When you're gazing at the bakery window, some facts about pastries are apparent. Those cupcakes have chocolate icing, those tarts have cherries, and those doughy, sugar-sprinkled things look like they might be filled with Bavarian cream. Clearly, you love to ogle (and eat!) pastries and baked goods, but do you know what's in them? Take this quiz to find out!
These common ingredients can be found in many baked goods, but together they form the backbone of the most classic of all cookies: chocolate chip.
These ingredients combine to form blueberry strudel. Ice water was the big hint here -- cake would need baking powder, and the pie would need cornstarch.
Cinnamon raisin rolls it is! The answer couldn't have been cinnamon buns (they don't have raisins), and there's no way we're making bread without yeast (well, we could, but it probably wouldn't taste as good).
That quart of oil is for frying! Doughnuts might not taste greasy, but their delicious doughiness comes from a bath in hot oil. Another giveaway we weren't talking about pancakes or cake? Both of those contain flour!
Homemade lemon bars include all of these ingredients, plus flour, salt, baking powder and cold water.
You could buy the frosting that comes in a tub, but it's so simple to make your own. Start with plenty of butter, confectioner's sugar and cocoa, then add a splash of vanilla and enough milk to create the consistency you like.
Mama Mia! Who doesn't love a cannoli? The crisp shells are filled with creamy, sweet goodness and embellished with chocolate. Some pastry chefs even spike their cannoli filling with liqueur.
You can't celebrate Independence Day without apple pie, and you can't make apple pie without shortening (gasp) or cinnamon. Also necessary? Apples. But you knew that.
Yes, there's molasses in olive bread! The sticky sweet stuff adds a mellow taste and provides color.
A classic French éclair has three major components: the pastry shell, the filling and the glaze. It's laborious to create one at home, but any good bakery will be stocked with these submarine-shaped sweets!
