Belle's Hamburger Buns

Reviewed: Jan. 8, 2012
Do you like the hamburger buns offered in the bar of your favorite special occasion restaurant? You know, the kind of burger that costs $12, before the side of fries? TRY THIS RECIPE!!! If kneading by hand, you will be looking for a very smooth, silky dough. When I made these, I used the egg wash, but once out of the oven, immediately put them into a clean, open plastic bag, so the crust could lightly steam, and make it a bit softer. I have done this in the past as a professional baker, except there it was on large standing racks with a bag that went over the whole rack! ^_^ I put coarse salt on top of the egg wash, but we enjoy a salty flavor.

Amazingly Easy Irish Soda Bread

Reviewed: Dec. 30, 2008
This isn't a perfect Irish Soda Bread, as it contains egg, but I PROMISE you that your family will love it. I take care to frequently "baste" it with the milk/butter wash, and I prefer to bake it on a pizza stone. If you don't own one, GET ONE. You can get a good one for under twenty dollars, and you will be amazed at how wonderful some of your favorite baked goods turn out - they will seem so much more "professional". Also, I like to coat the very bottom of the loaf in a bit of cornmeal - helps to keep the loaf from sticking and burning.
