Nurt Thurs – Baking

Chocolate cherry cake

If baking is any labor at all, it’s a labor of love.

A love that gets passed from generation to generation.

I’ve been baking a lot these days, so much that my older son asked me to stop baking or we will be too fat to go outside when the stay home ends 🙂
I enjoy baking and trying new recipes, love the smell in the kitchen when I’m baking. My mom used to bake a cake every Saturday afternoon when I was a kid. I remember that my brother had already moved out, but on Saturdays evening he would stop by to have a piece of cake. I guess I got the baking gene from her!

Bread and pizza dough are my weakness in the kitchen, I can’t bake them. I’ve tried many recipes but they don’t work. I’d love to have fresh bread from the oven these days and I tried one recipe I got online this week, but the dough didn’t rise! I want something simple, nothing fancy, only a piece of bread to spread some butter on it and enjoy with a cup of coffee. Please, share with me if have a simple one.

Softness that melts in the mouth

 I got the recipe for this delicious chocolate cherry cake from IG @silviacollocaofficial, it’s super easy to make, and interesting that instead of butter and milk we use olive oil and yogurt!

It’s all about a balancing act between time, temperature and ingredients:

That’s the art of baking.

  1. I love olive oil cakes. So delicious and, I tell myself, healthier than using butter. My husband and I joke that they will have to roll us out of the house when isolation is over. But, like you, I am trying recipes I’ve never tried before. I need to know what’s good! 😀

    1. It was the first time I used the olive oil for a cake, and I liked it! Oh yes! I think everybody will gain few pounds during this time with all the gyms closed and the ovens on all the time. 🙂
