I’ve had a busy baking week! I baked some banana-blackberry-chocolate chip bread last week. I used this recipe by Joy the Baker, replacing the cranberries with a cup of blackberries and added in 1/2 a cup of chocolate chips, because really, why not! The bread came out great. Everybody loved it and had a hard time stopping eating it!
This weekend, I had a beach bbq and brought dessert. I got a bit carried away and made two! In fact, I got so carried away that I didn’t notice the time fly by and showed up late! I baked some raspberry crumb bar from Baked: New Frontiers in Baking. It was really good as well. I should’ve let it cool longer before putting it in the tupperware though, by the time I got to the beach it had lost part of its bar shapped and turned partly into a crumble. People still loved it and asked for more though, so I’m still calling this one a success!
The other dessert I baked for the bbq was lemon cookies, once again, from Joy the Baker. I just love this blog! They were just the right crunchy/crumblyness to contrast the crumb bar turned crumble. The lemon flavour was light and perfect for a warm summer day in the sun.
