Parbaked bread or frozen and shaped bread dough anyone?

Anyone interested in getting par baked bread (take from freezer, throw in oven to finish baking) or bread dough that’s been shaped and frozen, but still needs to rise? In the later case, you’d need to get the same pans as i use because the bread won’t hold its shape once it thaws and rises. Let me know. I’m not baking until late April, but have been thinking about putting this on my bucket list.  So let me know! And also, order of preference of types of bread i should experiment with first. Thanks!

Dairy free vanilla cupcakes (the frosting isn’t DF!)

NOW AVAILABLE (!), DF vanilla cake/cupcakes! I’m sending these puppies out to my testers, but i think this version is as good or better than my dairy-full version. So light and tender! Now, if i could only come up with a substitute for butter in my buttercream. . . . (the buttercream on these cupcakes is NOT dairy free, just fyi).

Challah

GF challah

GF challah

 

Please let me know by THIS Saturday if you would like to order challah for next week. I need to order the challah molds. (GF dough is too wet to braid without a mold to keep the shape during the initial minutes of baking, and I only bought one to experiment with.) Otherwise, it will be available some time after Passover.
