I made Kougin Amann for the first time this weekend too! I used the Bon Appetite tutorial but didn't like how they added sugar into the butter block because the recipe called for so much chilling time in the fridge that the sugar liquified and made the dough soggy and hard to work with. Going to try again with a regular butter block. Yours look fab! I felt like the base of mine was quite dense.. not even as light as brioche so hopefully a different recipe will get better results. Checking out the food52 you linked too. This is the most delicious type of thing to learn :)

Until recently I had never even heard of a salted butter breakup. Turns out its a big slab of sweet, buttery shortbread laced with hints of salt that you break into pieces and enjoy with friends. Or.. break into pieces and keep all for yourself (either option is good). Continue reading

Jarvis: So glad that you liked them! We're going to be making them again soon, I already have the ham in the fridge Renee: Waffle is a *beautiful* middle name

Amanda: It's always, ALWAYS breakfast in my heart Mariana: It's true! Waffles are different over there. I lived in England for part of my uni degree and was confused by the difference in pancakes, waffles, and flapjacks (which are pancakes in canada, but oat bars in England) Ashley: Try yeasted waffles! They are so, so much better than all the other waffles Stephanie: These are my total weakness Yellowfish: It's the perfect place for ham :)

Janice: cookie dough in ice cream is amazing. I think even chunks of a denser cake frozen into ice cream would be good too. Just not blended completely

Alyse: It definitely wouldn't make it worse, the crumb/soggy bread texture was the worst worst part. Adding the batter would still be throwing flour into the mix, but would probably be a waaay better texture. I almost wish you hadn't suggested this because now I want to get out my blender and test it out!

Once I discovered cupcake flavored milkshakes on Pinterest (adorably named 'cupshakes') I knew I had to pull out my blender and test of few of the recipes in another cake-flavored recipe showdown. Continue reading

Heather: you can use skim or 1%, but the whole milk enriches the dough and helps create the peelable layers and cloud softness. The buns will still be soft and tasty, but the dough will be leaner.

Sylvia: Both! I often just take them out of the freezer and let them thaw on the counter. But if I'm impatient then I'll throw one or two in the microwave until warm

Christy: Thanks for the tip! We'll have to try it Kimberly: Interesting idea, a dessert empananda Tania: So glad that you have been enjoying them! I'm going to message Maggie a copy of your comment (because it's her recipe). I really appreciated her sharing the recipe with me
Nicole: If only they could bottle that baking bread smell! Hope you have a chance to give the recipe a try Recbecca: *Everything* is better with tea Ashley: Try them! It does make a lot of buns, but I find that they keep for a few days in a ziplock bag (plus fresh bread is never ever hard to give away to friends) Renee: Aw, thanks Renee! Story: That sounds amazing! I'm making ham and cheese waffles right now actually (the batter is sitting on my counter) because I loooove the savory fillings topped with sweet syrup.

Golden on the outside, soft and cloud-like on the inside. These milk & honey buns have been on my to-bake list for two years. I would kick myself for not making them sooner, but I'm too busy eating delicious buns. Continue reading

Valerie: You certainly can! Dutch cocoa only affects recipes where a chemical leavener is used (aka baking soda or baking powder) because it has much lower acidicy. These brownies have no leavener so they are safe to substitute.
