Day 20, The End of Week 4!

Today is also the end of our first 4-week class.  Monday, we start Baking 112 (our classes go 111, 112, 211, 212, don't ask me why)!

Well, I finished this half of the term with everything done and all but one thing checked off.  That's not too shabby!  I got a B+ on our written test yesterday, which is actually a 91 (the grading scale is pretty tough).

Here are the doughnuts before frying.  

And after frying...

And after glazing.  

I don't think I like this particular doughnut recipe.  They were not as light as I feel non-cake doughnuts should be, but maybe that's just me.  I like a doughnut that is mostly air.  :-)

I got my pitas checked off!

Look, they poofed!  They have pockets!

And finally, my apple pie.  It got done but not checked off.  It didn't get done early enough, sadly.

Pitas are very interesting to bake. You put them in a 500 degree oven (or hotter) for like 3 minutes, flip them over, let them cook another minute and pull them out.  

Next week we start on Aritisan breads. much goodness to come!

  1. I look forward to hearing about the breads! I bake bread pretty regularly despite work craziness but have gotten into a rut of making same cracked wheat almost all the time. Not that it is bad!
