Baking in HOT weather
I have been a lurker for over a year, and LOVE this site. I'm looking for ideas, and tips on hot weather baking. What do YOU do? We have an old 50's gas stove (I'll NEVER get rid of this fantastic beauty), that gets uber hot so I don't use it to bake from spring until fall. Needless to say I spend the better part of the year (we live in sunny hot California) NOT baking. This isn't working for me (to say the least). Aside from building an outdoor oven (not an option, at the moment anyway), does anyone have nay idea on how to get my baking "fix" during the HOT months ? Machine baking? Crockpot? Barbecue?
