BWD: Buttermilk Scones


My second August post for Baking with Dorie is one of my favorite, and frequently baked, recipes:  Buttermilk Scones.  While I try to keep some in the freezer for a quick bread-fix, they disappear way too quickly.  I use buttermilk from Trader Joe’s, and, for what it’s worth, it lasts forever, so I always have buttermilk available.  Sure, I have the powdered stuff (for backup), but it’s just not the same.  Upon checking the freezer, it seems I need to bake some more!

Inside Out Coconut Buns for the Babes



Our Kitchen of the Month for August is Aparna, of My Diverse Kitchen.  Aparna asked us to make Inside-Out Coconut Buns, a delicious sweet roll with a buttery coconut filling.  


The initial proofing took a bit longer than the recipe said, but the rolls, themselves, rose within the specified time limit.  I checked out different shaping techniques and settled on this twisty one with swirls of filling peeking out from the roll.


I tried to limit myself to one bun at a time, so it’s a good thing the recipe only made six!  I loved the sweet dough and the yummy coconut filling.


Go to Aparna’s website to get the background story for these rolls as well as the recipe.  They are fairly straightforward to make, so it’s well worth it to set aside some time to create such a delicious treat.

TWD: Tomato Tart


Recently, I attended a Sunday brunch potluck for my quilt guild.  I brought the Tomato Tart as a savory offering.  The sliced tomatoes were placed decoratively upon a bed of honey-mustard.  You can adjust the mixture, making it sweeter or more tangy, depending on your preference.  For the crust, I used the savory galette dough, and for the cheese, I used my favorite blend, Quattro Formaggio from Trader Joe’s.  There were a few pieces left over, which I enjoyed eating the next day.
