May 17th is World Baking Day, something we want everyone to celebrate. Here are eleven recipes inspired from cuisines around the world - make one or all eleven!


1. United States  Caramel Apple Pie. Because there aren’t many things more American than a slice of apple pie a la mode.

2. Turkey  Baklava.  Flaky phyllo dough, crunchy walnuts, sweet honey – yes, please.

3. England  Sticky  Toffee Dessert Cakes, a.k.a Sticky Toffee Pudding. A moist sponge cake and a sweet caramel sauce. Not really a pudding at all!

4. Australia / New Zealand  Cranberry Pavlova. A crisp outside, with a soft, airy inside, this baked meringue dessert was named after the Russian ballerina Anna Pavlova. Replace the cranberry curd with lemon for a summer dessert.

5. Spain - Star Studded Flan. Baked custard coated in caramel, think upside down crème brulee.

6. Mexico Tres Leches Cake with Berries. Three milks and fluffy sweetened whipped cream for the moistest cake you’ll ever eat.

7. Italy  Almond Anise Biscotti. Dip in a cup of coffee and perfect for breakfast or an afternoon snack.

8. England  Banoffee Pie. No, this isn’t a made up word! Bananas and toffee, need we say more? Yes? How about salted dark chocolate?

9. FranceGingered Crème Brulee – a.k.a. “burnt cream”. Also known as sweet, creamy custard and a crunchy sugar topping. Also known as one of the best combinations in the dessert world, in my humble opinion.


10. Germany –  Individual Apple Strudel. Like an apple pie…but just for you!

11. Belgium – Belgian-Style Waffles. Wait. Waffles? For dessert? Yes. Top with whipped cream (or ice cream), fresh fruit (or sprinkles), and chocolate sauce (or homemade hot fudge).
