    For our latest lesson in the Better Baking Academy with Bob’s Red Mill, we bring you an instant Italian favorite: delightfully dimpled and pillowy soft Summer Focaccia. Whether sweet or savory, focaccia comes together with just a few simple pantry ingredients creating a lofty flatbread that can be customized with an array of toppings. We take things to the next level by talking with Karlee Flores of the blog Olive and Artisan about her edible flower twist on the original. Then we jump into the world of kitchen renovation. Question of the episode: What does your dream kitchen look like?

    Better Baking Academy: Gluten-Free Coffee Cake with Amanda Powell

    Better Baking Academy: Gluten-Free Coffee Cake with Amanda Powell

    This episode, the bakers tackle another lesson of our Better Baking Academy with Bob’s Red Mill. We level up coffee cake with a gluten-free transformation that will have even the most devoted gluten enthusiasts smitten. With a simple stir-together batter, this cake also sports a crown of crunchy streusel, providing a harmonious textural contrast to the tender interior. We start by using Bob’s Red Mill Gluten Free 1-to-1 Baking Flour to create the batter, adding almond flour for structure and flavor, and folding in a generous addition of berries for a seasonal boost that adds eye-catching color. Plus, we bring on Amanda Powell of the blog A Cookie Named Desire to chat about her raspberry and chocolate chip take on it.

    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.

    Better Baking Academy: Classic Cheesecake with Amanda Powell

    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.

Late to the game but so happy!

I love baking and being in the kitchen and though I have known about Bake From Scratch and all the related bakers on Instagram for a while, I somehow missed the boat on this podcast. I love it! It totally fills my need to think about baking and to learn more about the craft 👏🏼👏🏼👏🏼

A Must-Listen for All Bakers!

If you love baking and want to absorb as much knowledge as you can on the topic, listen to this podcast! The hosts are so fun to listen to and the guest line-up is star-studded. My only complaint is that it’s not weekly - like with sweet treats, I’m kind of insatiable! LISTEN!

Not much usable content; mostly hawking bob’s red mill

Listening to the poundcake episode, which is 30 minutes long. After fifteen minutes, they still haven’t started discussing the recipe or technique. Instead, they’ve talked generally about liking to eat poundcake, and they’ve name dropped their sponsor at least 10 times.

If you want cooking/baking advice, better to go with Milk Street, Splendid Table, or one of the many other pods devoted to advice and instruction.
