Good morning everyone,
Any plans for your weekends? Yesterday I did more dutch oven baking with a gluten free upside down cake-which actually baked better than in my gas oven in less time. This cake is difficult to bake done in the middle so in the house oven half way into the baking time I put a piece of parchment paper on top and then check often til done-but outdoors it baked much more evenly.
I only use mixes for a couple gluten free baked goods as I know it will turn out and sometimes just easier. The fruit I used in this one was a can of drained no sugar fruit cocktail and diced fresh pears. I set up the dutch oven the same as when I do my pies-on a trivet inside the dutch oven in a glass or glazed pottery pan, coals on top and on the bottom around the edge just barely under the oven. Next time though I will place maybe two or three hot coals under the dutch oven around the center so for this it will carmalize better -but was very pleased.
I ended up doing a grilled friday too-grilled italian brats, pork and beans doctored up a bit, grilled onions, peppers, my own canned chantrelle mushrooms-the cake was dessert.
I am off to take a short walk this morning and gather up some more goldenrod before it gets rained on -thinking of experimenting dyeing artists papers-not sure yet.
Those of you that set up linky parties here on your blog-what company or sites do you like to use?? I tried a couple for my Creativity Wednesdays on my Hummingbird Woodland Studio blog and one I just couldn't get to work-and the other one I didn't like, had to pay to personalize it which I thought was a bit much? Anyways if I get allot of participation a link set up would be nicer for everyone. so any help would be appreciated Thank you
Enjoy your weekend-we have a cold front moving in with some rain and promises of fall weather-looking forward to it.
