Buttermilk Honey Wheat Bread

Reviewed: Nov. 13, 2008
I am making this recipe for the first time, chiefly because I had some buttermilk that needed to be used up. I am an experienced baker from scratch, and I intended to bake it in the oven in a loaf pan. I am used to "tweaking" recipes, but I didn't add more flour to the mixture, even though it seemed very soupy. It has been sitting for the first rising for about 1 hour and 20 min. and it is rising a little, but I don't see how I can form it into a loaf. I have a bread machine, but I doubt very much if the results would be any different. I looked back to see if somebody had found out the original author had submitted the wrong amount of flour. I used good bread flour, not all-purpose, and good WW flour. I make two loaves of wheat sandwich every week (good for toast) and that uses 3 C. of WW flour and 3 1/3 C. of bread flour. This makes one loaf- shouldn't this call for about half that amount of flour in one loaf? I hate to think I wasted the ingredients, let alone the labor. I mixed it up in my Kitchen Aid too, as one of the other reviewers did. What is wrong here? If it doesn't do better in another half hour, I'll probably try a different recipe. You have a great site- but this recipe so far is a disappointment.

Old Fashioned Carrot Pudding

Reviewed: Oct. 15, 2009
My mother made a very similar recipe that came from my great aunt Ethel who was born in 1878. There was hardly any instructions on the recipe card and it is steamed in the oven, but no oven temp was mentioned. I use one stock pot surrounded by about 4 C. water, then put pudding into a smaller stock pot, one inside the other, steam at 250 degrees for about 3 hours. It is the most heavenly stuff! You wouldn't think it's rich, but it is. About 3/4 C. per serving is usually enough, and I make extra hard sauce to spoon over it, but without the lemon. Thanks for submitting your version- it will help me to tweak mine. It does make the house smell divine!
