    Better Baking Academy: Roulade with Karlee Flores

    Better Baking Academy: Roulade with Karlee Flores

    The classic roulade should be tender and light, gaining loft from whipping eggs alongside sugar, and moist and flavorful from simple syrup and decadent filling. In our recent lesson of our Better Baking Academy with Bob’s Red Mill, we are celebrating strawberry season with a showstopping Strawberry Roulade, a rolled masterpiece showcasing a perfect swirl. We talk with the wonderful Karlee Flores of Olive and Artisan, covering the best way to make and bake your roulade. She also offers insight into her inspired petit four take on our original recipe, and an inside look at her kitchen renovations!

    Better Baking Academy: Classic Cheesecake with Amanda Powell

    For our third lesson of the Better Baking Academy with Bob’s Red Mill, we’re tackling cheesecake! Our cheesecake has an uber creamy, dreamy texture thanks to a triple-threat dairy base comprised of heavy whipping cream, sour cream, and cream cheese. The vanilla bean seed-speckled filling covers a crunchy, buttery crust made with a winning combination of Bob’s Red Mill Old Fashioned Rolled Oats and Bob’s Red Mill Super-Fine Blanched Almond Flour. We bring on baker Amanda Powell of the blog A Cookie Named Desire to discuss the nuances of cheesecake, from the delicious crust to the creamy filling. Then Amanda shares some info about her blog, her love of theater, and her crave-worthy Turtle Cheesecake.

    Better Baking Academy: Chocolate Cream Cheese Pound Cake with Karlee Flores

    With our second lesson of the Better Baking Academy with Bob’s Red Mill, we’re taking on the humble hero of the baker’s repertoire: the pound cake. Named for its simple original recipe formula of 1 pound each of eggs, sugar, butter, and flour, the pound cake has had a number of delicious updates over the years, with bakers introducing tender cream cheese into the batter and incorporating rich flavors like coconut and bourbon. Our Chocolate Cream Cheese Pound Cake is a perfect blend of classic excellence and sweet modern improvement. We bring on baker Karlee Flores of the blog Olive and Artisan to discuss the best pound cake dos and don’ts. Then Karlee shares some info about must-bakes from her blog, including her Chocolate Zinger-Inspired Mini Cakes.
