This month’s Mystery Box theme is the color orange. Totally appropriate and delicious. The recipe I decided on could have been made with sweet potato, squash or pumpkin, and since I decided against sweet potato and couldn’t find canned squash in my neighborhood, I went with good old pumpkin. Oh, pumpkin. I do adore you. […]

The August 2009 Daring Bakers’ challenge was hosted by Angela of A Spoonful of Sugar and Lorraine of Not Quite Nigella. They chose the spectacular Dobos Torte based on a recipe from Rick Rodgers’ cookbook Kaffeehaus: Exquisite Desserts from the Classic Caffés of Vienna, Budapest, and Prague.
This is the first of I don’t know how many Iron Cupcake entries I’ll get to this month.

I feel fairly confident in saying that every single person (at least in the US) who has ever made, eaten or even mentioned macarons has had to explain themselves. No, they are NOT macaroons. So stop looking at me like I sprouted a third eye when I go on about how delicate and finicky they […]
Don’t let this recipe color your opinion of me. Yes, it is the fifth Iron Cupcake entry of mine in a row that contains alcohol. I promise I am not an alcoholic! In fact, I rarely even drink anymore and would generally much rather bake with any alcohol I do have. The only reason this […]
