Irish Barmbrack


Irish barmbrack, a traditional Irish sweet bread with whiskey-soaked fruit and candied orange peel.

We've talked about the Great British Baking Show before. I'm totally and completely obsessed with it. No spoilers here, but do you remember when cutie pie Andrew made his family's barmbrack bread?

I was immediately curious about it.
1. It's an Irish bread, and we love all things Irish around here.
2. Paul Hollywood gave Andrew "the look" when he said the bread only had one rise. Aaaaaand, Paul had to eat (ha!) his words when the bread was perfectly baked.

Barmbrack is a lightly sweet, spiced Irish bread studded with raisins and candied orange peel. (Remember that candied orange peel from a few weeks ago? This is where we're using it.) The dried fruit is typically soaked in either tea or whiskey before adding to the dough. I chose whiskey, obviously.

Trader Joe's PB & J Bars review

Well guys, this is Jack's last Trader Joe's review before he leaves for college.
(How is that even possible?)

We're a little unsure where this series will go from here. It has been suggested that I mail Jack TJ's goodies and have him review from school, but I really don't want to be THAT mom. ;) (I'm already THAT mom in so many other ways.) I'll be sending him Trader Joe's treats in care packages, but just for his enjoyment. Mr. E and I may do a Trader Joe's "he said/she said" version. Please leave suggestions in the comments.

You can't HANDLE the Bundt Cake!

Cocoa Bundt Cake...a rich and moist chocolate cake with a shiny chocolate glaze. Easy to make and perfect for sharing! | bakeat350.net

Actually, I really hope you CAN handle the Bundt cake. I know I posted a Bundt cake recipe just 9 days ago for Jack's 1/2 birthday. Since then, though, I made another 1/2 birthday cake for a friend, and I just can't NOT share it with you guys.

This cake is a Cocoa Bundt Cake. It's simple, but it's oh so good. Super moist, very rich, and topped with a shiny cocoa glaze...and some chocolate chips just in case you needed a bit more chocolate.

Trader Joe's Chocolatey Coated Chocolate Chip Dunkers review | bakeat350.net

Before Trader Joe's came to Texas, before they opened in my neighborhood, I visited my very first Trader Joe's in Phoenix. This was my first purchase....

Trader Joe's Chocolatey Coated Chocolate Chip Dunkers. Here we are, many years and many reviews later, and we haven't reviewed them.
