In Engelskirchen, in dem mit dem Christkind-Postamt in jedem Jahr in der Adventszeit himmlische Zeiten anbrechen, weihnachtet es bereits schon sehr. Und auch der Nikolaus war nicht untätig: Für den letzten Backkurs des Jahres (“Brotbacken für Anfänger” am 10. 12.) hat der Nikolaus heute einen Rabatt für alle Kurzentschlossenen mitgebracht.
About 200 rolls made from about 12kg flour, that was the outcome of a sucessful bread baking day. The theme of the successful second bread baking course was “homemade rolls” and took place in “raum44”. I knew already from the first course that my time schedule was working properly but I was a bit nervous anyway. But as soon as the first cheerful participants arrived I relaxed as I realized that this was going to be great day!
Done! The first two bread baking courses are lying behind us.
The subtitle of the course could be “Some like it hot”, too, as the summer came back with full power at the end of august. Even in the normaly cooler “Bergische Land” we reach temperatures above 30°C. Already at 10 o’clock it was hot, and the three ovens which were already running heated the room additionally. But that does not stop the participants – fearless they all dive into the dough.
In the last months I baked a lot and tweaked recipes a lot without showing anything on the blog. And there is a reason for that:
Christmas Eve is very near now and I want to use the time to wish you all a merry and peaceful Christmas! The dearest and me will have a piece Panettonne (recipe will come soon) before we leave to meet with the family.
All the best!
