Raspberry Braided Bread

Jim and I spent four days in Vermont last week at King Arthur Flour taking “Principals and Practice of Bread Making.” I made the Raspberry Braided Bread tonight as the first of many recreations from our newly acquired bread-making skills.

Glen-Mor Muffins

We made several batches of Glen-Mor Restaurant muffins in the past few days, my office colleagues will benefit tomorrow from our baking. I wanted to share one of my favorite baking photos taken to date. We have only a few recipes remaining in the bread basket, including Cranberry Orange Muffins and Cornbread (again) because [...]

Apple Cinnamon Muffins II

This is my third apple muffin recipe since starting this cookbook project, following the first Apple Cinnamon Muffins attempt and then Apple Oat Muffins. This version matches those baked at the Glen-Mor Restaurant, so technically we are done with apple muffins. But I imagine there will be more apple muffins in our future, especially once [...]

Blueberry Muffins

The Glen-Mor Restaurant used a base muffin batter and mixed in different fillings to make blueberry, cranberry, date, and apple muffins. The first attempt at Blueberry Muffins required a little tweaking because I used a a few too many blueberries. The final recipe is easy to make with perfect results. We will make the [...]

Hot Cross Buns

The Glen-Mor Restaurant served Hot Cross Buns only once a year on Easter, and because these were not frequently on the menu, no one can remember them. This recipe what I imagine the Glen-Mor Hot Cross Buns tasted like, even though I never ate at the restaurant.

Servings: 12
