This past Sunday was World Baking Day and, as member of the cookQ team, a really fun project I’ve been collaborating on, and of which you can learn more about here, I was asked to participate by taking on the challenge of baking something for the first time. I went on World Baking Day’s site and took my pick: if you haven’t visited it yet, you should go take a peek, it’s quite spectacular!
The first option I was given - tiny coconut-carrot muffins - out of 100 of the world’s most exciting baker’s submissions, sounded and looked delicious! I didn’t hesitate, however, I swapped the hazelnuts for walnuts :)
This initiative is so amazing: World Baking Day began as a way for people from all around the globe to come together and share their passion for baking. On May 19th, people were encouraged to “bake brave”, by stepping out of their comfort zone and bake a cake they had never baked before, one that would push their baking skills to the limit!
I was so pleased to see the huge Portuguese affluence of participants, some of which opted to share a recipe from home; Portuguese are known for their amazing baking skills and desserts all over the world. It made me a bit nostalgic and thinking I need to share a traditional recipe soon.
Have a great week, Everyone!
