Butter Haters avert your eyes, because yesterday my girlfriends R, P, H and I baked our little hearts out at the vintage baking class at the gorgeous Agrarian Kitchen.
I'm not going to lie- it was pretty intense. Kind of like Lord of the Flies without the conch shell. And a hell of a lot more Butter. We went through kilos of the stuff and 12 dozen eggs!
Between them, these two baked 8 things:
It was kind of freezing. Which I luffed.
This carrot cake was 11/10 and it really was Ye Olde Vintage Baking because we mixed and grated everything by hand.
Vegetarians don't be afraid but this is Suet. I know. That's something you don't see every day.
And it really did provide a superior pastry for the jam roly poly.
What it lacked in perfection it made up for in taste. I lived on the edge and used marmalade. Try it. You won't be disappointed.
Hardcore Cook Book Envy:
This was a black berry short bread tart that you needed 500 grams of sour cream and 5 cups of flour to make:
It was Delicious. And the last word in Comfort.
Anyway, it was exhausting but fun. Stay well and Bake Hard.
