Cindy Omera's Gluten Free Bread

Posted by Bee & John on August 27, 2010 at 4:05 AM Comments comments (4)

I was asked to make a gluten free bread for someone.


Now, I had no idea about gluten free cooking - I understood about the issue, but not what you would cook apart from cook them rice :-)


Soooo.... I did a bit of research, and then tried Cindy's recipe from the Thermomix Gluten free cookbook.


As I had found with my research - 

 

  1. there is no substitute for gluten - there will never be a gluten free bread that tast...

Cheese and Chive rolls

Posted by Bee & John on August 7, 2010 at 5:22 PM Comments comments (0)

I now LOVE making bread... I suppose it is obvious with all the bread recipes I have posted LOL


For this, I "grated" a chunk of tasty cheese and some chives and spring onions first in the Thermomix - then just did the foccacia dough as normal - it just incorporated the cheese and herbs.


LESSON: Although this was tasty it was not as tasty as I thought it would be.  Perhaps a little more cheese, maybe use really tasty cheese, or maybe best with the chees...

Brioche - with dates and apricots

Posted by Bee & John on August 7, 2010 at 5:18 PM Comments comments (0)

Oh Yum!  This was easiest of all... John made it LOL


It was really delicious - great toasted too.  Like a cake but also like a bread.  Gets the sweet thing happening for your palate, but not as naughty as a cake.


Just the basic Brioche bread recipe, but John added chopped apricots and dates.  DELISH!


Mini Vegemite / Peanut Butter scrolls

Posted by Bee & John on August 3, 2010 at 3:36 AM Comments comments (0)

I got up early one day and had plenty of time to make a basic bread dough and have it rise and cook before I went to work.


But I decided to make it a little bit fancy.  I divided the proved dough into two, stretched it until it was approx 30 cm long and then rolled out thin.


I spread a little oil on the first one and then the vegemite.  It isn't necessary, but the oil does make the vegemite spread well.  I then sprinkiled it with a little fre...

Brioche

Posted by Bee & John on July 10, 2010 at 12:20 AM Comments comments (0)

I think I'm turning into a bread nut LOL - I seem to LOVE, absolutely LOVE making it!!


I thought I would try brioche.  Easy to make, like all the doughs.  The dough isn't sticky and came cleanly out of the bowl.


I had to try something different (of course) while the brioche dough was doing it's doubling thing... I mixed


100g of walnuts

1/2 a cinnamon stick

and pulverised on 9 for 6 seconds

Then I added 100g of b...

Fruit and Nut Bread

Posted by Bee & John on July 5, 2010 at 10:44 PM Comments comments (0)

At our demos we use the Basic Bread recipe.


We mill 100g of buckwheat and add in bakers flour and make some bread. It is always a hit and really yummy!  Especially when we bring out some of our fresh butter (made in the thermomix of course)


I was thinking.. if we could mill buckwheat... could we mill nuts?


I had a nutmix with dried coconut and pawpaw and other fruit - you know the mix. I milled 100g of that with flour to make b...

Butter Bread

Posted by Bee & John on May 31, 2010 at 4:55 AM Comments comments (0)

John had a day off today and decided to have a play in the kitchen.  There is always a treat instore for me if I come home after John has had a play :-)

Butter Bread is from the International Cookbook.  John said it was easy to make, took a little time because of the proving of the dough, but was easy in itself to make.  He said it was a lovely dough to work with and was easy to plait.

Garlic Bread

Posted by Bee & John on May 22, 2010 at 7:06 PM Comments comments (0)

I was wondering.... why not put some garlic butter in the bread dough before cooking it?


Was concerned that the butter would make the bread go gooey and not cook properly - but thought it might be ok and have a middle bit garlicy like a chicken kiev.


Nope - but it was actually a huge success.


I made the Foccacia dough up (our favourite) and let it rise.  I then divided into 2 and stretched into french stick shapes.  Cut them in h...

Proving bread dough in the fridge

Posted by Bee & John on May 12, 2010 at 3:46 AM Comments comments (0)

I heard that you could do it... was a bit nervous.. but it worked.


I made a foccacia dough.  Let it rise the first time and then put it in the fridge overnight.


The next morning, I switched on the oven, put in the dough and went to have a shower.  By the time I was dressed and had my face on... the bread was done.


Verdict?  Delish!!!


LESSON: this particular dough (after the first rise) I had rolled out flat...

Thermomix Foccacia. Now that was a fantasic bit of bread! Still fresh and yumm the next day too.


the dough is quite sticky... it is meant to be :-)


HINT: rub a little olive oil on your hands and you won't get any dough sticking to you


HINT: the second time we tried it (yes, now a favourite) we made it into rolls. Oregano, parmesan and tomato on the top. Yum!


THOUGHT: would like to try baking in ham and cheese i...

Buttermilk Bread

5 ticks of yum!


This is the nicest bread we've made so far. Soft, light, fluffy YUMMY!


What made it specially yummy.... i divided the dough into 4, rolled them into thin-ish rectangles... put some of the left over chilli con carne in the middle with some grated cheese and rolled the bread closed over it before baking.


LESSON: don't make the dough too thin, the filling explodes out of it

LESSON: they ended up HUGE. Perhaps divide the...
