A New Mix in Baking

first_imgYou may well have heard of the latest baking trend to hit the UK; the combining of two or more recipes to create a never-been-eaten hybrid treat.It all started with the infamous ‘Cronut‘ – a cross between a croissant and a doughnut – which is now arguably the most sought-after pastry in the US. The Cronut is only available in America due to a strict patent law held by the Dominique Ansel Bakery in New York from where it originates. But this hasn’t stopped London-based Rinkoff Bakery from taking inspiration and launching their own take on the idea – the ‘CroDough’. And other bakers are also beginning to experiment to produce such bakes as the ‘Dosant’ (Daniel Doherty) and ‘Fauxnut’ (Ed Kimber). Other hybrid treats to have taken the UK by storm this year include ‘Townies’ (Tart/Brownie), ‘Duffins’ (Doughnut/Muffin) and ‘Biskie’ (Cookie/Biscuit). It appears that British baking is getting ever more creative.The adoption of cake trends from overseas is nothing new; take the popular Whoopie Pie from the US or the Australian Lamington as examples of food fashions which originated from abroad. But will the hype of duel-desserts continue to see the Cronut becoming the next cupcake? What will be created next? Perhaps a ’Pastrudel’ (pancake in strudel form) or what about a ’Cheeserole’ (profiterole filled with baked cheesecake).With all the hype of new, fresh ideas, let’s hope that traditional British recipes – such as the Manchester Tart and Lardy Cake aren’t all but forgotten and we see a renaissance of old-fashioned favourites in the trendy bakeries of Britain.About Helen NewmanLondon-based Social Media Manager Helen Newman says she has a huge appetite for cake.

Ireland end campaign with defeat

first_img Noel King’s men end Group Six with eight points from eight games. Germany’s goals came in the second half, with Philipp and Jonas Hofmann scoring within three minutes of each other. The Republic of Ireland under-21s wrapped up their European qualifiying campaign with a 2-0 loss to Germany. Philipp Hofmann actually had a legal goal disallowed for offside in the sixth minute, so it was justice done when the Kaiserslautern man opened the scoring two minutes after half-time. Jonas Hoffman – on loan at Mainz from Borussia Dortmund – then edged Germany further ahead three minutes later. There would be no Irish response and they finish fourth in their group of five, with Germany runaway leaders. center_img Press Associationlast_img read more

Vieira: I’m ready if Arsenal need me

first_img“If the question is, if I’m ready. Yes, I’m ready,” he told Goal.However, when asked if Arsenal had contacted him, he said: “Honestly and seriously, no. I still have, of course, next year.“It is going to be my contract at least until the end of the season and then after that, anything can happen.“But I have a contract until the end of the season.”The New York City FC manager has led his team to the top of the MLS Eastern Conference after eight games, losing only once. However, a move elsewhere is unlikely as he is contracted to the club until the end of 2018.“When your name is linked with big teams in Europe, it’s good,” he added. “That shows that people are following what you are doing and you are doing a good job.“What is important for me is to focus and concentrate about what I’m doing at the moment.“My head and my mind and my energy is on how to win the next game.”0Shares0000(Visited 1 times, 1 visits today) 0Shares0000After coaching Manchester City reserves Patrick Vieira took over the reins at New York CityNEW YORK, United States, Apr 26- Arsenal legend Patrick Vieira believes he is ready to take over as manager of the Premier League club but says he has not been in contact with them.With current Gunners boss Arsene Wenger leaving at the end of the season, after 22 years at the north London outfit, various managers have been touted as potential replacements, and Vieira is no exception.last_img read more
