We recently attended the Medieval fair in Sao Joao da Madeira, Portugal. Ropes of dough, wound around itself, then cut 4 times with scissors at the top to make them look like the castle towers. Slightly sweet yeast rolls. Anyone have a recipe? Anyone know how the cuts are made?
They are GOOD! I had made them before but the cinnamon bun version, however, the sticky buns are much better. I find this dough very nice to work with and the end result well worth the little effort they take. I just wanted to brag about a success after my recent rustic breads failures. LOL Yum! I have more on them on my blog, http://thymeforfood.blogspot.com/2008/05/bun-by-any-other-name.html
Hey there everybody. I just made this baking video http://youtube.com/watch?v=QfaXbn5HpAY and put it up on YouTube - a little blurry, but I'll try putting a clearer version on our bakery site later. It's a 'how to' without the commentary (if a picture is worth a thousand words, then a video must be worth...). Anyway, let me know what you think, and if you'd like any other topics addressed in my future videos. The next one will be on kneading and folding whole wheat dough. Thanks!
