Mushy bananas 🍌??!?!!
#AudioBaking 😄
This is a re-listen for me and I have to admit, it‘s MUCH more enjoyable on the second round. When I first listened, I was an audio newbie and didn‘t know about setting my listening speed….BIG difference now!

MrsMalaprop I think my first ever review on Litsy was of this book! 😍 2w
Cinfhen That‘s quite possible @MrsMalaprop it was released in 2016!!! 2w
Ruthiella I remember having to listen to a book on CD and just BEGGING for it to go faster. 😜 2w
Cinfhen So funny @Ruthiella 🤣🤣Thank Gd for new technology 🎉🙌🏻💚 2w

I made tomato swirl buns with Parmesan, as you do. They turned out really well but a touch too salty. Poop.

I‘m edging up on the halfway point with THE SHADOW RISING. I remembered it as the point where the series starts to sprawl a bit too much, but I‘m loving it. Yeah, it‘s big and some of it‘s probably not strictly necessary. but it‘s all interesting stuff. I‘m excited to keep on going. #audiobaking

Kimberlone Wow 😍 🍅 2mo
AkashaVampie They look so good. RECIPE???? 2mo

xicanti @AkashaVampie it‘s a hybrid recipe! I used a basic tangzhong dough (I like Kim-Joy‘s best) with 1tsp of basil added. Before the second prove, I rolled the dough up with a full recipe of Nigella Lawson‘s moonblush tomatoes (about 3/4 cup) and 1/2 cup Parmesan. Next time, I think I‘d cut the tomatoes down to only 1/2 cup and incorporate the cheese into the dough instead of rolling it in. 2mo
Kimberlone @xicanti looks GBBO worthy! 2mo
xicanti @Kimberlone I think Paul Hollywood would be pleased with the actual bread, but he‘d tell me to dial back the salt in the tomatoes next time. 2mo
AkashaVampie @xicanti thanks sweetie. 2mo
xicanti @AkashaVampie any time! 2mo

My aunt‘s coming to visit later this month and it‘s important to feed tasty things to your loved ones, so I made brownies (her fave) and sour cream coffee cake (my mum‘s fave) while I finished the tagged book. It ends with an audio-exclusive appendix on how to invent apple pie and ice cream. Totally appropriate for a spot of #audiobaking, even if you‘re an apple pie denier like me.

(I don‘t HATE it or anything, but it doesn‘t excite me.)

tpixie Yum! 3mo
BkClubCare Hey! How'd I miss this post that mentions #applepie? 2w
xicanti @BkClubCare this is a great mystery of life. 2w

I thought the moonblush tomatoes I made last night would be great in scones, so I did some early #audiobaking. I was right. These are incredible.

As is this book. I borrowed it mostly because it was available and I‘m trying to offset the large number of American-authored books left on La TBR, but it‘s blown me away. I‘m obsessed with it. Elton John‘s a lot more than a temper tantrum machine, which is how young me always saw him.

4thhouseontheleft Those look delicious! Can you share the recipe? 3mo
xicanti @4thhouseontheleft I made it up, so there‘s no link! I blended 3 cups of flour with 1 tsp dried basil and 1 tbsp baking powder, then cut in 1/2 cup cold butter. Once everything was properly nubbly, I mixed in 3/4 cup of milk, 2 beaten eggs, and about 3/4 cup of moonblush tomatoes. (The recipe for THOSE came from Nigella Lawson‘s website.) I formed the dough into two discs, cut them into wedges, and baked them at 375°F for about 28 minutes. 3mo
xicanti @4thhouseontheleft oh, and I forgot to list the 1/2 tap of salt in with the dry ingredients. 3mo

xicanti @4thhouseontheleft argh; I also forgot to list the roughly 1/4 cup of fresh-grated Parmesan I blended in right before I added the wet ingredients. 3mo
Kimberlone Wow those look amazing! I‘ve never seen tomato scones. Sounds delicious 🤤 3mo
xicanti @Kimberlone I‘ve eaten sundried tomato bread before, and these roasted tomatoes taste similar enough that I thought they‘d be a good substitute. And they were! 3mo

Made a galaxy mirror glaze for my nibling‘s birthday cake. It didn‘t turn out too bad for a first try. ❤️
