  1. The Bread Topic (2016-)

    Good days baking. French lean baked in a Pullman and shokupan made as a tear and share. Shokupan was amazing eaten hot from the oven!
  2. I made it. Dough was difficult to handle so I used 500g tins. Didn't have pearl sugar so dried some simple syrup in the oven and crushed as a substitute.
  3. Anyone going to try the Portuguese Sweet Bread? http://modernistcuisine.com/recipes/portuguese-sweet-bread/
  4. Shokupan. Little bit of work to make the gelatinised rice beforehand as I had to grind the rice first but great rise, nice light texture. Made fab french toast for breakfast. Pretty nice toasted with butter or in a sandwich with cheese and ham. Will make some burger buns next.time.
  5. Had a go at the Ciabatta. Didn't have malt syrup so used honey instead. The dough was so wet it had to be poured into the tin (no way it would have worked on a sheet). Overnight proove in the garage and baked this morning. Not as airy as Ciabatta I've bought but tasted amazing toasted with butter and fois gras for lunch.
  6. 2nd attempt at Babka but with Nutella this time. Much better!
  7. Panasonic Steam Oven

    Oregano, cheddar and paprika bread. 20 mins steam at 220, 15 mins no steam at 200. Looks spot on.
  8. Inspired from last weekends Babka, I've made a cinnamon filling and going to make something akin to cinnamon rolls.

    Foil on top sounds like an idea, although I weary of too much faffing. Maybe at the venting stage. Maybe drop the temps and bake a bit longer too. Still, trial and improvement is the way.

    Looking a little bit better, although I suspect the breads are a bit tall for the oven and getting too close to the top heating element. Temps are out a bit too - measured 245c with a temp set at 220c.

    Clearly underbaked but the outside is quite good. The machine works just need to do with tune process with it. As an aside, using this thing, I've microwaved left over curry and baked up some frozen flat bread for dinner

    Not great
  13. Panasonic Steam Oven

    Ok...I need to calibrate the oven. 220c, 20 mins steam and 5 mins (wanted 10 mins but the top was looking a bit too dark). Another attempt tomorrow... Oh and internal temp was 40ish measured with thermapen.

    Right, first test will be MB lean french bread. Poolish is started so we'll see how we go tomorrow. Will probably bake a single 1kg loaf in my perforated tin and see what happens.
