Okay, so who says that Oprah gets to own "Favorite Things". I know we have talked about some of my fav's in the past.....Torani Syrups, Tomato paste in a tube, The Big Green Egg but this little brown bag from King Arthur Flour has got to be a staple in anyones home if you love cinnamon. I LOVE CINNAMON. I just happened upon this product. No one recommended this. I was looking to buy the finest cinnmon in the world.....vietnamese cinnamon. King Arthur Flour carries it in their store in Vermont and also does mailorder. Also, if you bake and don't get this catalog go to http://www.kingarthurflour.com/. Now, I know you are saying to yourself....I can buy flour, extracts etc. in the store why would I mail order flour. Some stores do carry their items but definately not all of their items. Their flour in my opinion is one of the best to bake with. The one item I have never seen anywhere is the "cinnamon filling". You get a 24 oz. bag for $5.95 which is enough to make several batches of buns or 4 loaves or so of bread. You mix 1/4 c. of mix with 1 tablespoon of water......THAT'S IT. It makes this gloopy gloppy schloppy wonderful cinnamon schmear. You just spread on your dough and bake. It will be better than any cinnamon bread or bun you have ever made yourself. It is truly bakery quality......it stays thick and moist. I have to pace myself or I would eat a whole loaf of this stuff. I cheat and buy frozen bread dough from schwans....thaw in the fridge overnight.....pull it out to rise.....roll it out....schmear it on and bake for 40 minutes. Shipping is only like $5.95 also so it is worth trying. You won't regret it and if you do I will send you a check for $5.95 less shipping and handling. What are you waiting for??? GO ORDER IT NOW!!!!!!!!! This stuff is soooo good that one of the girls that babysits for us on our date night requires this cinnamon bread as payment and will except NO MONEY. THAT IS HOW GOOD IT IS!!!
Sourdough starter update: Sourdough starter is looking good. Had my first signs of hooch yesterday which is a good thang. We are going on 3 days today. I feed it everyday at 4:00. In about a week we will be looking at making sourdough bread bowls to fill with some kind of homemade soup. Who's coming for supper??
