A Nice Tidbit of Information

Remember how I'm always telling you to coat fruit and such in flour when you put them in breads and such? Well, I've sort of always wondered why the coating is necessary, and I recently found out why. It's because it helps keep the fruit from sinking to the bottom of the pan. Instead, the flour helps it to stick to the batter or dough around it. I feel like a fool for never figuring that out. But now I know!

I thought it was to keep the fruit warm in cold weather.

Actually, I didn't even know you were supposed to coat fruit; shows you what kind of fool I am, at least in terms of baking.

You shouldn't feel like a fool for not figuring out something so rather esoteric. Everyone has to learn something sometime or other. Now, if you hadn't figured out that the earth goes around the sun, you'd be in a class with Sherlock Holmes.
