No, dear diary: I am not making plum duff. I am making a pune, or play on words. "Duff" is indeed the same word as "dough", and "plum" is an old Englishism for top-notch, first-rate, finest kind.

Actually what I'm doing is using my new-to-me vintage KitchenAid for the first time, to make a batch of sesame seed buns for the yogi tonight. It's a recipe I'm very familiar with as a hand-kneaded dough; I wasn't at all sure at first whether what came out of the mixer would be up to snuff. But I added a little more buttermilk, left it grinding away, and went back to look when the note changed - and lo! A perfect-looking dough!

We'll see how it comes up, how it bakes, how it tastes. So far, though, I'm pleased (and interested: is the need for a little more liquid common, I wonder, with machine-mixed doughs? And if so, why?).

Now I must hie me to Lucky's, to find out what else is for dinner. Yogi shall not live by buns alone. Tho' they will happily leap on the chance to make many a mighty pune* about my buns and the quality thereof. Hey-ho.
