Everybody loves a home-baked treat, and this collection of easy baking recipes has something for everyone. Whether you prefer sweet or savoury, I'm sure you'll find something that you'll enjoy amongst these easy baking recipes from #CookBlogShare.
I love baking. There's something so satisfying about turning a few raw ingredients into a dish that the family can enjoy. And I can't think of anything nicer than a slice of warm home-baked bread, fresh from the oven, and slathered in butter. Or a slice of freshly baked cake or savoury tart ... the list just goes on.
And baking doesn't have to be difficult. All my recipes have easy step-by-step instructions, which means you can be whipping these easy bakes up in minutes, with no chance of them failing.
What is #CookBlogShare?
CookBlogShare is a community for food bloggers to share recipes and foodie posts and generally support the food blogging community. The community is centred around the #CookBlogShare linky.
It is a wonderful way for a wide range of food writers, recipe creators and bloggers to come together and share each other’s recipes.
Each week the host chooses a selection of recipes which have been submitted during the previous week to showcase.
Easy baking recipes from Foodle Club
The following recipes are a few of my favourite easy baking recipes that I've shared on my blog. If you want more, just click this link to my recipe-index.
First up is my all-time favourite coffee and walnut cake. The cake is packed with chopped walnuts, and they are also sprinkled on top for extra crunch.
These coconut meringue jam tarts are a favourite South African delicacy. Light-as-a-feather pastry is topped with crunchy coconut meringue and filled with strawberry jam.
Because St Patrick's Day is coming up next week, I've included my easy seeded Irish soda bread recipe. This load stays fresh for up to 3 days, and makes the most delicious sandwiches. It's an easy recipe that doesn't use yeast. All you need is a quick mix and it's into the oven.
Another easy bread recipe, this time for soft dinner rolls. These do contain yeast, but there's no need to knead the dough. Just mix and bake!
If I'm having a get together, I love making these mushroom tarts to hand around as an easy starter. They are delicious served either hot or cold, and they couldn't be easier to make. If you've got a roll of puff pastry, a packet of mushrooms and a few standard pantry staples, you can knock these up in minutes.
And finally, another simple bake - this crustless ham and cheese quiche doesn't have any pastry so you can whip it up in no time at all.
Easy baking recipes from the CookBlogShare Community
These are some of the easy baking recipes posted last week (week 9) by some of the CookBlogShare contributors.
Last week's host, Choclette, from Tin and Thyme shared these delicious Simnel Brownies which are perfect for Easter baking.
Next up is this amazingly well-risen apple and sultana fruit bread courtesy of Cat from Curly's Cooking.
Janice from Farmersgirl Kitchen shared this decadent Jamaica ginger cake and pear trifle. It's not strictly a baking recipe because it uses store-bought cake, but it sounds so good I just had to include it. (And Janice has included a link to a homemade Jamaican ginger cake in her recipe in case you prefer to bake your own cake).
Last but by no means least, we have 2 recipes from Kate at Gluten Free Alchemist. The first one is for a gluten free chocolate fudge cake that looks like every chocaholic's dream, and the second is for an extra cheesy Paraguayan cheese bread made with 4 different cheeses.
If anyone in your family has a gluten intolerance, I highly recommend a visit to Kate's web page - she has tons of gluten-free recipes for you to try.
