Hey Y’all, it’s the Weekly Bake…

OMG, The English Baker’s gone all American…

Thought I’d try a couple of real American classics this week – not exactly low cal, but quite frankly have you seen the weather out there?  I think bikini time is a little way off yet…

Chocolate Cake Donuts

Number One American Classic:  The Cake Donut (spelt the American way too, you’ll notice).  Why is it a “cake” donut?  Well, the regular (note the American English) donut is made with yeast, and is therefore technically a bread.  The Cake Donut, on the other hand, is leavened with baking powder, hence, it’s a cake.  So what does this mean taste-wise ? Well, simply that these donuts are the more delicious and considerably less chemical version of the ones you buy at the store (American English again, what has come over me?) The ones in the picture are covered in a chocolate frosting, but vanilla is possible too, or even chocolate and coconut if you’re feeling a bit tropical.

Double Choc Chip Cookies

Number Two American Classic: Well, it’s the Chocolate Chip Cookie.  Not exactly beautiful (my kids call them cow pat cookies actually), but there is a certain charm in their knobbliness and they are SOOOOOOOO moreish.  Slightly crunchy around the edges, soft and squishy in the middle…’nuff said.  The ones pictured and made with milk and white chocolate chips, but a chocolate and pecan version is available too…

Cake Donuts (Chocolate, Vanilla, or Chocolate & Coconut): €15 for 6
Chocolate Chip Cookies (Milk & White Choc Chip, Choc Chip & Pecan): 10€ for 6

How to order:

  1. Could I order the cookies please? For delivery at the office if you are doing a Schuman drop off. Andy’s extension is 5429 for reception to call him.

    I have been meaning to email to say how lovely the orange and almond buns were, the gooey sugary-ness at the bottom made them even tastier! Also the gingerbread was a hit – definitely one for your weekly bakes!
