3 gmas gone nuts!
We 3 gmas baked walnut breads this Sunday. We tossed out the topic and we all went different ways with it... Barb, who never makes only one bread... go getter that she is... made Reinhart's Sandwich bread, plus 2 tartine loaves, one with walnuts and one without.
These are the Reinhart's, a basic Sandwich loaf. Looks like it will do the job well. Nice crumb, for great sandwiches.
This is the walnut half of Barb's Tartine dough.
The left boule, plain... right, walnut bread. And here is the beautiful walnut crumb.
Now, you have already peeked at Helen's loaves as they are the lead-in picture, because they are so beautiful!
Here is Helen's dough, her bread is Cranbury Walnut... just like the bread in our favorite "Central Market" in Ft. Worth... I am betting her's tastes better than theirs.
Ready for the proofing.
Aren't these lovely ... yep, they are.
Look at all those cranberries in there! YUMMMY!
My dough, looks really oily from turning it over in the bowl... rose really fast to the doubled stage... I had to wrap my loaves in foil in order to get the inside temp to be 200 without overbrowing the crust.
I think they turned out great, and the taste is awesome... mine are Mission Fig and Walnut...
This bread made great toast this morning... and I can only imagine how heavenly French Toast will be...
Again, 3 gmas... one main idea and 3 different takes on it.... We have a great time finding out what each of us brings to the table!!! Literally!
Another great day, great bake and great time with my sisters!
Barb, Helen, and Diane
