interesting, AnnaN.  surely the TMX does not bake the loaf ?

 

soo out of curiosity , what does the TMX 'add' to the loaf ?

 

Unfortunately, BB&B does not carry the TMX   ( 20 % off, please )

 

or maybe Fortunately,   :huh:

No, the TMX does not bake the bread but it does spin the dough at shearing forces! The recipe is so counter intuitive that even I, who have made it a number of times, am still astonished (enjoying a slice topped with caramelized onion cheddar as we "speak"). My TMX is the older model 21 but I don't think the 31 makes much of a difference. You won't find coupons but mine was a gift and very, very occasionally an older model will show up on eBay but usually in Europe where they are hugely popular. The Australians are also big TMX users.

I might give this a try in the Cuisinart 11 prep +

 

it has an effective metal dough blade, 

 

odd the TMX is not sold S. of the Border.

Try it. You can only lose a bit of flour and yeast (and perhaps a Cuisinart). The blades, speed, and container are very different. Although the TMX is not sold south of the 49th, there are ways (PM me if you are serious!).

Bad cut?

 

Pretty minor this time, thank you for asking.  Although I wore a latex glove over the Band-Aid next day at work.

 

Speaking of gloves, I have cut resistant ones, but who would think to wear a cut resistant glove for slicing bread?

Jo,

Never found cut-resistant gloves did anything for me except give me a false sense of security and encourage me to do things I would never dream of doing with bare hands!

This is pane di Genzano from All You Knead is Bread. This is a lovely bread baked in a pie plate. However, a little research leads me to believe it is far from the real McCoy.

Because it is baked in the pan in which it rises, it occurs to me that it would work very well on the Big Green Egg.

But since I don't have a Big Green Egg but I do have a big stainless steel Breville, for rotuts I baked it in there. Initially I had a pizza stone in the oven. I suspect it interferes with the operation of the Breville Smart oven. After five minutes I removed the pizza stone, burning myself only one or two times. Much as I love my oven I do not think these small toaster ovens are the appropriate tool for baking bread. Like the learned Samuel Johnson said in reference to another matter, "It's not done well; but you are surprised to find it done at all." Next time it will go in the big oven.

I finally found a place in Victoria that carries Caputo 00 Chef's Flour.

Made a 500g batch of pizza dough and left it in the fridge overnight.   Took it out in the morning and shaped

two balls.  Back in the fridge for the day.

Ann_T,

Your pizza crust looks amazing. I have some of that flour as it is fairly easy to find here. Can you share your recipe for the crust?

Anna,  I made a 500g batch, with 65% hydration (325g water) 2 g yeast and 12 g salt.   Mixed up by hand, using the pinch and fold method and left it overnight in the fridge. The dough is really soft.  I might try a 62% hydration next time. And maybe see what it is like with the addition of a little olive oil.

Thanks very much, Ann. Hope to get around to pizza very soon.

Not sure if this belongs in the bread topic or in the daily sweets topic! Anyway two loaves of raisin bread from a Nick Malgieri recipe. No cinnamon to my daughter's dismay. Did not want to make a cinnamon swirl raisin bread. This is just an old-fashioned raisin bread.

Anna, Beautiful loaves.  My husband would love your raisin bread.  Unfortunately for him, I don't do raisins.

I baked a batch of my regular baguette dough yesterday, half baguettes and half small rounds.  

Sourdough%20Rye%20August%2026th%2C%20201

 

And I fed my sourdough starters early in the day, and made a biga that went into a batch of sourdough rye.

A rather mishapen and scarred loaf of sour cream sandwich bread. I think I have offended the kitchen gods. Yesterday my Keurig coffee maker decided to quit but after much futzing around and a little vinegar I was able to revive it. Today I watched my elephant ear cookies sit in the oven and slowly dehydrate. I had the temperature set for 375°F. But my oven thermometer was reading 290°F. I had a loaf of bread waiting in the wings.

Out of desperation I decided to put the bread in the Breville where it immediately got its top scorched. I futzed around with the oven trying convection, broil, bake... Suddenly it came back to life. This leaves me feeling very nervous about both my oven and my coffee maker. How does one propitiate the kitchen gods?

Ann – I love that pizza dough.  I really think there is nothing better than good crust on a pizza.  I do believe that I could eat yours with just a little olive oil and salt.  The ultimate test, I think!

 

Anna – lovely raisin loaves!  They would make excellent toast, I’m sure.

 

I did the CI American Sandwich bread for brisket sandwiches last night.  It is so nice to have a recipe that never fails.  I don’t bake yeast breads very often and when I do it can be a bit chancy.  But never with this recipe.  It always turns out like this:

Back to lunchboxes tomorrow for school and work in this little corner of the world. Sandwich bread seemed appropriate.

Anna, I really do need to make one of your sandwich loaves.

 

Today's bread.

 

Sourdough%20September%204th%2C%202014%20

 

Started yesterday. Made a Biga early morning with my rye sourdough starter. Mixed up a batch of dough last night using 1000g white, 100 g rye, 500 g biga (100% hydration), 680g water, 3g yeast, 26 g salt. . After first rise, dough was stretched and folded and put in the fridge overnight. Pulled out this morning around 5:30 AM. Four loaves out of the oven before noon.
The Rye flour used to feed sourdough starter and added to the bread was milled Saturday at Scoops Natural Foods.

Bit of a bread disaster today. I was anxious to try out the new 12 inch Bread pan that I was given very recently and have posted about elsewhere. I used a recipe that always seems to overfill my normal 9 x 5 bread pan. I am fairly certain it was properly proofed both for the bulk fermentation and for the final rise. I suspect the issue might be an oven that was somewhat too hot. But ugly bread like ugly chocolates still gets eaten!

No knead bread attempt #3

Didn't think while handling it, so the shape didn't turn out great once again, but you can call it rustic I guess.

 

I tried to take the caramelisation even further this time. The crust and crumb tasted pretty much the same as last time. It's so satisfying to bite into crispy, warm crust.

      Having no local Arabic bakery, I have long hoped to learn to make good khoubz at home. Every time I try, however, my bread is too stiff and tough. I have been successfully making other breads using The Bread Baker's Apprentice, and now wonder if my bread woule benefit from an overnight ferment in the refrigerator.

      San Diego has a small number of artisanal bread bakeries. Bread & Cie has been my favorite for years, and their breads are now available in many supermarkets, which is very convenient. But it's nice to have some variety. So I was excited to spot a new bakery this weekend in Linda Vista. It's called Pacific Time and it is also a sandwich place with a small market with things like small-batch preserves, local beers, a cheese counter, charcuterie platters, and wine. It's located within a recently renovated strip mall that also hosts Brew Mart & Ballast Point.
       
      The bread I bought was a French-type rustic boule, dark, a bit reminiscent of Poilane but less dense. The crust could have been a little more crispy (it felt like the bread had sat around a little bit and softened in the paper bag), but the flavor was wonderful.

      The team over at Modernist Cuisine announced today that their next project will be an in-depth exploration of bread. I personally am very excited about this, I had been hoping their next project would be in the baking and pastry realm. Additionally, Francisco Migoya will be head chef and Peter Reinhart will assignments editor for this project which is expected to be a multi-volume affair.
