locating a recipe

May 26, 2012 - 1:36am -- hornedfox

I am looking for a little help locating a recipe, I saw a picture of a loaf on the right of the web page with what I think are poppy seeds folded into the dough creating a wedge shape when cut. The dough was streched out the seed paste ( may not be accurate) applies and the the dough rolled up. I thought I had saved to favourites but obviously not. Does anyone know which losf I am talking about?

Today's post is a special one!

Oh wait. Every post is a special one :) But this one is something a little different! I've linked up with Cindy over at Once Upon a Loaf for her blogging event, Project PB&J! March is national peanut m0nth, and April 2 is National Peanut Butter and Jelly Day, so Cindy and Christina (of She Runs, She Eats) have put on a contest for the best Peanut Butter & Jelly creation!


Please click over to my blog at for the full post and recipe!

Blueberry Cream Cheese Scones

This quarter is almost over! (!!!!!) Spring break is just around the corner and I can feel it. The weather is getting warmer (and windier - that's San Luis for ya), and it's starting to smell like spring. I can't wait to have some lazy mornings, some days on which I'll do nothing but hike and ride bikes and lounge around.

debugging bread recipe for better results

January 14, 2012 - 10:02pm -- joels


I was originally posting before looking for bread solutions for our hotel and happily came to a few conclusions as a result of the great help from this board, as well as a base recipe to work from to achieve the bread we need. I've tested things out (mostly testing the recipe + our new oven) in a slightly different way than the recipe was mainly intended and have come across mixed results that maybe a few people can fix up based on the details of the prep and baking. 

I'll post the recipe first followed by the results after (courtesy of Ford--Thanks!!):

I like experimenting with different flours to see the nuances they bring to breads.  Here is a recent bake using a small amount buckwheat flour.  It is a large batch that I built for the amount of starter that I had made the night before using the Hamelman method for Vermont SD.  It made 4 loaves that averaged about 750 gm after cooling.  Besides the beautiful color it brings to a loaf, it adds a nutty flavor that, it turns out, works surprisingly well with brie and camembert cheese spread on it.  The crumb is moist and chewy and the crust has a great crunch.  If you like dark baked loaves, this one's for you.


Scored and ready to go:

Hi, this is Daniel Rios (Beyondthebread).  Here is a photo from my latest blog entry using a pan au lait (milk bread) recipe.  I used the dough to make monkey bread, shown here, and will be posting Friday and Monday with 2 more uses for the same dough.  Here is the recipe I used --> . I hope to find bakers who love to talk bread and can add their expertise to my posts.  Come check out the recipes and pictures on  Let me know what you think and share your stories of baking.

I have been a professional baker for over 7 years now and have now started my own website to share everything that I can about my experiences and whatever experiments I decide to try out.  You will be seeing me on this site more often, now that I have found it.  I hope to meet other professional or baking enthusiasts who share my love for all things baking.
