I Made Apple Pie

Apple Pie Jenny Can CookIt’s just so good! I wanted something special for the holiday weekend and decided on my homemade apple pie. I bought six large Granny Smith apples and this time I cut the slices a little smaller, about 3/4-inch thick. Someone had mentioned that the apples weren’t cooked enough so slightly smaller pieces worked out just fine. And of course, I always use my easy oil crust, using avocado oil.

Most of the time I brush the crust with milk but I had whipping cream on hand and used that before sprinkling the top with sugar. I didn’t see much difference from using milk. You can’t buy an apple pie anywhere that even comes close to homemade. Serve an apple pie and you’ll find you have more friends & family than you realized! ? Click here for the recipe. – Jenny Jones

LIA & LUCCI (from The Philipines) MADE MY CHOCOLATE CAKE

“Hi again Jenny! This is Lia and Lucci from the Philippines! This time, we made your chocolate cake. It was our Lola’s birthday today (Lola means grandma in Filipino) and we wanted her to have a special one this year even though we’re in quarantine. So, we decided to make her birthday cake! We tried it out a couple of days ago just to practice, but our frosting became a glaze instead (we added too much milk). This time though, it turned out amazing and we made it a two layer cake. She really enjoyed it!”

~It looks beautiful. Please wish your Lola a Happy Birthday from me too. ? – jennyDepression CakeJenny Can Cook Best Cake

JODY (from Washington) MADE MY OATMEAL PANCAKES

“What a delicious way to eat oats! I was unable to find whole wheat pastry flour but had cake flour and wheat flour on hand so I used 1/4 cup of each to equal the 1/2 cup pastry flour in your recipe. I’m looking forward to making them again and again. They really stick to your ribs! Speaking of ribs, I plan to try your rib recipe this weekend. ~ Jody from Olympia, WA.”

~I’m glad you liked them. I love anything with oats. Thank you for another fine photo. – jennyOatmeal PancakesTHEN SHE HAD SOME FOR LUNCH.

“Had this is as a late lunch today.  Delicious!  Thx Jenny ? #DONTJUDGEME ~ Jody from Olympia WA.”

ATHENA (from Canada) MADE MY SIMPLE WHOLE WHEAT BREAD

TATIYANNA (from Canada) MADE MY CHOCOLATE CAKE

“Hi Jenny! Love that we too have the Slavic connection! My parents are from Russia and have family in London, Ontario! Love seeing your videos as they make me feel so empowered. All the food you make is so manageable, so easy, and your smooth encouraging words and extra tips – you are like the friend I never had but always wanted. (Silly huh! I’m a single mom with 4 teenagers and lost my job!) Who knew that quarantine would bring such comfort to families with your videos. So here is a photo or two with this following caption: ‘A little chocolate cake with your icing, to help my daughter Isabella, get through socials 8! Yummy!’ Thank you so much from Vernon BC!”

~I’m with Isabella. The frosting must all get eaten! ? Thank you for the photos and all the best to you and your family. – jenny

GARY & LIZ (from Canada) MADE MY WHITE BREAD

“This is an amazing recipe and I was thrilled at how easy it was! One was the white, and the other I added 2 tsp. cinnamon and a cup of raisins, and it was so good. It doesn’t compare to store bought, that’s for sure. The first good loaves I’ve made, and now its fun to make bread! Thanks so much for sharing!”

I will lower my oven temp a bit next time so it’s not that burnt ( i also covered it in a tent foil as you had suggested) Regardless all I can say is the house Smelt great and it was DELICIOUS..”

Better Blondies

Dark Chocolate Chunk Blondies

I’m always looking for easier ways to cook and bake and now my blondies are even easier to make, and a little healthier. I’ve been replacing chocolate chips with dark chocolate chunks in most of my baking because dark chocolate (70% cacao) has health benefits. I chop up some of a dark chocolate bar and they are now my chocolate chunks for baking. (I like Lindt 70% bars)

My blondies are now super easy to make, using only 3 tablespoons of butter, lots of dark chocolate chunks & toasted nuts, and you can even use some whole wheat pastry flour (if you can find it!)

Click here for the recipe. – Jenny Jones

~ Thank you for your photos. They both turned out great. – jennyWhole Wheat No Knead BreadNo Knead Ciabatta BreadDutch Oven Ciabatta Bread

CHAS MADE MY WHOLE WHEAT NO KNEAD BREAD

“This is a pic of your No-Knead bread recipe made with 2 cups whole wheat flour and 2 cups of all-purpose flour. I increased the yeast to a teaspoon. It’s excellent but the regular all white flour version is out of this world.  I do use a bit more salt (1.5teaspoons) and a whole teaspoon of yeast and I add maybe a tablespoon of olive oil to the dough initially. My mom, my sister, and her kids all make this bread now. Thanks so much for making your video, we’re all a bit fatter but we love it.

I shared your video on Facebook and several friends make it now too. My sister added sesame seeds after resting the dough ( she spritzed it first with water) and says that works great. I may try that next time. I have made it in a cast-iron Dutch oven which come out great, a heavy pot with glass lid, an enamel 4.5 Qt pot,  and I can tell you that the 1.5 Qt enamel pan I tried is just TOO SMALL. It came out looking like a cake, but still tastes good.  Thanks again! Your bread is awesome!”

