SHERRY (from New York) MADE MY POLISH PACZKI

“Hi Jenny, first time making donuts, made the pot roast as well tonight.

Can’t wait to try more of your recipes. Have relied on your low fat chocolate cupcake recipe for many baking events at work, they are always a big hit! ~ Sherry Hmiel, Liverpool, New York.”

Fudgy, Chewy, Gluten Free Dark Chocolate Brownies

Fudgy Chewy Gluten Free BrowniesI like these brownies just as much as my regular and very popular chocolate brownies. I was surprised how well gluten free flour works in brownies, both my lemon brownies and these dark chocolate ones. I think it makes them even more fudgy and chewy. The only gluten free flour I could find was Bob’s Red Mill 1 to 1 gluten free baking flour and it works really well. I’m hoping if someone makes this recipe with a different gluten free flour, they will report back on the result.

I make them with avocado oil but you can also used melted butter. Surprisingly, I prefer the ones made with oil and saw no improvement in flavor using butter. That may be because there is so much rich chocolate flavor in these decadent brownies. I use a whole 3-ounce dark chocolate bar and Dutch process cocoa, which is very rich and dark. I also use dark chocolate chips so that would make them triple chocolate brownies that just happen to be gluten free. Click here for the recipe – Jenny Jones

Subbed in 1/2 c rye for the all purpose, used molasses for the sweetener and added 1T caraway seeds. It’s a very subtle rye with great texture.

Hi Jenny! ? I made your MARBLE LOAF CAKE, it’s a great ‘snacking’ treat. Hubby and I nibbled on it throughout the day….LOL! ? I did use 1/2 a cup of whole wheat pastry flour instead of using all APF. I also added toasted pecans into the batter and topped the loaf with pecans. It all baked up  wonderfully, no problems at all. This easy to make MARBLE LOAF CAKE is definitely a keeper.

TERRI (from Nevada) MADE MY FASTER NO KNEAD BREAD

“Hi Jenny! I finally got the courage to make your No Knead Faster Bread! I had a ball watching you and your excitement was contagious!  I did everything right but the top got a little too brown! I have just moved to 5200 elevation near Lake Tahoe and I read all the comments of all the fellow bakers saying they didn’t have to make accomadations for higher elevations but I think next time I will cook at the end uncovered for about 8 minutes. This loaf was checked at 10 minutes and it obviously doesn’t need that long where I live. Maybe this will help other bakers who live at higher elevations! Love you, love your YT channel and love your generosity in teaching us all how to cook.”

My Lemon Brownies – Gluten Free!

Gluten Free Lemon BrowniesGood news for gluten free cooks! I was finally able to get the flour some people have mentioned in their comments and I tried it out with my lemon brownies. They turned out great – I saw no difference in taste or texture. This recipe is exactly the same as my regular lemon brownies only with swapping the regular flour for Bob’s Red Mill 1 to 1 gluten free baking flour. (This is not a paid endorsement, just a way to share a good recipe that’s gluten free.)

I have only made this recipe with this particular flour and can’t say how it will work with other gluten free flours so it you try it with a different brand of gluten-free flour please comment here on your results. I’m really happy to be able to share this very easy and very popular recipe for lemon brownies (some people call them “yellowies” ?) for everyone who has asked for more gluten-free baking. Click here for the recipe. – Jenny Jones

ERIN (from New Zealand) MADE MY CINNAMON ROLLS

“Hi Jenny. I am from New Zealand and like many of your subscribers, have found your website when looking for a recipe, in my case, for Cinnamon Swirls (as we call them!) Well, I have watched your video a number of times and still find it refreshingly fun! The story behind my picture is that when you have two six foot plus “rodents” in your Covid-19 bubble, you should hide your fresh baked cinnamon swirls J I must confess I sneaked a piece too! J Anyway, They tasted so delicious that I will make more and I also want to try your Paczki both with your custard and with Jam. Incidentally, I did add some Passionfruit Essence to the frosting on the Cinnamon Swirls which gave the taste a bit of zest!

If I may be cheeky, I have a mission that you or your subscribers may be able to help me with! When I was at High School all those many decades ago, we had a local bakery shop that sold these delicious Cream & Jelly Pies. Alas, that cake shop is no more and for the life of me, I cannot find that recipe on the internet. The pie itself comprise a sweet short crust pastry, filled with sponge cake and with Raspberry jelly/jam & whipped cream and sprinkled with icing sugar. It was in the standard oval pie form that our meat pies take. The shop was the “Greenmeadows Cake Shop” in Napier,  NZ. Many thanks and I apologise for my cheeky request. Kind Regards, Erin McBride, Mr., Retired.”

