Pan Bianco

Made this today, 

  • 360g strong white bread flour
  • 8g instant yeast
  • 5g salt
  • 1 large egg
  • 130g lukewarm milk
  • 70g lukewarm water
  • 35g olive oil

  • Filling:

    100g grated Pecorino
  • 120g oil-packed sun-dried tomatoes
  • 4 cloves of garlic minced
  • 25g chopped basil, rosemary, flat leaf parsley

Pretty much just mix the lot together to make a dough and kneed for 10 minutes,  stick it in an oiled bowl and leave to double in size.  Pat it out to be 2cm thick and spread everything on top.  Roll it up and tighten the ends. Now slice the log length ways and make a figure of eight.  sprinkle with more cheese and olive oil. Prove again for 50 minutes. Pre heat the oven to 175c and bake for 20 minutes, remove from oven and put some foil over the top to stop it going dark.  Bake for another 15-20 minutes.

thanks all, been offline for a few days as my broadband is getting an upgrade.  

Looking at making a new one tomorrow with an extra egg yolk and 25g of butter added.

The filling will be made of a layer of creme pat with dark chocolate chips.  We'll see how it turns out :)

I thought that you were going to give us  review of Chris Bianco's bakery and lunch place here in Phoenix.  His brother is the baker there and they make all the bread for the restaurants and pizza places.

This bread is way to nice for Pane Bianco!

Happy baking
