Soft.Cinnamon.Rolls. These were a treat to have with a cup of tea or coffee. They were not too sweet (some may find it not sweet enough as compared to the store bought ones) as they were filled with only dark brown sugar. The higher content of molasses in the dark brown sugar gave the sweetness a more complex flavour. I really liked these rolls and made another batch the following weekend.

This sourdough focaccia was really fun to make and it is very easy to handle for a high hydration (70%) dough. The bread was pretty looking and very tasty when dotted with vine ripened tomatoes and rosemary.
I loved how gassy, light and soft the dough was when I dimpled it with my fingers. This left a trail of big and small bubbles on the surface of the dough. A delightful sight. To me, focaccia is likened to a fluffier cousin of a pizza.
I made the dough the day before and chilled it for 11 hours and bake it the next day.

|Specks of orange zest and cranberries|
What do I like about these scones? They are buttery, crumbly, moist and my kitchen smells like Christmas as they bake. The addition of orange zest + cranberries = smell of Christmas time.
This is a one bowl recipe and mixing was done using hands, therefore washing up afterwards was kept to a minimal. The scones can be made ahead and freezes well.

This made a real, good treat for my weekend breakfast. It was assembled the evening before and left overnight in the fridge to develop. An early morning bake ushered in a delicious start to my weekend.

Beauty is in the simple things. It is how a feel about this simple cake. Simple to make with no fuss in its presentation. Full of apple goodness and tasted even better the next day.
