Experiment gone very well !!
Good day folks, today started as any other bread days. I started with the only intentions of making a couple french boulles, and a couple ciabatta's with a poolish I started yesterday. What I ended up with was my origional intentions, but I still had extra poolish, and no idea as to what to do with it. Then I eyed something on my counter. The coffee machine with a half pot of coffee still on it. I thought what if I tried creating a new recipe from stratch. A coffee bread of my own. So I did. Following is some photos of my experiment. Not only was my recipe awesome, if I do say so myself. I thought, what do people normally dip their bread in, I figured coffee or hot cocoa. Since I already had the coffee bread, I decided to try and make a chocolate butter to put on it. Wow, I am so happy with my outcomes, its one of the best feelings I have had while baking since I made my first cookie from scratch. My Ciabatta's came out good, but this was great.
The coffee color, and flavor is there, but not to overpowering. With the chocolate butter on top, its almost like a mocha taste when you bite into the bread. The best part, it was very easy to make. My wife and kids told me its a definate keeper.
Well off to get my boulles out of the oven. Till later.........
