I need to ask Spike about how I can take pictures with my phone camera and then upload them to the computer. I have never felt the need to learn how to do a lot of things with my phone except to add names along with a couple of stupid time consuming games. Time to come into today's world.

Almost out of bread, so I made a loaf of multi-grain with whole wheat and oatmeal. Great bread for toast!

I baked a batch of muffins from a magazine recipe I've had for decades, "Aunt Maude's 5-Star Blueberry Muffins". It calls for 1 3/4 cups of AP flour. I currently have an abundance of both white whole wheat and cake flours, so I made my own AP flour - kinda. 1 cup of cake flour and 3/4 cup white whole wheat. They look good! I'll find out how they taste when they cool.

Great, looks yummy. How could you smooth the surface of the cake? I never get success in giving that much smoothness.

I finally got around to using the new loaf pan I bought last month. I made a loaf of white whole wheat bread earlier this week; it made a guest appearance in tonight's dinner thread in our BLT sandwiches.

I really like Banana Nut Bread and was watching this on YouTube
and felt that I needed to make it.



My variation was using Sour Cream and Pecans

The batter filled the loaf pan more than 2/3 full,
so I scooped out 3 Jumbo Muffins worth and
it seemed to work out that way.
Personally, I think that's the best Banana Nut bread
I've ever made and I don't really like Bananas.
Come to find out, DH does not care for Banana Bread at all!
Miss Neighbor-Across-The-Street got a nice treat

Sorry I didn't see this earlier. The frosting is liquid. I combine chocolate, corn syrup and butter and heat it in the microwave briefly to melt it. Then mix like crazy until it's smooth and shiny. Then I let it sit for a while so it will thicken a bit and I pour it over the cake spreading it so it covers the whole cake.

What wonderful baked goods you folks make!
I rarely bake because I'm just not good at it but occasionally I'm in the mood. This Peach/Almond Cobbler will be the dessert tonight, and I posted the recipe for anyone interested.
