Re: bread help please!

well I managed an awesome loaf yesterday using my normal sponge base, but more kneading and a rise in the little cubby next to the dishwasher.

thanks for the help!

sometimes sugar, sometimes flour. I find both work equally well.

Re: bread help please!

I can't really help as I don't make my bread that way. I make mine rather quicker by mixing and kneading in a Kenwood and put straight into 1lb loaf tins. The only way I get dense heavy loaves is if I didn't leave it long enough to rise, which in my case is just over doubled in size, and then bake ...

Re: out of date beans

I went round correcting the handwritten signs in the community hall we use for a home ed craft group. I did some with sharpie, and some with tippex. I was applauded by a couple of other parents who'd wanted to do the same, but hadn't had the nerve lol. the signs haven't been changed.... I marked the...

Re: Making pasta

I don't use a pasta machine, mine made me so angry I gave up on it lol.

the most popular home made pasta in this house is tortelloni with a bacon and cheese fillling.

bread help please!

I make bread with an overnight sponge base method, but the crumb keeps on coming out really really dense. I've tried kneading with my Kenwood, and I've also tried just kneading by hand but it never comes out as light as I'd like. the recipe I use is: night before wishing to make the bread put 3 cups...

Re: Out of date tins

There was a tin found in a shipwreck that was 150+ years old. Upon opening, it was found to still be in edible condition, and the cat that the contents were fed to suffered no ill effects. awesome, but cats are not a good benchmark. their stomachs contain enzymes which can break down even camplobac...

Re: Are You at risk?

I just did it and it says I'm at high risk. It seems to have assumed that when I answered "no" to low blood pressure and blood sugars that it was because I'd not been tested! Apparently it won't accept that I can be over-weight but not have hyperglycaemia and hypertension. What a really bad questio...

Re: I love a bargain,what did you buy today??

I was at the thrift store yesterday looking for a pair of shoes, found some that look like they were never worn, and fit perfectly. Plus, I found a food processor with a dough blade (my shoulder doesn't tolerate kneading very well, and my no-knead bread attempts always came out lumpy and crumbly), ...
