If you are looking for a diversion from artisan breads, or you just want to expand your baking horizons, surf over to The Modern Baker Challenge and check out the new venture some of us are undertaking.
Like the BBA Challenge, which I just completed, we are going to bake our way through an entire book: Nick Malgieri's The Modern Baker. Nick's book contains sections on quick breads, yeast breads, tarts, pies, and cakes. There are about 150 recipes in all. And, yes, I am planning to bake every last one of them.
