Yesterday I made 3 more loaves (1 recipe=3 loaves) and they will be shipped to my uncle tomorrow. It tuns out this isn’t for his birthday since he was born in February. But, on our last phone conversation he told me how much he wished he could have a honey cake. He had no idea I planned to make it for him. So, for his birthday I will have to make something else. He mentioned he likes sponge cake too. I’ve never made that so that will be a new adventure for me.
Baked 1 is a baking book. The real name is Baked: New Frontiers In Baking but they have 3 books out so I refer to it as 1. HERE IT IS
This is LYLES GOLDEN SYRUP. I use this with excellent results. Rose talks about it HERE and HERE.
There is a forum discussion about substitutes for corn syrup HERE.
Here are two pics of my Cinnamon Streusel Sour Cream Cake. It was excellent. The recipe makes a large 9 x 13 pan.
I hope you get to see your Grandma.
Have fun sharing your galette today.
