Baking Bread, Rolls & Pizza
So hear is my thoughts on my progress so far...
It is not hard to do....it takes me about 1/2 hour (with interuptions from small people) to mix the recipe.
Wait for an hour for it to rise,
cut in half, flatten to a rectangle and roll, put into bread pans, this takes 5 mins
wait an hour for it to rise again
Bake for 35 mins
So there is a lot of waiting! I have been making it in the mornngs, on rainy days or if we have not plans that day and are going to be around the house.
I am still working on the recipe itself. I did mess up once and it came out great!, but I could not remember what I did! So far what I like to do is...
Use the recipe on the King Arthur flour and 1/2 and 1/2 it with wheat flour plus I replace the sugar for honey.
I have found that the dough makes great rolls too! after the first rise I shaped the rolls, and put them in an oiled round cake pan, let them rise again, cover with foil and put them into the freezer until I was going to use them for dinner that week, then I thawed them while dinner was cooking and popped them in the oven for 10-15 mins.
I triied using it for pizza dough, but it was to doughy? The premade pizza dough at Roach Bros was mauch better!
