S O U R D O U G H • I jumped on the baking bandwagon and definitely LEAPED into the world of sourdough bread. To get here I ended up getting 50lbs of bread flour from @kingarthurflour, constantly visited @bakerbettie’s @instagram, read and re-read @thekitchn’s recipe hundreds of times, purchased two bread baking cook books, and because the owner of a @lecreuset Dutch oven. After weeks of agonizing over creating starter (and failing multiple times from a simple error - I didn’t mix the food in, daily) and constantly baking other things (regular bread, banana bread...) I finally felt prepared. And this was the result! Well, one of them. • It’s kind of weird(?) that many bread baking recipes cause you to end up with two loaves. Sure you could literally halve everything but I haven’t had the confidence to do that because baking is chemistry and tinkering with science isn’t something I’m great at. What’s not pictured here is the burnt loaf. The one that sat in the Dutch oven 15 minutes less than the recipe called for, but smelled burnt, came out pretty black and unappealing. Lessons learned. This one sat in the Dutch oven for significantly less time and the moment it smelled like it was maybe considering thinking about getting burnt, I pulled it. And it was hollow sounding. And it was golden. And it cracked when I cut into it. • Was it worth it? Learning new skills is always worth it. Trying new things is always worth it. Being willing to take calculated risks is always worth it. But, I’m not big on carbs so we’ll see if this is something that sticks and if I keep making more. I’ve definitely had a lot of bread and jam this week for lunch! • #sourdough #sourdoughbread #sourdoughbaking #breadmaking #breadbaking

Results will be posted once it’s rested. I love peanut brittle but I don’t want to ruin my weight loss. Now I found a recipe for a low carb version. First attempt at making a low carb peanut brittle. #candy #bake #sweets #lowcarb #lgbt #gay #gaybaker #noms #delicious #hopeitturnsout

throwback to Ptown summer ‘17. i had just gone thru a bad break up, closed up my doughnut biz and moved back to the US from France. i had no idea where to go or what to do with my life (still don’t tbh) & honestly i felt like a huge fucking loser. i got connected with this job and had a facetime interview with my soon-to-be boss. less than a month later i left NYC again and spent the summer season in Provincetown working with @senoritaleslita @rcand @elizabeth_daire and some kick ass Jamaicans, making pastries for all of the gays and kayaking a lot and going to tea dance and showing up at work to bake off at 5am still drunk some mornings (LOL). it was stupid fun and 100% necessary and one of my most favorite summers. it was also my first time being completely in charge of a pastry menu and a (very rad) small team which was scary but awesome. @rbicakes ate the French crullers i made for the bakery and IG’d them and that was the very first time a well-known chef had eaten something i made. lol i felt SO cool. anyways! i’ll stop rambling now. TLDR: i’ll always be thankful for having the opportunity to work, play, and self heal during that very gay summer a few years back. ☀️🌈💕🙏 #reflection #tbt

Orange Bundt Cake This is a simple orange cake that includes orange zest and orange juice. Interesting technique of activating the leavening agent in the orange juice. This is similar to the activation of the leavening in vinegar for red velvet cake. Recipe courtesy of Maria del Mar Cuadra @seriouseats @mdm_foodstylist . Sometimes bundt cakes do not release from the pan easily. This one was difficult to release, but fortunately it did not stick to the pan! #orangebundtcake #orangecake #coronavirusbaking #coronavirusbakingtherapy #pastrycook #gaybaker

Vegan, gluten-free blueberry pie bars with oatmeal crumble Its berry season y’all! I love blueberry pie especially if it has a rich oat crumble. So naturally I had to make this recipe and omg. Mouthwatering deliciousness. Plus it’s vegan and gluten-free which allows you to enjoy a piece (or 9) guilt free. 🤤 Recipe: https://www.ambitiouskitchen.com/blueberry-pie-bars/ #blueberry #blueberries #blueberrypie #oatmeal #crumble #ambitiouskitchen #food52 #f52gram #you #foryou #foryoupage #gaybaker #gaybaking #gaybakers #gay #bakestagram #bakingfun #thebakefeed #feedfeed #bakinglife #bakedfromscratch #bakingathome #bakes #homebaked #instabake #homebaker #bakerlife #bakinglove #bake #thebakefeed
