Butter Celebrates

Christmas is coming early to Planet Byn, and we’re celebrating the release of Rosie Daykin’s new book, Butter Celebrates! You’ll remember the Butter Baked Goods Bakery from previous gushing here (when I visited the store in Vancouver last year) and here (when we hosted a giveaway for Rosie’s first book a year ago). I was so excited when I found out Rosie had written a brand new cookbook, and that it was organized around holidays and special occasions (I have just a teensy bit of experience with books like that!).

I was obviously drawn to the Christmas chapter of the book when picking the recipe I wanted to make for today’s post (I will neither confirm nor deny that my Christmas tree is already up). First I made Yum Balls, and let me tell you those suckers are not for the faint of heart! Then I moved on to this Orange Gingerbread Cake, and it was love at first bite. Rosie writes in the book that it will fill your kitchen with the scent of Christmas, and she was right! The cake is filled with molasses, cinnamon, ginger and cloves, and bakes up into a super hydrated bundt cake, with a hint of orange flavour. My co-worker asked me yesterday if there was Grand Marnier in it, so maybe more than a hint of orange. I feel like when I make this again, I might leave out the orange, and then pour over a brown butter glaze {insert heart eyes emoji here}. You can find the recipe on Page 224 of Butter Celebrates!

My favourite holiday is Christmas, and my favourite holiday treat is Carmel Cookies that you make with a cookie press.

Nicely done cake boss! Adding that one to my list!


Amanda @ Once Upon a Recipe November 26, 2015 at 1:18 pm

Dang, I was planning on trying those Yum Balls! This cake looks amazing and will definitely be making my Christmas baking list!

My favorite holiday is definitely Halloween! My neighbors throw a party that is UNREAL!


Danielle November 25, 2015 at 11:42 am

My favourite holiday is obviously Christmas, it’s the only one where you can eat treats straight for two weeks and it be completely acceptable. I love the idea of a brown butter glaze!!


Sarah November 25, 2015 at 11:27 am

That’s a tough one. I think though, since I’ve become a parent, Christmas has some special magic 😉

Now that I am finally getting into the Christmas mood, this orange gingerbread cake sounds absolutely delish. I have Rosie’s first cookbook and it’s already looking a little rough. I think I may have dogeared every page! LOL
