Wake and Bake: Irish Tea Brack (Tea-Soaked Raisin Bread)

Sweets Carrie Vasios Mullins Post a comment

When people think of Irish baked goods, they often think of scones and soda bread. I love both those things, but the truth is that Ireland has an awesome bread baking tradition, ranging from hearty yeasted breads to fruit-filled quick breads. This is one of the latter—specifically a type of brack (from the Irish word brac, meaning spotted). The key is soaking raisins in tea overnight. More

Wake and Bake: Chocolate Walnut Povitica

Sweets Carrie Vasios Mullins 3 comments

I had never heard of this bread before, but when you suddenly have enough of something to feed a small army, you do a little research. Generically known as a "nut roll," povitica is an Eastern European yeasted bread made from a buttery, brioche-like dough rolled around a sugar and nut filling. This version, made with chocolate and walnuts, is a little time intensive to prepare but totally sweet and satisfying in the end. More

Wake and Bake: Pumpkin Cornbread

Sweets Carrie Vasios Mullins Post a comment

If, like me, you're in need of a bit of the Thanksgiving spirit, I offer a two-pronged remedy. First, find A Charlie Brown Thanksgiving on Netflix and watch it. Second, find a cast iron skillet and make some cornbread. There's something about mixing up this easy bread and baking it in a heavy, seasoned iron pan that feels very Americana and pioneer and Laura Ingalls Wilder all rolled into one. More

Spider Cake (New England Skillet Corncake)

Serious Eats Alexandra Penfold Post a comment

The outside of the Spider Cake gets golden brown and slightly crisp in the oven while the inside stays tender. One of the unique attributes of the Spider Cake as opposed to your garden-variety cornbread is the thin stripe of creamy custard that forms in the center of the cake as it cooks. More
