Pumpkin Muffins and Walnut Pumpkin Bread

It’s that time of year for baking with pumpkin and squash! I bought a pumpkin squash, baked it, and made not only pumpkin muffins but some pumpkin bread, all in one sitting. It’s great to eat the muffins right away and freeze the pumpkin bread for later, give to a friend, or take to a […]

Quick and Easy Blueberry Wedges

Quick and Easy Blueberry Wedges

I love berries of all sorts, but I especially love blueberries. I have a stash of them in my freezer and several boxes of fresh blueberries in my refrigerator. So I thought I would make up a quick snacking kind of dessert for dinner.

Sourdough Latvian Apple Cake

Sourdough Latvian Apple Cake

This is a variation for an old recipe called Latvian Apple Cake. What is so cool about this recipe is that you can substitute just about any fruit and make a terrific dessert. Think pear cranberry, blueberry, peaches, mixed berries, plum pear, apple cranberry, etc. It is an easy elegant dessert and it tastes delicious!

Sourdough Ginger Cake with Blueberries ‘n Cream

I baked up a Sourdough Ginger cake in a bundt pan to take to a get together. This recipe is a variation on my Sourdough Gingerbread cake. Baking it in a bundt pan had the effect of making the cake more dense.

Sourdough Banana Bread with Crumbs

Sourdough Banana Bread with Crumbs

Banana bread is just not quite as good in this baker’s opinion, without the crumbs on top. I find that true for most tea breads and muffins too. There is just something about the crumbs that makes people say, “Wow!” In the past, my boys wanted me to make a loaf of  just “crumbs.” I […]

Chocolate Cinnamon Rye… with Walnuts

Wow, did this bread ever smell great, in dough form, while baking and … while eating! It is at it’s best once cooled and given some time to mellow. I got the inspiration for the chocolate cinnamon blend from Peter Reinhart’s bread, Chocolate Cinnamon Babka, see my post here:  http://www.northwestsourdough.com/discover/?p=900 from his book, Artisan Breads Every […]
