I baked a few things today:
The Pampered Chef, Ltd.
(I used pastry instead of won ton wrappers and left out the black olives--made 1/2 batch). I give these a thumbs' up for ease of prep, cost, and taste.
I also made a patch of whole-wheat Parkerhouse rolls. I used my usual recipe
1 c warm water to which 4 T powdered buttermilk were added
2 c ww flour
1 c AP flour
1 tsp salt
1-1/2 tsp sugar
2 tsp yeast
1 T butter
I do these in the bread machine. Liquid first, 1 c flour, salt, remaining flour. Make a well in the middle, sugar, yeast. Put 1/4 of the butter in each of the corners of the bread pan, dough setting. Grease a glass bread pan, roll dough into log, cut, brush between each piece, line up in pan, let rise 20 minutes, bake 18-22 min. at 350.
I also did my take on this gingerbread recipe:
Eat Cake Novel - Amazing Gingerbread cake
I used 1T ginger, added some white pepper, 1-1/2 tsp grated fresh ginger, 1/2 c black Strap molasses, 1/2 fancy, 1/2 c Muscodavo sugar. Verdict--not dense enough, too cake like. I'll keep trying the recipes suggested. It is very good, but not what I had in mind re: finding a recipe similar to the one the DH's grandma made.
And that's all I baked today.
