It's time to put all that fresh fruit to use—here are the only summer baking recipes you'll ever need.
Recipe by Janna Bishop and Shira McDermott from Flourist Bakery.
Contrary to popular belief, the height of summer is actually the perfect time to roll out that puff pastry and fire up the oven: after all, now is when stonefruits and berries of all kinds are at their prime. So we tapped Janna Bishop and Shira McDermott at Flourist, East Vancouver’s most ingredient-obsessed bakery, for recipes to make the most of the season’s best flavours. From flaky galettes bursting with brightness to patio-party-perfect strawberry shortcake, it’s a delicious celebration of the bounty of fresh fruit at our fingertips here in the West.
This fun and festive cake is best made with strawberries bursting with flavour at the peak of the season. Here’s the recipe.
We like using simple desserts like this traditional French clafoutis to let the flavour of whole-grain flours shine in. Summer berries or sliced stone fruit can be substituted for the cherries. Here’s how to make it.
Every pastry chef has their go-to dough—make this one yours. Here’s how to whip it up (and psst—the following two recipes use this dough as a base).
Our favourite peach pie is simple and minimally sweet to showcase the flavour of summer peaches in the peak of their season. Enjoy with vanilla ice cream or whipped cream. Here’s the recipe.
This outrageously tasty galette comes together with just a few ingredients. It’s wonderfully adaptable to whichever fruit you have available. Play with the amounts of sweetener to balance the savoury flavour of the brie. Find the recipe here.
