default Unusual bread recipes

Post by Dandelion on 26th February 2011, 2:54 pm

Mr D asks if anyone has any unusual bread recipes they would like to share (he's in a bread making mood!) He especially says does anyone know if you can put parsnips into bread?

Well, I would think if you treated them like potato in bread recipes, why not? ie mashed or cooked and grated....

How much poppy seeds do you add to that, or is it just sprinkled on op?

I quite like the seeds on top of bread, rather than in it - I prefer the nutty roasted taste to the more earthy flavour you get if they are baked in.

I've been having trouble with my breadmaker recently - loaves sinking in the middle and having a cake-like texture. I presumed it was the flour - last time I had this problem it was, and because I normally use Waitrose home brand, you don't really know where they source it from. So I've switched flour, but at the same time I noticed that my scales were broken - so although today's loaf was better, I don't knoe whether it was the flour or the scales !

heres another one to try its called puffballs and it is a recipe handed down
from my mums french grandfather.

take some self raising flour and half fill a 2 litre measuring jug
put one egg in and mix together
add water a little at a time until you have made a stiff mixture
(if the mixture becomes too sloppy just add more flower)
take a frying pan and heat some oil does not matter which kind you use
once the pan is quite hot take a dessert spoon and take some mixture
place in the pan you may also need a knife to get it off the spoon
you can fill the pan up as long as you have room in between them
you may have to put a little more oil in for time to time
make sure you fry on all sides until they have a golden brown colour
they will increase in size .they are good with marmite (yeast extract) or jam
peanut butter or anything else you may like to try
