Today is our big Potato day sale, and here is the baking I’ve done for it. As much as I’ve enjoyed sewing lately my true passion is baking. I. LOVE. TO. BAKE.
I’ve run into problems with selling my baked goods relating to not having a commercially certified kitchen. Who wants they’re food tasting likes it’s coming from a commercial kitchen when it’s supposed to remind you of visiting grandma? Anyway, today I was told it didn’t matter by the people in charge. I took advantage of it.
Got up at 4:30 to bake these babies…yawn.
I love it that my kids’ appreciate my homemade bread. They walk in the door and say, “oooh mom did you make bread? It smells so good in here. We LOVE your bread”.
Perfect for freezing and taking out for last minute meals.
My Mom always used to make these Sour Cream Twists. I decided to make them my own and added raisins to the dough. Super easy, recipe below.
Sour Cream Twists
Dissolve: 1 Tbs yeast into 1/4 c. warm water
Stir in: 3/4 c. lukewarm sour cream
3 Tbs sugar
1/8 tsp baking soda
1 tsp salt
2 Tbs soft shortening
3 c. flour
Turn dough on lightly floured counter and knead just a little. Roll into an oblong 24x6 inches. spread with butter, sprinkle half with brown sugar and cinnamon. Fold other half over. Cut into 24 strips 1 inch wide. Hold strips at end and twist in opposite directions. Place on greased pan 2 inches apart. Let rise for one hour and bake at 350 for 12-15 min. Drizzle with a vanilla or almond glaze.
