Apple and Salted Caramel Focaccia

It's focaccia, but not as we know it.

Fruity Breakfast Loaf

We do like a fruity loaf. I made up this recipe on the hoof but it worked out just right for Sunday breakfast.

Although there is generally a lot of baking on Things{we}make I am lucky that it is a joint venture and that Ed understands my need to show you my bagels. I like that he knows how to make a good-looking filling of pastrami, pea shoots and horseradish. It is most important that he will fill […]

Spiral Loaf

This months Fresh From The Oven challenge was to share our favourite savoury bread recipe. ‘Something for picnics, summer sandwiches or barbecues.’ I must admit, the focaccia I often make for those sort of affairs starts as a packet of ciabatta mix. It gets punched and pounded and doused with herby olive oil and sundried […]

Hot Crosses and Big Buns

"24 BUNS! What am I going to do with 24 buns?" I asked myself. I didn't know the answer so I decided to make 8 chunky buns and a huge loaf sized one.

Layer Bread

I baked these layered rolls, based on a recipe from Richard Bertinet’s ‘Dough’ this morning. We had them for lunch, fresh from the oven, with mozzarella, avocado, tomatoes, pesto and rocket. They are very easy to make as there is no shaping, just some random cutting and stacking. I made two batches of dough to […]

Khrushchev Dough

January’s Fresh From The Oven Challenge is Khrushchev Dough. Apparently this butter rich dough was the favourite bread recipe of the Russian leader Nikita Khrushchev. It was left up to us to decide how to shape and fill the bread. I rolled and stuffed some like Serbian Kiflice, tiny stuffed cheese rolls. I made one third with […]

The best way to introduce this post is to let the host of the November Fresh From The Oven Challenge tell you herself: Hi! I’m Maja (pronounced Maya) alias mamajac from Cooks and Bakes, I live in Belgrade, Serbia. I joined FFTO a year ago, and now I’m proud to host the November challenge. I decided […]

If Wendy from Quirky Cookies wasn’t so lovely I would really be quite cross with her at the moment. Because I really don’t need this temptation. A sweet, doughy, baked delicious thing that I will now end up cooking regularly when really I should be doing other things. A thing that (as has been proven) […]

It occured to me that some of you may be getting bored of my monthly bread baking posts for Fresh From the Oven. So I will try to keep it brief and breezy but I won’t be offended if you don’t look at it. Stop looking. You don’t need to see this. Are you still here? […]

Brioche

August 28, 2010

12

Here is the result of August’s Fresh From The Oven baking challenge: Brioche. As the recipe in The River Cottage Bread Guide says it is a very wet dough. It’s a real ‘stir it with a wooden spoon’ job rather than ‘knead it on the worktop.’ Eventually with the addition of a good handful of […]

Not Nut Bread

This months Fresh From The Oven bread baking challenge was for a Wholemeal Walnut Bread. I have a confession. I don’t like walnuts. That’s not strictly true. I remember eating a whole bowl full of walnuts whilst staying in a farmhouse in France many years ago. They were straight from the tree outside and we had […]

Pizza…Doh

Thanks go to Lauren from Coffee Muffins blog who chose May’s Fresh From The Oven Challenge. It’s a Pizza Napoletana recipe from Peter Reinhart’s ‘The Bread Baker’s Apprentice’. You need to plan ahead a little for this one as you make the dough the day before you need it. Now I am not usually sure […]

Croissants

I only just got these made in time for the April Bake off for ‘Fresh From The Oven’. This month it was chosen by Corrie from Hot Potato Blog. I was glad it was another recipe from the River Cottage Bread Handbook as I like their recipes and find the book easy to follow, albeit […]

Estonian Kringel – Fresh From The Oven

March 27, 2010

I was really pleased that this was the bread chosen by Jo from Jo’s Kitchen for March’s Fresh From The Oven Baking Challenge. It’s a fabulous looking loaf even before it gets its chocolate topping. In fact when I make it again I am going to add cinnamon to the sugar and leave out the […]

No Knead Bread V2.0

February 27, 2010

I have made this bread almost every week. It gives you a sturdy, crusty loaf, with an almost ciabatta like airiness inside. It is the only loaf I know that crackles as it cools; it's that crusty.

It’s January. As I write this we are only 9 days into the month and I have already completed this month’s baking challenge for Fresh From The Oven. I’m a good girl I am. I was nervous about starting this challenge it as it look quite complicated but as Eddie Izzard once said you should go towards […]

Last Minuten Stollen

December 28, 2009

This month’s “Fresh From The Oven” challenge was to make a Stollen. Now I have to admit to reservations about this one. Not least that I don’t like marzipan, but I also knew things would be quite hectic on the run up to Christmas and that I would not have chance to get it done. […]

The Fresh From The Oven (FFTO) Challenge for November was set by ‘Goodshoeday” from with knife and fork blog. It is a White Tin Loaf that uses Dan Lepard’s kneading method and has milk in the recipe to keep it soft and slightly sweet. It was quite a nice challenge to have as although the bread […]
