When I make these for work, I'm going to plump some raisins, add chopped walnuts and coconut. Make them as muffins for easy serving.
Plump the raisins in a little boiling water and a shot of Myers Dark Rum!

I made this chocolate loaf and omitted the cream cheese spread. Served it for dessert with vanilla ice cream:

I copied this recipe and will make it for my Son and his family. They love chocolate and peanut butter together. DH doesn't like chocolate and as a diabetic, I really don't think I should be eating it.

I'm playing in flour today. Trying another English muffin recipe. I have one I've used for years but the last two times I made muffins using that recipe they just didn't ring my chimes like they used to.

So...I've been testing different new (to me) recipes this week. Made an Alton Brown one on Monday that was fabulous and will tweak it to alter the height of the muffins. Translated that means less dough per ring. Otherwise they were superb. One of the great things about his method is that they are cooked on an electric griddle. Loved that!

Today I'm making a recipe from the King Arthur flour folks. So far, so good and I have great expectations for these muffins, too.

When I am baking a pie, I brush the bottom crust with a light egg wash and let it air dry in the fridge while I am preparing the filling. Then placing it on the bottom rack gives me a well done bottom crust. The dried egg wash helps prevent it from becoming soggy from the juices of the fruit. In spite of tossing the fruit lightly in flour, there are still juices. Which is a good thing. But they are thickened juices.
