Future Bakes

  • apple struedel
  • Dutch Baby
  • Cardamom buns
  • Lemon bars
  • key lime pie
  • pumpkin pie
  • Eton mess — "In recent times, "Eton mess" has often been used by commentators in the media to describe political infighting within the UK Conservative Party over issues such as Brexit."
  • Karpatka (polish mountain cake)
    • I make the last step of filling by whipping the butter and then gradually adding cold pudding/custard. However, the way the recipe above does it seems easier and quicker. It just will not be fluffy but that’s ok.
    • Also, the pan (or parchment paper) shouldn’t be greased bc the sticky dough will be impossible to spread. I use a thick flat cookie pan (x2), no grease, take it out when golden (I don’t leave it in the oven w open door like they say above), and take the crust off ass soon as it cools of a bit. Otherwise, it gets stuck to the bottom ant it is too hard to peel it off... if that happens, you need to warm up the bottom - back in the oven or hover over stove.
    • Oh, and I use 1/2 corn or potato starch an 1/2 regular wheat flour. It give a bit more texture without tasting floury.
