Do you use the recipe from The Fresh Loaf site? I think it was you who linked to it once before - it's so good!


What did you replace the buttermilk with? The recipe does look superyum!

I think I've finally found my perfect scone recipe! So light and fluffy. This morning I made a batch of currant scones and a batch of cinnamon/maple scones with a maple glaze.


Ooh, I want to hear more about this scone recipe!

Here you go!

2 cups (10 ounces) all-purpose flour
1 tablespoon baking powder
3 tablespoons sugar
½ teaspoon salt
5 tablespoons cold Earth Balance, cut into small pieces
½ cup currants, (optional)
1 cup coconut milk (full-fat) - you could probably use soy creamer here, or just plain soy milk in a pinch, but the higher fat content makes them better

1. Adjust oven rack to middle position and heat oven to 425°F.

2. Sift together dry ingredients, and cut in Earth Balance. Mix in currants, if using.

3. Stir in coconut milk with a fork until combined. Sprinkle in more flour if dough is too wet. (I usually need to add at least a couple more tablespoons at this point, but it will still be very, very wet. I don't roll and cut, so I leave it wet because it makes for more tender scones)

4. Drop dough onto Silpat mat or parchment paper-lined pan and pat into 8" round with floured hands. Cut into 6 wedges (I use a pizza cutter), leaving the round intact. Bake for 12 minutes, then remove the pan from the oven and re-cut the wedges, separating them on the sheet. Bake for another 3 minutes, until golden brown and set.

If you want to cut round scones, you will have to add enough flour to make that possible, but be sure to keep it to a minimum as the more flour you add the tougher the scones will be.

5. Let cool on pan until firm enough to move to a cooking rack.

Makes 6 massive, Starbucks-sized scones.

I made Chloe's beer chocolate cupcakes with Irish whiskey buttercream frosting and caramel drizzle. The cupcakes were awesome but the frosting was an epic fail. The consistency got all weird after adding the booze and it tasted just like powdered sugar regardless. Now I'm on the hunt for a good, all purpose "base" frosting recipe, if anyone has any suggestions.

Dropscone, I know I posted this somewhere, but in general, long, cold, slow rises (ie in the fridge) yield a much more flavorful yeasted dough. The rises take much longer, but flavor is much better :)



I knew it was true in theory, but I'm usually too impatient for delicious hot bread!

I have two loaves of pumpkin cinnamon cream cheese babka in the oven right now. Here's hoping this experiment works! Not that I took any notes or anything useful like that.

poopiebitch!!! sorry! kept missing this thread. yes, just sour the soymilk with vinegar (i may have used less than the recipe called for and just made up the diff with water).
also, had no bran, subbed flax meal, used grits instead of polenta..... and i didn't use honey, i used a squitch of agave (at home i would use molasses) just for moisture. sorry recipe author, i am a bad bad person.
i shouldn't have bothered with the agave though because struan, i just slice and freeze and only eat toasted, so no need to worry about moisture (duh). and yes, it is the fresh loaf. like nearly every other recipe i bake.

also, made anpan yesterday!! and cornbread! yum.

oooooooooh. so jealous. i love japanese and chinese pastries, but they are usually so animal-laden. anpan always remind me i want to buy pineapple buns, but the ones i've seen always have egg and i think lard? way to make tasty sweets, torque!

my five-year-old and i made blueberry muffins today. they're pretty good. vanilla blueberry though, and i'm slightly more keen on lemon blueberry.

Nectarine and marzipan slice from the Cooking For Vegans site ... I have made it before several times ... easy, pre-prep suitable and it is for a University friend of my husband who will be here for a late lunch today ...

I've been making soft pretzel bread from Keepin' It Kind. So good! I made a few loaves last night with Isa's cashew queso and it got devoured. I admit i've always been a rush and skipped out on the boiling step. I found out that brushing or dunking the loaves in baking soda and water gives them that pretzel-y flavor.

i wanted cookies, but i'm out of milks, so i made a pie crust, sprinkled cinnamon and sugar on it, rolled it up, and cut it into slices to be baked. this might be the most important thing my mother ever taught me to make. it's basically the perfect food.

This morning I baked three small loaves of struan, two loaves of cinnamon raisin bread, and some anpan. I still have to make some pizza dough (some for tomorrow and the rest for the freezer) and a few other things for an order but that stuff is boring.

I am baking pumpkin whoopie pies. I was planning on using Ricemellow cream as the filling, but i also have some tofutti cream cheese in the fridge. Do you think cream cheese marshmallow filling would be good?

I made pumpkin bars with cream cheese frosting yesterday. Straight from the Betty Crocker cookbook. They tasted like school lunch, which was exactly what I was going for. I really want to make oatmeal cream pies now.

Yesterday I baked a couple loaves of bread and some chocolate banana bread pudding.

This morning I made some fat free, stevia-sweetened ginger applesauce muffins. Because I am an idiot. Not worth it.

I made a great oatmeal pumpkin loaf that was great. I eat it for breakfast with some maple syrup. Tasty. I also made sweet potato biscuits. Next on my list is coconut cupcakes.
