Ofenschlupfer

OfenschlupferWhen I have some old sweet rolls I love to use them in the swabian variation of bread pudding. It is called “Ofenschlupfer” and consists traditional of sliced rolls and apples, soaked with eggs and milk, sprinkled with sugar and baked until golden. It is one of my favourite dishes of my childhood.

In the last years I forget this family recipe a little bit. What a pitty – it is such a delicious dish, a of a soft bread layer under a crispy crust, a mixture of tangy fruits and sweet caramel. Served with a vanilla sauce it is a great dessert (or main dish if you choose not to share it)

Today I prepared a variation of the traditional recipe and used blueberries instead of apples.

It tasted great and I promised myself that I will cook Ofenschlupfer more often in future! Continue reading

Pizza dough with sourdough and poolish…

Collage … or the pizza dough who wanted to be a bread.

I just planed to bake a simple pizza. But after JT’s delicious rustic bread I though that I should try another pizza dough variation with Sourdough and Poolish. And after kneading I could already feel how good the result would be. The gluten structure was very nice and the dough rose very good. After folding the dough the first time I knew this dough has to become a bread.

Multigrain bread

DSC_1713When Steve of Bread Cetera posted a recipe for Multigrain bread recently I knew that this is a recipe I had to try because I love any kind of Multigrain bread!

I changed some smaller details of the recipe due to my pantry: I replaced sunflower seeds with sesame seeds because sunflower seeds survive seldom long enough in our pantry to go into a bread dough. Then I used cracked spelt instead of cracked wheat just because I liked to add another grain into the dough and then I did not get any high gluten flour here so I bake it with normal flour (Type 550). I think that the missing high gluten flour is the reason why I did not get a so open crump! But missing open crumb do not effect the taste! The bread is very delicious, a bread I will bake again!

Joghurt-Honig-Vollkornbrot mit Pâte fermentée

Joghurt-Honig Brot mit VorteigZorra von 1x umrühren bitte hat zum 4ten Mal zur Teilnahme am World Bread Day aufgerufen. Dem komme ich natürlich nur zu gerne nach. Jeder, der am 16.10.09 ein Brot bäckt und verbloggt oder auch über ein gekauftes Brot einen Post schreibt, kann daran teilnehmen. Man muß nur bis zum 17.10. seinen Beitrag über das Formula auf Zorras Seite anmelden.

Mein Brot für den World Bread Day ist im Grunde kein neues Rezept. In ähnlicher Form habe ich es hier mit Buttermilch und hier mit Joghurt gebacken. Aber diese Variante mit Pâte fermentée gefällt mir am Besten. Es ist so wunderbar locker geworden, dass man nie denken würde, dass es sich hierbei um ein Vollkornbrot handelt! Durch den etwas höheren Buttergehalt eignet es sich auch sehr gut als Toastbrot, doch ich esse es lieber ungetoastet entweder zum Frühstück mit Honig oder mit Salat und Käse als Sandwich.

Pumpkin Bread

KürbisbrotAutumn means to me: red leaves, apple scent and orange pumpkins. So what is a better bread for autumn then a pumpkin bread?

The basis for this bread was a recipe for simple bread with poolish, I just replace the water with pumpkin puree. My pumpkin puree contains some water, so I get a soft dough and did not need do add some water.

The bread turned out nice, with a nice orange crumb and a slight taste of pumpkin. But the next time I would add some pumpkin seeds and pumpkin seed oil to enhance the flavor. Continue reading

Whole wheat potato bread

Kartoffel-Vollkornbrot I am back from my holidays and I am back in the chaos. The lab I am working in is moving into a new building and after two years of postponeing the university preponed it now. So instead of having a whole week to pack my stuff in lab only the weekend was left. When we came back I go dirctly to the lab. I was so relived that I sorted everything in advance!

The moving itself was very exhausting and I was to tired to write something in my blog or even to read other blogs. But the main part is now done and today I have a day off because we have a security inspection. We Ph.d. students should stay away because the less persons are around the less mistakes can be done (like entering a lab without labcoat).

So I have time for answering comments, reading other blogs, writing new posts and enjoying Susans weekly Yeastspotting. Of course I bake a little bit, too. A soft whole wheat potato bread! Continue reading

Almond Cinnamon Swirl Bread

Mandel Zimt BrotSince last BBD I have a lot sweet breads on my toDo list. Especially raisin cinnamon breads are on top of the list. But raisins are a minor problem here. My boyfrind is sure that raisins are murdered grapes. He always tells me that it is better to eat them fresh. 🙂

So I decided to replace raisins with almonds. The recipe was inspiered by Steve and Sara.

The Bread taste so good! And when I toast it the whole kitchen is filled with cinnamon fragrance.

Almond-Cinnamon-Swirl-Bread

Dough:

  • 250g flour Typ 550
  • 250g flourTyp 1050
  • 20g sugar
  • 10g malt diastic
  • 5g salt
  • 7g fresh yeast
  • 1 egg
  • 30g butter
  • 150g yoghurt
  • 50g milk
  • 120g water
  • 100g almond, chopped

filling:

  • 50g sugar
  • 4g cinnamon
  • 20g melted butter

Knead the incredients for 3 min on slow speed, then another 5 min with high speed untill medium gluten development.

Ferment the dough for one hour.

Roll the dough into  a square ( 25 cm x 40 cm, the shorter side as long as the bread pan) and spread with melted butter. Mix sugar with cinnamon and sprinkle on the dough and roll it from the long side into a log. Place in a buttered pan.

Proof for one hour untill it double its volume.

Bake at 220°C for 30 min.

Kaiser rolls with Pâte fermentée

KaiserbrötchenMy family loves baking, and Sarah, the best friend of my little sister, loves it, too. So our last Mother-Children-Friends-Day had a motto: Bread baking. We bake pretzels and Kaiser rolls. Baking in a group is so much fun!

I found a recipe for Kaiser rolls some time ago at chefkoch.de, and bake and blog about it, but I was never really satisfied with the taste. I missed the complex flavors that the diffrent types of preferments give to a bread.

So I create my own recipe for Kaiser rolls: with pâte fermentée, less yeast and more time. And that improves the flavor so much!

Kaiser rolls

for 20 rolls

Pâte fermentée

  • 175g whole wheat flour
  • 165g flour Typ 550
  • 230g water
  • 1g Hefe
  • 5g Salz

Dough

  • 570g Pâte fermentée
  • 10g yeast
  • 700g flour Typ 550
  • 40g soft butter
  • 15g salt
  • 370g water

Toppings

  • poppy seeds or other seeds

Mix all ingredients for the Pâte fermente and proof it for 2 hour at room temperature. Then put the dough into the fridge for 12 hours.

Now mix the incredients for the dough and knead 5 min at the slowest speed and 5 min at higher speed until medium gluten development.

Ferment for one hour.

Divide into pices of 80g each and roll every piece to a 20 cm long strang. Make a knot acording to these instruction.

For poppy seed rolls wet the sureface of the rolls a little bit, then dipp the roll in poppy seeds.

Proof for one hour, then bake at 230°C with steam for 25 min.

Toastbrot

Das Toastbrot ist eine Abwandlung des Toastbrots aus Bertinets “Brot für Genießer”. Ich habe allerdings die Hefemenge reduziert und zusätzlich einen Vorteig hinzugefügt. Es wird angenehm locker und läßt sich gut toasten, schmeckt aber auch ungetoastet sehr gut. Am Besten schmeckt es mir mit selbst gemachter Orangenmarmelade