~ I’m a big fan of whole grain breads but I agree the white version is the best. Thanks for your photo!  – jennyWhole Wheat Dutch Oven Bread

DONNA MADE MY FASTER NO KNEAD BREAD

“Hi Jenny! I’ve been making sourdough bread for about 10 years but I love your no knead bread, so I decided to see if I could blend them somehow.  I made your recipe but I used 3/4 cup ripe sourdough starter instead of yeast, and only used 1.25 cups of cool water.  I let it sit for 12 hours because sourdough gets more tang the longer it sits.  It rose great, I baked in my ceramic baker, and it turned out beautifully, and the taste is awesome! Thanks for your great recipe!  I will still use the original, but it’s always fun to experiment! ~ Donna Czech.”

~ Thanks for your photos and for sharing your quantities as quite a few people ask about how to use sourdough starter. – jennyNo Knead Sourdough Bread

VICKI (from California) MADE MY EASTER BUNNY BUNS & NO KNEAD BREAD

“I found your site while looking for a 1 layer yellow cake recipe. That led to your Easter bunny breads for my granddaughter’s Easter ‘basket’ (actually they were bags) since we are sheltering in place and couldn’t got out and buy baskets or treat.   Your fast no knead bread was next. The breads have been fun and easy; I have my second loaf in the oven now. I used a razor blade to cut a simple design on the top. Can’t wait to see how it turns out. Our challenge here in CA is finding yeast and flour. Who knew those would be hot commodities during quarantine time. Glad I found you! Will be moving on to entrees next week as we are getting tired of my usual repertoire. ~ Vicki Rasmussen, San Jose, CA – Coordinator, Flowers of Comfort.”

I Made Sesame Seed Hamburger Buns

Homemade Sesame Seed Hamburger BunsI was craving a good hamburger so I made sesame seed buns from scratch and they were ready in an hour.  I can’t find whole wheat flour right now so I used my white bread with egg recipe. Just before baking, I brushed the buns using beaten egg yolk with a little water and sprinkled on the seeds. You can brush with egg white, egg yolk or even a beaten egg. Let me tell you, these were some awesome burgers! I used lean ground beef and I cooked the patties in a hot cast iron skillet. I seared them first so they were beautifully browned and tasted like they just came off the grill. (I should have taken a picture but I was hungry ?)

I had all the trimmings on hand, including lettuce, tomato, onion, pickle, mustard, mayo, and ketchup. WOW! I may never cook a burger on the grill again. I also made oven fries since I had a russet potato. I peeled and sliced it into fairly thin wedges, tossed them in olive oil, salt & pepper, and roasted them in a 425 oven on a baking sheet for about half an hour. Next time I make this classic American meal (and there will be a next time) I will post it as a recipe so everyone can enjoy delicious hamburgers at home. I never made a burger in a skillet  before so I even surprised myself.

TINA (from Texas) MADE MY CHOCOLATE CAKE

“Hello Jenny! My husband and I are both physicians.  He is on the front lines daily in the hospital while I’m seeing my patients via telemedicine. The one main lesson that this COVID19 crisis has taught me is that teachers are WAY underpaid! They all should be paid at least 10 times more for tolerating…I mean teaching our kids.  I’ve been trying to juggle seeing my patients, oversee distance learning for my kids, and manage my household chores – my escape has been trying your recipes in my kitchen (which is my happy place).  I have made so many and they all turn out so well!  I’m baking my way through this darn pandemic!

Anyhow, I decided to surprise my newly pregnant baby sister and her husband on her 33rd birthday with a “fancy” decorated version of your chocolate cake with your 2 minute frosting.This made her so happy on her birthday!!!  I just topped the cake with a few homemade chocolate covered strawberries and drizzled dark and white chocolate sculptures (I’m not sure what to call them).  Look how beautiful it came out!  I just love you and your recipes!!!  Thank you for being you and for sharing your love of healthier cooking with us! Hugs from Texas, – Tina Dieber.”

DAVID (from Canada) MADE MY NO KNEAD BREAD

“Hi Jenny. Made your quick no- knead bread & it turned out great. The only thing was the bottom crust was a little hard to slice through. Maybe when I remove the lid to brown the top i should reduce temp a little. Thanks, David D ~ from Toronto, Ontario, Canada.”

~ Reducing the temperature  when the lid comes off is a good idea or you could also try removing the loaf from the pan after 30 minutes and placing it directly on the oven rack but put the parchment paper,  folded over for more thickness, under it. Good luck! – jenny (also from Ontario, Canada ??)Easy Dutch Oven Bread

BARB (from Canada) MADE MY SIMPLE WHITE BREAD

Make Healthier Sandwich, Hamburger and Hot Dog Buns

Healthy Sandwich Buns

I love these soft, whole wheat buns. This is the exact same recipe as my simple whole wheat bread but it’s shaped into buns and it’s faster than the loaf. If you’re a fan of my whole wheat loaf, you must try making these buns. It’s a quick and easy recipe that takes only an hour from start to finish. With summer coming and burgers about to be made on the grill, you can now have a healthier option for hamburger buns. As for sandwiches, it’s always a healthier sandwich when you use whole wheat bread.

These rolls are so soft, you might forget they’re whole wheat but if you’re not a fan of whole wheat… no problem. These turn out just as well using my simple white bread with egg recipe. Either way, these are quick, easy and delicious buns for healthier sandwich and burgers. Click here for the recipe.

Homemade Hot Dog Buns

And here are my hot dog buns, made from the same recipe, only made into long buns. They are also soft, whole wheat buns for a healthy alternative to store bought buns. I tried store bought whole wheat hot dog buns and they were terrible – dry and heavy. These are light as a feather but again, if you want to make them white, just use my simple white bread with egg recipe. But since my soft whole wheat loaf is so popular, I hope you’ll try these healthier whole wheat hot dog buns. Click here for the recipe, – Jenny Jones
