2018 Edition - What are you baking?

That first batch was a little flat, so I made them again with a couple tweaks. I added a teaspoon of baking powder and creamed together the butter, sugar, eggs and vanilla. They turned out much better

Shokupan

I’m working on a bread machine recipe for Japanese shokupan. If you’ve never had this lovely, pillowy, perfectly square sandwich bread, you are in for a treat! I promise to post the recipe when I’m done tweaking it.

This first loaf came out pretty well. It’s a bit salty, not quite sweet enough, and the shokupan that remember from my days in Japan was a bit denser. It’s not a failure though, by any means! And I love my new Pullman loaf pan.

Y'all are killin' me here with your wonderful looking and sounding baked goods.

Tyler and I "made" blueberry muffins the other day, but they were from a Krusteaz boxed mix.

GG....I LOVE chocolate cookies with peanut butter chips! My mama used to make those.

I baked cornbread to go with the ham and bean soup. Nothing exciting.

I made an apple galette for Sunday supper. Forgot to take a picture. I might make another when we get home, since today's (yesterday's) version and I had a bit of a fight. I was having crust "issues" because it's been so cold and dry here. Seemed like nothing wanted to blend. Had a really hard time rolling/patting out a circle. I was afraid it would be a tough, tough crust. Nope! *whew* My patchwork crust was what my Nana would call "short" - a very tender, flaky crust. It. Was. Yummy.
