Am I going crazy?

pamilyn's picture

OK, I could SWEAR I owned The Bread Bakers Apprentice...really, really would bet my life on it. I can't find it anywhere!! Argh. Did I just think I bought it because I have looked at it so much in the bookstore and we used it in the bread baking class, and I wanted it so bad? I have looked everywhere a cookbook would be AND it's a big book. Has this ever happened to anyone else out there? Please say yes.....soooo do I buy the book or look some more THINKING I own this thing.....Pamilyn

The surest way to find it is to buy another! ;-) BTDT.

So you have done that? But did you think you owned it when you never bought it? Pamilyn

me too - deliberately. I knew I'd find my old one as you said. So I ordered it, and lo and behold - the old one shows up! As I planned, I gave the new one as a gift. Sort of hedging my bets, as it were. ;-)


I guess I'll have to do that with BBA - it's so deprssing. Know anyone who wants a copy and doesn't have one - WAIT - maybe Pamilyn? ;-0

I've done that with a pair of glasses. couldn't find them and couldn't find them. I went to Denver (where I had gotten them), got an exact replica pair, came home, walked IN the house from the airport and walked straight to the old pair.

Don't worry about it. Just enjoy the ride. I'm 54, and still enjoying it (which is the important thing to do. :-)

ROFL here. Amy, you are too much. Don't you know we start repeating ourselves when we get (ahem) more mature?

If I had a dollar for every cookbook I've bought twice, I could retire.  Wait, I am retired.  Oh well, you get the idea.

this is eerie. I haven't been able to find that very same cookbook for about a week, either. I'm not kidding, and I want to make that cornbread.


Perhaps they went off together somewhere? ;-)

                                Corn Bread


Recipe By     :Peter Reinhart
Serving Size  : 0     Preparation Time :0:00
Categories    : Breads


  Amount  Measure       Ingredient -- Preparation Method
--------  ------------  --------------------------------
  1                cup  coarse cornmeal (also packaged as polenta) -- (6 oz)
  2               cups  buttermilk -- (16 oz)
  8                 oz  bacon -- (10 slices)
  1 3/4           cups  unbleached AP flour -- (8 oz)
  1 1/2           TBSP  baking powder -- (.75 oz)
     1/4           TSP  baking soda -- (.05 oz)
  1                TSP  salt -- (.25 oz)
     1/4           cup  granulated sugar -- (2oz)
     1/4           cup  firmly packed brown sugar -- (2 oz)
  3              large  eggs -- (5 oz)
  2               TBSP  honey -- (1.5 oz)
  2               TBSP  unsalted butter -- (1 oz) melted
  2 1/2           cups  fresh or frozen corn kernels -- (16 oz)
  2               TBSP  bacon fat or veg oil -- (1 oz)


Day 1 : the night before making the cornbread soak the cornmeal in buttermilk. Cover and leave at room temperature overnight.


Day 2: Brown the bacon Crisp in a 375 degree oven, remove to paper towels to cool, crumble, reserve bacon fat ( I cut it up and did it in a fry pan)


Lower oven temp to 350


Sift together, flour, baking powder, baking soda, and salt in a mixing bowl


Stir in granulated sugar and brown sugar
In another bowl lightly beat eggs


Dissolve honey in the melted butter then stir into the eggs


Add this to the soaked cornmeal mixture


Add the wet ingredients to the flour mixture


Stir or whisk until evenly distributed and batter is blended and smooth


Should be the consistency of thick pancake batter


Stir in corn kernels


Place 2 tbsp rendered bacon fat or veg oil in
10 inch round cake pan OR 9 x 13 pan OR 12 inch square pan OR a cast iron skillet Or muffin tins (course bake less time)


place pan in the oven for 5 to 7 minutes til it gets very hot


remove the pan, tilt to make sure the pan is greased well


Pour the batter in the hot pan spread from the middle out to make an even texture
sprinkle with crumbled bacon, gently press into batter


Bake for about 30 minutes or until cornbread is firm and springy (baking time will depend on the size of the pan) and a toothpick inserted in the middle comes out clean. the top will be medium golden brown. The internal temp at the center will be at least 185 degrees.


Allow to cool in the pan for at least 15 minutes before cutting into squares or wedges
serve warm ( its just as good cold)
