  1. Years and years ago I lived up the block and across the street from a large country store on the outskirts of a college town that sold incredible cheesecakes, Archie comic books for the devout and everything you could possibly need for baking for cheap: all in clear plastic bags sealed with twist ties, weighed and priced. There and then I first noticed different kinds of powdered milk sold next to yeast, wheat berries and rye flour. These were the days that the popularity of Diet for a Small Planet was just beginning to wane and I always associated dehydrated milk with that kind of economical, fringe cooking. Having somehow misplaced my favorite source of simple, basic bread recipes, I opened up Vegetarian Cooking for Everyone (1997; sorry, no time to tend a poolish) and was surprised to see that Deborah Madison recommends the use of dry milk or dried buttermilk in several of her bread recipes. Since there are only a few recipes, it is hard to see a pattern. However, in one case, the recipe is for a whole wheat bread that includes a little gluten flour, but no unbleached white; another is for a rye bread. Does powdered milk complement heartier flours in a way that distinguishes it from fresh milk or buttermilk? Or might it be an established, superior source of protein for vegetarians? Edited to ask: Do I need to make any adjustments in simply replacing some of the water in the recipe with milk--other than, perhaps, increasing the amount of flour slightly?

    Spiced Apple Ring Bread

    I am BEGGING for the recipe. I had it when I was younger. Very moist and used those jarred, bright red, spiced apple rings. I recall the mushed up apple rings were almost like a ribbon through the bread????
  3. Think what you will of Wonder Bread (builds strong bodies, 12 ways....) it certainly is an American cultural icon in not only food traditions but marketing savvy. It was with great sadness I read in the LA Times today (actually their web site) that the Wonder Bread bakeries in So Cal are shutting down in October. The last loaves of Wonder Bread will come out on 10/20, and the bakeries will close totally by 10/29. They will also cease marketing Wonder Bread in Southern California at that time. They've been in the market in this area since the 1940's. Regardless of the cultural/culinary impact, the area will loose about 1300 jobs in 4 area cities. But.......no Wonder Bread on the shelves west of Las Vegas??? That's just wrong. Not that I've bought any of it in about 40 years, but still. It's something that was always there, and that I thought always would be. It's wayyyyyyyyyy too late, and I'm wayyyyyyyyyy too tired to figure out how to do a clever little clicky link (if one of the e-G staff would like to PM me with a cheat sheet, I'd be forever grateful), but here's the URL for the article. You *may* need to register to read it, but it's free. http://www.latimes.com/business/la-fi-wond...dlines-business The good news is the Twinkie/Ding Dong/Ho-Ho production and sales will remain.
  4. Yesterday at Jungle Jim's International Market in Fairfield, OH, I found a closeout on bottles of Hiram Walker's Gingerbread and Pumpkin Spice liqueurs at $5.99 each. Too good to pass up so I bought a bottle of each. Now, what to do with them? Aside from sipping straight, anyone got some recipe suggestions?
  5. I've been getting my bread for my chemistry experiments in the city but I'm out and need some today. If anyone's awake, where can I get thick white bread and 7 grain and baguettes or ciabatto rolls? It doesn't have to be great, but lend itself well to cooking in a panini press.
  6. Hey Everyone In the past weeks, I've sort of rekindled my interest in bread baking. Having a copy of Bread Bakers Apprentice, I made the Pain a l'Ancienne, which came out wonderfully. I'm still working on the one actually, there have been times where the loaves come out picture perfect, the scores open up, the baguette browns evenly and is crisp, they look like they belong in a small cafe in the France. Then there are other times where they come out sort of flat, and the scores are barley visible. Anyways, I think I'm narrowing that one down. But my question here is about the Lean Bread recipe from "Artisan Breads Every Day." Hopefully, I dont get too wordy, but I sort of like this recipe for a few reasons. Firstly, in the recipe from this book for French Bread with (I think) 66% hydration, it came out waaaaay to light and fluffy, like sandwich bread in the shape of a baguette or boule. I like the Pain a l'Ancienne recipe with 80% hydration, but I suppose thats not really meant to be shaped, Reinhart gives instructions to just sort of stretch it out into shape, not really forming it and tightening the gluten on the outside, but it does have a nice crumb, and most of the time, I can get the crust crisp. And it seems in between those, is the Lean Bread with 75% hydration. This also had a nice crumb, not and nice as the 80% hydration dough, but I still thought it was acceptable. So I'm wondering about my baguettes. The pictures are the 75% hydration Lean Bread recipe from Artisan Breads Every Day. I followed the instructions, formed them into baguettes, and let them proof 1 hour covered, and about 45 min uncovered. I read on a website that the times Reinhart gives to proof are guidlines, and its more accurate to test by poking the dough, so I did that. The dough had very little springing back, which I took as a sign of bring proofed. Into the oven they went with steam, and they did spring up, but the scores opened very little, and the bottoms baked quite unevenly. Can someone give me a few tips on what I can do for more even baking, and to have the scores open up? The pictured loaves were baked on a sheet pan at 450f. Am I over proofing them? Hopefully this isnt getting too long, but if I still have your attention...what seems weird to me is that I made a small batch of 80% hydration dough, and one day later I took off a piece and shaped (or tried to) it into a batard, I let it sit for like 10 or 15 min probably after bring shaped, and it went into the hot oven...then it sprang up like crazy and developed a beautiful ridge (see the picture with the mussels) and was perfectly crisp, no blond spots on the bottom, even brown...I'm not kidding, this is the best one that has come out of my oven. This little batard was baked on the back of a cast iron pan that was preheating with the oven. Then 24 hours later with the same dough, the baguettes I baked were ok, just sub par, could barley make out the scores. What accounts for the difference? I cant imagine it was being baked on the cast iron pan vs. a sheet pan. Anywho, I'm just wondering what steps I should take after the 75% hydration dough come out of the fridge after 24 hours of cold fermentation to get a decent looking and even baked baguette. Thanks for reading this and any help provided. :-)
  7. My girlfriend just sent me this recipe.. It looks outrageous.. Honestly Paula Dean is by far the sickest person I have seen... I could see Emeril telling her to calm down a bit and maybe not use so much fat and fried foods.. Has anyone tried this or used Krispy Kremes in a recipe before.. It looks very healthy.. Here is the link.. Krispy Kreme

