Baking and Such - Show and Tell Friday

We had a quite a fair amount of baking.
My husband made that turkey pie I told before and also another with minced meat for another day and made sausage rolls, the best ones I ever ate.

And I made Bolo Vicente or Vincent Cake, a must in all Christmas because my grandmother used to make it always.
It's the one in the picture above and the same here too.

I also made rabanadas, or golden slices.

They are made with bread, sliced. We put each slice in milk, take it off, put in egg and fry it.

Then, we mix sugar and cinnamon on both sides while it's still warm. My uncle likes to eat them with honey.

Another must on Christmas time at our house - and since the begining of Autumn - is apple pie. Two big ones I made and it's already almost in the end.
Then it came the end of the year with a batch of new baking.
The amazing this is the more I bake the more I like it.
Let's see what this year bring us on baking inspiration. And I will keep you updated.

For Show and Tell Friday, at Kelli's.

I bet your house smelled so wonderful with all that baking!!! Around here, it's almost like sopapillas from Mexico...you fry the tortillas and then while hot and greasy you sprinkle them with confectioners sugar or cinnamon/sugar! Wonderful treats.

Happy Show n Tell Friday, and happy new year.

I have never heard of Vincent cake. Since that was my father's name, I'm intrigued. I'll have to google it. Thanks for sharing. Happy Show 'n Tell Friday.

It's true: the more you bake, the more you enjoy doing so. This is also true of all the traditional domestic crafts that modern women are so afraid to practice or dispise out of ignorance. There is so much pleasure to be found in the ordinary!
I wish you many such pleasures in 2009, and all that your heart desires and God permits.Sweet blessings to you and your lovely family.
