I love a good English Muffin. Toasted. Slathered with butter. Or PB and J. Covered with a soft boiled egg. I have made English Muffins before. Once with Alton Brown. Made MomoFuko’s once. They were both tasty. And so are Dorie’s. We had two choices this month for Tuesday with Dorie. Pandowdy or English Muffins.

While most muffins are baked hers are griddled on both sides and then finished in the toaster. And they were quite easy. Took a while but easy.

The recipe is in Dorie’s Baking with Dorie. (page 24) But you can also find it here. Try them. They are great!

For more check out the Bakers from Tuesday with Dorie.

For those of you who don’t know, Dorie Greenspan has a new baking book out. Baking with Dorie: Sweet, Salty Simple. I got my copy in the mail three days ago and it is wonderful. But, then, aren’t all of her cookbooks?

The first recipe we baked for Tuesdays with Dorie was available before the book arrived in a sample gifted us when we preordered the book.

Miso-Maple Loaf and it is very nice. I took it to a church supper, they are guinea pigs for new things and they all loved it. The Hubs liked it so I see that as a HIT!!

The addition of orange zest added a wonderful citrus flavor to this loaf. And along with the maple syrup added a just right sweetness.

The recipe called for white miso, which I did not have (I have brown) so I subbed Tahini paste which one of the members had suggested. I also used mayhaw jelly for the glaze. It called for apricot or orange marmalade but since we are not big jelly eaters I just used what I had on hand. Worked great. Added just a touch of sweetness to the loaf.

Lots of us have been baking with Dorie since forever. Well, at least since 2008. And while I didn’t keep up with the cookies I did do some from Around my French Table and Baking Chez Moi. Always delicious. IT’s wonderful that this group is still going and providing so much encouragement for beginner bakers and ol’ timers like me. Thanks, Dorie, for making it all possible. And thanks to the Steph and Jules who have administered this page for us.

I have to admit the first glance at the recipe name I read Nutella BOTTOMS so I was thinking cookies. I was very glad to find out the recipe read BUTTONS and they were little cup cakes.

These Bouchées, or ‘mouthfulls’, are filled with nutella. Just enough to give a quick sweet taste.

Dorie’s Bonne Idee was to dip them in some chocolate ganache. DONE! I don’t think you can ever have too much chocolate. I only made 1/2 of the recipe which gave me 12 little mini cuppys. I will be making them again.

These are on page 188 of Dorie’s Baking Chez Moi.
