family of bakers

I think my parents might be jealous of Matt’s bread baking.

This morning I got an email with a picture of their bread escapade.

Jamie Oliver’s courgette bread (zucchini bread)

It looks rather wonderful and they insist it certainly is. Might have to convince Matt to bake me one.

It uses Jamie’s basic bread recipe and then replaces about 1/2 of the water with grated courgette. Add in crumbly goats cheese and it sounds like a winner to me.


there are worse things…

than having a husband who bakes bread.

This was my breakfast:

Pain de Campagne with a pâte fermentêe starter. A thin couronne and a fendu shape. 7 hours.

Jealous much?

Bread, bread and a bit more bread.

The results for the Hungarian Cheese Bread were mixed. It apparently had similarities to the original product but wasn’t spot on. It was however, disgustingly delicious, considering just how much cheese and butter went into it. Urgh. It honestly made me consider upping my vegetarian-who-eats-sushi grade to vegan-who-eats-sushi (because, let’s face it, I’m not giving up sushi). Anyway, I will be trying again, but I’m going to wait a little while and let my thighs work off this loaf.

Hungarian Cheese Bread - take one

I did also make some more rolls however. This time I made the decision  stick entirely to the KitchenAid recipe, which I regret. Far, far too salty. I’ll be sure to cut that out next time. But still, making bread and having it actually rise and puff and golden, is beyond satisfying!

I am currently attempting to satisfy Matt’s craving for a type of cheese riddled bread he used to eat whilst living in Hungry. I found a few badly translated recipes online and have put something together. It’s currently in the oven. I have no idea how this is going to turn out.

Where Am I?
