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 October The Innocent Baker box….

What We Need to Purchase
To make the recipe the only additional items we need are butter, whipping cream, eggs, sour cream, and boiling water.
The recipe was organized nicely, complete with numbered steps and photos. It also tells us the prep time (30 minutes) and the baking time (20-22 minutes). I found it easy to follow, with a total number of 9 steps. Here’s the overview:
