Wheat Rye Bread Number 3

Weizenmischbrot Nr 3 (2)

Just a few days after I read about Björn’s wood fired oven adventures I stumbled about an older newspaper telling about the oven in the local history museum just 20 km from my home. Each second Saturday of the month the oven is heated and everyone is invited to come and bake their bread – just like it was done traditionally in the old communal ovens. Reading that I got very excited and wrote an email instantly, asking if they still do this as the newspaper was already a bit older.

I got a fast answer and the invitation to join the bakers group the following Saturday as the oven is still used regulary! And so, I must warn you at this point: this post is longer and with more photos than normal because I had a wonderful time in the museum!

Favourite Recipes

To prevent Micha from feeling alone with her DUBB – Event I have collected all my favourite recipes here. For some of them, like my beloved Wheat and Rye No. 2 or the christstollen, I tend to repeat myself as I repeatedly tell you how much I love them. Others are more quieted, but well loved as well. And how many favourites I have I just learned when started to make this little round up.

Shooting Star Bread

SternschnuppenbrotMy mother and me are cut from the same cloth. Wenn one of us says that she baked the “favourite bread” we know that we both mean the same bread. It tastes gorgeous and we love its crisp crust and tender crumb, but besides that it is great to play with. And so my mum send me some pictures of some breads she baked for her colleagues shortly before Christmas. Instead of decorating it with a rose, she made breads with a star decor. I fell in love with this idea immediately! Especially as I planed to bake a “thank you” bread for some friends who gave me beautiful paper stars for my christmas tree. A bread decorated with a shooting star would be great gift for them. On the first day of Christmas I then started the dough and decorate the loaf with a star, some long slashes for the comet tail and poppy seeds for the night sky. It worked as well as I hoped and I got a beautiful bread for Christmas time!

Handbrot

Handbrot (1)When I stroll over the Christmas market I’m often wondering about the enormous prices for little helpings of Schupfnudel, fried mushrooms or molten raclett cheese. And so I’m little tempted to spend my money there. But what I take with me this time was an inspiration for “Handbrot”. The name means literally hand bread and is a pieces of bread dough filled with Cheese, bacon or mushrooms. The versions sold on the cologne Christmas market where baked to pale for my liking and the dough contained surely to much yeast, but while looking on the breads a recipe started to appear in my mind.

As basis I used my favourite bread recipe but added some additional potatoes for a softer crumb. The filling is a mild gouda cheese, mushrooms and crisp fried smoked tofu. For non-vegetarian  persons you can of course use bacon as well! Served still warm from the oven this little breads are a great treat with the gooey cheese. But they taste delicious when cooled, too. Then you can taste the complex flavour of the bread as well as the flavour of smoke tofu and cheese.  And while eating my dearest and I started already to think about new variants: using raclett cheese instead of gouda or filling the breads with feta and dried tomatoes. There a millions of possibilities laying before us …

Angeschobenes Weizenmischbrot

angeschobenes Weizenmischbrot

I wished that everyone bake his/her favourite bread for my 5. Blog-Birthday. But as Zorra and Melanie >I had to face the fact that I already blogged about my favourite bread! And to bake it once again seemed a little bit borring to me. And so I decided to do something I was think about for already quite some time: I doubled the amount and baked the bread in the wooden baking frame, similar to the Pumpkin Potatoe Bread I baked for World Bread Day.

Due the isolating capacity of the thick wooden frame and other breads, the loaves develop no crust on its sides, while bottom and top get a thick, aromatic and crisp crust due to the long baking time. The crumb is very soft and light with only small holes, so that the honey will stay on my breakfast bread, too. A perfect every day bread that taste good with sweet spreads and hearty cheese. And due to the different kind of baking it taste really a little bit different to the “normal” bread, the flavour has somehow more depth.

So this is my part for my Blog Event. Whoever wants to submit a bread can do so until 30th November! Readers without blog can participate, too! All informations about the Blogevent you can find here. Continue reading
