Sugar High Fridays #50: The Roundup

Posted by bakinghistory on December 26, 2008


Thank you to all participants who contributed wonderful recipes on the theme of rolled cakes and to Jennifer of The Domestic Goddess for founding this wonderful event and the opportunity to host this edition of Sugar High Fridays.

I received each submission with great anticipation and enjoyed reading every one of them. Some were from bloggers I know and some from others that I am glad to have discovered and that I will keep reading. Some recipes are simple and some more elaborate, yet all of them are scrumptious and worth trying. Thank you!!

renato-bolo-de-rolo-shfRenato of Sugar Nut made Bolo de Rolo, a traditional Brazilian rolled cake, from the region of Pernambuco State.
