A bit late, but I just want to get this post out at least this year. Remember the World Bread Day October 16th? Well I've baked a few recipes for the After Hours Party. I didn't come round to making all I wanted, there were so many. I still have some recipes left, but I don't think I get round to them for a while. So I'm posting it now. At the moment I have a killer back ache, can hardly move, sleep, sit, stand, lay down or type without pain. Baking is out of the question right now, very disappointing for the kids as we can't bake/decorate our christmas-cookies. Can only type while I try to support myself with my elbows on the table, so this is not going to be a lovely holiday season I'm afraid. But I'll try to make some posts about things I already made as long as I'm able too. So first the breads for the After Hours Party.
From "Lost in Kitchen" by Giovanna I made the Panini dolci al limone e cannella. I just changed the cross (as they reminded me of hot cross buns for easter) and gave them a Christmassy look by making a star on top. Lovely fragrant sweet rolls.
From "Fragole & Limone", by Sara, I made the Panecon farina buratto e noci.
A wonderful loaf with a poolish, which are my favorite kind of breads. Walnuts are just great in this bread.
Cris from "Crazy tea party" had the recipe in Spanish, so I used the google translation, which was very funny/stupid in some parts, but at least I could understand what was written (I hope). Pan de Higos e Hinojo; a bread with fennelseeds and dried figs. Lovely combination, just what I like. The kids picked all the fennelseeds out, because they don't like them. I thought it was just lovely. I only made one alteration, I didn't use 10 g salt in the sponge. With the 10 g in the dough that is made the next day, that would be far to salty for me/us. It made a great bread.
Thank to Zorra for making this event happen, thanks everybody for all the wonderful recipes! Until next year.
