Anyone got any extra special recipes? For the oven not a stinking bread maker.
it always seems to be too desne but it's really good for soups.
Look up he stuffed bread by Jamie Oliver, that's yummy, it's ahuge bread ring filled with chorizo and mozerealla nd whatever you like. It's like an inside out sandwich. No, no it isn't. It's like a bread pie. I dunno. It's good for picnics though.
I can bake normal loaves and beer bread and stuff but I wanted to go the extra yard, I could just bung loads of stuff in it I suppose... I wanted to make sourdough but that seems a bit of a pain in the arse.
Date and walnut
Honey and sunflower
Both lovely breakfast breads.
Did you watch that programme on 4 about the man trying to make the best bread? He came second in the end I think with a rye or similar. It looked lovely.
the one on BBC4 about the history of bread...
I suspect you could kill a man with one of those
I'll just make something massive.
that's not cost effective. I can make you a nice one with motor oil.
am always planning to get a starter going and make sourdough bread a la river cottage...do you do this?
I really love sourdough though so may do it in the future.
I'd go with Delia then, never fails...http://www.deliaonline.com/recipes/type-of-dish/bread
i don't use a breadmaker though.
as an aside DO YOU ACTUALLY RUN A BAKERY BALONZ?
I've heard they're beautiful people.
on the Guardian website has some great breads. I made the rye one that uses coffee and caraway seeds and black pepper, it was really good in a curious way, not an 'every day' bread though. The River Cottage bread book is great as well.
My standard loaf is 300g white flour, 200g wholemeal, 300g water, 5g yeast, 5g salt. Knead, let it double in size, shape into whatever shape you want it, let it rise for about 30-40 minutes. Oven on full whack (220). Get a dish full of boiling water in the oven as well so that it helps to steam the bread and give it a good crust, coat the loaf in rye flour, give it a couple of slashes to help the crust expand, and bake it for about 35 minutes (turn the heat down to 200 after 10 minutes, then down a bit more at about 20 minutes).
Bloody love making bread.
and add pumpkin and sunflower kernels.
