Muffins or scones

I made these anyway, but anyone want to play along?

Banana-wheat germ muffins:


and banana-date scones both from Veganomicon.


Everything seems to have turned out well. I'll have to give a full report later in the week since the soup is for lunches and the scones and muffins are for breakfasts. I can tell you I think the scone batter was runnier than it should have been and the scones turned out more muffin-y than scone-y IMO, but I also know there are multiple definitions of what a scone should be like. My favorite is more biscuit-y.

Dilly Bread

Sorry, I said I was going to post the recipe for the Dill-y Bread - here it is finally...

This is really good - and I let the bread machine do the kneading and first rising - then I put it into a small loaf pan for the final rise and baking...

3/4 cup warm soymilk
2 cups bread flour
1 1/2 Tablespoons turbinado sugar
1 teaspoon salt
2 teaspoons dill weed
1 Tablespoon vegan margarine
1 1/2 teaspoons dry yeast
1 Tablespoon vital wheat gluten

Put all ingredients into your bread machine in the order called for. Select the dough setting - or if you want the bread machine to bake it just use whatever setting you normally use for a basic bread.

This bread is perfect for springtime sandwiches of Tofutti cream cheese and cucumber...

so good...
