I grew up eating all things that could be made with strawberries and rhubarb. However, I have never made anything with rhubarb until tonight. Half of this pan was gone pretty quickly and was enjoyed with fresh whipped cream. We covered at least four food groups: fruit, veggies, grains and dairy. Summer baking with fresh fruit is fun. This bake taught me that it is fun to make a dessert connected to memories of childhood. An apple pie has been requested for Father’s Day. Let’s see that making my first pie crust from scratch has to teach me.

Strawberry Rhubarb Crisp, June 18, 2020

This weeks bakes were sourdough bread, banana bread with or without chocolate chips, and cinnamon or cinnamon raisin. Banana bread with chocolate chips was the most popular bake of the week. I made 36 mini loaves of the banana bread, 15 cinnamon or cinnamon raisin and three loaves of sourdough.

“Every loaf teaches me something”

I learned how importance baking soda is.
These loaves taught me that salt is very important to the taste of bread. They also taught me that 45 minutes in the oven was too long.
These loaves taught me that 35 minutes in the oven is better, but it still might not be the final answer.
First attempt at Sourdough English Muffins
They turned out. This is definitely a recipe I will use again. It is from the King Arthur Flour website.
