What are you baking these days? June 2014 edition, part 1! [through June 14, 2014]

It's June several places I'd rather be ;-) awaaay we go! I bought some Kerrygold butter today, to make kouign amann with, inspired by the Bon Appétit article...not sure if they'll get done this weekend or next, but they sound like a fun project. What's hotting up your oven these days?

  1. Ooh! Kouign amann!!! Let me know how that goes - I've been looking at that recipe, too. One of my favorite bakeries does them really well.

    1. I am going to try to make hamburger buns, we'll see how it goes. I'm using dough from the artisan bread in 5 mins a day--and some of my sourdough starter. I've never done it before, so this will be an experiment. Anyone have tips on hamburger bun baking?

      I'm also turning my dry cookies into a strawberry lemon fool.

        Challah hamburger buns are very good! But, they're a bit different. Sweeter.. fluffier?

      2. I adore kouign amann, and I daren't make it. I know that it is something I absolutely cannot resist!

        1. Yum! Can't wait to see pictures..

          1. Today I made mango doughnuts (don't have pictures up yet). But recently I've also made caramelized banana souffle, devil's food cake, and a key lime tart :)

                      Sure! Is it from somewhere, or your creation?

                          Hi, sorry I posted a link earlier but it was against forum policies so it was removed. If you'd like, you can find them on my blog (IronWhisk). Sorry about that!

                            thank you, Ilan. I'll make your mango curd.

                            I served a strawberry rhubarb puree with my apple pie last night.
                            The mango curd will be an interesting match with coconut pie.

                              Oo, that does sound interesting!

                        These are the mango doughnuts I was talkin' about! They were sooooo soft and the mango curd was awesome. My only issue is with the colour of the curd; the egg yolks made it quite yellow.

                        1. re: IlanK

                          That is the cutest little blob of curd coming out of there.

                          I made a coffee, hazelnut, and caramel entremet cake!

                          The hazelnut cake layers were sooo fluffy. I loved them a lot. There was also a layer of caramelized hazelnuts which was really good. To make that layer, I mixed the hazelnuts into a butter & corn syrup & sugar mixture and then baked them + topped it all with coffee & white chocolate mousse.