    Bread baking surprise

    For about a week now (ever since I managed to smash the glass door on our gas Kitchenaid range) I've been using the Weber grill to bake bread. And much to my surprise, the Weber produces a much better (crisper) crust than the Kitchenaid, although it is, you'll understand, far more basic. The Kitchenaid is convection. The Weber is covered, and fueled with natural gas. I use a baking stone, just as I did with the range. I try to keep the heat around 400 degrees, but it's cold outside, so I don't worry if it creeps up a bit. Anyone care to speculate as to why the results are better on an outdoor grill?

    GRAMMAW'S BLACK-SKILLET CORNBREAD Serves 8. This is a dense, hearty bread, it will hold together when dipped in navy bean soup. This is nothing at all like the Marie Callenders type of cornbread which is too sweet and more like cake than bread. This sticks to your ribs. Note, there is NO sugar in this recipe. Ingredients: 2 cups stone-ground cornmeal, white or yellow 1 teaspoon baking soda 1 teaspoon salt 2 tablespoons flour 2 large eggs, lightly beaten 2 cups buttermilk 2 tablespoons canola oil or corn oil (I prefer bacon drippings or melted lard, but I don't have to worry about cholesterol and I know a lot of folks won't use it) Preheat oven to 450. Grease skillet and place in oven to heat. (If using lard, melt it in the skillet) Combine all the dry ingredients and whisk to mix. Add eggs, buttermilk and oil. (If using lard, pour the melted lard into a metal cup to measure, make sure there is some still in the skillet). Mix just enough to be sure all the dry ingredients are moist and there are no dry lumps. Pour into hot, well-greased skillet, return to oven and bake for 30 minutes or until cake tester inserted in center comes out clean. Turn out onto wire rack if not serving immediately or onto a cutting board. Do not cut in the skillet! Cut into 8 wedges. serve hot with fresh butter. This also makes nice griddle cakes or waffles served with butter and maple syrup. For waffles, substitue flour for up to half of the cornmeal and add two tablespoons of sugar. YIELD: Makes 8 wedges SOURCE: Andie’s Grammaw Variations: you can add freshly-cut-off-the-cob sweet corn. You can add some green chiles or Jalapenos if you like spicy. You can add crumbled crisp bacon You can add some finely diced onion lightly toasted in the oven. You can add a bit of grated cheese. I grate it fairly fine and let it air dry for close to an hour so it doesn't melt away to nothing. ( RG1807 )

  12. I thought that there may have been a thread concerning this book but I couldn't find one. Do any of you have it and if so how well do the recipes work? It reads as if it is well researched but I haven't had a chance to make any of the wonderful sounding breads.

