BWD: November Recipes and P&Q

Hi, Baking with Dorie crew- thanks for such an exciting kick-off last week! Let’s go with the below two recipes for November. I’ve tacked on links to find the recipes on-line if you don’t yet have a book.

English Muffins, p 24 (Food52)
Apple Pandowdy, p 257 (Garden & Gun)

We’ll post from Baking with Dorie on the second and fourth Tuesdays of the month (11/9 and 11/23), and if you are a blogger, there will be a post here to leave your links on those days. If you are an IGer, please tag #tuesdayswithdorie, #bakingwithdorie and @doriegreenspan. You decide the order in which you bake the recipes. I know our second posting happens the week of US Thanksgiving, so if you want to make one of these over the holiday, posting a little later is a-ok.

This post will also double as our P&Q (Problems & Questions), so if you have any questions or advice, leave it all right here!

BWD: November Nominations

Thank you so much for sharing your loaf cakes yesterday– it’s a lot of fun to see so many friends come back together to celebrate this new book!

It’s time to start thinking about next month’s baking, but I know not everyone has a copy of Baking with Dorie yet. There are several recipes that are already available via other sources (some were originally published with slightly different titles, but the recipes are the same), and I think this coming month we should stick to things we can all access. I’ll list several options below…please comment which two you’d like to bake in November:

-English Muffins, p 24 (Food52)
-Breakfast-in-Rome Lemon Cake, p 76 (Dorie)
-Lisbon Chocolate Cake, p 133 (NYT)
-One Big Break-Apart Chipper, p 152 (Food52)
-World Peace Cookies 2.0, p 160 (King Arthur)
-Mokonut’s Rye-Cranberry Chocolate Chunk Cookies, p 163 (NYT)
-Cocoa-Cornmeal Biscotti, p 203 (NYT)
-Szarlotka, p 254 (The Providence Journal)
-Apple Pandowdy, p 257 (Garden & Gun)

The NYT recipes are behind a paywall; although you can find them elsewhere if you look them up, I’m also happy to send them to anyone who needs them if they are chosen.

We’ll post from Baking with Dorie on the second and fourth Tuesdays of the month (11/9 and 11/23). You decide the order in which you bake them.

BWD LYL: Miso-Maple Loaf

Here we go again! This is the place to leave a link to your blog (or Instagram, if you are participating only that way) post for the Miso-Maple Loaf, our first recipe from Baking with Dorie!

If you haven’t seen the beautiful book IRL yet, Dorie mentions her appreciation for TWD (which special perfect attendance props to member Mardi!!) in the acknowledgements section. She’s so very nice. If you post to Instagram, don’t forget to tag @doriegreenspan, #bakingwithdorie and #tuesdayswithdorie so she (and we) can all see.

Thank you everyone for being excited to keep this going with another book…Dorie has so many wonderful things for us to bake! And thank you always to Laurie W. for starting the TWD fun all the way back in 2008 with Baking From my Home to Yours! xoxo

Baking with Dorie Update

Hello! Thanks so much for all the feedback on baking our way through Dorie’s upcoming book, Baking with Dorie, Sweet, Salty & Simple. Let’s do it–I’m excited, and so is Dorie! And let’s start on the release day, October 19, which happens to be a Tuesday! In the future, we’ll do group nominations like usual, but for this first post we’ll be making the Miso-Maple Loaf. This recipe is currently (somewhat) readily accessible, so we can bake it in advance of the 19th. If you’ve pre-ordered the book, it can be found in her pre-order bonus materials, and if you haven’t, it’s also on the New York Times site. If you are unable to access either of those, please e-mail me at and I can send it to you.

Friends who bake from Dorie’s Cookies know that October 19 is a DC posting Tuesday. For this month only, our second DC post will be bumped to the next Tuesday, October 26, so we can celebrate the new book. Starting in November, we’ll be on our regular schedule: Dorie’s Cookies on the first and third Tuesdays of the month and Baking with Dorie on the second and fourth.

I have heard from Dorie, who loves that we’ll be baking along. We don’t normally include the actual recipes themselves in our blog posts (although a link to where the book may be purchased is always encouraged), but for this first recipe she has given us the green-light to include it written out in our posts if we’d like (again, e-mail me if you want something you can copy and paste). For any fellow Instagrammers, Dorie’s asked that if you post pictures there, you tag @doriegreenspan and #bakingwithdorie so she can find them and share them. Also tag #tuesdayswithdorie, so we can all see them easily (and if you don’t blog, but still want to bake along, this is another great way to join the fun)!

That’s a lot of info…if you have any questions, please ask in the comments or e-mail me ( Otherwise, I’ll have a P&Q post up soon, where you can leave any comments or questions on the making of the actual recipe, and an LYL (Leave Your Link) on October 19th, where you can share what you’ve made. Thank you so much!!
