The up and downs.
Again I made my quick bread. The treacle whole wheat loaf.
It again was a success! I think I have hit the nail on the head! This time the Whole wheat/white ration was 75 WW and 25 White. I kneaded it for 15 mins and even got a windowpane! *falls over in shock*
Heres a picture of the finished loaf. This time slashed and it rose so beautifully. I could cry!
and a front on with slices shot....
woo hoo! :)
So if thats the ups whats the down?
Well, I decided to make a fruit loaf...with a marzipan swirl.
It tastes great but it loooooks like something from the swamp! I called it the glop monster.
It would have been great IF I had have made it into two smaller loaves, but after I shaped it,
it just grew........
Its hanging OVER the bakers stone here, and I thought I'd have a right horrid mess! Isnt it ugly?
It had good oven spring, (hence growing MORE)
Its not the most aesthetic loaf, but it sure did taste good :)
I soaked the fruit in apple juice and mixed spice. I used currants and cranberries and the treacle loaf dough.
Next in like is more ciabatta, more treacle loaf (hopefully 100% WW version) some bagels perhaps and BBA Multi-grain bread.
Keep an eye out, as I seem to be enjoying my picture posts :D
