Yesterday (in addition to an order) I made some chocolate cut-out skeleton cookies! They're so adorbs. And today I've made white sandwich bread, anpan, currant scones, and cheesy bacon scones. I was going to make muffins too, but I ran out of time before the baby got here.

Cherry Almond Poppyseed muffins from Vegan Dinner and the East Coast Coffee Cake from Vegan Brunch. Both went down a treat at a work party.

Baking day was yesterday and as usual I made my standard banana bread (Compassionate Cook) -for husband's lunch and Wacky cake for after dinner * sigh, I really need to break out of this rut. Apart from shortbread at Christmas and the occasional choc chip, blueberry or bran muffin batch (that I'm never really happy with) I don't ever bake anything different. But I just keep returning to cheap and easy and that which I know will turn out okay. I'm going to go through this thread for inspiration.

ETA I have made brownies about 7 or 9 times this past year, but, meh.

What recipe do you use? My partner isn't familiar with soft pretzels, and I want to make some for him to try.

warning: they are so soft that they don't even really feel like pretzels, the taste is spot-on but they're really, really soft. i don't think i would make them again, but we're a house full of people with bad teeth and sketchy dental work, so soft is good.....

Today I baked my boyfriend a death by chocolate birthday cake. For the batter, I used this recipe, with mini chocolate chips thrown in. I topped it with the ganache. I decided to fill it with chocolate mousse, but I accidentally bought soft silken tofu and not extra firm. I went with it, hoping it would turn out like a pudding instead. No, it was like a melted milkshake. I just kept adding shiitake to it until it became somewhat solid, and it ended up being more like a peanut butter glaze. Hmm.

I haven't tasted the whole thing yet, but it doesn't look too ugly, for being my first layer cake! I can't wait to take pictures.

Thank you! (That's actually great for us, as he's waiting to be able to afford getting some dental work done - too chewy is not good right now!)

For Halloween I went VCTOTW all over the place and made the pumpkin cupcakes, but added cinnamon to the cream cheese icing instead of the recommended topping. Yum.

This weekend I made a chocolate chunk pumpkin loaf and apple swirl bread. I also made a french toast casserole, if that counts as baking..

Ooooooooooh, I need to try that.

Bread pudding. I have been making so much bread pudding over the past few months! I've decided it makes a really good breakfast.

On Sunday I made Isa's magic bars and a double-graham cracker crust apple pie with a salted apple-cider-caramel sauce! Delicious!

I had guests coming in over the weekend, so I got to baking! I made Maple Pecan Blondies (Dreena Burton), Pumpkin Coffee Cake (V'con), Brownies (Sticky Fingers), and Olive Oil Bread and Chocolate Gingerbread Cookies (Isa Does It). I can't decide which was the best recipes; I'm leaning towards the Pumpkin Coffee Cake. They were all great!

I've been wanting to make those cookies from ISI but now I'm sold on the Pumpkin Coffee Cake. That sounds so good. Though I checked the recipe and think I will 1/2 it.

I recently made pizza pretzels. So simple to make but I don't make them that often.

Pizza Pretzels!?! My kids would eat those, and that's a huge accomplishment these days! Do you have a recipe for them?

And yes, if you're not feeding an army you should totally 1/2 the coffee cake. It's a lot of food.

I do. I found it years ago via the web and not sure who the author was. No longer have the link as I just printed the recipe. Is it OK to post the recipe here? If not I can PM it to you.

I made this ginger cake: http://fussfreeflavours.com/2009/02/eas ... nger-cake/

It was really, really simple to make and it was delicious. I took it to a party and it all got gobbled up. I didn't get to eat that much of it myself - I might make another one tomorrow!

I made a coconut layer cake this weekend from this recipe: http://www.parade.com/26844/chloecoscarelli/classic-vegan-coconut-layer-cake/

I used flaked, toasted coconut for the outside instead of shreds (I used shreds in the batter) and used half a cup of unrefined coconut oil in place of half the shortening in the frosting. It was amazing, looked gorgeous and a party full of omnis ate it, totally shocked it was vegan (though they're an easy crowd - none of them know how to bake so any homemade cake is like magic).
