So after the success of the danishes at the last EarthSave potluck, Alison(ex-office manager) and Ben(current office manager) of EarthSave Canada both asked me to make them Danishes. And I sure did:
Peanut Butter and Jam Danish:
with new an improved peanut butter filling.My favourite danish.
Strawberry Chocolate Danish:
Strawberry Cheese Danish:
Almond Chocolate White Chocolate Danish:
I know that they went over famously because Ben cute one or two up and let everyone at EarthSave for the day and everyone in all the other offices at the SPEC building have some and I got many thanks from random people for the Danish. Kate, who’s on the board of directors dropped by for a couple of minutes and about 10 after she left she phoned to say that the Danish she took was good.Heh.
I ran into Mimi on Monday morning and she told me to go by her house and she’d leave me a bag of local strawberries from when she went to a u-pick farm the week before. Well after sitting outside in the sun in a Ziploc bag there was a ton of strawberry juice the strawberries were now floating in. I tried some right from the bag and these were the best strawberries I have ever tasted. So flavourful. Incredible. So I used the strawberries and the juice to make some filling for the danishes. It’s just like strawberry jam, but it’s not.
Now I would like to say thank you to KT who introduced me to Danish making after bisquing forever about wanting Danishes. And lolo never gave the Danish recipe to us testers for her book last year, but who needs that now?
KT is an incredible baker at Sweetpea Bakery in Portland,OR.y’know,in that mimi mall or whateyvar. She takes really beautiful pictures of cakes and other things she bakes and here’s a review of Sweetpea. I tried a bunch of Sweetpea stuff last year from New Seasons(Sinclair?) but I’m super excited to go to the actual bakery-‘specially because Katie’s there.
