When not stitching………………

It seems that baking is my 2nd fave pastime……more specifically, breads! This time it’s English muffins, of the sourdough variety. My “starter” is doing very well these days, so, finding recipes to incorporate it is a must. Last week’s Belgian waffles were wonderful (and the leftovers, toasted, made awesome “shortcake” for our very prolific strawberry pickings!) but I was in the mood for trying something different.

Back in 1974(!) I purchased this fab bread book that has been “used to death” over the years…….IMG_1431 The recipes have proven to be dependable and this latest was no exception…………. IMG_1432 Using my very well seasoned electric fry pan (a wedding gift!), the results were more than satisfactory!………………… IMG_1429 IMG_1430 

But…….now……back to stitching………..

    Do you make your own?

  3. Wow Ms. Doreen,
    I agree with Patricia, they look as if you bought them. I’ve been working on cinnamon bread and shortbread. I’m going to continue and see which new one I will try.

    Wow, Doreen they look just like the bought ones, bet they taste better tho’. Am having a go at making my own starter from the recipe I found on the page you had on here. ( memory is not as good as it used to be ) it was about a week ago. I am on day 4 so it should be ready tomorrow, so far it looks good, fingers crossed.

      Awesome!! The starter I used for the muffins was very “young” and had just been recently fed so the real tartness hadn’t developed yet. I love the aroma of a starter (yeasty, mildly alcoholic)! Breads made with a starter really seem to have a better shelf-life because of the Ph level. Let me know how it goes for ya. I do use a lot of the hints/some recipes from the King Arthur Flour site but have not ordered any of their products/flours.
