Tried something different

  • Hey everybody my wife said the other day "How about making breads that are like potato chip flavors BBQ, Sour Cream and Onion etc. So I figured I would give it a try. The first and so far only one I have tried to make is BBQ. My first attempt I made a basic dough enough for two loaves and added 1 tablespoon of BBQ per loaf. The BBQ flavor was non-existent. My second attempt I replaced 1/4 of the liquid (water) with 1/4 BBQ Sauce, this produced a very slight BBQ flavor. On my third attempt I substituted BBQ sauce for half of the water and finally obtained a bread that has a light but very noticable BBQ sauce flavor. This bread is fantastic as a sandwich bread with turkey imparting a light BBQ flavor to the sandwich. Here's what I did.

1 Cup BBQ Sauce (your choice)

1 Cup Water

4.5 Cups of AP Flour

1 Tablespoon Sugar

1 Tablespoon Yeast 

2 teaspoons Salt 

1 Tablespoon of Onion Powder 

1/8 teaspoon Chili Powder

 

I proofed the yeast in the water and sugar mixture for about 5 minutes. Then added the BBQ Sauce, Salt, Onion Powder, Chili Powder and flour. This I kneaded in my KA for about 10 minutes with the dough hook. Placed it in an oiled bowl and let it rise for about 2 hours. It is stubborn in terms of rising due to the BBQ Sauce. I seperated the dough into two halves and formed the loaves. I let these rise for about another hour and 20 minutes. Then I glazed them with a mixture of egg yolk and pinch of sugar. Slashed them and baked them at 350 degrees F. for about 40 minutes.

idea!  They sure look BBQey to me.  Bet they taste great.  What do you think about using so BBQ spice rub in the dough as it ferments (like you put on ribs) and then sauce the loaf later :-) ??

Can't wait to see your other concoctions.

My next attempt I was gonna put some BBQ seasonings in the dough along with the BBQ Sauce to try and get more BBQ flavor from it. It's getting really close to what I'm after flavor wise right now so I don't want to add to much. I don't want the BBQ Sauce flavor to overwhelm any other flavors just be a little more pronounced. My next "flavored" bread isn't going to be a potato chip flavor but instead I'm gonna try using "Tikka Masala" sauce.

doing some garam masala naan right now.  Need it for tonight's steak kabob dinner with veggies.  Doing the bread with the rest of the meal on the grill.    Chicken Tikka Masala is the most ordered take out meal in the UK so I'm guessing they would love your 'Tikka' bread too!