    Chapattis (Griddle baked flatbread)

    Chapattis (Griddle baked flatbread) Serves 4 Chaptis are comfort food to most any Indian. No meal can compare to a simple home cooked meal of a vegetable, daal and chapattis. Light, nutritious they are a perfect accompaniment to an Indian meal, chapattis are one of a few things that bind India together. Across India they are made with very slight variations for most any meal. At our home we would call them Phulkas which referred to the fact that they puff up as they are made. Us siblings would enjoy getting our perfect ball, have my mom put some ghee on it and then enjoy piercing a hole on it from which the steam would escape. In winter times this steam would give us a moment of warmth followed by a tasty meal. And now in New York, most friends are most happy eating daal, sabzi and chapattis. Suvir Saran 2 c atta (Indian wheat flour) 1/2 tsp salt 1 c (approx) water for kneading 1. Combine the flour and salt together. Put into a bowl. 2. Knead the dough adding a half cup water into a well you make in the center of the flour. 3. Knead for close to 15 minutes using as much water as needed, The dough should be wet, soft and pliable but not sticky. 4. Heat a skillet over medium heat and place some flour on the surface where you will roll the chapattis. 5. Divide the dough into 12 –16 large marbel sized balls. Roll each in your palm into a smooth circular ball. Flatten these by pressing them. Coat these with flour and roll them out into a circle around 5 inches in diameter. 6. Place chapatti on the griddle and cook for a couple of minutes or until the top side seems opaque. Now flip the chapatti over and cook the other side for a brief minute. 7. With a tong, take the chapatti to the flame and bake on the fire till it puff up. 8. Serve hot with any Indian meal. Keywords: Indian, Intermediate, Bread ( RG142 )

    Chipotle Bacon Cornbread

    Chipotle Bacon Cornbread Serves 6 as Side. This started out as just a scaled down version of Rachel Perlow's Skillet Cornbread With Bacon. I made a few changes along the way and the results are significantly different, hence the new recipe. This is for an 8 inch skillet. You could get away with using a 9 inch, but the bread will be thinner. Note: This is VERY spicy. If you can't handle the heat, seed the peppers. 5 slices cooked bacon, chopped 3 chipotle peppers, chopped – seed for mild 3 T butter 2/3 c yellow cornmeal 2/3 c flour 1/2 tsp tsp baking soda 1-1/4 tsp tsp baking powder 1 tsp salt 1/4 tsp black pepper 1-1/2 T sugar 1 c buttermilk 1 egg Mix peppers and bacon. Set aside. Put butter in 8 inch cast iron skillet and set skillet in oven. Preheat oven to 350. While oven is preheating and butter is melting, mix dry ingredients in a large bowl. In a separate bowl, mix buttermilk and eggs. Gently add buttermilk and egg mixture to dry ingredients. Stir only until moist. Batter will be lumpy. Stir in bacon and chipotle mixture. Remove hot skillet of melted butter from oven. Pour cornbread batter into hot butter. Bake for 20 minutes. Keywords: Side, Hot and Spicy, Bread ( RG451 )

    Irish Soda Bread

    Irish Soda Bread I got this recipe from a friend. After making a few modifications, I like to bake it to eat for breakfast. 2-2.5 cups unbleached flour 1/2 teaspoon salt 1 1/2 teaspoons baking powder 1/2 teaspoon baking soda 1/8 cup sugar (if desired) 1/8 cup butter (ab. 1 oz) 1 egg 1 cup buttermilk Mix the dry ingredients and place them in food processor. Add butter and pulse until the mixture resembles coarse cornmeal. This can also be done by hand, using a knife or a pastry blender. Place the mixture in a bowl. In a separate bowl, mix the egg and buttermilk, then add the liquid mixture to the dry ingredients. Mix and place the dough on a surface dusted with flour. Knead the dough until smooth. Flatten into a disc about 1.5 inches thick, dust with flour, and cut a cross on top with a sharp knife (do not cut all the way through). Bake on a greased sheet for about 40 minutes at 375 F, or until nicely browned. Cool on a rack. This is the recipe I got. And here are my modifications: 1. I shape the dough into 2 loaves: one with caraway seed, and the other one with added Splenda and dry cranberries. 2. For the flour, I use 1/2 cup unbleached flour, 1/2 cup soy flour, and the rest is whole wheat. 3. I don’t usually keep buttermilk at home, but I always have kefir, so I substitute the buttermilk with 3/4 cup kefir + 1/4 cups water (because kefir is thicker).

