It is another crazy-hot summer in Oklahoma but I am still doing a little baking.
I do it all the same time so the oven only gets heated up once.
Last week, I made 3 loaves of banana bread
a pan of brownies - and shhh, don't tell my family but I used a jar of baby food prunes that I found while cleaning out, the recipe called for 1/2 cup of butter - I instead used just 1/4 cup of butter and that tiny jar of prunes. They were delicious too.
I also made a batch of whole wheat bread dough in the machine and added some of the vital wheat gluten I got from Amazon last week. They turned out much lighter than 100% whole wheat normally is.
I am sold on it and will be using it in all my recipes.
This camera angle gives a distorted view-
it makes the hot dog and sandwich buns look bigger than the bread loaves :)
