On the 19th May we had another Bring and Bake event which went even better than last time. After another layer of clay was added to the oven, we were ready to bake not just bread, but also pizza! In case you missed the event, have a look at these recipes:
You will need 1 package of dried yeast, 2 cups of warm water, 3 tablespoons of sugar, 2 tablespoons of sunflower oil, 1 teaspoon of salt and 6 cups of all purpose flour. In a small bowl mix the sugar, yeast, a few spoons of the flower as well as 2 tablespoons of water. Mix, and let it grow while you mix the salt with the flower in a large mixing bowl. After the yeast mixture doubled in size, mix it with the flour and slowly add water while you are mixing with a wooden spoon. When the composition gets thick, start mixing by hand and then leave the dough in a warm place to grow. After the dough doubled in size, give it the shape you want and bake it but remember, this can be also used as a pizza dough recipe. In case you want to make a pizza, flatten the dough and add the toppings you like. Then, bake at 190 degrees Celsius for 30 to 35 minutes.
To make beer bread you will need 1 can of beer or 1 bottle of beer, 3 cups of self raising flour, 3 table spoons of white sugar and a pinch of salt. Start by mixing the flour, salt and sugar in a mixing bowl, then slowly start adding the beer while you continuously stir with a wooden spoon. After you poured all the beer, start mixing everything using your hands. Put the dough into a tray and then bake it at 175 degrees Celsius for 60 minutes.
You will need 1 medium potato, 1 and 1/2 cups of water, 2 tablespoons of butter, 2 tablespoons of sugar and 2 of salt, 2 packets of dry yeast, 2 tablespoons of shortening and around 6 or 7 cups of all purpose flour. Start by washing, peeling and cutting the potato (into cubes) and boil it until tender. Store half of the water in a mug and mash the potato in the other half. Add east in the remaining warm water (but not hot, that will kill the yeast). Add the mashed potatoes, 2 cups of flour, salt, shortening and sugar and beat with an electric mixer for a few minutes. Then, slowly add the leftover flour while mixing by hand until the dough becomes elastic. Leave it in a warm place for an hour (or until it doubles in size), then mix again and place in the oven or into trays and bake for 45 minutes at 190 degrees.
The next Bring & Bake event will take place on the 22nd June -> https://www.facebook.com/events/1691465717773510/ . We are looking forward to seeing you there!