    Southern Cornbread

    Southern Cornbread Note: Of course, it's hard to argue the Puritanism of this recipe when it has cheese and bacon it in, but the Puritans lived in the North, right? If this is your first experience with Southern cornbread, leave out the bacon bits and cheese, and commune with corn. 2 strips bacon 4 oz white flint cornmeal (see note) 1/2 tsp salt 1/2 tsp baking soda 1/2 tsp cream of tartar 3/4 c buttermilk 1 egg 1 oz cheddar cheese, grated 1. Fry the bacon in a skillet until crisp. Pour 1 tbsp of the fat through a sieve into an 8" cast-iron skillet. You could, of course, cook the bacon in the cast iron, but I find it leaves behind microscopic bacon nodules, which burn. 2. Place the cast-iron skillet in the oven and set the temperature to 425 F. 3. Chop or crumble the bacon into small bits. Combine the dry ingredients in a bowl and whisk the egg and buttermilk in a liquid measuring cup. 4. When your oven claims to be preheated, give it five more minutes with the skillet inside. Pour the liquid ingredients all at once into the dry ingredients and give a few turns with a whisk to combine. Let sit for one minute. 5. Remove the skillet from the oven and slosh the grease around carefully to coat the bottom and sides. Pour the batter into the skillet and return to the oven. 6. Bake 20 minutes. Remove from the oven and invert immediately onto a plate. Bisect the cornbread parallel to the plate like a layer cake. Remove the top layer, add a layer of cheese, and replace the layer of bread. Serve immediately, crisp side up (it doesn't look as nice but stays crispier). Acquiring white flint cornmeal: Morgan's Mills (207-785-4900), of Maine, has five-pound bags for just under $20 with USPS shipping. Keywords: Side, Bread, American, The Daily Gullet ( RG504 )
  18. can someone recommend one please? in english
  19. Hi, I'm not sure if this is the right place to ask, but since it revolves around the bacteria used to make idli I thought I'd ask: Are there any breads which use the bacteria that rise idli? Are there varieties of idli which use flours or other grains instead of rice? Thanks,
  20. I just came across mention of lava bread and cockles while searching something else. It certainly sparked my interest. Here are two links: Welsh Icons - Lava Bread The Secret Life of Cockles Has anyone here ever eaten lava bread and cockles?
  21. After ordering and receiving a brotform, I've decided to buy some cane and make my own. I also am going to make some linen lined baskets as bread rising baskets. Now I found an idea for a homemade cloche made from a terracotta flower pot, tray, eyebolt, nuts, and some washers. If my bread made in it doesn't suit me I can plant some herbs. http://home.att.net/~carlsfriends/carlospi...tisanalLoaf.htm I've built dozens of kilns for ceramics - now to convince myself to build a woodfired oven on my patio.
  22. It was announced in our local newspaper (The Wichita Eagle) this morning that Wichita will be the site for a new bread cook-off next June, sponsored by the Kansas Wheat Commission and King Arthur Flour. link to the story Opening night for contest festivities will be June 15, with the actual baking contest to be June 17. The article goes on to say that the recipes must use yeast, making it a "scratch" baking contest, unlike others sponsored by food companies that require the use of processed products. I'll try to watch for more details and post them here for anyone who may be interested. I live in Wichita, and would love to meet any eGulleters who come to town for this -- or for any reason, actually. If you become a finalist and come to Wichita, I'll be more than happy to help you accommodations, etc. PM me if you have questions or need assistance of any kind. Oh, the important part: there will be eight finalists. Prizes will be "thousands of dollars" and will include an all-expense-paid trip to the King Arthur Company baking school in Vermont. The KWC is looking for additional sponsors, so I wouldn't be surprised if additional prices become available. Edited to add: Rules are now available here. Supposedly, more details will be/are available on the King Arthur Flour website.
  23. Interior: Soft, rolled like a baguette, slightly sweet bread....it was white inside so i don't think it had eggs....maybe milk , maybe potatoes to enrichened Exterior: No crust what so ever. I was thinking portuguese bread but not sure..... Thanks

    pay rate for bread baker

    I'm getting ready to open a retail bakery and I've realized I can't quite make the baguette of my dreams. My bakery will specialize in desserts and breakfast pastries, but we will also offer pre-made sandwiches and salads. Breads are not going to be our mainstay, but we'd like to at least produce them ourselves. I can probably get the hang of it sooner or later, I'd just feel more comfortable with somebody with a little more experience. Ideally, I would like to hire someone proficient in making artisan breads, croissants, and brioche. My question is how much would they expect to earn? Also, since we will be very small at first, this person will also likely help with various prep items and such, just to flesh out their hours. I'm located in Seattle, WA. If you'd like to be confidential about your answer, please feel free to PM me and I will keep your answer in strict confidence for my reference only. Thanks.

    1981 Cakebread Cellars

    For my 21st birthday i just got a bottle of 1981 Cakebread Cellars Cabernet Sauvignon. I know nothing about wine but i do know that this is quite valuable but if anyone would approximately what a bottle of this would be worth i may be able to treat it with proper care. I could also use advice as to what to drink such a wine with. Im sorry im such a novice...i like good food plenty but this is my first experience with fine wine. Thanks!
