Cranberry Scones

In my quest to reproduce scone I had in Ottawa at The Scone Witch, I tried the Irish soda bread recipe I used last year, Raisin Currant Scones

I substituted frozen cranberries for the currants, whipping cream for the milk. They were just about right!

Cook's Illustrated French Apple Cake

I've been dying to try this since I bought the magazine last week, so today, with it's Autumn-like weather, was the prefect day to bake it.

Clinton St Bakery Scones

 Since a trip to Ottawa this past July, where we were lucky enough to stumble on a bakery called "The Scone Witch". While reviews on their service have been rough (we didn't have any problems), their scones are out of this world.

Unfortunately, I haven't been able to duplicate the Currant Ginger scone I had, but it's set me off on a scone baking frenzy. This is the latest batch.

Tassajara Rye Egg Molasses Bread

This is the very last blog post in the month of "Molasses Madness", my family is getting tired of it. It's been fun, we've had a good run and everything has tasted delicious!

This loaf is made the same was as the Tassajara Egg Bread, switching out 1 cup of white flour for 1 cup of rye and substituting molasses for the honey. DELICIOUS!!

This recipe can be found amongst friends at yeastpotting, this week hosted by Tartine Bread Experiment.

Anadama Bread

Another loaf for "Molasses Madness!", this time Anadama Bread.

Tassajara Oat Bread With Molasses

It's still "Molasses Madness" here at KitchenGeisha!

I have no idea why I'm craving the taste of molasses, the season just seems to demand it. So I thought I would try the Tassajara Oatmeal Bread recipe, swapping out the whole Wheat flour for all white flour, and the honey for molasses.

I found that it kept the bread moister than the honey, and gave it a depth it didn't have before. There is none left. :)
