Bundt cakes is an American phenomenon inspired by the traditional European cake Gugelhupf. Bundt cakes. There are infinite variations of bundt cakes, but here is the absolutely best bundt cake recipe.
I follow an instagrammer and baker called Maurizio Leo. He’s an amazing sourdough baker, but one day he posted a picture of a cake that had the most wonderful design. A sort of three dimensional shape that I had never seen before in a cake.
He wrote in the comments that it was made by a company called Nordicware, so I went into research mode and I found their site and they had so many different options. I just wanted them all.
In most countries bread is made with variety of milled wheat gains. In Scandinavia it is relatively cold, so a grain like rye is much better suited for the climate. So that means that rye flour is commonly used in a bunch of different ways and very commonly in bread. This is my Danish rye bread recipe.
Here in Denmark rye bread is a staple of our cuisine. It’s very common to eat it every day for lunch. It’s dark, it’s malty, it’s usually full of delicious moist seeds.
For me, there’s nothing better than bread.. and cheese! So a bread with cheese must be the ultimate bread. That’s the what I set out to test with this bread. Here is my recipe for sourdough bread with cheddar, oregano and smoked paprika.
Cheddar is one of the most popular cheeses in the world. It’s a pretty good cheese that fits perfectly with other foods and in a sandwich. Personally I like cheeses with more taste, so I’ve used a sharp cheddar in this recipe. If you don’t like sharp cheese you can substitute with a mild cheddar.
Most people love a good burger and I am absolutely one of them. A great burger requires a great burger bun. The problem is that the store bought ones are usually just a step up from cardboard. Often when you try to bake your own they seem to turn out a bit heavy and with a hard crust. Enter this brioche burger buns recipe which solves all of those problems.
We love a good burger at home, but we don’t really have any great bakeries around where I live. All you can get is supermarket buns. In the later years, the quality of those buns have actually increased significantly, but it can never compete with an artisan bun made with love.
Twinkies are an iconic American snack cake. They’ve honestly never been available here in Denmark, but I tried them. They seem very factory-like, but I like the idea of delicious cake with a fluffy marshmallow filling, so I decided to make my own in the style of a bundt cake. Here is my Twinkie Bundt Recipe.
The Twinkie backstory
Twinkies were invented by a man named James Dewar in 1930 and were originally filled with banana cream. During the second world war, bananas were rationed, so a switch was made to vanilla filling, which proved to be very popular.
