These Baking Black Women Are All About The Sweet Life - Focusa2z Connects World


Throwing down in the kitchen isn’t all about whipping up savory dishes. While we love spending time trying out recipes from our favorite Kenyan or Caribbean foodies, Black women know how to do the damn thing on the pastry side too.

After all, who doesn’t like getting their hands on a sweet treat that will have you licking your fingers from time to time? From moist cakes and decadent pies to mouth-watering biscuits, we found a few baking Black women who do it all.

If you’ve got a tasty craving that needs to be satisfied, let these three baking bosses introduce you to the sweet life. Grab some flour and your mixer because these ladies are dishing out recipes that we’re sure you’ll want to try this weekend. Enjoy!

Chocolate For Basil

Jerrelle Guy never imagined she’d be a baker, especially considering she has a degree in illustration. Yet the 29-year-old has already released her first cookbook, Black Girl Baking, been nominated for a James Beard Award, and earned the praise of celebrated chefs like Carla Hall. Her love for weird combos like black bean brownies and brown sugar strawberry jalapeno lime pie are what have made her a fan favorite.

Me in my kitchen 1.3 years later. My cookbook released 4 months ago, and this week it put me on the @forbes Under 30 channel! ⭐😵 This cookbook was one of the most difficult projects I've ever made. It took countless hours of hard, physical, lonely work, and it was, and still is, a lot of emotional work too. It's crazy because most of the time I feel like I still don't know what the hell I'm doing or where on earth I'm headed, what project–of the 10 I have opened–to actually dive into to. I'm always telling people I'm in "transition" 🤷🏾‍♀️?? I just want to acknowledge and share this part of my journey that feels so messy when I'm in the thick of it. Sometimes I'm so caught up in the small things, the bigger picture is impossible to see, or I've just convinced myself I'm not strong enough to navigate through it. But then moments like this happen, when the veil lifts, and I come to the same realizations for the thousandth time 1. We are all exactly where we’re supposed to be RIGHT NOW on our own individual journeys. 2. When we make sure to do what we love everyday, the universe sends us all the things we need to keep on doing it. 3. Eventually, everything really does work itself out. Thank you so much @abigailcoughler for this beautiful piece! 💕💕💕I shared the link in the bio
