Tuesday night, however, I went to a bread baking demo. I needed to get out for a bit. The kids encouraged this solution to my cranky attitude.
Twyla has been talking about mini-loaves and so I bought this pan when I saw it. It's CUTE.
Wednesday, I took my Seven Grain Bread dough, and instead of 4 BIG loaves, I made 2 BIG loaves and then added Cinnamon, raisins and Rapadura to 1/4 of the dough and Italian herbs to the other 1/4 of the dough. I aimed for 2 mini-loves of each of the speciality breads. Here are the MINI- which are quite a bit bigger than I envisioned when folks talked about "cute little loaves".
When the slices are stacked you can see the mini- is much smaller than my typical size loaf.
Thursday I set out to bake 4 Seven Grain mini-loaves and 2 doz hamburger buns. My Bosch malfunctioned....HOT dough, couldn't even handle and oil in the dough.....and I forgot salt....but I did end up with flat bread and mini loaves. LOL On the left is my typical sized loaf, in the middle I used 1/2 the dough, and a bit less on the right.....I think I like the middle sized loaf.
And now the freezer is stocked with mini Cinnamon Raisin bread, Italian Herb loaves, flat buns and a couple of seven grain loaves. Note the cracking in the mini-loaves....must be the overheated dough or lack of salt....but it still eats. LOL Thus ends my weekly bread saga.
Living all of life before the face of God...