PAUL (from the UK) MADE MY NO YEAST BREAD

“Hi Jenny. Hope you are keeping well, here in the UK it’s quarantine baking time! Luckily I have no shortage of yeast as I buy small tubs and keep them in the fridge, we’ve been making lots of no-knead but thought I would give your no-yeast a try. Buttermilk is not a staple here so I used the 1tbs vinegar topped up to a cup with milk. Also had to add extra flour as I often find our plain flour is less absorbent. Turned out great (as usual with a JCC recipe), here it is, still warm with a bit of Marmite. Thanks again for your time and passion in bringing us these fantastic recipes. ~ Paul.”

GERT MADE MY NO KNEAD BREAD (using Swiss Ruchflour)

“Hello Jenny, my name is Gert, I’m a physician and I come from Innsbruck/Austria. I’m baking bread regularly since my father was a baker and I grew up in a bakery near the lake of constance. I found your video of making “No Knead Bread” on YouTube and immediately knew that I want to try your recipe with my favourite flour which originally comes from Switzerland.It’s called „Ruchmehl” and is pretty popular there. Since we all live under quarantine-conditions in the moment I unfortunately cannot let my partner Alex, who is living not far from you (Kitchener/ON) try the result of my baking (I made it in a wok, as you can see) right away. But the time will come when I will be able to visit Canada again and I would be pleased to meet you then. Thank you so much Jenny for your amazing recipes, sincerely yours, Gert Grubwieser, MD, DMD.”

JILL MADE MY NO KNEAD BREAD

“I am a dessert baker, but baking bread has been on my bucket list. After seeing your recipe, I felt as though this was something I could do. Finding yeast doing a Pandemic was another thing! As a last resort, I called a Cake store where I buy pans and cupcake liners and they had it. After seeing three small packs on eBay for almost $50.00, I had no idea what to expect. When the store owner told me the yeast was in a one-pound bag, I was hoping it would not be astronomical. $3.69 later, I was on my way to the Italian store to buy corn meal. Shortly thereafter, the following came out of my oven!”

~ Bucket List – Check. ✔️ That’s a great looking loaf. Thank you very much for the photo. – jennyJenny Can Cook Bread

BOB (from California) MADE MY NO KNEAD BREAD & PIZZA

Thank you, Jenny …

I made it to 77 with only the cooking skills to sometimes microwave oatmeal in the morning and burn an occasional hotdog or hamburger on a barbeque grill. Then the pandemic struck and awakened my irrepressible craving for daily fresh bread.
Rather than risk the remaining life I still cling to with dangerous forays to germ-laden supermarkets or bakeries, I searched YouTube to see if it was conceivable for someone with a complete lack of cooking skills to bake bread at home. Luckily yours was the first video I stumbled on — which shows that no amount of careful planning beats dumb luck.
Repeatedly I watched your no-knead bread-making video, chuckling each time at your cute remark about cleaning the writing off the baseball (as a good studio audience is supposed to do) and gained the courage to meticulously follow your technique. The result astonished me! I quickly and easily made the most delicious fresh artisan bread I’ve ever savored. Worthy of even the most pretentious boulangerie.
Now I have delicious fresh artisan bread every day. And you emboldened me to cook other things. I made your quick pizza. It’s better than my favorite pizza parlors (to say nothing of delivery pizza where you might get more sensual pleasure from eating the cardboard box it arrives in). Just so you know, I was raised in Nu Yawk City, so I really know good pizza.
With your online guidance I’m cooking and baking the foods I love, and love doing it. You’ve taught me how easy, fun and delicious It is to cook and bake. Candidly, I simply can’t believe that I can do this.
You’re my Food Goddess!

P.S. I’m attaching photos of 1) me with the cutting board I got from Amazon (perhaps I should order an apron?) and 2) my first baked bread and 3) the first pizza I ever made with your help (I like it crisp with lots of cheese).
Bob, a note like the one you sent and your photos are all I need to reaffirm my passion for what I do. I’m so happy to know that I helped you unleash your cooking skills. ?? Thank you for taking time to write your delightful note and for the great photos.  ~ jenny
