Such a great use of slightly stale croissants, I've got this recipe earmarked as something to make for Easter brunch next month. In her latest book, A Good Day to Bake, Ebuehi offers more recipes that celebrate flavour and gives home bakers further ways to bring calm into their kitchens. Lots of yummy goodies in here, but I think I prefer Ebuehi's first book as the variety in cakes were more up my street.When I bought a copy of her first book, The New Way to Cake, I found that, "[w]hile being exceptionally flavourful, these bakes feel steadfast and comforting.
It's not always about the result, because Ebuehi encourages us to enjoy the moments of calm along the way. They star flavors not usually used in bake goods, like tea, herbs, and less usual fruits and veggies, so tastes are new and even startling in a good way.
While my husband and I loved the coffee glaze, the kids didn't like it (and they aren't picky, especially about sweet foods).

It's just such a nice time just to really, really slow down and I guess, yeah, appreciate the small things.Going through the ritual of bringing out the measuring scales, pouring out flour, whipping up the eggs, stirring the batter and impatiently slicing into warm cake is a beautiful thing that deserves to be enjoyed all year round no matter the day, season or occasion. Suzy Chase: You've said lining the tin, greasing the sides, chopping up butter to weigh out, those little steps just feel really, really soothing. In the book’s (delightfully titled) “Best of Beige” chapter, Ebuehi sings the praises of “almost-too- flaky-to-eat-without-making-a-mess sausage rolls.
