Deliciously Vintage

Part of my 30 before 30 was to make my way through the recipes in one of my cook books. This was definitely a big undertaking, and could have been a #30before30 list in itself! I love baking though, so this was good fun and something I probably would have been doing anyway. Since I started my new job, I've had a lot less time to spare baking after work or at the weekend, so I haven't had as much success in recent weeks to get through the last few recipes that I wanted to. I was given a madeline baking tray for Christmas so I will be able to get that done - which I plan to do possibly this weekend (if I can get my essay draft done early enough!) Then I have an Opera cake recipe to tackle, which would definitely take an entire day as it's quite a difficult one! I decided at the beginning of this challenge that I wasn't going to include recipes that I had baked before on my list, so below are the new cakes etc that I made over the past year, and at the end the ones I haven't got around to yet! I have enjoyed this challenge and will keep on with this one - as I will do with my other 30before30 list! 


The cookbook in question


Where it all started with the battenburg!



Jammy Dodgers, one of my triumphs!


Peanut butter and jelly cake. Not to my taste but a big hit with the NYU students!


Dorset Apple Cake. A little soggy :-/


Kugelhopf (Bundt cake). Requested a second time at work, but not one of my faves!


Another highlight - Vanilla Chiffon Cake for my friend May's birthday!


Some incredibly small eccles cakes


Pecan Pie... a bit of a disaster because all of my family and I thought this one was far too sweet!

Not pictured: Cornish Fairings, whoopie pies, chelsea buns, lemon drizzle cakes, angel cake, bakewell tart, 

And what do I have left:

Florentine biscuits, Millionaire's shortbread, snickerdoodles, Madeline cakes, cinnamon rolls, fat rascals, hummingbird cake, opera cake, eclairs.
