Hello, recently I tried to make filo pastry/ puff pastry sheets at home and tried with margarine and butter and they came out ok. I see these small unorganized bakeries near my house and they make stuffed puff pastry. To save cost I am sure they do not use butter ad also when I eat them, I cannot taste butter. I too want to try at home the same procedure but have no idea what they use. Can I try to make puff pastry sheets with oil, will it work. Pleas guide as to what all I can use Thanx
I had a bakery frosting yesterday that was amazing and I would really like to come close to reproducing it. As I am more of a savory bread baker than sweets baker, I need help. I will do my best to describe it and hope someone knows and could provide me with a recipe. It was on a white cake with some coconut grated on it but not a lot.
color: white, pretty white. Not yellow at all
texture: medium to medium firm while cold but not rock hard. definitely softer when at room temp
hello! my name is mollie. I am a newbie baker and I have only looked to find the perfect white bread and I have been pretty happy with it so far.
well I have three young kids so I made double the recipe, made three loaves of bread and froze two of those, and I froze the dough in three separate bags so I can bake them when I needed them.
Hello everyone. I've been researching the perfect Bavarian Pretzel recipe all week. I ran across this recipe here, which is a great recipe for Bavarian pretzels.
I am still dialing in a few things, and I would like to get some insight from fellow bakers.
1. Diastatic Malt Powder vs. Barley Malt Syrup (non-diatstatic):
First time posting ....
I recently embarked on a wild yeast journey, making Tartine's country loaf for the first time this weekend. I've been baking challah using commercial yeast for years, but this was my first time using a starter, etc.
A friend of mine gave me her starter, and I fed it and left it on the counter for 12 hours and it failed the float test. I decided that my kitchen was too cold, so I put it in my oven, having turned it to 200 degress and then turning it off.
