    Default September Baking Challenge

    For September my challenge will be to make some things from the fresh fruits.


    I made a peach cobbler yesterday. I am making a peach crisp tomorrow.

    I see some apple dumblings and pies in my near future.

    Forgot about the challenge....I attempted Chinese coconut buns. I need to tweak a few things but will make these again Hehehe - I didn't close the buns properly so a lot of the 'juices' flowed out.

    Libby, I've never heard of Chinese coconut buns. Looks good.

    I'm sure I will bake something this month. Will have to see.

    Anyone got tips for me on how to 'close' buns? I tried pinching the dough, folding it over then pinching....and it sill oozed out. The inside isn't supposed to be juicy but there's some moisture. The dough kept snapping back and not 'folding' or 'sealing' properly for me and the fold was on the bottom on the tray.

    Libby, did you moisten the dough edges with water before you pinched the dough together?

    Ok - that is so logical and I didn't think of it! Will try that next round.

    I made a peach pie.

    Turned out decent........not fantastic, but very edible. Didn't take pics.....it was all I could do to wait until it cooled to sample. Have shared some of it with a friend's dh. (she can't eat sugar.......but he can!!)

    I made banana bread yesterday. Not very original and not with 'fall' fruits, but it was good none the less.
