Rice and Shine

Growing up in the age of internet anxiety, there was an intense, irrational fear of the unknown lurking in the depths of the Worldwide Web. I vividly remember stern warnings from teachers when we first climbed into chairs in the computer lab, the information superhighway at our fingertips. We were coached from day one to guard our privacy ferociously; never give out your real name, so much your phone number or, god forbid, you address, under threat of death or torture. Now here we are in 2021, m...

Eberhardt bun molder question Submitted by Angel on January 23, 2021 - 5:04pm. Hey all,I picked up this sweet old Eberhardt bun molder.

Recipes: These simple soups will save your sanity

Weekday soup suppers can be a real sanity saver. Warm and delicious, these “dinners-in-a-bowl” can be assembled, cooked and on the table in about 25 minutes or less. Add a simple salad and some warm bread if you like; dinner is ready. I keep a list of easy-to-prepare soups on the inside of my pantry door, so in a pinch I have a reminder that I can rely on. It’s a strategy that seems essential in these demanding pandemic times. Most often the prep involves opening a can or two, chopping some vege...

Ilya's Durum/semolina CB

Ilya's Durum/semolina CB Submitted by Ilya Flyamer on January 22, 2021 - 3:30pm. Ilya's durum bake #1Baked a bread in the style of the Hamelman formula provided in the first post. Had to deviate slightly, due to flour availabilty: I had just under 100g of semola remacinata left, and half a bag of pasta flour that is 50% durum. So combining that I could make a ~60% durum 900g loaf, but had to use the 50% durum pasta flour in the levain instead of bread flour. I included 30 ...

Whey Sourdough Bread experiment

Whey Sourdough Bread experiment Submitted by HungryShots on January 22, 2021 - 11:07am. I was eager to test the replacement of water with whey while making sourdough bread. I carefully read previous TFL posts and comments, look after the scientific interpretation of how whey affects the sourdough bread making process and launched myself in the experiment.Of course, I needed to test some limits and I didn't stay on the safe side of introducing only 20% of whey in the liquid. I went f...

Genuine Tiramisu Cupcakes

These tiramisu cupcakes are the real thing in cupcake form! The cakes themselves taste just like ladyfingers and they’re soaked in a mixture of espresso and rum. Then, they are gloriously topped with mascarpone custard, whipped cream, and chocolate. I achieve the perfect topping to cake ratio by baking extra short cupcakes, leaving lots of room for the mascarpone custard and whipped cream. This recipe takes time and effort, but it’s totally worth it. If you don’t have as much time, try usin...

Scoring Boules, Oven Spring

Scoring Boules, Oven Spring Submitted by windycityloafster on January 23, 2021 - 1:22pm. Hello all, first time poster here. I was recently advised to score at an angle when scoring boules. I always do this for my batards and it results in a nice ear and good expansion, but I feel like its out of place on my boules, usually resulting in uneven expansion when I'm trying for symmetrical patterns like this X cut here. Am I poorly executing the proper technique, or is the angled score wi...

Bread misshape

Bread misshape Submitted by Jaybee on January 22, 2021 - 11:45am. Dears, sorry for being a newbee to the backing world. Most of my breads shape very well, but every now and then, the bread tears during the proof phase, see image.In this case i mixed wholegrain with simple flour and used 2 hours of first proof (this went really well) and 1 hour of second proof. During this second phase it misshapes and I dont dare to reshape it anymore at that phase. Probably some kind of rooki...

Hmmm...Challenger Pan side-by-side test

Hmmm...Challenger Pan side-by-side test Submitted by chelseasf on January 23, 2021 - 7:30am. I was excited for my first bake in the Challenger Pan. I baked one loaf of oat porridge sourdough in the Challenger and an identical one in my Emile Henry bread&potato pot. I knew the Challenger loaf wouldn’t be as tall because there are no sides to constrain it, but I didn’t expect this kind of difference. Also, the Challenger loaf is slightly burned on the bottom, a problem I’ve never had ...

You Should Add Baking Soda to Your Ground Meat

The best bread machines in 2021

If you enjoy freshly baked bread but don't have the time or baking skills to make it entirely from scratch, a bread machine or bread maker is a valuable kitchen tool.Most basic bread maker recipes require about 10 minutes of prep work, and you're rewarded with a fresh loaf three to four hours later.  After testing nine bread machines, the Zojirushi Virtuoso Plus is our top pick for most home bakers thanks to its reliability and versatility. It kneads thoroughly, bakes evenly, features customizab...

Comment on triple coconut cream pie by gmg22

Delicious! I saw you revisit this recipe in a tweet last week, Deb, and was immediately inspired to forgo cake and make this for my birthday instead. The food processor method worked great and I found the crust fairly easy to work with — though the only thing I wish I’d done differently would be to make sure to hold back a bit of extra dough for patching the crust after removing the foil during the blind bake. (I didn’t have any issues with the foil sticking, but a few cracks did develop; I smoo...

Comment on better chocolate babka by Mark

Turned out great! I was worried about the baking time after reading the comments so I used a (clean) meat thermometer to take internal temperature and took the loaves out when their center reached 190F — they came out perfect, neither over- nor under-baked! I did also tent them with foil after about 25 min because they were browning quite quickly.

Comment on parmesan oven risotto by Abigayle

I respect the move to the oven, but I’ve been making risotto in my stove top pressure cooker for years…. no stirring and it cooks in 6 minutes (SIX MINUTES!) It always comes out great. I agree with using water and skipping the vegetables. Let risotto be risotto. Although I’m making an exception for mushrooms (a fungus is not a vegetable?) Because mushroom risotto doesn’t ruin the mushrooms.

Comment on roast chicken with schmaltzy cabbage by Tea

In reply to Laura. We made this tonight after prepping the chicken and slicing cabbage the night before. Cooking time took 90 minutes but that may be due to the size of chicken. The cabbage was the best part! Okay, chicken was yummy and skin was crispy from rendering. It helped to dry out the bird uncovered in the fridge overnight. Prep is so simple you don’t need to do it ahead of time.
