Break out of Your Baking Rut
You've done the banana bread. You've done the sourdough. Welcome to the next frontier.
It's safe to say the whole world has engaged in a collective bake-off. Whether you're a novice or seasoned expert, let this be an opportunity to expand your baking repertoire. We've curated some of our favorite baking recipes outside the norm.
Earl Grey Olive Oil Poundcake from Food 52
The magic ingredient in this recipe? ALIVE olive oil. It's tricky to steep tea in water and produce the right sweetness. Recipe author Ellie Betzen discovered the perfect workaround — steep in olive oil instead.
Campari Olive Oil Cake from The New York Times
Fig and Hazelnut Bread from The New York Times
We love a good crunch in our baked goods, so we love that this recipe incorporates hazelnuts. The fig provides a fresh fruit alternative to banana, with a slight berry tartness.
These are as beautiful as they are delicious. Sugar cookies are great for quarantine cooking, as they require fewer ingredients. As with the Campari Olive Oil Cake, you can experiment with LUCID lemon oil rather than regular olive oil for added zest.
