|The Food Mixer and Processor in all their glory|
Well since we had the equipment it was essential we then used them so over the weekend we did some baking and in the couple of posts you will be able to see the outcome.
The first thing we (that's hubby and me) made was some Cheese and Onion Bread and boy was it scrumptious. If you want to try them out see the recipe below.
550g (20 oz) Strong White Flour
2 tsp English Mustard
1 Onion (red or white)
300g (11 oz) Strong Cheddar Cheese
300ml (10 fl oz) Tepid /warm water
2tsp Fast Acting Yeast.
1 tsp Oil
|The assembled ingredients|
First put salt flour and mustard in a bowl then added the onion and cheese both of which have been cut into cubes.Mix them gently together
The mustard onions and cheese mixed together
Add yeast one egg and water into a jug and whisk them together until smooth .
Then add the wet ingredients to the dry ingredients and mix with the dough hook on the mixer until a smooth soft dough is created.
Cover the bowl with a cloth and allow the mixture to rest and prove for about 10 minutes.
After 10 minutes turn out the dough onto an oiled tray/worktop and kneed for about 10 seconds.Then return the dough to the bowl and allow to stand for 1 hour this allows the bread to prove.
After 1 hour turn dough our onto a tray and divide it into 6 - 8 equal pieces. Shape into long roll/sausage shapes and place these onto a lined baking tray.
Cover and leave until the rolls have about doubled in size.
Whilst rolls are proving pre-heat oven to 220 C or gas Mark 7
Once rolls have risen brush with beaten egg and pepper them before placing in the oven to cook for about 20 minutes or until golden brown
