Quarantine got me cooking and baking like never before, I spend so much time on my kitchen just trying different recipes and combinations. Got a bag of Saskatoon berries from @foragedandfoundedibles and decided to make an American coffee cake, something so simple, quick and satisfying #saskatooncake #saskatooncoffeecake #homebaker #seattlebaker #bakedathome #coffeecake #saskatoon

There’s nothing like some healthy comfort food during this strange time. I love being able to make simple desserts with things already in my kitchen. Pictured is my Banana Chocolate Muffin 🍌🍫 Do you like your muffins plain or with nuts?

Made the buttermilk biscuits from the #cravingscookbook a few days back. As you can see, I got some nice height and somewhat acceptable layers? Normally I use my go-to cream biscuit recipe, but occasionally I want the real deal. Anyone have a holy grail biscuit recipe for flaky layers they’d like to share? #quarantinebaking

Happy #caketoptuesday! The credit for today’s post really goes to my girl Evelien, who told her Mom @cplawson480 a few weeks ago that we should bake a cake together and decorate it with meringues! Well since that can’t happen for the foreseeable future, I still took her advice and topped this 30th Birthday cake with meringue kisses and couldn’t be more pleased with it! The dusting of strawberry powder gives color and a slight flavor to the meringues, with my favorite @sweetapolita sprinkles to round out the festivity. I hope everyone is staying home safe and healthy. I’m finding great comfort in baking, but also literally can’t wait for the moment I get to hug and kiss all of my friends and family again...and maybe never let them go. #bfischbakes #bribakes #bakedbybri #homebaker #seattlebaker #seattlecakes #cake #cakedecorating #cakesofinstagram #cakestagram #quarantinebaking #bakingtherapy #stressbaking

“Chocolate Coconut Quick Bread” Ok, this is actually more like cake than bread. This recipe is from King Arthur Flour. They have a lot of great recipes especially for alternative flours which is a good thing since it’s difficult to find all purpose flour these days. It forces me to try new ways of baking which I normally wouldn’t do. This is made using coconut flour so it is also gluten free. Hope everyone is having a good week. #quickbread#coffeecake#coconut#coconutflour #chocolate#fortheliveofbaking#bakingday#feedfeedbaking#seattlefood#homemade#bakeyourworldhappy#simplethingsmadebeautiful#lifeandthyme#bakeandshare#eattheworld#seattlebaker#homebaker#forkyeah#thesugarfiles#eeeeeats #bakersgonnabake#breadlovers#thesimplethings

It was an honor to bring a little sugar to this “quarantine wedding.” I’m so proud of the bride and groom who showed great maturity and flexibility during these times of isolation.

Soooo I’m a few hours tardy to the party, but I wanted to make sure I didn’t totally forget to participate in #bakedinseattlecollab with my fellow Seattle bakers and creators while in quarantine. I don’t know about you but I haven’t baked THIS much I think ever. So many different baked goodies! . Thanks to @flawvorful for asking me to participate and thanks to you and @valiciouskitchen for hosting. This gave me the kick in the pants to create this bad boy that’s been on my list . Do you love pecan 🥧 pie?!?? It’s my fav! Buuuuuuuut I can’t stand the jelly filling made with corn syrup....it’s not for me! That texture, a big fat nope for me! So, when I saw the recipe for no corn syrup pecan pie by @bakerbynature, I had to try it out! I ended up burning the crust a bit, oops, but it was still tasty. Author Ashley uses bourbon in the recipe, but with quarantine and all I don’t have any...so this pie got Amaretto instead and I can’t say I was disappointed 😉! . .

My proudest feat yet. This crunchy crusty bread. Well worth the rise wait of 6 hours. Tasty plain, toasted into a gooey oniony grilled cheese, or as crunchy croutons. Flour water salt yeast by @kenforkish is a must if you’re looking to master bread!

