I missed the nectarine cake 2 weeks ago, so I’ll have to come back to that someday. (I have the nectarines in the fridge, but just haven’t had the chance to bake the cake. Too many trips out of town lately.) So today I made vegetarian spaghetti sauce with zucchini, onions, eggplant, and tomatoes from my garden, and baked up the whole wheat loaves to go with it for dinner. I almost killed my kitchenaid mixer in the process, but thankfully, after the smoke cleared and the engine cooled, it now turns on again. Maybe hand-kneading is in order for whole wheat loaves from now on.
Yesterday I went on a mission to find malt extract. None at the grocery store, none at our local kitchen store, but alas, success at the Staple and Spice Market. I should have gone there first!
Rising for the second time in the loaf pans…
Warm homemade bread and butter…one of the good things in life.
