Sweet Tooth

I confess I’ve had my copy of Lily Vanilli’s Sweet Tooth: Recipes and Tips from a Modern Artisan Bakery for quite a while now but have yet to make anything substantial from it. That’s definitely not to say that I don’t like the book. Quite the opposite. It’s a great resource for all bakers, new and experienced. The descriptions of the types of ingredients i.e. different flours and sugars are a valuable resource along with lists of useful tools. Each basic recipe provides variations for readers showing that one simple cake can be made in so many ways. It in no way suggests that this list is complete but rather provides a spring board for inspiration.

My bucket list has grown enormously just by looking through it. Given my current little pause in baking I’ve had time to reflect. A note of my must makes seemed like a good idea and where better to make my list but on here. So when I have time I would like to make the following (in no particular order):

  • Apple and rosemary olive oil cake
  • Chocolate avocado cake
  • Pear, parsnip and ginger cake
  • Hazelnut and pineapple upside-down cake
  • Spiced apple custard tarts
  • Wholegrain spelt scones

I’m going to be one very busy lady and this doesn’t even include all the added extras at the back of the book like pecan brittle and honeycomb.

  1. Hi Jen, good luck with your bucket list!

    I love new food adventures and personally invite you to a link up event called Our Growing Edge and be included in the our next round up.

    This monthly event aims to push food bloggers to try new things and to compile a monthly snapshot of what we are getting up to. There is no pressure to join every month, only when you have a new foodie experience to share. This is an opportunity to challenge yourself or a little nudge in that direction. A Growing Edge is the part of us that is still learning and experimenting. It’s the part that you regularly grow and improve, be it from real passion or a conscious effort.
