Milk Bars Recipes Are Posted Online, so We Tried Them. Should You?
Why buy a dessert when you can pour hours into making one?
You might know Christina Tosi from her role as a judge on the competition show Master Chef, but the acclaimed chef is more than just a TV personality, she’s the founder of the world-famous Milk Bar. This bakery opened its first location in New York City and, after serious success and an Instagram-friendly cake, expanded, now with locations across the U.S. While visiting Milk Bar is an experience not to be overlooked, namely because you leave smelling like a fresh-baked cake, there’s also the option—for those without easy access to a store—to create the famous desserts at home. Though my Milk Bar location is an easy 15-minute drive, I decided, why not make my life a little harder? Baking has been the quarantine trend and, after a loaf of banana bread here and a tray of cookies there, it seemed time to take on the next challenge: Milk Bar’s menu. If you’re trying to decide whether to Postmates or preheat your oven, allow my trial and errors and sometimes successes to help. Secure your sprinkles and ready your mixer, we’re baking our way through Milk Bar’s recipe collection.
