Maple Pecan Chiffon Cake with Brown Butter Icing

As sophisticated sounding as the title implies, the making of Julie Richardson's Vintage Cakes recipe is fairly simple. And the result is a maple pecan chiffon that combines grownup textures with child-friendly tastes. The cake is fluffy and light like an angel food cake. The dense, concentrated brown butter topping offers a fine contrast. 

Mini Scones

These little gems are adapted from British celebrity chef, Mary Berry’s Baking Bible.  Slightly less sweet than other scone recipes in my collection, these are perfect for tucking in lunch meats.  Or enjoying with a bit of almond butter and a sprinkle of blueberries.

Japanese Yuzu Citrus Ice Cream

Yuzu is a cross between a sour mandarin orange and a lemon. (Some say it has a lemon-lime flavor.) Creamy and rich there is a sparkle of  lemon flavor in this ice cream.

Matcha Green Tea Ice Cream

S'More Ice Cream

Toss a few Golden Grahams cereal bits together with mini marshmallows and chocolate chips and you've got S'More Ice Cream fun! The how-to is adapted from recipes in the Momofuku Milk Bar cookbook by Christina Tosi.

There is a little prep work involved such as making Graham Cracker Cereal. However, the effort is worth every bite of smooth, S'More goodness.

Fairy Cakes

The birthplace of fairy cakes is Great Britain (where it was thought that this petite sponge cake was the perfect size for a party of fairies.) I’ve adapted a recipe from Mary Berry’s Baking Bible.

This recipe is adapted from Jessie Oleson's The Secret Lives of Baked Goods.

Tamago Toji (Egg Soup)

My friend, Akio-san, is spoiled (deservedly so) with his wife Takako-san's meals. Sometimes she is called away to deal with family business in Japan. So, Akio-san is left to fend for himself. He very generously shared this easy yet stomach-warming recipe for egg soup (tamago toji) with spinach recipe.
