Double Baked Almond Croissants Two Ways - Pumpkin Pie and Chocolate Hazelnut

Read Article →

Have you ever had a double baked almond croissant? You might have seen them in bakeries or patisseries and thought to yourself, "I am going to get me one of those things". If not, you really should try one. 

From a business standpoint, doubles (as we call them in our kitchen) are a great way to use up unsold croissants from the day before. However, our doubles are so popular that we purposely bake more croissants than we need (sometimes up to 60 more per day) just so we can make them into doubles. We keep ours traditional - just almond cream and almonds. Classic, you know? But at home, I like to mess around with flavours and create something new and different. That's how the Pumpkin Pie Double Baked Almond Croissant and the Chocolate Hazelnut Double Baked Almond Croissant came about. It's a heck of a long name, I know, but what can you do.

Chocolate Brioche Wreaths

Read Article →

I know that I sometimes post some pretty complicated and difficult desserts on this blog. I work as a pastry cook, so making a 4 component dessert at home is pretty straight forward for me. Things that can sometimes scare a home baker, like making caramel or tempering chocolate, are as easy as can be for me. I don't mean to brag, but I'm trying to say that I know the stuff I put on here is not always easy for everyone to make.

Except these. These are easy for everyone to make.

Milk Chocolate and Passion Fruit Marshmallows

Read Article →

I love marshmallows, but only in hot chocolate. And only if they're homemade. Okay, sometimes I make hot chocolate with a mix that has tiny little marshmallows already in it, but they're really small so it doesn't count. 

But seriously, homemade marshmallows are infinitely better than store bought and they're easy and don't even require a whole lot of ingredients! And you can customize the flavour to almost aaaanything.

Pumpkin Custard Pie

Read Article →

Next week is Thanksgiving (for us here in Canada) and while my family and I don't usually get too into celebrating this holiday, I know that some people go nuts for it, like I go nuts for Christmas. And while holidays are not usually the time to stray away from the classics, I think this pie is a great alternative to the traditional pumpkin pie!
