The Innocent Baker Review June 2019
The Innocent Baker is Canada’s FIRST Gourmet Baking Box! The box comes straight into your home every month complete with pre-measured artisanal ingredients, an easy-to-follow, step-by-step themed recipe card and a surprise gift to assist you on the road to making delicious desserts for friends and family! They kindly sent us this box for review.
Full disclosure, I was anxiously waiting for this month’s The Innocent Baker box to arrive. I saw spoilers for the June box and this month’s recipe is something I’ve been wanting to try for a very long time.
When you sign up for The Innocent Baker you have 3 subscription options to choose from:
- 3-month prepay
- 6-month prepay
Each month you will receive pre-measured gourmet ingredients, easy-to-follow instructions and gifts for your kitchen, delivered to your door each month.
Have you ever wanted to bake but found yourself missing that ONE ingredient that could make it happen? Have you ever gotten excited about a recipe only to get disappointed with the complicated directions and lackluster results? Have you ever wanted to try a recipe that called for a small amount of an unusual ingredient but found that sourcing and stocking said ingredient was not worth the time, money and effort. If your answer to any of these questions is YES, then The Innocent Baker box is for you!
Here’s a closer look at the items we received in the June The Innocent Baker box….
The Innocent Baker June Recipe
This month we are making Maple Walnut Coffee Cake Donuts.
These donuts are a tasty treat at any time of the day. They taste especially great with a hot cup of coffee or tea!
For the dry ingredients we received the following:
- brown sugar
- cinnamon sugar
- icing sugar
- flax meal
- oat flower
- baking powder
- sea salt
For the wet ingredients we received the following:
- bourbon extract
- almond extract
- vanilla extract
- maple syrup
For the tools we received the following:
- piping bags
- two silicone donut pans
What We Need to Purchase
Each month we are provided with a small list of items we will need to provide. This month we need eggs, whipping cream, butter, and sour cream.
As per usual, the recipe was organized nicely, complete with numbered steps and photos. It also tells us the prep time (30 minutes) and the baking time (16-17 minutes). I found it easy to follow, with a total number of 8 steps. Here’s the overview:
- prepare streusel topping
- whisk dry ingredients together
- make donut batter
- fill donut pans
- layer on the streusel mix
- make maple bourbon glaze
- cool donuts on wire rack
- glaze donuts
Here’s a peek at the finished product. I can’t even tell you how excited I was to make these. I have always wanted to make donuts and am so happy to add a couple of donut pans to my baking collection. It also so happens that my Dad loves anything maple walnut flavoured so I made the donuts for him. I may be vegan but that doesn’t stop me from baking. My favorite thing to do is bake for other people.
The Innocent Baker Review June 2019 – Final Thoughts
This will be my third The Innocent Baker review and I am so in love with this subscription. Usually I like to review 3 boxes before making a final decision, but I loved this subscription from the very beginning. Being a baker, this is the perfect box for me. I love the convenience of receiving all the ingredients in one box. I love that everything is already portioned for you, and I LOVE that we receive baking tools. It adds value to the box…..especially this month because I was really wanting to add some donut pans to my collection. This month’s recipe was easy to make (as per usual) and it turned out beautifully. I LOVE that I get to bake a new recipe each month to give to my loved ones. The Innocent Baker makes my heart happy.
