I have cut down drastically on carbs, so this has meant no bread baking for a while, has anyone a T&T recipe for low carb bread. I am missing my bread :(

I love baking bread Dick but when I do it I can't resist eating it, but it really don't suit me - I just crash a couple of hours later and fall asleep - one small loaf of Waitrose organic wholemeal lasts us a week so I don't bake it for anything other than a very special occasion.

The tins are Nordicware. I got the mini ones from amazon (a bit of a mistake actually. I thought they were going to be bigger.) and the rose ones from Selfridge's kitchen department. A bit of an indulgence. Much cheaper in the U.S...

Hope poor you with the sinusitis. Hope you got some meds for it. My husband had it recently...

That sounds very ingenious, Zosh!

They look lovely Mamta.

I made some gluten-free veggie sausage rolls today. The pastry recipe was from my new river cottage gluten free book. with gluten free quorn sausages. The pastry was the best gluten-free batch I've made so far. A lot easier to work with than previous attempts. But they ended up a bit too dry on top and a bit soggy underneath. Although #2 son ate two, so they can't be that bad!

The book uses mixtures of single flours, so this one was rice flour, buckwheat, tapioca starch, ground almonds with some ground linseed and psyllium husk to bind. Bit complicated, bit expensive!

Today I have made Pecan Brownies which have just had to go back in the oven as they were still half raw. Next time I will go with instinct and not listen to my hubby :twisted:

I made some GF baguettes today. Or rather they are rolls because I used my yorkshire pudding pan as the baguette pan doesn't fit in the oven! Another recipe from RC GF. Really really tasty and actually feels like proper bread. Definitely the best GF bread I've ever made.

Had a go at some cheese straws today. Some pre-made puff pastry. Grated cheddar sandwiched between two layers. pressed together, then cut into strips and twisted.

Partly successful but needs some work. The usual thing of the cheese only being tasty where it has browned. Just need a very strong cheese. Maybe some thinner pastry next time? Even filo? Maybe just being baked longer?

Well. While moaning about the dryness of a piece of coffee and walnut cake at the Chatsworth Garden centre cafe today, my mother said that she didn't like the cakes I made her. I am 90% cross and 10% confidence-smashed. Husband (and I) thought they were very nice.

Mothers- don't you just love em? Easy answer- if she doesn't appreciate them make her no more cakes. You and OH know the cakes are lovely and that she's just being contrary. Stop making her cakes and I'll bet you she starts giving off because you never make her cakes any more.... :rolleyes:

:lol: indeed. Most probably Seatallan. And she will probably be telling her friends about this awful cake I made her and how she didn't really want to tell me... It was immensely rude of her, I think, even if the cake had been awful. I don't think she would have done this when she was younger. Thoughts of all the dreadful food she's served me and buttoned lips springs to mind. But of course will let it go.
She often goes on about a meal I made her when I was a student. She can't remember what it was, but I know for a fact she would hate it now. (It was as possibly somewhat dated '90s meal of tricolore salad followed by roast vegetable risotto followed by wild apricot fool.)

Jo's back with Mo.

Baked white loaf, overnight sponge, marmite loaf and a dozen hot cross buns, though the crosses disappeared - James Martin, sort of.

I'm making low-carb, gluten free rolls: http://mariamindbodyhealth.com/toasted- ... nd-panini/ They've come out purple! (it's to do with the psyillium husk) It's rather amusing me. I've not tried them yet.

Bit of an experiment today.

I like the texture of the bred cooked in a cast iron casserole, but a round loaf is not always convenient for sandwiches etc. So I ordered a cast iron "terrine dish" on-line. It made a nice loaf, but it was a bit narrow. So i thought that I would try some baguettes in it.

They have turned out rather well!! :)

Yes. Three times, but one batch of bread. And the dish was hot all the time, so one out, one in. As they were small, each was in for about 20 mins. Well it was actually done every other ad break during Countdown and Tipping Point!! :D

Looks good to me aero280.

Whilst my white and marmite loaves went down well, the buns were disappointing, nothing like the light, tear apart ones I normally produce. Maybe better toasted. Don't know if it was the recipe or over mixing in the machine (though it rose spectacularly in the bowl) or over baked. Next time I'll try Nigella's overnight mix in the fridge.

Sorry forgot to say - they were really tasty and felt nice too. Light and fluffy in the middle and with a crust. Also still soft the next day (GF bread turns to rocks overnight usually!) Although I did put it in a bag just in case. Caveat - I've not eaten wheat bread for nearly seven years and I have noticed that what I find acceptable others might not! I made a third of the recipe (enough for two small rolls) as a trial run. They are very filling, so only needed one for a meal. Try it!

I don't usually contribute to this thread, but today I have felt like baking, so as we speak I have a fruit loaf/cake thingy in the oven (see K2C's thread ) and inspired by watching Nigella this morning I also have in the oven a Clementine and Almond cake ... and looking forward to tasting that one. As far as I know it's gluten free (not the reason I have made it though, but Hope might be interested) ... :tu:

Tried some Apple Cinnamon Roses tonight. Just to use up the puff pastry I bought. I should have drained the apple slices longer before putting them in the pastry. A bit soggy in the middle and also could have done with more cooking time.

I've done a cake very like that with whole oranges rather than clementines, if I remember it was a recipe using one of the sugar substitutes, xylitol I think. I wasn't sure whether I liked it or not, so owing to some twist of logic I can't now remember I have 2 (I think) pureed whole oranges in the freezer.

If I remember correctly I did the oranges in the pressure cooker which takes about 10-15 minutes (would be less for clementines) as I do for marmalade, which takes a lot of the faff out of the cake.

Now, what to do with those oranges?

I had a third go at the pastry apple roses. This time I dixit all without mistakes. Not sure it's a really good result. It's difficult to get the middle cooked enough to be "non-stodgy" without the outside burning

Then I used up some not very juicy plums and made Dan Lepard's Stone Fruit Yoghurt Cake. It uses e zest if three lemons, so not really a cake to use up tired fruit as it is billed. The iffy plums are gone, buti one have three damaged lemons to find a use for...

We don't really have Easter traditions in this house, but did roast a big chicken, with sausages, chestnut & sage & onion stuffing etc.

Having run out of leftovers mid last week I found a bargain piece of topside on Waitrose counter which we polished off in rare roast beef sandwiches at lunchtime.

So tonight is roasting a lump of gammon as I think it will save money on buying pre=packed sliced ham most weeks. Alongside jacket potatoes & cauliflower cheese as the oven is on for so long.

I guess that is more roasting than baking though.. Again not sure it is baking as such but we did succumb to the temptation of something sweet & for the first time in a decade or more, made a microwave syrup sponge pudding. It amazed me as much as it did the first time I made it! Ok the syrup doesn't go treacley, but still 5 minutes, it's amazing almost watching it rise! :D

Yesterday I made gluten free focaccia. I thought it was really nice. Both boys ate it (so it must've been alright!) Mr Hope commented "If that's good by gluten free standards, I feel sorry for you!" :o :? Well I liked it anyway. He said he'd eat it again, though!

Opened this thread after a while; those baguettes do look good :hungry: . I have given up on them now, too much flour wasted!
Lemon juice; if sugar is not a problem, you can make always make .
Made a few sultana rolls and a loaf yesterday after a long while. It was nice to have home-made bread :)
