Ep 179: Japanese Sweets

June 1, 2020

Chocolate chip cookies are always in heavy rotation throughout the year, and this month is no exception as the hosts start off talking about their favorites, and some new discoveries. Then the hosts kick off an entire month of Japanese sweets and treats. First up is a classic Japanese milk bread, the Shokupan from Chopstick Chronicles. Will Andrea and Stefin love what they've been missing in this fluffy, soft white bread? Andrea's latest Netflix obsession, Kantaro: The Sweet Tooth Salaryman is the inspiration around the segment on anmitsu, a traditional Japanese dessert.

Ep 177: Pineapple Upside Down Skillet Cake

May 18, 2020

Is it doubly delicious, or double trouble, when a recipe mix-up for this week’s bake along leads Andrea and Stefin down two different pineapple paths? Then it’s time for a Canadian heritage pie with the perfect title for our Roaring ‘20s month: Flapper Pie from Allrecipes.com! And, after you’ve stopped by this week’s Intimidation Station, you’ll be a champion of custard and a master of meringue.

Ep 176: Samoa Cookie Bars

Ep 176: Samoa Cookie Bars

May 11, 2020

Andrea's raving about her latest discovery: using spelt flour in Ina Garten's chicken pot pie. Then it's a review of Samoa Cookie Bars from Life Love and Sugar -- better than the boxed version from the Girl Scouts? This week's bake along is a favorite 1920s dessert, the pineapple upside down cake from King Arthur Flour -- this time, made in a skillet. Finally, the hosts take a deep dive into the food history of the 1920s to discover why innovations in science and technology 100 years ago are still influencing how we bake and eat today.

Ep 174: Donut Loaf

Ep 174: Donut Loaf

April 27, 2020

It’s a bumper final episode of Sweet & Sour Month! The hosts are intrigued by a sour-cream pie crust, and Stefin’s finally tackled homemade milk kefir using freeze-dried starter (reminding Andrea of cowboy sourdough). In this week's review, the duo dodge numerous frustrations to declare Shauna Sever’s Donut Loaf a huge, powdered-sugar-covered win. And who can resist the month’s final bake-along? Emma Christensen's Buttermilk Quick Bread with an astonishing 10 variations, that uses your choice of fat, flour, and sweet or savory add-ins. Finally, the duo take a Dairy Deep Dive into the history behind some of this month’s tangy ingredients.

Ep 173: Lemon Sour Cream Pie

Ep 173: Lemon Sour Cream Pie

April 20, 2020

A variety of quarantine baking challenges kick off the show; your favorite baking duo are on the case to help you with freezing dairy and locating egg- and flour-free desserts. The recipe review of Lemon Sour Cream Pie from Tastes Better From Scratch featured one roaring success with a blind bake! Both hosts agreed this pie's star ingredient, sour cream, makes for a lovely and delicious dessert. This week's bake along is Donut Loaf from Midwest Made by Shauna Sever. Stefin's excited based on recipe name alone, while Andrea's hoping it will help her overcome her donut aversion.

Ep 172: Chocolate Chai Kefir Cake

Ep 172: Chocolate Chai Kefir Cake

April 13, 2020

Stefin and Andrea were blown away by the recent virtual Preheated Bake Along spearheaded by Listeners Jesse and Rebecca in late March. From cranberry banana bread to “ugly cake,” with stops in Florida for strawberry jalapeño jam, fennel crackers in London, and first-time croissants, our Listeners worldwide had a great time sharing their original bakes. Though this is the first official month devoted to desserts made with tangy dairy, the Preheated hosts have been baking with buttermilk, sour cream, cream cheese and crème fraîche since Episode 1, but have never baked with the milk kefir featured in the Chocolate Chai Kefir Cake from Olive Magazine. Sadly, though both are fans of warming chai spices, as well as chocolate cake, they felt the flavor combo did not work. Hopefully, this week’s bake along, the Lemon Sour Cream Pie from Tastes Better from Scratch will be a creamy, cheerful delight. Finally, in an ongoing feature on how to make some of this month’s featured dairy ingredients in your own kitchen, the duo describe making homemade crème fraîche, buttermilk and sour cream.

Ep 171: Sweet and Sour

Ep 171: Sweet and Sour

April 6, 2020

April is full of sweets that rely on a little sour to make them sing. The Preheated duo kick off a month full of bakes that rely on tangy ingredients like buttermilk, yogurt, sour cream, and, in this week’s bake along, milk kefir. (Thanks to Andrea's husband for the theme!) But first, Stefin’s got a #20for20 baking resolution update from Bread Ahead, and Andrea reminds listeners of the Quarantine Baking resources available on preheatedpodcast.com. Then they intro a Chocolate Chai Kefir Cake from Sarah Cook via Olive magazine, which may be Andrea’s ultimate one-layer cake. Finally, your favorite baking duo talk you through making this week’s key ingredient at home.
