Show Notes for this Episode:

  • Bake-a-long chapter begins at 1:41
    --Muddy's cake mix is available online or in our walk-in "bake sale"  (open Thu-Sat noon-5pm)
    --Thistle & Bee honey is the BEST honey. Get you some here.   And learn more about them here.
    --Highly recommend pairing this bake with our new house blend from Dr. Beans Coffee!
    --No kitchen is complete without a bench scraper. I like to use one that doubles as a ruler- super handy for when a recipe calls for pastry 1/2" thick, etc.
