These muffins here are not mediocre! They are fantastic. You can find the recipe for them here.
What we did yesterday as a demo and today as a lab was mediocre. I really was questioning whether or not I should blog about this lab, but my students convinced me that I should share my opinion about the new Duncan Hines whole wheat muffin mixes. So here goes.
I raved in the previous post about these Buttermilk Biscuits. Southern Living shared four variations of the Buttermilk Biscuits and here is one of them. These Cinnamon-Raisin Biscuits quoting GI Joe ” are vacation good!” Before jumping in the kitchen to prepare them take the time to read the post on Buttermilk biscuits and make the following changes. You’ll have a breakfast hit on your hands.
I have been drooling over these biscuits for 2 1/2 years! Why have I not made these sooner you ask? It is a little bit of a change. You see I have been making these since I was 12 years old. They are good!
My Gosh, I have been cheating myself. These biscuits are absolutely the best I’ve ever eaten. And I have tasted my share of biscuits. 2,000 to be exact! I didn’t even figure in the ones that I baked nor the ones I’ve eaten at friends and family. So I know biscuits. WRONG! These are incredible. I first saw them in Southern Living in November of 2007. I even pulled the recipe out to save and try later. I just kept looking at it thinking, ” They can’t be that great.”
My students made this recipe and I wanted to post something different. So here it is Buttermilk Biscuits that got pushed to the back burner. After all I have made buttermilk biscuits many times in my life. What’s the big deal? It appeared again last month in Southern Living Our Test Kitchen Secrets. Secret? What could be so secret about making biscuits?
Who does not love a good old-fashioned pound cake? I love its simplicity. It doesn’t call for anything fancy. Even after it has dried out a bit put in the oven for a few minutes and you have something special to enjoy with your morning coffee. I will admit that chocolate pound cake found here is my favorite. But you can’t have chocolate every time. There’s a place for just a plain poundcake. This Cream Cheese Pound Cake can be a bit of a troublemaker for me. I never had a problem with it until I got a new mixer and a new oven. Trust me it is not the taste. I love the almond and vanilla flavors. They are truly a match made in heaven. To make sure that the crumb of the cake is just right it is a combination of the proper mixing of fat and sugar plus the correct cooking time. Well, this one turned out just about perfect.

These are absolutely the best pancakes that I have ever made. The tangy taste of the pancake with the honey and butter is perfect!
This is the third time today that I have prepared pancakes. I know I am a crazy cook! Not really. I just walked out of the door without my camera this morning. I’m really glad that I forgot it otherwise I would not have made this combination.
In class today I used one of the variations of pancakes on the Bisquick box that makes a light and fluffy texture. I added very large frozen blueberries which thawed as I mixed the pancakes. As they came off the griddle I dusted them with powdered sugar. They were devoured by the starving teens that were left with chins that sparkled with sugar dust.
