Challah

I baked this challah a lot of times, because I just love it. The last time I baked it I prepared the dough and to rise the first time I put it in a fridge for the night. The next morning I took it out, formed challah and let rise it the second time, then baked it. So that morning we had delicious breakfast with still warm challah.

Atšaldytos tešlos sausainiai su graikiniais riešutais

Chilled dough cookies with walnuts

I have no time to do nothing 🙂 My job is taking all my time. Good news that it will not last forever. So I have no time to bake cookies or pies, but it doesn’t stop me from wanting some sweets. And these cookies are perfect – you can form a log and then put in a freezer for later bake, when you will have no spare time.

Small cheese pies

Delicious little pies. If I have Vienna sausages, I put them in the filling too and all you have to do is to take tomato sauce for the great food 🙂

These healthy muffins are extremely moist and delicious.

Keksiukai su uogomis

Muffins with berries

It was really impulsive baking. I saw them in a magazine for parents in a section “Baking together”. 🙂 Together? So I asked if my kids want to bake something and they happily agreed. So I just measured all ingredients in purpose that my kids were not bored, and they started to work. The result came out perfect – smell was fantastic, and the taste was remarkable – berries gave some refreshing sourness and banana gave moisture. Even next day they were very good and left over disappeared too quickly. So I’m thinking to repeat them very soon again.

Pumpkin blondies with chocolate and pecans

It was the first time when cake dissapeared so quickly. And even more – almost everyone asked for the recipe. 🙂 I was really pleased. So I write down here the recipe without a queue (in the queue there are five more recipes).
