      Made this with Blend #5. Really good by itself. Also good with lemon curd and raspberry jam. I didn't start it with the starter suggested by the cookbook. I used our usual starter (probably at a different hydration level) and added liquid by feel as suggested by Vanessa Kimbell.

  • Poppy seed & lemon cake

    • Etrnalhope on September 14, 2021

      This one surprised me in texture. I was expecting it to be dense, but was surprisingly tender and quick bread like. Needs to bake a little longer--was doughy in the middle. Hard to tell if it's a problem with oversoaking of syrup in one spot or underbaking. Not very sweet. I wanted it a little sweeter, but my partner liked the tartness as is. Used my own starter and added liquid to feel per Vanessa Kimbell's instructions.

  • Golden orange blossom cake

    • Etrnalhope on September 14, 2021

      Feels less like a cake than a tasty breakfast food. Very hearty and good. Went over very well with people who like foods that taste "healthy"--enough so that they bought the cookbook! I had to use a combo of thicker dried mango and thin dried mango. If I had to do it again, I'd stick with the thicker stuff because it takes up less surface area when lining the pan. Used my own usual starter and added liquid to feel per Vanessa Kimbell's instructions.
