Bread MixesEnglish Muffin Bread Mix
is loaded with raisins and is made with premium cinnamon.

Here's another great English muffin bread with the trademark texture, moist crumb, and rich taste of English muffins all in the convenience of a loaf. You will enjoy the crunch and open crumb of English muffin bread--loaded with cinnamon and plump raisins.

If you make this bread in your bread machine, water temperature is critical. Please use a thermometer to measure water at exactly 80 degrees. A ten degree difference in water temperature can double the growth rate of the yeast. These bread mixes are satisfaction guaranteed when you use a thermometer.

One of the readers asked about the potato starch. One brand in our area is Bob's Red Mill. You can find it in the speciality section of flours, meals, etc in almost any high end grocery like Central Market, Sprouts, Whole Foods, or Market Street. It is probably a 1 1/2 lb bag. I buy it in 50 lb bags through my food vendor Ben E Keith. Just 2 or 3 Tablespoons makes a huge difference in texture. Good luck!

Lurine requested information on where to purchase potato starch in the 2/16 newsletter. . It can often be found in major supermarkets and will be in the baking isle near corn starch and flour. Amazon also sells it. There are other on line sellers, but I have not used them, so don't feel comfortable listing them. I have had great experiences with Amazon.

A tip to remember to make Hardboiled Eggs easier to peel.

As soon as you have finished boiling them for the correct time, immediately cool them down by running cold water over them and then add ice cubes and let them soak for a few minutes until they are cold. Doing this will help keep the membrane from sticking the shell to the whites.
