I’m Cambrea, the classically trained Pastry Chef turned Recipe Developer and Food Photographer behind Cambrea Bakes.
Located in the heart of the desert in Phoenix, Arizona, I received my degree in French Baking and Pastry Arts and worked as a full-time pastry chef for 6 years. Now I share beautiful and easy baked goods that are modern twists on the classic recipes!
what You'll Find at Cambrea Bakes
twists on classic baked good recipes
Here at Cambrea Bakes, we love to bake unique dishes to share with our friends, family, and community.
Chocolate and vanilla macarons are classic French macaron flavors, but what about sweet and nutty malted dark chocolate macarons that taste just like a chocolate milkshake, or sweet and sour sour watermelon macarons that taste identical to the classic sour candies?
You'll find many more creative twists on classics that dare I say are even better than the original, like rich, decadent, and nutty brown butter espresso brownies that are so easy and will impress anyone you share them with.
Or try out these chocolate chip oreo cookies made with a homemade oreo cookie crumb that tastes just like store-bought Oreos.
comfort food and savory dishes
Because baked goods aren't just desserts!
Homemade pizza night is just an hour away with this fluffy pizza dough that's baked to perfection with a crisp outside and chewy inside.
If you're looking for an accompaniment to dinner or a great appetizer, no-knead focaccia bread melts in your mouth with its olive-oil and herb crust and super pillowy texture.
