Welcome to another update to my Retro Baking Challenge! I can’t believe it’s been over five months since my last one – oops 😅 In case you missed it, the last few months have NOT been kind to my health-wise, so my creating had to be put on the back burner.
BUT, since then, I have been making the most of my “good days” and have more recipes coming for you soon, as well as this update. In case you’re new around here, I set myself the goal of baking my way through the Women’s Weekly Retro Baking cookbook by the time I am 25, which will be in 2021.
I talk a little bit more about what inspired me to do this in my first post, if you’d like to give that a read. Otherwise, all you really need to know is that this cookbook is… not the best. A fellow reader even left a comment saying that the directions in this book are a bit confusing, and are more or less a “mix and dump”, which made me feel a LOT better as I am still a beginner baker and didn’t know if it was just me messing up.
That being said, I am still determined to bake my way through the entire book and continue to learn new things from it – even if it’s just what NOT to do – and I am happy to report that this update is full of mostly wins and great tasting results. Sorry for the spoiler alert 😜 Now enough talking, let me show you what I’ve been making recently!
