A Tart Worth Waiting 3 Days to Eat & Other Hits From Our Baking Club

June 15, 2017

Our Baking Club members have been busy making their way through Luisa Weiss' latest cookbook, Classic German Baking. We've learned we're much better at baking than we are at pronouncing German words—even with the help Luisa's pronunciation guide in the back!

Baking isn’t just something we like to do for fun though. It can also be a way to give back and raise money to help end child hunger in America when it's part of a bake sale for No Kid Hungry. Click below to learn about how you can join in The Great Food52 Bake Sale, but first, keep scrolling down to get inspired by what our Baking Club has been busy cooking up this week:

Celebrating the last day of school!! My son was sad about it-he didn't want the school to end, he said especially the last week with no homework! Happy Friday With Black Forest Torte-Schwarzwälder Kirschtorte, recipe from #classicgermanbaking @wednesdaychef this is one of my favorite cakes to bake. I've always loved it, when I got the book I couldn't wait to find the time to bake. I used the cherries I picked-there were a bunch of them that were sour, not too sweet, so I pitted and simmered in sugar and a little bit of kirsch. This time of the year is bittersweet I get emotional-kids are finishing their current grade, grown another year, it's halfway mark of the year. It's been very slow since I quit the school kitchen, it was a little challenging for couple months but things started happening and I think I'm in a good place-I don't know how and where I'm going from here-i remind myself to trust that everything will be ok. The cake is resting in the fridge, I can't wait to try!!! シュバルツヴェルダーキルシュトルテ。大好きなトルテ。ココアスポンジにたっぷりのキルシュ、チェリー漬けと生クリーム。以前は良く焼いていたのだけれど最近子供のお誕生日ケーキ以外ちゃんとしたケーキあまり焼かなくなってきてような?焼いたのが遅かったので食べるのはもうちょっと先。ワクワク。今日で学校終わり。最初はスローペースで不安との戦いであっという間の半年間でした。#food52 #f52grams #f52bakingclub #blackforestcake #cherries #readyforsummer #howisummer #schwarzwaldkirschtorte #torte #homebaked #baking #buzzfeast #buzzfeedfood #huffpostaste #huffpostfood #beautifulcuisines #kirschwasser #eattheworld #yahoofood #foodgawker #chocolate #cherrycake #tgif #ケーキ #手作りお菓子 #焼き菓子 #夏休み突入 #チェリーケーキ#キルシュトルテ
