Doughnut Shoppe Hangover

Is it morning or afternoon? I didn't know as I stumbled down the hall with my doughnut shoppe hangover. Thanks to everyone who played yesterday. I enjoyed reading the comments.

I'm writing to you now from our kitchen table with coffee perking for background music and Tim off to my far left, working at his desk on his zine printing press.

Beside me are almond milk and eggs getting to room temperature so I can make another box of waffle sticks for the freezer.

I usually make spelt waffle sticks but this time I'm going to give hard white spring wheat a go. I use spring wheat for cookies and I love it.

Coffee is done singing. Time for a nice quiet cuppa before I dive into waffle stick making madness.

Muhahaha.

  1. Adore what you call biscuits and we call scones, think that is the main thing I miss when not in your country, must learn how to make them successfully!

    1. Hi Carole - Sometimes people interchange the words, depending on where they live. For me when I make scones I call them scones.

      Biscuits though, aren't hard to learn, and I love them when they are buttery. Ohhh, good eats.

  3. I wish you could make me a waffle stick. Have no idea what they taste, but I'm in no doubt they taste good.

    1. I'd prepare for you my vegan waffle sticks. That would be fun to sit and eat with you.

  4. Never even heard of waffle sticks. Scones and biscuits are not quite the same thing by the way.

    1. I didn't say that they were, Jo. Though I do find some like to interchange the two.

      Waffle sticks are yummy. They are waffles in the shape of sticks. There's a picture of them somewhere on my side bar, and I'm sure to have pictures soon up of the new batch.

      Do you eat waffles?

  6. Waffle sticks sound yummy, and spring wheat is a diet essential, right? Happy baking, Happy Whisk.

    1. Hi Robyn. I'm a test batch baker that loves to play with spring and winter wheat, wholemeal spelt, rice flours, homemade almond flours, garbanzo bean flour, flax (homemade only), and all that good stuff.

      It's all so much fun and each bakes differently with various flavours and textures.

      Do you ever play with different flours? If not, it's great fun and I hope you give it a go.

  11. Do you have a special waffle stick maker ? I remember when you posted this before.
    I was watching Trisha's Southern Kitchen and she just made Raisin Bread in a can.
    She just said save your cans. They looked like what my Mum made but I still can't figure out what size can she used.
    I will go check out her site.
    hahahahaha Doughnut Hangover !

    cheers, parsnip

    1. Waffle iron, yes. Love it. So fun. There's a few different ones on the market. Even one that makes big round waffles and/or wavy sticks. It's pretty neat. I am thinking about getting that one too.

      Why not use any size can you want? As long as your dough has the room that it needs.

    2. I just want a safe can. You fill it up 2/3 full and then you get that little mushroom top !

    3. Safe is the most important.
