Quote from: Kidnostad3 on May 24, 2019, 09:20:56 AMI might post an old family recipe for chicken lip pie that was handed down by my English grandmother, but, only if I think it will be truly appreciated.
Quote from: pyewacket on May 23, 2019, 03:37:14 PMThank you for starting this thread, Roswells. I was hoping you would not mind sugar art and cakes joining the party!
Quote from: pyewacket on May 22, 2019, 04:27:13 PMHere is a nice recipe that can make muffins or loaves:Ingredients 1/2 cup butter 1 1/2 cups sugar 1 1/2 tbs vanilla 2 eggs 3 1/2 cups flour 1 tbsp baking powder 1 tsp salt 2 cups milk 2 1/2 cups frozen blueberries, thawedInstructions Preheat oven to 350Â°. Either line the muffin tin with paper liners or spray two loaf pans with non stick spray. Using either an electric hand mixer or stand mixer, cream together the butter, sugar, vanilla and eggs. Add the flour, baking powder and salt to the bowl. Slowly start to incorporate the dry ingredients. As the dry ingredients are being mixed into the butter mixture, slowly pour the milk into the batter. Once all of the ingredients are incorporated, turn the speed up and whip the batter until extremely smooth. Fold in the blueberries. Divide the batter among two loaf pans or muffin tins. Bake at 350Â°. For the muffins, bake for 20-25 minutes. For the quick bread bake for 30-35 minutes or until golden. both should pass the toothpick test before taking out of the oven.Let cool completely before slicing or serving.
Quote from: Roswells, Art on May 24, 2019, 01:51:51 PMOn the contrary, it warms the cockles of my heart to see people sharing their baking/confection adventures and tips and jokes.I haven't done any cake decorating but have been slowly gathering the tools needed. You might have given me the inspiration to finally just go for it. Thanks!
Quote from: whoozit on May 24, 2019, 02:03:26 PMHas anyone tried baking bread with white whole wheat flour? I am thinking of making French bread tomorrow and wondering how it will turn out if I use this instead of regular white flour.
Quote from: K_Dubb on May 24, 2019, 02:06:57 PMYes; despite the appearance, which is pretty white, it tastes a lot more like whole wheat than I expected. For the sweet breads and rolls I make I'll throw a cup or two in if I want something hearty, like hot cross buns, but won't use it 100% or it tastes like health bread.
Quote from: whoozit on May 24, 2019, 02:36:17 PMOK. Iâ€™ll try a 50% mixture and report results.
Quote from: K_Dubb on May 24, 2019, 02:40:06 PMGood luck! I wish I could give you better info on gluten development and texture but I always cheat and add gluten.
Quote from: albrecht on May 24, 2019, 02:48:00 PMI had a cauliflower-flour based pizza a few weeks ago because I was in Cali and someone claims a gluten intolerance. It was pretty good actually though the crust didn't taste quite right. Not a baker but maybe that could be a substitute for people with the condition?
Quote from: SredniVashtar on May 24, 2019, 03:16:33 PMI don't think I've ever had anything gluten-free that wasn't utterly foul. It's tasteless and dry, I don't know why they bother with a substitute if they're as bad as that. What happens to Coeliacs anyway? Do they keel over like the peanut people? Personally, I think they're attention -seeking. Just eat a bloody sandwich and shut up.
Quote from: K_Dubb on May 24, 2019, 03:43:08 PMReading the Mayo Clinic stuff on it, it's associated with everything from anemia and rashes to bloating and irritability. It says the test for it can involve taking a sample from the small intestine (eek) so I suspect self-diagnosis in most cases.
Quote from: SredniVashtar on May 24, 2019, 04:06:00 PMThere always seems to be an ailment du jour that certain people love to bore us about and this sounds like another one. I imagine it's popular with hipsters. Oh, I hate these people so very deeply with their little beards and vanilla lattes.
