So why not try out one of the recipes we have mentioned below and then visit us to try a few of the scrumptious treats we have baked specifically for World Baking Day. 

  1. Baklava – Turkey

Believed to have been first invented in Turkey during the intriguing Ottoman empire, baklava is a traditional pastry dessert known for its incredibly rich and sweet flavor and flaky texture. Interestingly, many Mediterranean countries have their own versions of baklava, so depending on your tastes, you can choose a baklava recipe that appeals to you. 

  1. Buttery Croissants – France

One of the most popular savory deserts globally is the buttery French croissants. Croissants are made from a flakey, buttery, French viennoiserie pastry, and the Austrian kipferl uniquely inspires their shape. Today there are many versions of the french croissant to suit varied tastes, so whether you’re in the mood for a tasty chocolate croissant or a delectable melt in your mouth buttery croissant, you can make it this World Baking Day. 

  1. Black Forest Pudding Cake – Germany

Germany is well known for its interesting desserts, so if you’re in the mood to bake something wholly different from the norm, why not try and bake a black forest pudding cake. This type of cake is the perfect amalgamation of cherry liquor, whipped cream frosting, chocolate, and fresh cherries. Trust us, it not only looks decadent but actually tastes delicious too. 

  1. Churros – Spain

Another popular dessert throughout the world is Churros. Although this recipe originated in Spain, there are numerous versions of this pastry dessert. Additionally, even though they are uber easy to make as they only require a simple choux pastry, hot oil, and cinnamon sugar to make, this fried dough recipe is worth trying. We recommend serving it hot with chocolate dipping sauce for a truly Spanish experience. 

  1. Banoffee Cake – England

The English have their fair share of delicious baked goods you have to try, but today we’re not talking about scones and tea. Instead, we want you to try baking a traditional English banoffee cake. These cakes are made with fresh bananas, toffee, and cream. Yet, what’s interesting is that they have a buttery biscuit base made with butter and crushed cookies.
