I do apologise for the delay in updating you on my Breads challenge but I have still been baking I promise!
I have actually completed a further 3 bakes in my 50 breads challenge but I am still a long way from my target..oops better get my skates on.
Recipe No.3 was a basic white loaf which I somehow neglected to take a photo of .. Sorry! It was good and I’m surprised that I’ve never tried a plain loaf before. Izzy loved it too. The recipe was from Paul Hollywoods How to Bake book.
Recipe No.4 was a variation on a flatbread recipe that I tried a while back which you can read about hereThe simple addition of Sichuan peppercorns (crushed) and chilli&garlic rapeseed oil made this a super tasty bake. Yum.
They are meant to look rather blackened don’t you know?
Recipe No.5 was Foccacia. I will almost certainly be repeating this recipe within the next fortnight. So so so so good. The recipe I used was from my River Cottage book and you can actually find it on the River Cottage site here
I used my spiced salt ( seasalt, chilli flakes and star anise) along with a chilli and garlic rapeseed oil in my dough and chopped fresh rosemary on top. It was my first attempt and I absolutely loved it.
