What I’ve Been Baking Lately….

Ovenly's Salted Chocolate Chip Cookie (Vegan)

If you’ve been following my Instagram account  you’ll notice I’ve been on a major baking kick.  I’ve mostly gotten the recipes off of the internet although I did buy Ovenly’s fantastic cookbook and am planning on buying Momofuku Milk Bar’s cookbook from Appetite for Books here in Westmount as soon as I can leave the house with the stroller (i.e. the streets aren’t full of slush.)

Here are a few of the recipe’s I’ve made and loved:

Ovenly’s Famous Vegan Chocolate Chip Recipe

Ovenly’s Salty, Deep-Dark Chocolate Brownies (tip: I bought dark cocoa from Patisserie Gascogne.  I think it was actually supposed to be a hot chocolate mix but it worked!)

Momofuku Milk Bar's Cornflake-Chocolate Chip-Marshmallow Cookie

I do recommend the Ovenly cookbook.  It feels very now and the treats are very grown up but still fun.  I’ve also made the Cornflake topped Blueberry Muffins and Raspberry Drop Scones (I believe the recipe is only in the cookbook.)

The Momofuku Milk Bar recipes are definitely not quick.  In fact I had them clipped from a newspaper article for years before I had the time to tackle them.  They usually come in multiple parts which I tackle a day at a time.  For example, I have some of their Cereal Milk in my fridge right now waiting to be incorporated into their blueberry and cream cookies.  I ordered the glucose for the recipe online.  But, being stuck inside I have the time and I need a challenge.  Which makes these modern takes on classic cookies perfect.

Have you guys cooked anything from either of these books?  Are there any other cookbooks out there that you are loving?
