Oh my, oh my. My fingers just got so itchy to bake :)
Something with yeast, yes yes.
I got a bit jealous, too :) Girls from other blogs were making buns, rolls, bread, croissants… Gosh, and what about me? :)
Straight to the kitchen, quick kneading, quick crumble making… and finally this beautiful smell of a yeast cake all around… To tell you, it’s something that can’t be described… For me, it’s just the smell of cosiness, home and love.
So here is the second one!
I’ll risk to say… it’s even more delicious than the first one ;)
As I mentioned before, I made it from the same dough I used in Cinnamon Plait, with slight changes when it comes to the filling. Apart from cinnamon and sugar, I also added ground walnuts and this composition turned out to be (as I call it) a baking bingo!
The thing that hasn’t changed is (one of the most delicious) crispy crust ever! I could eat all of it!
If you’re worried that walnuts can add this bitterness to the taste, leave your fears behind – it is just the way it should be, meaning perfect! :)
… And plaiting itself was sort of easier this time ;P
All in all, looking and tasting at its best :)
Made today, posted today!
Why? Oh my! Because it’s soooooo delicious!
As usual, I needed at least several weeks to get myself together and bake it :) I looked through dozens of blogs, checking on doughs’ recipes mostly and… to tell you, I was stunned with the pictures of the plaits I’d seen :) Simply beautiful :) Well, I ended up using the most reliable recipe ever, that is a recipe from Moje Wypieki :)
From the original recipe I decided to steal the idea for the dough only. And I’m telling you, it’s amazing! Yet, the proportions given made me make two smaller plaits instead of one big :) The second plait soon on Sarenka too :))
When it comes to the Cinnamon Plait, for me it could be all covered with this yummy crispy yummy cinnamon crust! Soooooooo good it is :D
And I’m terribly sorry for my chaotic writing today but a moment ago Kamil-the-ski-jumper won a gold medal in the Olympic Games!!! I’m still so excited!
Well, time for the plait :D
Alright alright, I know that it looks more like a football but… the main idea was to make a cake which would be black and white and… here it is :)
That was the day when I felt like eating… something – yes, something… because I really didn’t know what to eat exactly… You probably know these silly cravings :)
While browsing the net, I found this Chess-cake and suddenly it was decided – that’s the cake to be made! Let me say that these were eyes eating mostly but… that’s quite essential too, isn’t it? :)
And I won’t be pretending that this is one of the most delicious cakes I’ve ever eaten. It’s very tasty with this nice black and white effect – that’s why I would recommend to check it out :)
