Brown Butter Sage Skillet Cornbread

Brown Butter Sage Skillet Cornbread | The subtle flavors of brown butter and sage make this cornbread extra special! Recipe from Bakerita.com WHY have I never had a cast iron skillet before? I’m seriously way behind the times on this one, but I’ve been really missing out. UNTIL NOW.

I really didn’t think it was possible to be that excited about a piece of cookware, but here I am. I got a 10″ cast iron skillet a few weeks ago for my birthday at Sur La Table (thanks Dad!), and haven’t been able to stop using it ever since. Confession: I also ordered another 6-inch one from Amazon. It’s adorable and perfect for many things (*ahem* SKILLET COOKIES – coming soon). [Read more...]

Apple Cider Caramel | made with delicious fresh cider for a burst of fall flavors in your mouth! Recipe from bakerita.com

Apple Cider Caramels

Apple Cider Caramel | made with delicious fresh cider for a burst of fall flavors in your mouth! Recipe from bakerita.com There’s something incredibly satisfying about making your own candy. I always feel way more successful after an awesome batch of caramel or toffee than I do about a great batch of cookies – but the truth is, there’s no need for it to feel like an accomplishment, because it’s really not that hard!

(But you should still totally feel great about making these, because they’re awesome and everyone will love ‘em).

As long as you have an accurate candy thermometer, you’re in business. Candy does require a close eye, but only for a few minutes, and it all comes together so quickly that as long as you have all your ingredients put together before you start the recipe, you’ll be golden. [Read more...]

Pumpkin Crumb Cake

Pumpkin Crumb Cake // a super thick crumb layer over a spiced pumpkin cake! Recipe from bakerita.com
Happy October! Now that’s officially pumpkin month, I had to share a pumpkin recipe – one that’s loaded with spices and warmth and goodness and pecans and LOTS of crumbles. This pumpkin crumb cake does just that ^^.

Also, when I first made this, I called it a coffee cake. Then I thought, well that has a whole lot of crumbs…maybe it’s a crumb cake. Then I realized I had absolutely nooo idea what the difference between a crumb cake and a coffee cake was. So, I asked Google, and found some answers. [Read more...]

Banana Nut Bars with Brown Sugar Frosting | recipe from bakerita.com

Banana Nut Bars with Brown Sugar Frosting

Banana Nut Bars with Brown Sugar Frosting | recipe from bakerita.com I don’t know about you guys, but we always have extra too-brown bananas. In a house of six girls, we all tend to get confused about whose bananas are whose and end up with a pile of brown bananas waiting to be a) used in a baked good or b) thrown away. I try to use them up as much as possible so we’re not wasters, and I’m realizing that bananas taste darn good in waaay more baked goods than just banana bread.

Case in point: banana nut bars with brown sugar frosting. These are no regular banana nut bars – these are fudgy and dense and full of delicious banana flavor. They have a healthy dose of cinnamon and nutmeg because I’m all about fall spices right now, and I love the added warmth the spices bring to the bars. The nuts add the crunchiness that I love and crave in most baked goods, but obviously if you’re anti nuts in your baked goods, feel free to leave ‘em out. And then of course, you have the super delicious banana flavor from that ripe banana. It adds a nice texture and an additional level of sweetness to the bar. [Read more...]

Brown Sugar Apple Baked Brie in Puff Pastry - it's the perfect appetizer! | Recipe from Bakerita.com

Baked brie is seriously one of my favorite things in the world, and with apples, pecans, and puff pastry…it’s ridiculously delicious!

Cheese is my ultimate food vice, especially melted cheese. People who don’t like cheese just truly confuse and baffle me, and I really feel for people can’t eat it. Personally, I could easily demolish an entire wedge of brie by myself. It’s definitely one of my favorite cheeses, and when I was studying in London the Tomato Basil & Brie Sandwich from Pret a Manger was my favorite. I ate that sandwich at least twice a week, mostly because of all the brie. Ugh, it’s just too good. [Read more...]

Florentine cookies, lacey cookies, dark chocolate almond cookies…whatever you want to call them, these thin, crunchy, chocolate-filled cookies are absolutely melt-in-your-mouth delicious.

One of my housemates, Ally, absolutely adores these Dark Chocolate Almond Laceys from Trader Joe’s. They’re thin, crunchy, taste-like-toffee cookies, sandwiched with rich dark chocolate, and they’re so so good! Of course, after a few weeks of watching her eat them, I decided I needed to recreate them. [Read more...]
