Those that have liked this page for awhile will know I love creating things with dough (Elaine I'm looking at you!). I saw a friend share this on fb recently and have been meaning to try it. The kiddies and I made this today for afternoon tea. It's very rustic thanks to the kiddies but you get the idea. I'll try again when I'm on my own to see if I can get it neater. I didn't twist mine enough but it's still effective. I just used a basic bread dough recipe and nutella. The nutella makes it sweet enough without adding sugar to the dough. Original link? (I think... [...]
Well you all thought Id be turning my herbed cob loaf into a cob dip. Not quite. I have turned it into a very simple Cheese and Herb Pullapart. I’m enjoying experimenting with bread lately. It’s a great thing to take along to BBQs or dinner parties but is also great for weekday lunches now I’m on maternity leave. There is so much you can do with simple bread dough. Make or purchase a cob loaf. Size is whatever you prefer. Here is my herbed cob loaf as shown in the photo. Preheat oven to 180 degrees. Cut the loaf vertically and horizontally. Make my flavoured cheese or make one [...]
These are in the fridge ready to bake to go along with tonight's spaghetti. I use my go to dough recipe for these found here in my bread tips here. Roll a small dough ball. Place a little herb and garlic butter in the centre. Roll into a ball. Bake at 180 degrees for 20 minutes.
Bread rolls are ready for the oven! I love being able to make bread and rolls easily rather than making a mad dash to the shops for a loaf. I use my go to bread recipe that can be found in my bread tips here. Be sure to use a elastic dough for these that can be easily shaped.
Using the same method as my Easy Pizza Pull Apart I made a sun dried tomato pull apart bread for lunch today. Lunch is served!
I am way too addicted to bread I think. I love how easy it is to make dough and I'm having a lot of fun experimenting with it. This is a super easy and very quick way to put together a pull apart loaf.
It's so easy to make your own cob loaf. I use my go to basic dough recipe for these but flavour mine with herbs - parsley, rosemary and basil. Add these in with the other ingredients before kneading.
T his was so simple and easy. Not much more effort than making a pizza really. It takes only a minute extra with one extra step than a pizza. My toppings today were tomato and garlic sauce, bacon, capsicum, onion and cheese. Absolutely delicious! You can make one very large plait or two medium sized ones with this batch of dough. It will take about 25-30 minutes to cook through at 180 degrees. Filling ideas: spinach, feta and pinenuts cheese, garlic, spring onion and parsley ham, cheese and pineapple cheese and vegemite herb butter and cheese leftover chicken and vegetables marinated beef or lamb and vegetables pesto, roasted [...]
Something a little different to garlic bread. These are delicious and a great accompaniment to most dishes. They are much quicker than making traditional garlic bread. You'd be surprised that this uses less oil/butter than a lot of other garlic breads. They just pull away from one another in bite size pieces. Great to share at BBQs! This makes about 20-25 pieces. See my bread tips here.
We love scrolls in this house. They are my go to recipe for weekend lunches, the school lunchbox and if I've run out of bread and feel like something different. I normally chop zucchini and spinach first in the tmx and include in the dough mix to add some extra nutrition. I didn't today as I had run out of these veg. Here are our cheesymite scrolls as well as herb and cheese scrolls. They are so light and fluffy! TIP: Slice into lengths and roll as shown below. Thank you Thermoculture for this great tip!
When making dough and removing it from the bowl there are often small bits of dough stuck around the blades. Pressing turbo quickly twice will flick the dough off the blades and thus making it much easier to clean. This works well for truffle type mixes, meat stuck in the blades, jam etc as well.
