Laura reminded me that we had not mentioned our latest video here in the Logbook. In case you missed it, we uploaded a new Real Time Update earlier in the week. Here is the link: https://youtu.be/apJJbUNWZuQ
In other news: I made a batch of cornbread.
Henry David Thoreau was a connosieur of cornbread and mentioned that he preferred his made with rye flour. I thought I would try it. An inspired experiment that turned out GREAT!
Henry David's Cornbread
1 cup milk
1/4 cup unsalted butter, melted
1 large egg
1 + 1/4 cups fine ground cornmeal
1 cup rye flour
1/4 cup maple syrup*
1 tbsp baking powder
1/2 tsp salt
Preheat oven to 400f
Grease bottom and sides of baking pan
Beat milk, butter and egg in large bowl with hand beater or whisk, then stir in the maple syrup.
Mix dry ingredients thoroughly together then stir into the liquid all together and mix well.
Pour and spoon the dough/thick batter into the baking pan and spread evenly.
Bake 20 to 25 minutes until golden brown or until a toothpick stuck in the middle comes out clean.
It was all I could do not to eat it all before Laura got home.
