There has been no way of finding time to put the posts up-to-date, so I will quickly try to put today some of our last cooking projects online. First I will review the last Daring Baker Challenges.
November´s challenge was to make a crostata. Just with the same recipe we have always used at home: the one of Artusi, which can be found here.
We made to of them and took them to work. One was made with pastry cream and the other with jam. The jam was a bit too sweet as it condensates in the oven, otherwise they were very good as usual.
December´s challenge was to make Stollen. Stollen is a typical german treat for christmas and we had already thought of making it this year, so it was a nice surprise and a great challenge. We made six of them, to give them as presents. We tried two of them. The one we took to Spain was great, also the one we took to Italy, but that one was already a bit too dry, nice with tea though. The recipe is a keeper, we will anyhow try next year an original german recipe.
