Today’s question to ponder . . . Why is it always the good spoons that accidentally drop into the disposal? Never the old hand-me-down silverware that you use for cooking, but the shiny new (-ish) stuff you got for wedding gifts. Hmmm.
I can tell you that if you like to bake at home and you need one more reason to get The Bread Baker’s Apprentice, here it is. These English Muffins are so over and above anything you have ever bought, and I don’t say that lightly. These are so delicious they will even convert those who don’t usually care for English Muffins (i.e., the husband).
I really never even thought is was possible to make English Muffins at home until I got to this recipe in the book. And still, I had a few reservations about getting that cornmeal crusted top and bottom and the ‘nooks and crannies’, but I was not disappointed. The recipe consists of a yeast dough that has risen and is cooked in a skillet and finished in the oven. Much easier than I had expected and with terrific results.
Later this week I’ll have a few recipes for things to do with these. In the mean time, you can take a look at the book here.
