Sticky Buns anyone??

Ok I admit they're alittle bigger than most people would make, next time I'll go for a smaller bun , but they're size doesn't take away from they're taste!! The gooey part of these buns is fantastic!! I made these buns with my Potato Bread recipe that I posted below these buns. I just made the recipe as written , after the first rise I rolled 1/2 of the dough out into a rectangle, it was about 19 inches long and probably 14 inches wide. Don't roll the dough out less than 1/4 of and inch thin or the dough will get tough on you. I used a recipe for the gooey stuff and the cinnamon and sugar for the rectangle on a blog called Sugar and Spice on a post about cinnamon rolls and sticky buns from Peter Reinharts The Bread Bakers Apprentice.  To Read More, Click On The Recipe Title.

Potato Bread

I decided to make Potato Bread today. I have a wonderful recipe that I've made about 5 or 6 times as bread. I have also made this dough into Cinnamon Rolls that were out of this world! Today I made 1 loaf of Potato Bread and a batch of Sticky Buns.

Chocolate Cake with Peanut Butter Frosting

Today is one of my daughters birthdays, Amanda ,she turns 11 today! I'm posting the recipe for her birthday cake , the first recipe on my blog. This is a recipe that I' ve had for at least 30 yrs. I made a chocolate cake with peanut butter frosting , a huge hit in this house! I also have a picture of it which could've been a little lighter in color but we're going to work on that. I have always made this recipe per the instructions but today I made some changes. The original recipe calls for 1 cup of milk , today I used 1 cup of buttermilk. I always used all purpose flour, today I used cake flour, I always made this cake in a 13x9 inch pan, today I made a layer cake. Lots of adaptions !!  To Read More, Click On The Recipe Title
