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

 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!
