    Hello all!! When I was growing up, I remember my mom having the Herman stuff in the fridge. I was wondering if anyone here had any and if you have any different recipes than the standard cake or cookies?

    I'm hoping there is someone close by that I can get a start from, too? Been having a craving for it for some reason - even though I couldn't tell you what it tastes like since it's been well over 30 years since I have had any.

    If there is anyone in Riverside County or San Diego County, please contact me :)

    I have sourdough starter going now - I started out with Herman and will have to dig out my Herman recipes for you. I have a couple more than just the bread one.

    My favorite sourdough recipe works well with Herman, it just turns out sweeter.

    Bacon Cheddar Sourdough Muffins makes 1 dozen
    3 slices of bacon - diced and fried to light brown
    1/2 cup shredded cheddar cheese
    Stir together with 1 teaspoon of flour to coat.

    1 3/4 cup flour
    1/4 cup sugar
    2 1/2 teaspoon baking powder
    1/4 teaspoon salt
    Mix dry ingredients together

    1 egg
    1/2 cup milk
    1/2 cup starter (Herman)
    1/2 cup oil
    Combine wet ingred. - Stir into dry - Add bacon and cheese

    Bake 350 degrees for 20 min. Best while still warm.
    Enjoy! [​IMG]
