I just started a new job and I wanted us all in the group that had started in the same time to feel that appreciated after the first week of training. And as I love to bake I made a Red Velvet cake for the first time ever and it was a success. My kitchen on the other hand was not a success as it looked like i killed someone in there. My god what a mess.
This cake was amazing and this weekend I went to the baking store for more supplies and today its lazy Sunday so I though i would make some cup cakes just because its fun.
I used to work in a bakery back in the days in Stockholm. After that I love bread and the lovely smell of fresh baked bread not just in the morning but all the time. I tried another bread with nuts and sesame seeds and it came out great. Now a lovely sandwich on fresh baked bread.
I love my baking and while travel on the canals it is perfect to make a cake that’s ready when you come into port. yesterday I made a carrot cake with cream cheese frosting for the coffee together with our friends. It was a success 🙂 I also tried another frosting with some green color but I think that one got yo sweet so i used the lovely cream cheese frosting instead.
I had the cravings from hell today and all I want to eat is just chocolate and more chocolate, I have barely eaten any real food yesterday and today. So I dug into the galley and made some awesome sticky chocolate cupcakes with coffee frosting and coconut and these peanut butter stacks. They are all gone now and tomorrow I try and make some more because these badges just got to good.
I love my galley in the boat and it is great to make food in. My husband asked me when he rebuilt the galley what my request were and I made a list hoping I would get half of the stuff on it. He managed all on the list and a little extra as well. Great stove with a great oven, carbon fiber surface, spice locker, new faucet, automatic light in all lockers when opened as well as led light strip with dimmer and last but not least red lights for the night sailing. When you have a good galley its fun to cook and I always say that no matter if you are tied up to the quay or out sailing you should always allow yourself to eat good food.
Baking is one of my passions and today I made some nice lemon cupcakes with cream cheese frosting and some small breakfast bread with poppy seeds .Pasta is a favorite on board as well as mini pizzas which is great to make and throw in the oven while sailing.
We make all our food our self and avoid half fabricate which mostly just contains Hugh amounts sugar and other bad stuff. So all the below pictures you see is food and baking we do either out sailing or tied up in port.
