This cinnamon cake goes down in history as one of my best cake masterpieces.

Apple Cider Cinnamon Rolls I'm not one for apple chunks in my buns and rolls, so instead, to draw out the apple flavor, I opted for an apple cider icing; I cooked down the apple cider, added a little cream cheese, butter, and confectioners' sugar, and low and behold! Amazing. At least, that's what my 11-year old daughter exclaimed when she tried them.

Are you using the best tins & trays for the job? With wetter doughs, artisan-style breads and inclusion-packed products, the bakery market is becoming more complex - and bakeware is having to adapt to match.

Pear Apple Hard Cider Pie Here, however, I've combined them; this pie is chockfull of fresh pears, and their juice is cooked down with a good splash of hard apple cider. It's a fantastic combination, a perfect pie for crisp autumn evenings and then for breakfast the following morning.

25% Emmer flour and rest white loaves I found a package with Emmer flour in the larder that I had totally forgotten about so my weekly bake for friends consisted of 25% Emmer with the rest Marriages Strong White as I had not baked with this flour for a long time and did not want to go wild too quickly….and risk the friends ending up with disaster loaves…ha, ha….

Pumpkin Brownies with Cream Cheese Swirl - My Baking Addiction Pumpkin and chocolate seems to be a combination that people either love or hate. Personally, I'm kind of a fan. Although, if you haven't noticed, I'm pretty much a self-proclaimed pumpkin addict - if nothing else, this girl is self-aware.

Wild Rice Bread with Cranberries and Almonds This was another loaf inspired by Sarah Owens, but again I swapped out the add-ins and the flours used. I like Danni's idea of using cranberries and nuts so I used those instead of the herbs suggested by Sarah Owens. Delicious loaf!

Roasted Butternut Squash Sourdough with Seeds This was my take on the roasted butternut squash sourdough by Sarah Owens, but I decided to sub out the flours and make a savory version by replacing cherries with sunflower and pumpkin seeds.

Uzbek Non I found photos of the beautiful flat breads that they bake in Uzbekistan on a travel blog. The bread stamps that they use, called chekich, is not available here, so I spent an afternoon in the garage making my own. It is a soft fluffy bread that contains yogurt.
