All desserts posted at Go Eat Your Bread with Joy are listed here by date in descending order. From muffins to cookies, whether in a Cook the Cookbooks series or profile piece, each recipe is made up of real-food ingredients.
If you aren’t already familiar with how to make date paste, here’s what you need to know: It’s essentially a four-step process. Trying it gives you a new valuable player in your unrefined-sweetener game. It doesn’t take much time, and it offers all kinds of uses. Here’s how!
To anyone who’s used unrefined sweeteners, tried a sugar-free diet or blended raw ingredients to make desserts, Medjool dates are nothing new. Plump and meaty, they’re sweet enough to flavor the crust of raw brownies and beneficial enough to be recommended to pregnant women in their third trimesters. Use them to make date paste, and they become even more versatile.
When you’re looking for a fun, kid-friendly project this month, say hello to simple, no-chill sugar cookies. You can blend them in a food processor (and let kids press “pulse”), roll out the dough without chilling it (and let kids cut out shapes) and be enjoying fresh-baked treats within an hour. The ingredients are unrefined, the process is doable and, even better, the recipe is so short, you can memorize it.
When it comes to baking with kids–in December or any time of year–the process is as easy as 1, 2, 3. Or, to put it more accurately, 2, 1, 1/2.Read More
September’s half over, there are mums at the store and I’m two pies into the season that hasn’t even started yet. You with me? There’s nothing that says “hello, fall” like your favorite pumpkin pie. Here’s what you need to know to make the one on repeat over here.
If you ask me, pumpkin pie starts with homemade pumpkin purée. Of course you can use canned purée, nothing wrong with that, but there’s something special about making it yourself. The way the skin softens and the flesh melts; the whipped, velvety texture of the filling fresh out of the blender–it’s like the pie is unfolding before you, asking to be made.Read More
Nothing says “Happy National Blueberry Month” like a no-bake blueberry pie. This version features two layers: a five-ingredient chocolate crust and a six-ingredient blueberry cream filling. Rather than cheese, the cream comes from cashews. Rather than baking in the oven, the pie chills in the freezer. It’s gluten-free, dairy-free and takes maybe 15 minutes to blend. Try this sweet treat this season!
Whether it’s because you’ve spent the day at the pool, you’re away on vacation or your house doesn’t have air-conditioning, no-bake desserts are a must for the summer months. There’s no need to turn on the oven. You won’t have to gather a lot of cooking gear. All you have to do is blend ingredients in the food processor (or blender) and chill them in layers until firm. Even better, the resulting pie is chilled. That means each bite is a cooling, refreshing blend of berries sweetened and blended with cashew cream–almost as good as sweet tea for taking with you to relax on the front porch. Read More
This article on blueberry buckle doughnuts (or doughnuts meet cookies, i.e., doughkies) is the third post in a series of make-ahead mornings, batch breakfasts designed to save you time. Also in this series: breakfast panna cotta and a closer look at smoothie packs.
Built like a doughnut, baked like a muffin and crunchy enough that their bite can be heard across the room, these doughnut hybrids are like doughnut meets cookie: doughkies?Read More
At first glance, the fourth chapter of Rudkin’s book strikes me as the strangest, departing from the linear storyline of her life to feature her interest in old cookbooks. As if to explain, she writes that she developed this interest while in the food business. In fact, knowing her hobby, on the twentieth anniversary of Pepperidge Farm, her employees surprised her with a copy of the world’s first printed cookbook, with a scroll signed by each one. Read More
