Have miso, have bananas, make Miso Banana Bread! With a dash of cinnamon of course. I've been baking so much bread lately that I've been neglecting my cakes/pastries. Felt like baking up some banana breads but did not want to do 'the usual'. Also, I've not made mousse cakes in the longest time! So black … Continue reading Recipe: Miso Banana Bread.

Bless and Be Blessed.

The ground hazelnuts were brought back from his last visit to Germany and I wanted him to use it up quick lest it go rancid in our heat and humidity. But first, BREAD! I've been playing around quite … Continue reading Recipe: German Haselnusskuchen
It took a 'circuit breaker' to get the hubs into the kitchen. Not complaining! He wanted to bake German cheesecake to satisfy his cravings for them. We had some quark that he had brought back from Germany when he went to visit his grandfather. They needed to be used so last week, he took the … Continue reading Käsekuchen and Sourdough.
