Bread of the weekend.....

SallyBR1's picture

the BBA Challenge goes on, and on...

this weekend is a bread I've wanted to make for a long time: potato rosemary bread

I have high hopes for it, let's cross our virtual fingers!

will report back, it is now in the final 2 hours initial rise, 3 more hours until it's baked.....

Potato rosemary bread sounds delightful, Sally.

I left out the word bread. Sad.

If that's the case, she better just munch on rosemary... :-)

Now Sally, THAT would not be appetizing. It surely would cut calories, however, and would taste so bad I'd likely not want anything else, either. Now that I think of it, you may have found a new diet plan. Shall we try to market it together? lol

Plus, one can make it romantic - a couple munching on rosemary branches from opposite sides, meeting halfway through....

what a gorgeous sight! :-)

You are a true romantic, Sally. So is DH, but I fear the rosemary munching thing isn't going to catch on. It would taste so disgusting, that by the time you met in the middle, you'd both be sick. lol

Great bread.... once more I did not knead the dough in the KA, just adapted Dan Lepard's method of minimal folding over a period of time. I did three foldings, at 20 min, 1h and 1.5hs

the potato gives this crumb a very creamy texture, completely different from a levain bread. Excellent, very light, airy, rosemaryish...

That is gorgeous! Makes the simple ham sandwich a work of art.:)


Any chance of posting the recipe?

SallyBR1's picture

I found the recipe in the net, making my life a lot easier... :-)

I halved the recipe - and baked with steam, by covering the dough with an inverted roaster

looking at the breads baked ahead of me in the challenge, I have to say I prefer the way the crust gets once you bake it this way. I will mention it when I blog about it.

Thank you Sally, that looks like a recipe I can make.:)

Great bread! I like rosemary in lots of baked goods...and potato.

The bread certainly is worthy of your counter. :)

Too bad it goes to the thighs afterwards

oh, well - there is always plyometrics to the rescue, which I already did today, to prepare for the carbs to come :-)

If I did that crazy exercise thing you do, there would be no more Marcia. I'd be a goner for sure. Do you know the expression, "a goner"? Seldom used now, but you hear it in old movies and such. Means dead, just in case. ;-)

SallyBR1's picture

I know that one. And loner.... well, I guess I could go on, but those might be enough

(I am on a roll today, sorry, must be all that rosemary in the bread)

Are you on a rosemary roll? ;-)

All this gorgeous bread! And you are still just a slip of a girl--your exercise regime must be working.

Marcia's picture

Sally's exercise regime would kill a lesser mortal. I speak, of course, as a lesser mortal. :(

I used to make a similar bread, pre-Celiac, and it was my all time favourite bread.

I do like rosemary with potatoes, but it's best for me to leave out the wheat, anyway.

Did you make a cracker for your holiday carrots or will you not eat them yourself?

A few weeks ago I had the family over for a Sunday evening Italian meal and made rolls using that recipe. Wonderful! Also makes a TDF pizza crust.

I regret I did not make a double batch, but it's ok, I might make it again soon enough

next on the list is Pugliese, which I am also looking forward to.
