When it comes to holiday baking, it’s always hard to choose a favourite. But if there was a flavour profile I absolutely adore at this time of year and find myself gravitating towards time and time again, it would have to be all things spiced. If you’ve been here for the last few years, you would have seen my Molasses Spiced Cake. Still a favourite and one that I will definitely be baking again this year.
But I thought I would kick off the holiday baking season with something a little less quintessentially holiday – a Spiced Pear Cake, with Butterscotch Sauce.
The summer has flown by and I sadly have not made it one campfire or fire-pit all season! While truthfully my desire to sit fireside has been damped by all the smoke in the air from the devastating BC fires, I’ve sure missed enjoying a s’more or two! So, I’ve decided to take matters into my own hands this week with a S’mores Pie – no fire necessary. Well, no open fires that is, you’ll need a kitchen torch to flame the meringue 😉
With one of the longest winters behind us – finally – I’m craving some light and fruity flavours. And with the weekend a mere hours away, my mind’s on cocktails. If you read my post on creating an elegant and easy Parisian Brunch, you know that I owe you a cocktail for brunch. And have I got the perfect one! My Gin and Jam Fizz, is easy, fruity and perfect for brunch.
