Spring is most definitely in the air and while us Calgarians know better than to get overly excited in early April (it can snow well into May around here), I’m letting the joy and energy of Spring take over just a little. And what better way to celebrate than by baking!
When I think of Spring flavours, the first to come to mind is the bright, freshness of lemons. So that’s what I’m turning to for my Spring and Easter baking with a classic Lemon Tart. Gently sweetened and just tart enough (sans pucker), I think you’re going to love it.
When you think of St. Patrick’s Day you probably think of one of two things … the colour green or beer; since green beer is a thing at this time of year – perhaps you’re only thinking of one thing 😉 This year, I thought I would forgo the green food coloring and opt for a play on a classic, the Irish Coffee. Soft and chewy, these Irish Coffee Blondies are infused with classic flavours in two ways – ground coffee in the batter and Irish whiskey in the sugar glaze. The perfect sweet treat for the holiday. Enjoy!
Is there anything better than fresh homemade cinnamon rolls in the morning with a nice (strong) cup of coffee? Nope, I can’t think of anything either! But the work that goes into traditional cinnamon buns can sometimes make having them in the morning a bit of a challenge, which is why when I discovered Julie Blanners Cinnamon Roll Bread, I knew I had a winner on my hands. So much easier than traditional cinnamon buns, but all the same comforting flavours.
Julie swears the magic is in the swirling, I’m convinced it’s in the icing 😉 Enjoy!
