Baking Through "On Baking"

Old Wwworld Cafe is all about doing things by hand, and that includes making the baked goods for the cafe when it's opened. There's no time better than the present to brush up on our baking skills, so we here at Old Wwworld Cafe are going to bake our way through the book "On Baking".

We started at the beginning, and made some of the simplest of baked goods: simple syrup, beaten egg whites, and ricotta cheese. Now, the syrup and egg whites were no trouble, and we even took the syrup up a notch and flavored it. This was a first for me, so I was weary as to how the flavor would turn out. It really shocked me with just how tasty it was. Well, I'm sure you're asking, "What flavor did you make?"

Coffee of course! And it was quite delicious! Adding it to an already tasty cup of coffee or a homemade frappe is the perfect touch.

Now beaten egg whites are another item I am familiar with making, but it took me quite a while before I could get stiff peaks.

Still those were fairly simple and not too new to us, but the ricotta cheese was definitely something different.

Overall, everything turned out pretty well (though the ricotta was a little on the lime flavored side... we're still working on perfecting it) and we're excited to start the next phase, biscuits! So stayed tuned and follow us on our journey through "On Baking"!
