Winter baking schedule

For the past several months, I’ve been posing irregular updates on what I plan to bake for the coming months. This started with my “summer baking project”, in which I polled co-workers on which recipes they were most interested in trying, then started baking the most popular choices, two a week. As the summer ended, I scaled back to one recipe a week, and the last couple of months I’ve done even less than that. This post will be the final update on the original set of recipes, and includes what I’m currently planning on doing for the rest of the winter. As always, this is subject to change.

Unscheduled

That leaves the following recipes from my original list unaccounted-for:

  • Flour: Double Chocolate & Orange Semifreddo (as a frozen dessert, should probably have been left off the list — I wasn’t going to be bringing this in to the office to share even if I did make it)
  • Brody: Chile Cha-Cha Brownies
  • Brody: Chocolate-Raspberry Torte [2 requests]
  • Brody: White Chocolate–Orange Pound Cake
  • Luchetti: Walnut Cake with Chocolate-Orange Sabayon and Vanilla Crème Anglaise [2 requests, but dropped due to excessive coffee flavor]
  • Moosewood: Dark Chocolate Layer Cake (substitute frosting) [1 request]
  • Ovenly: Brooklyn Blackout Cake
  • Whole Grain Baking: Banana Crunch Cake
  • Whole Grain Baking: Peanut Butter Cream Pie [2 requests]

Some of these are possible mid-season replacements or may be doable as a midweek project if I feel ambitious in the fall. Likewise, the following recipes (which really should be listed on my Recipe Pointers page) were not included on the original list of recipes, but might get added later on, or swapped for something else to use up perishable ingredients:

  • Bloom: Butterscotch Blondies
  • Bloom: Nutty Caramel Bars
  • Brody: Peanut Butter Cups
  • Brody: Denver Chocolate Pudding Cake
  • Costantino: La Deliziosa
  • Costantino: Dolci di Noci
  • Costantino: Barchiglia (chocolate-glazed almond tart with pear)
  • Flour: Double Chocolate Cookies
  • Greenspan/Hermé: Chocolate Sparklers
  • Medrich: Chocolate Cheesecake
  • Whole Grain Baking: Honey Cake
