Thanks, JoeV!

I thought that you made the dough with your new Bosch Universal.
Sounds easy to do though.

Thanks again! :cooking: :wow:

we want to make sourdough english muffins this week....we got a deal on some rings for them...do you have a recipe for the sour dough version?

English Muffins (Lower calorie variant)
From the Kitchen of: Joe Valencic
Makes 12 or 20 Muffins

Ingredients:

11-1/2 oz. of 2% milk
11-1/2 oz. warm water (less than 110F)
3 Packets Stevia (or 3T white sugar)
1-1/2t Salt
1-1/2T Shortening (Crisco)
2-1/2t Instant yeast
19-1/2 oz. All purpose flour
1-1/2t Baking powder
As Required – Non-stick spray
As Required – Yellow cornmeal


* Special equipment: electric griddle, 3-inch metal rings. Cast iron pan is optional; just make sure you have a cover that fits the pan. Be careful, as the heat is hard to control with cast iron.

Directions:

In a bowl, combine the milk, water, Stevia, and salt, and microwave for 1 minute on high power. Let cool to less than 110F. In a ramekin or small bowl, microwave shortening for 15 seconds on high to melt, then quickly whisk it into the warm milk mixture. Add the flour and beat thoroughly with wooden spoon or whisk. Cover the bowl and let it rest in a warm spot for 30 minutes.

Preheat the griddle to 300 degrees F.

Add the 1-1/2 teaspoon of baking powder to mixture and beat thoroughly. Place metal rings onto the griddle and spray with vegetable spray. Dust pan bottom inside the rings with fine cornmeal. Using #20 ice cream scoop, place 2 level scoops into each ring and cover with a pot lid or cookie sheet and cook for 6 minutes. Remove the lid, remove rings from muffins and flip muffins with spatula. Cover with the lid and cook for another 6 minutes or until golden brown. Place on an open wire rack and cool. Split with fork, toast and serve with your favorite topping.

I never made a sourdough version. If I was to make them, I would use my my starter that's 50/50 flour/water. Replace half of the flour & water in the recipe with that amount of 50/50 starter.

Here's the formula:

19-1/2 oz. starter
11-1/2 oz. of 2% milk
9-3/4 oz. warm water (less than 110F)
3 Packets Stevia (or 3T white sugar)
1-1/2t Salt
1-1/2T Shortening (Crisco)
2-1/2t Instant yeast
9-3/4 oz. All purpose flour
1-1/2t Baking powder
As Required – Non-stick spray
As Required – Yellow cornmeal


NOTE: This recipe is better to be little on the loose side, rather than stiff. The batter will flow better to fill the rings so the muffins rise more evenly. Be sure to spray the rings with cooking spray, or you'll be cleaning up a mess. :yum:
I know if I need add a bit more water, based on how the batter handles. Only experience will let you know.

DO NOT REMOVE COVER DURING 6 MINUTE BAKE. PEEKING IS NOT ALLOWED.

Going on my annual Winter Hike outing with the Old Farts Patrol this weekend. I decided to make the bread for the outing today, as I have a busy week. Four loaves of whole wheat sandwich bread. Just need to slice & freeze it.

My sausage breads (4 loaves) are in the oven. Will probably make some over easy to dip the sausage bread in.

Today is my last day in my trainee job in the caring center for elderly. I made these mocha pieces to my workmates:

Nice rye bread. By the recipe I saw it is Swedish origin. Difference between Swedish and Finnish versions of the rye breads is that Swedish ones are sweeter (molasses, seeds and orange zest). But sure its tasty too.

I didn't have an orange, so I missed that particular part. It is cooking now and a line is developing to taste it.

Made up some sandwich thins & hot dog buns with my Slovenian White Bread recipe, and using lard instead of butter. Gives a little different flavor than butter in the dough.

Tomorrow I'll be conducting an in-home bread baking class for a friend and his daughter who is 8 months pregnant. She's on maternity leave from her job as a sous chef, and wants to make homemade bread for her and her family. The Dad is along to learn to my "tricks," which he's convinced I have, in order to make such nice looking and flavorful breads. I tried to tell him that when you make over 100 loaves of bread each year for almost 7 years, you're bound to get better with each loaf. :wink:
