I am a novice when it comes to baking, I can do it but I don't do it enough. quick breads that don't require yeast I do very well with like irish soda bread, Bananna bread ect... I recently made my mom's orange marmalde bread (yeast dough) about 2 weeks ago and I was amazed how well it came out. This past sunday I made Brioche muffins, it's french and takes time. My mom has been making these every Thanksgiving for 30 years and hers come out nicely shaped. The recipe said it makes 24 but some how I got 28 out of the dough, after the dough has risen twice, you have to make medium sized balls (size of tennis ball, place in muffin cups then make and indentation in the top with your thumb and make another ball about the size of a ping pong ball maybe a touch smaller, sercure with a took pick, brush with egg and bake. Well my muffins came out smaller than hers, and the ball or nub as I call it on top was the size of a penny LOL. I tasted one and it was delicious. I told her about it and she said she makes only 18 and her muffins are bigger and so is the nub on top. I thought, not bad for my first time. I froze them like she said and will be serving them with the Easter dinner I am hosting. I look at this way if they taste great maybe no one will notice how they look (except mom LOL)

I am terrible at art, so guess that is why I am not a good bread maker. nita
