Instead it whooshed by and I was happy to be saving for a house. And before I left for work, I put today's bake on the table, for Tim. There's a few mistakes but I'm happy with it.
I did what Paul Hollywood suggested which was put a roasting pan of cold water at the bottom of the oven, before baking. And use oil for kneading instead of extra flour.
Worked great. Cannot wait to get my new book.
Well, it's getting late and I need to shower and get to bed. You Boogerbutts have a good night, or depending on where you live, have an excellent morning.
Thanks for reading and boogie boogie.
How could I say no to a post title like this?ReplyDelete
Gotta admit, I was a bit worried when I read that title!!ReplyDelete
Your post titles rock, Whisk!ReplyDelete
Oh that looks beautiful. - The bread that is. I've also read, but have not tried ice in a pan in the oven.ReplyDelete
Mmm, that bread looks yummy. I'll just stick to eating it instead of baking it, though. It's more fun!ReplyDelete
Hanny: That's a true saying in our house. When I got home Tim asked me how work went and I said, "it didn't totally suck monkey balls."ReplyDelete
Ray: Worried? What's wrong with balls in the title?

Bam, blog post title.
Southpaw: The baking book I use now suggests cubes but I haven't tried it yet. Figure I will try all three ways, with the same dough. Just to see the difference.
Stacy: Oh, but making it is the most fun part, I swear.
I would love some homemade bread. I need to become a baker!ReplyDelete
is pastry softer and nicer if you put water in the oven?ReplyDelete
But it should be used only by those who have really clean ovens, because the steam will start peeling the dirt and grease off of the walls and some of it could drop onto the cake :(
That bread looks perfect!ReplyDelete
mm, that twisty bread looks delicious. Man, if you were my neighbor I'd be over all the time.ReplyDelete
Twisted...bread looks yummy. I made some banana bread...it doesn't help my die...t at all ;)ReplyDelete
I have to try the oil kneading thing. I have used the pan of water in the bottom of the oven.ReplyDelete
Dana: Have you baked much? It's so much fun, I swear.ReplyDelete
DEZMOND: I didn't get to eat any of it until it was much later and already been bagged. But from a sound standpoint, it sounded like a better crust.
mshatch: That would be fun.
Kim: How'd the banana bread turn out?
Susan: It didn't take much oil at all. Just a wee bit but I loved how it worked.ReplyDelete
I have no idea how you get the bread to end up looking like that....ReplyDelete
