September Baking

My project to bake 52 things in 2013 got stalled in August when jam and ice cream took over - I don’t think either of them quite count as baking somehow. Besides I don’t have photos. I got back with the baking in September.

  • Coconut MacaroonsCoconut Macaroons

I used to love these as a kid, did we have them at school lunches on rare days or am I misremembering? They are still good. There is something magic about baking that has to be stuck to rice paper.

  • Bakewell Tart IIBakewell Tart

This began as something else in a pastry case, with a bit of jam and a topping. By the time I’d added lots of ground almonds and changed the recipe I had pretty much reinvented the bakewell tart (like the proper version from Bakewell, not the iced shop version).

  • New York Cheesecake IINew York Cheesecake With cinnamon blueberries on the top. I made this when my brother was visiting so I wouldn’t have to eat the whole thing myself, but there wouldn’t be so many people that I wouldn’t get to eat nearly the whole thing myself. Takes careful planning, this baking lark.

  • Lemon MacaroonsLemon Macaroons

I was using up the egg whites from my first lot of egg custard based ice cream here. Practically forced to make macaroons.

  • Pistachio MacaroonsPistachio Macaroons

Also using up egg whites from ice cream making. Most of them got eaten before I got the photo taken. Not all by me.

That’s 38/52, only just slightly behind schedule. The project is looking good!
