The submission deadline for Bread baking day moves nearer. And since this time I am the hostess of BBD, I should post my “overnight” recipe in time!
And so I have here a recipe for Sunday rolls which is prepared on Saturday around lunchtime. Due to the fact that the yeast amount is so small, the dough can rise about 16 hours at room temperature without any problem and the long fermentation creates a complex flavour. The next morning I will then form the rolls and let them rise during heating my baking stone. Two hours later the still a little bit sleepy boyfriend and me will sit on the breakfast table, enjoying fresh coffee and oven fresh rolls.
When I need a bigger amount of rolls I tend to form the first batch, wait about 20 min and then form the second batch. So all of the rolls go into the oven at the point where they are perfectly proofed.
There are only two weeks left until the first Advent! So its really time to bake some Christstollen.
I baked, without a change (!), my Christstollen recipe – like I did it in the last four years. I know that its unusual for me not to change a recipe, but this recipe did not only convince me but although my gourmet collegues and my unbribable honest father.
This christstollen stays very moist due to the water roux I included in the recipe and the spices I use (vanilla, mace, cardamom and cinnamon)makes it very delicious. Only a little bit of patient is needed because the Christstollen should be rest for some weeks before eating it. It needs the time so that all aromas can infuse the stollen and merge to a heavenly taste.
The recipe can be found here and the “How to form a christstollen” can be found here.
I sent this entry to Yeastspotting, Susans weekly showcase of yeast baked good.
Where have the past days gone?How could this happen? I missed the fourth Blog-Birthday of “Hefe und mehr”!
And I had already a half ready “Happy birthday” post with the delicious cardamom hazelnut braid! A festive bread, perfect for a birthday breakfast!
The idea to put grounded hazelnuts in a bread was lingering in my head now for quite a while and at some point I decided that using homemade nut butter was an even better idea. Using one of my challah recipes combination with some hazelnut butter and dark cacao created a dark braid with an incredible soft crumb and a well balanced taste of nuts and chocolate. The idea to add some cardamom to the dough was rather spontaneously but the taste of it harmonize perfectly with the cacao and the nuts.
I was very pleased with the braid, and to prevent myself of forgetting the blog-birthday again, I have now a reminder in my calendar on my laptop and mobile
It’s been three years ago that I hosted Bread Baking Day, a blog event which was created by Zorra about five years ago, and we had a great round-up with 48 delicious Sweet Breads. And here I am again, honoured to be hostess of Bread Baking Day #54, too!
After Zorra presented us a great round-up with 342 breads from all over the world at the World Bread Day 2012 last month, it was time for me to think about a theme for Bread Baking Day in november. And while last time I needed to think a while to find the right theme, this time it was very easy for me . During the last – often very busy – year, I became a big fan of overnight recipes. There are so many possibilities to make overnight breads or rolls! And so I decided it would be great to use BBD to gather ideas for overnight breads and rolls.
And so the theme of this month BBD is “Overnight”! You could proof your dough or the loaves and rolls in the fridge or even at room temperature. Play around with a recipe you like and converted it in a overnight version or test something completely new. I’m very curios about your creations!
