    The Baking Thread

    Are there any other bakers out there? I love to bake, but typically stick to muffins, the occasional donut, and easy loaves I can make in a pan without yeast, starters, what have you. I've been wanting to start to bake my own bread for a few years now, and I think I'm finally going to bite the bullet and attempt to get my own starter going. Has anyone here ever made their own bread? I'm also very interested in baking in my cast iron pan, since I did a few very simple cheddar biscuits as part of a Blue Apron meal a few weeks ago. Anyway, let this be a place where we can all talk about baking processes, baking results, baked goods tried... Cakes, muffins, breads, oh my! And biscuits, cupcakes, tarts, pies, whatever!

    April 2018 SE Exam Results

    I worked at a gov. job as my first job out of college, but jumped ship to the private world after 9 months. I don't think I'll ever get as comprehensive benefits as I would have gotten if I stayed there! And with my luck, by the time I got to the 35 or whatever years it would be to get a pension, they would have long ago gotten rid of pensions. Or worse, just suddenly have gotten rid of them.

    This Wednesday is so slow. Also, I recommended White Claw to some coworkers, one of whom who had never heard of it before.

    I like grapes too. But I don't think they would have worked as well in baked form.

    I don't mind raisins, but in cookies, I do prefer chocolate. But hey, the carrot muffins that I've made twice in the last month needed raisins. The only ones I had on hand were these black maroo raisins, and holy moly, these are the sweetest, juiciest raisins I've ever had. And they're big! They are so good!

    PE Civil Structural 2018 - October 2018 - California

    I can attest that EET's binders covered nearly all the morning questions in the April 2017 exam, so it's at least a two-time thing! But really, I think their AM class does a great job, and that's been said cycle after cycle here on EB.com. As for picking one of the two classes? Based on your scores, I might be tempted to take their structural PM class were I you, and do the morning on my own, purely because your morning score is already quite good. That does not mean, however, that I would forget to still study the AM sections! You don't want to let that score drop. That's my two cents!

    Yayyyy more sourdough! I actually went with my normal recipe. and just changed a couple of things per my weekend schedule. I'm pretty happy with the results -- happy enough to freeze my prettier loaf whole, and take it across the country with me this Friday (defrosting on the plane) to gift to my best friend and her fiance! Here are a couple of pictures of the process (I'm not great at remembering to take pictures before the finished loaf, but remembered to take a few here). Just after the long proof (I used a different set up here to get prominent rings, and it worked!): Post-scoring, ready to go in the oven! Baked: Yummmm!

    I've only ever seen the White Claw. Granted, I only have bought it once (for MDW camping!). It was a hit! With most except for my fiance, who prefers, tequila, whisky, and macrobrews over everything else.
