Then I made parsnip and celeriac bake for dinner...delish. A huge bag of parsnips from Lidl were 50p this week.

She will happily clean the floor all day, and the dining table. Haven't convinced her to do the worktop yet as she has to stand on a chair and she is still very small (wearing 12-18 month clothes still and she is 2 years 4 months)

Lovely stuff, fizl!

Breadmaking next?

Made a carrot cake and a chocolate cake - both vegan - plus a pizza with blitzed roasted onion and balsamic vinegar instead of tomato, plus vegan cheese.

Couldn't try either of the cakes since I began a fast straightaway after dinner! :(

Paul I love the sound of your onion pizza sauce. I will definitely do that one day!

Today I baked yet another spelt soda bread (love it!) and Dan Lepard's stone fruit cake with (tinned) peaches and (frozen homegrown) raspberries. Unfortunately it wasn't cooked until just before the boys' bedtime, so we'll have to wait until tomorrow to have any.

Here's a post on my blog about breadmaking and kids with some ideas - I'm sure you'll have more:

Hello Paul, good morning. I went to Sainsbury's at 6 this morning to avoid crowds,, but no luck, people were already there before me :roll:
I must do a fast day tomorrow. there are just too many temptations around the kitchen at the moment!
No, I am not baking this week, too much to do. I just bought some ready made artisan breads for the family visiting on Christmas day. We will be around 10 people (2 children counted as 1one ) for two breakfasts, 25th and 26th.
Have a lovely baking session with grandchildren and a lovely Christmas :tu:

Re: what have you baked today?

Postby Breadandwine » December 25th, 2012, 1:40 am

This morning, with the help of my grandchildren, we baked (all with bread dough):

Mincemeat tarts
Christmas loaf
Christmas tear and share loaf
Marzipan sandwiches - cut out the dough in a bell shape, say, roll out the marzipan and cut out the same shape, then another dough shaped bell on top
Reindeer droppings
Gluten free 'sizzlers' - bread wraps with cheese and tomato filling

This evening I made 5 rolls from the rest of the GF dough which I'd had proving all day, plus a sunflower oil brioche with which to wrap my homemade haggis for Christmas dinner tomorrow.

The haggis en croute has just come out of the oven and I've had a taste of the crust - it is absolutely gorgeous! No, glorious is a better word!

While I'm writing this down I'll give the ingredients - otherwise I might forget.

160g mix of strong and plain flour (I'd run out of bread flour!)
1 stock cube
1 rounded teaspoon of curry powder
1/2 teaspoon mixed herbs
4 s-d-tomatoes chopped small
10g fresh yeast
70g lukewarm water
20g tomato puree
1 dessertspoon vegan pesto
25g EVOO

Mixed into a dough.

Then 80g of the oil from the s-d-ts was poured into the bowl and incorporated into the dough - with difficulty. After a couple of minutes squeezing and turning repeatedly it was pretty ragged and I thought I'd used too much oil. But I persevered and suddenly it became like a ciabatta dough - neither a batter or a dough, but somewhere in between. At this stage I added a further 25g of flour and, after a bit more kneading and squishing (to use the technical term! :)). I was able to begin rolling it out. It was a very wet dough and after a couple of attempts I realised I'd be better rolling it out on some baking parchment, which was what I did. Flouring it liberally, I got it to the size I required, covered the dough with thinly sliced mushrooms and gently folded the dough over the haggis. Normally I would hack away with a pair of scissors to get the least amount of dough to haggis ratio I could. Not this time. I was just happy I'd enclosed it.

I'll continue this story tomorrow - I have a load of pics I'll post on my blog and I'll give all the references I need to (including Tartine's olive oil brioche recipe, which I followed loosely).

Goodnight, and a Merry Christmas to all the bakers out there! :D :D :D

Thanks, suff! You're an early bird, aren't you?

However, on this occasion, I wasn't far behind - the grandchildren were ready to open their presents at 7, so we all had to be there to witness it! :(

Must admit I had an hour's kip this afternoon! :tu: :tu: :tu:

I made bread pudding and Pan Rustico yesterday. I had run out of wholemeal bread flour for the Pan Rustico so used wholemeal plain flour. The bread came out lighter, tasted ok, so may use wholemeal plain flour again.

Today, I'm making bacon & onion fougasse. Never made it before, so will be interesting to see how it comes out.

yesterday I made a chocolate and orange drizzle cake. accidentally!

I started off making this: http://www.bbc.co.uk/food/recipes/choco ... cake_44817 but with sunflower oil instead of olive, and the zest of one orange instead of vanilla.

But it had a bitter aftertaste and didn't taste orangey enough, so I squeezed the orange, poked the cake with a skewer and poured the juice over.

It's gorgeous - moist, light, tasty. Even Mr Hope who professes to not like chocolate loves it. (Shame really, as that means there's less for me!)

Yesterday I baked two banana-based loaves, one with sultanas and one with stem ginger. They looked lovely when they came out of the oven and I put them on a wire rack in the back porch to cool. Foolishly, I didn't cover them or close the outside door so when I went to retrieve them something (birds?) had tucked into the tops of them!
(I cut the damaged tops off then tasted a slice. Sod's law - it was one of the best I've made so I sliced them both & have frozen the individual pieces for later. Would you have thrown them away?)

I made Dan Lepard's Panettone yesterday. It's turned out OK. I think it could have risen more, but I seem to have a poor rise every time I make a sweet, buttery, dough. Next time I may put in more yeast. I think that was the tip from Paul Hollywood on GBBO.

