Depends. If there is oil in the dough then I will use that oil to grease the pans. If the dough calls for butter as this one did, then I use butter. If there is no fat in the dough or if I think the dough will be particularly prone to sticking then I use Trader Joe's olive oil spray.

Sometimes rolls make more sense then loaves for singletons. But I did not want a dozen so I chose a recipe and successfully halved it. It needed more than the usual attention while being kneaded in the Bosch i.e., more scraping down of the bowl and detaching dough from hook but otherwise it was a walk in the park.

Anna, in this case, what is a Bosch?

It is a small mixer click. Mine was a gift and came with all the accessories. I love it. My KA collects dust in the closet.

Ah just a boule or round loaf? 

 

I thought you referred to the country style of wild fermentation.

It is very hard to become enthusiastic about gluten-free bread recipes when a loaf like this is singing.

On my second loaf from my new oven. So far so good. Potato bread and then a wheat loaf.

 

I'd made potato bread before but this was extra special this time. The dough was over-hydrated but what a happy accident: the toasted slices with a bit of cheese on top were like eating pierogies! Simply amazing. Two slices for breakfast would hold me to lunch.

Today I made some fruit buns based on paulpeggs easy focaccia dough outlined in post# 244 on Feb. 26. I increased the water a bit and added about 280 grams of raisins and dried cranberries. These are very, very good toasted with butter dripping into the nooks and crannies.

Very cool idea. I think you could add just about anything to this dough. Some savory items like strips of proscuitto or small cubes of sausage or other cooked meats would work also. You could stick a small grape tomato in the middle for a flavor surprise.

 

Best regards,

Ann, the pans I use were these. I like them very much. They make hamburger size buns.

Paul, I had not thought of savoury flavourings. As I am sitting here thinking about that, slivered sun dried tomatoes and cooked diced pancetta comes to mind.

At what hour do you bake and sell if you stay up after midnight?

 

Even though I used ice water my current batch of dough was 84 deg F (29 deg C) after mixing.  I aim for 75-76 deg F.  Tonight's baguette is somewhat over proofed and not worth a picture.  Waiting for it to cool so I can eat.

They cool down over night, and I deliver in the morning.

I don't weigh or take temps of anything... [emoji16][emoji16][emoji16]. I just do it and it comes out the same every time. I really have no clue about this over proof under proof stuff.

      So I tried my hand at croissants for the first time in about 5 years. I used the recipe from the Bouchon Bakery cookbook. Despite the fact that I really struggled rolling them out (the dough was very stiff and resisted rolling), tore the dough layer in small patches quite a bit on the last turn, and probably took too long letting the butter get too warm, I got nice layers on the outside and on the interior and they did shatter nicely on the outside. I did not get that beautiful open honeycomb interior, however. 
       
      I’d love any tips or feedback or advice anyone could offer to do better next time—thanks!

      So, what is everyone doing for the pastry & baking side of Easter?
       
      I'm working on the following chocolates: fruit & nut eggs, hollow bunnies, Jelly Belly filled bunnies, coconut bunnies, dragons (filled with rice krispies & chocolate), peanut butter hedgehogs, and malted milk hens. Hoping to finish my dark chocolate production today and get started on all my milk chocolate items.
       
      My father-in-law will be baking the traditional family Easter bread a day or two before Easter. Its an enriched bread and he makes two versions -- one with raisins and one without (I prefer the one with raisins).
       

       
      And I was lucky enough to spot this couple in the sale moulds stock at last year's eGullet chocolate & confections workshop in Niagara-on-the-Lake, Ontario. These love bunnies help so very much with Easter chocolate production!  ;-)

      I'm a pastry cook working in NYC. We have a seasonal bread that we do with chickpeas, garlic (fresh and confit) and pecorino. We drain and rinse the chickpeas and it was working for a while but it hasn't been consistent. Bread turns out flat. What is it in chickpeas that kills the yeast and how can we counteract the effect? I'm taking a long shot by posting but wanted to further educate myself and fellow team members. Thanks so much.

      Alright so as of a few months ago, I decided to take an impromptu trip to Europe--mostly unplanned but with several priorities set in mind: find the best food and locate the most game-changing ice cream spots on the grounds of each city I sought out for. One of the greatest, most architecturally unique and divine cities I have visited thus far has gotta be Vienna, Austria. But what in the heck is there to eat over there?! (you might ask). 'Cause I sure as hell didn't know. So, I desperately reached out to a local Viennese friend of mine, who knows and understands my avid passion for all things edible, and she immediately shot back some must-have food dishes. Doing a bit of research beforehand, I knew I had to try the classic "Kasekreiner". Please forgive my German if I spelled that wrong. But no matter how you say it- say it with passion, because passion is just about all I felt when I ate it. Translated: it basically means cheese sausage. Honestly, what is there not to love about those two words. Even if that's not necessarily your go-to, do me a favor and give it a shot. Trust me, you won't regret it. A classic Austrian pork sausage with pockets of melty cheese, stuffed into a crisp French Baguette. No ketchup necessary (...and as an American, that's saying a lot). YUM. Best spot to try out this one-of-a-kind treat?! Bitzinger bei der Albertina – Würstelstand. Now here's a shot of me with my one true love in front of this classic Viennese green-domed building-- Karlskirche. Now, go check it.
