August 2015 A Note from Marcy



August 2015 A Note from Marcy

Free Sour Cream Peaches 'N Almond Crunch Muffins to kick off the mellow days of August. So summary, so good.

Dear Bakers and Friends,

Just a short note and some recipes to share as I head off for a week's vacation.

It's still warm and balmy outside but I am delighted to offer some short 'bakes' to kick off the last month of summer.


Warm wishes,

Marcy Goldman
Master Baker, Author

Peach Smash Pie FREE
Smashingly good, fast and ambrosial – this pie takes a unique method, fresh summery peaches and produces: heaven.

Sour Cream Peaches 'N Almond Crunch Muffins
Almonds, oatmeal, vanilla and a shower of fresh peach chunks tucked into a summery muffin. An all-time BB favorite.

Blue Ribbon Apple Chunky Chocolate Bundt Cake
I’ve made a version of this cake for years – it is one from my personal repertoire of favorites. It’s moist, flavorful and replete with hunks of chocolate, sweet raisins and chunks of both semi-sweet and milk chocolate. Although it says ‘bundt’ cake, do as I do, not as I say –use an angel food cake pan for best results.

 French Bakery Raspberry Buns
Beautiful buns with fresh summer taste!

 Arcade Fire Deep Chocolate Cake with White Lightening Icing
This is one amazing cake – much like the Indie, now-famous band it was created for. Imagine a dark, dense chocolate cake – a hunk of cake, all topped with an old-fashioned white, butter-based icing like Woolworth’s and diners used to sell. Don’t bother washing the knife you cut this with; just leave it in the cake pan.

Chicken Caesar Salad With Asiago Cheese
Chicken Caesar salad, done right, makes a lot of sense. Pay attention to detail in this combination and you will have a stellar salad that hits all the right notes. Fresh Parmesan is a must always!