I'll try a photo later...

I've just remembered about a photo - and we have eaten half of it!! :)

Photo is slightly blurred... Could have risen a touch more and it coud have done with 10 mins more in the oven, but the top was getting very dark and the skewer came out clean.

I'm having a go at making naan bread today (never made it before). It's on it's prove at the moment with another 45 minutes or so to go then I'll be knocking it back, rolling it into naan shapes, brushing with melted ghee and cooking on both sides in my large crepe pan. Getting quite excited - I love naan bread.

Well, that was a complete disaster!

The dough was very sticky and not at all of a consistency where I could roll it out. Not wanting to completely waste it - I "dolloped" it onto the heated griddle pan and cooked on both sides but it just wasn't naan bread! The recipe I used said to use plain flour which I did - could this have been the reason for failure?

Oh well, will have to try again - if anyone has a simple T & T recipe I'd quite like to have another go today.

I have in: bread flour, plain flour, yoghurt, fast acting yeast, sugar, salt, eggs, ghee.

Any help would be gratefully receive as really don't want to go searching around the internet.

Thank you x

Hi Mrs W!

Here's my T&T naan bread recipe



As long as you keep the proportion of water to flour the same, you can play around with this recipe as you wish!

Cheers, Paul

Many thanks Paul - I was hoping you'd be along at some point. I have printed the recipe out and will now have a go tomorrow instead as I was in a definite baking mood so decided to make some individual carrot buns to keep me out of mischief and satisfy my baking urge for today.

Carrot Buns

3.5 oz dark brown sugar (I used demerara)
6oz margarine
1 egg
1 tbsp water
8 oz grated carrots (had some leftover from Christmas languishing in the bottom of the fridge)
5 oz plain flour
1 tsp baking powder
1/2 tsp bicarb of soda
1 tsp ground cinnamon
1/4 tsp grated nugmeg
1/2 tsp salt

Preheat oven to 180C. 12 cup bun tray greased or use muffin paper cases

Cream marg and sugar until light and fluffy then beat in the egg and water. Stir in the carrots. Sift in the flour, baking powder, bicarb, cinnamon, nutmeg and salt. Stir well to mix. Spoon mixture into your bun tray or cases (sitting in bun tray). Bake for about 25 mins until the top springs back when touched lightly. Stand for 10 mins in tray and then put on cooling rack.

Mine will be iced/decorated with some form of buttercream icing and various decorations tomorrow. Recipe makes 12 (but I only have 10 left due to the necessity to taste). The texture is nice and light.

Thanks.

For comparison here's the recipe for my vegan carrot cake - could easily be carrot buns, of course!

165g s/r flour
200g sugar
1 tsp ground cinnamon
½ tsp ground cloves
½ tsp ground ginger
80g grated carrots
70g chopped walnuts
80g vegetable oil
220ml water

Assemble dry ingredients - stir with a whisk to distribute spices evenly. Add oil and water - stir with a spoon then with a whisk. Bake in an 8" tin for 35-40 minutes until a skewer comes out clean.

I don't bother icing this cake - for two reasons. First of all we can do without the extra calories - and secondly, I'm a lazy git!

The s/r flour just saves baking powder, really. The different spices are interesting - I really like the flavour that the addition of cloves gives to the cake.

I'm much less adventurous with sweet spices than I should be. This is the only recipe I use cloves in, for instance.

Note to self:
Next time you make fruit buns, include a teaspoon of ground cloves!

Just to finish, it's my wife's favourite cake! :)

I've had a great few weeks baking while daughter has been home.

Oat cookies (vegan) with peanut butter and/or raisins. Ginger cookies with lots of spices and stem ginger.

I made a batch of basic cake mixture on Sunday and added, fruit to some, Turkish delight drinking chocolate to another few and coconut to a few more. To name but a single batch of cakes.

I've baked several pies both vegetarian and meat.
And the bread, loads of it in particular her favourite sweet potato bread.

But tomorrow my daughter wends her way back for exams so it will be no more baking for a while. I must send her stocked up with baked goodies though.
Thanks, Annie

I have removed some home made puff pastry from the freezer and intend to make some Eccles cakes when it has defrosted.

I used to often mess about with the recipe slim. Leaving out the raisins, adding chocolate chips or roughly chopped hazelnuts leaving out the peanut butter but adding an extra tablespoon of margarine (or butter in the case of leaving out the peanut butter) to get the right consistency as they can be a bit on the dry side to work with without that bit extra.
The recipe is quiet old and only in oz I've never converted it to grams.
Ginger cookies:

10oz plain flour
1 tsp baking powder
2 tsp ground ginger
1 tsp ground nutmeg
2 tsp ground cinnamon
1/4 teaspoon salt
5 tblsp vegetble oil
5 tblsp black treacle
8 oz dark brown sugar
1 very large egg or 2 small ones
8 pieces ginger in syrup(cut 2 into small thin strips and reserve for the tops and chop the rest)
caster sugar for coating.

Sift together the flour, baking powder, salt and spices.
beat until smooth the oil, treacle and sugar, add the egg, chopped ginger (with any syrup attached) and flour.
Put caster sugar on a plate and when the mixture is combined take dessert spoonfuls, form into a ball and toss in the sugar to coat. Put coated cookies onto a baking sheet and place a piece of ginger on the top of each one they will spread quite a bit so allow plenty of room. Bake at 180C for approximately 10-12 minutes.
I find it makes around 45 cookies. The sugar coating does make a difference.

As with the oat cookies I have no idea how long they last as they disappear very quickly.
