Has anyone baked from the Martha Stewart Baking Handbook yet? What have you tried & what do you recommend/not recommend? What do you plan to make from it?
I baked the blackberry roulade last December. It was good, but too creamy for me. Also the presentation wasn't pretty enough for a 'special' dessert.
Last week I made the oat & apricot scones from MS book. I sub. chopped prunes for the apricots. At the same time I made cranberry scones from Whole Grain Cookbook. The first day the cranberry scones were better, oat ones were just good. Very surprisingly, the following day the oat scones were terrific-actually better (not dry), whilst the cranberry ones weren't as appealing (dry).
The book has a couple of recipes that use sour cherries that look interesting to me which I may try. Incidentally, I'm Not a fan of Martha, but her recipes are good.
What are you making from the book?
