Homemade Pita Pocket Bread

Now this is definitely a recipe to try!

Homemade Pita Pocket Bread | Tammy’s Recipes.

I just made these the other day. I think this may be my 2nd or 3rd time and they are wonderful.  I use the bread machine dough version and each time they have come out great.

The first time I made them, my daughter and I were amazed that there actually was a pocket!  No need to ever buy pita bread again.

I’m thinking of maybe trying to add some garlic or parmesan cheese just to mix it up next time.

Something I would like to warn everyone about…  The first time I made these, I used a cooling (baking) rack that I had placed on a cookie sheet.  Not thinking much of it, I baked my pita.  After a while I started to notice a strange smell.  Well after taking out my 3rd set, I realized my rack had little rubber feet at the bottom.  Didn’t even notice they were there before!  Well that baking sheet and rack were goners!  Not that anyone would do that except of course, ME!  So I ended up having to make a trip to Sur la table for a new ones.  Luckily for me they were having a sale!

I have recently read that you could also use a pizza stone to bake these on which I think I might try next time too.


Weekly Recipe Goal – English Muffins

So I haven’t been to good at my goals for trying a recipe a week or for posting on this blog, but a couple of weeks ago I did make my attempt at English Muffins.

I found the recipe from Utah Deal Diva.  She actually made wheat and I just used regular flour.

They did come out quite tasty with all the nook & crannies, but didn’t seem to rise as much as I thought they would or possibly I rolled them to thin?  I know that I had to add quite a bit more flour since my dough was really quite runny and not at all workable. I should have probably added the extra flour before letting my dough rise, but I didn’t really think about it until after I punched it down and saw that it was still way to moist to do anything with.

In the end though, they did come out quite tasty and I will definitely try making them again to see how if I can improve the technique.