We had plans to be in New Orleans this week. Instead, we brought a bit of New Orleans to our home. This weekend we made gumbo, Louisiana cocktails, and these beignets. Centuries of French pastry tradition by way of the Crescent City right in my own kitchen. We did not skimp on the powder sugar in true Louisiana fashion. This happened to be the first time we used our mini deep fryer we received as a wedding gift 3 1/2 years ago. You’ll see some more fried pastries from me. . . . . #neworleans #beignets #donuts #staycation #dreamingoffuturevacays #friedpastry #sugardonuts #southerncooking #homemade #bakersofinstagram #inmykitchen #weekendbaking #seattlebaker #baking

Cannot wait to make celebration cakes again after this quarantine craziness! This banana with salted caramel is absolutely decadent and those ranunculus so glorious.

Life has been a bit crazy these days hasn’t it? In our house we now have two children at home full-time which honestly hasn’t left me much time to focus on anything besides building legos and taking care of our 4 month old (and of course watching Tiger King when we do eventually head to bed.) We finally feel like we are getting slightly used to this temporary new normal which luckily came at the perfect time. I am getting back in the kitchen/studio and am excited to collaborate with my fellow Seattle bakers for the #bakedinseattlecollab . If you love chocolate and also happen to be gluten free or just want to add a gluten free dessert to your repertoire then this Double Chocolate Butterscotch Chip Skillet Cake is for you. (And I swear it doesn’t even taste gluten free!) Recipe below! • • • INGREDIENTS: 1 cup sugar ½ cup brown sugar 1 cup gluten free flour ½ cup cocoa powder 1½ teaspoons baking powder ¾ teaspoon salt ½ cup heavy whipping cream 1/4 cup melted butter 1/2 cup water 1/4 cup vegetable oil 1 teaspoon vanilla extract 1/2 cup chocolate chips 1/2 cup butterscotch chips 1. Preheat the oven to 350°F. Lightly grease a 9-inch skillet. • 2. In a large bowl, whisk the sugar, brown sugar, flour, cocoa powder, baking powder and salt. In a separate bowl whisk the whipping cream, melted butter, water, vegetable oil and vanilla. • 3. Add the wet mixture to the dry mixture and mix just until fully combined. Stir in chocolate and butterscotch chips. Pour the batter into the prepared skillet and spread into an even layer. • 4. Put mixture in oven and bake for 25 to 30 minutes. • 5. Let cake sit for 10 minutes then serve with ice cream. (Sharing optional!) • • • #bakedinseattlecollab #seattle #seattlebaker #seattlefoodie #seattlefoodphotographer #lodgecastiron #castironcooking #castirondessert #glutenfree #glutenfreebaking #feedfeedbaking #feedfeedglutenfree #imsomartha #bobsredmill #bobsredmillglutenfree #foodphotography #bonappetit #f52grams #foodstyling #foodie #wegotthisseattle #seattlewashington #adugovichphotography #todayshow #todayfood #king5 #king5evening

Rainbow mochi recipe is now live on the blog! It uses rice flour and not regular flour, so it’s perfect for #quarantinebaking, although I should mention it’s actually steamed and not baked at all 😅. Swipe to see two different rainbow styles! This recipe is part of the #BakedinSeattleCollab hosted by @flawvorful and @valiciouskitchen. Check their pages to see more fun desserts from Seattle area foodies!

Dreaming of this strawberry beauty from last weekend 😍 Sadly I was unable to celebrate a dear friend’s 30th Birthday with her due to our Stay at Home order. Thankfully I could do a socially distanced handoff with her sisters, on their way up. This cake had strawberry layers filled with cream cheese SMB swirled with strawberry jam, wrapped in watercolor SMB and topped with meringues. For the meringue kisses, I sifted some crushed freeze-dried strawberries over them before they baked to add some color and flavor. It all came together perfectly with some @sweetapolita sprinkles. #bfischbakes #bribakes #bakedbybri #homebaker #seattlebaker #seattlecakes #cake #cakedecorating #cakesofinstagram #cakestagram

Two days off means it’s time to bake. Buttermilk biscuits, doughnut holes from the left over dough, 4 loaves of sourdough bread in the works. I can feel myself gaining weight, just looking at it. #covıd19 #homemadebread #seattlebaker

We’re all in this together. Please, please, please stay home and do your part so we can stop the spread. It’s serious out there. Thanks to all the healthcare workers putting their lives on the line💕 . . . I’ve only decorated cookies a few times ever, but I’m trying to practice lately. I’m sure loving this rainbow cutter the most right now.
