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.

Candied Popcorn Recipe

6 cups popped corn
2/3 cup sugar
1/2 cup water
2-1/2 tablespoons white corn syrup
1/8 teaspoon salt
1/3 teaspoon vinegar
Combine last five ingredients and stir until the sugar is dissolved. Bring to a boil and cover. Cook covered for about 3 minutes (the steam from the cooking will wash down the sides of the pan). Remove cover and without stirring bring to the hard crack stage (290{d}). Be sure the fire is not too hot. Add coloring (if more than one color is desired, divide the sugar syrup and color as desired). Use plenty of coloring dye. Pour the syrup over the popped corn, stir with a wooden spoon until well coated. When it is cool enough to handle and still somewhat sticky, mold with the hands which have been lightly buttered. This can be forced into molds. Be sure you ram the corn tightly into the nooks and crannies of the mold.

How to Make Cheddar Cheese Popcorn

1/2 cup cheddar cheese powder

Pop the corn. Stir in the powdered cheese, Stir in the butter and then the salt. You can adjust both the amount of cheese and the amount of salt to taste.

Variations of Cheesy Popcorn

Cheddar and Bacon Popcorn.
In our search, we found recipes for cheese and bacon popcorn. We fried bacon and chopped it into little pieces and tossed it with the cheesy buttered popcorn. Most of it settled to the bottom. We weren’t happy.

Parmesan Popcorn.
Kelli Tracy who works in our test kitchen did this at home. She grated parmesan over the fresh popcorn. She reported that had a great flavor but that much of the cheese settled to the bottom of the bowl.

Fresh Cheddar Popcorn.
We grated mild cheddar cheese before we popped the corn and sprinkled the cheddar over the corn while it was still hot. It didn’t melt at all and didn’t disperse. It didn’t work.

Dont use plain salt! Use flavorful salt.
We added chipotle sea salt to the basic cheddar cheese recipe. It made the cheese savory and we liked that but it didn’t deliver an appreciable amount of heat. It was as if the occasional salt crystal got lost, buried in the popcorn, and the salt came through only at the end. It was still good but no heat.

Cheddar and Roasted Garlic Salt Popcorn. We added roasted garlic salt to the cheddar popcorn. It was good and shifted the cheddar flavor but it did not deliver a strong garlic flavor. I suppose that you could add a bit of garlic powder if you wanted a more garlic flavor.

Faye requested alternative to salt in the 2/24 newsletter. Nel VA shared this recipe in 1/13. Good Luck in altering your diet to salt fee. The hardest part is finding no or low salt items at the grocery store. Mixes, soups, cereals lunch meats, crackers, snack foods and almost everything you pick up is loaded with salt.
