My buttermilk cluster attempts.


Well, this was my 1st try at the buttermilk cluster. Also my 1st "no bread machine bread". Tasted good, but didn't rise very well so they were a little dense. I used some vital wheat gluten and an old yeast.



My 2nd try came out much better. A new yeast and no additive. I sliced a bun up and toasted it this morning. Now that was good. I started a batch of no-knead bread last night and it should be ready for the oven as I type this. Wish me luck. Dave.

Thank you that is a very nice compliment!  Do lot's of reading and keep baking and you will be surprised how quick it all comes together.  Use the best and freshest ingredients you can get...  I still keep practicing and reading and learning as much as I have time...it's addicting and like play time for me!

I actually wanted to comment that I like your screen name.  My hubby has a '07 Nomad that he/we love to ride on.  He's put a bunch of miles on this yr already.


Keep baking and sharing!

Thanks. Mine was a '00. Sold to a friend and bought the VN2000. I just needed all that extra power :)

That's really pretty!  It kind of reminds me of the meanstreak, I think?  Good for you.


Bread and bikes....two nice hobbies!
