Doughs

Artisan Bread in 5 Minutes a Day by Jeff Hertzberg and Zoë François or their website

  • Enriched doughs – I use either the challah or brioche recipe
  • Marble rye – the New Healthy Bread in 5 minutes a day.
    • I used the homemade caramel color instead for the pumpernickel dough. Am going to try a teaspoon of coffee or unsweetened cocoa next time
    • I did not use the vital wheat gluten.
    • Rolled the 2 doughs flat. Stacked them on top of each other and rolled together and made an oval.
    • I recommend not baking the bread until the next day. It was much more flavorful after a week in the fridge.
    • I recommend letting it rise longer than the 90 minutes.
    • Otherwise I baked it according to the rye recipe.

  • Sesame Pan Bread 芝麻大餅 Goes great with the cumin lamb. http://tastynomz.blogspot.com/2010/07/sesame-scallion-bread-zhi-ma-da-bing.html
  • Big Bun 大包 recipe.
    • I used this one as the base http://thewanderingeater.com/2013/11/23/pork-dai-bao-big-bun-%E5%A4%A7%E5%8C%85/
    • However, there is a typo in the amount of water. It should read 2 1/3 cups of water. Not 1 1/3 cup. Doing the conversion to volume the recipe calls for about 9-10 cups of mixed flours total. The usual proportion is about a 3 to 1 ratio of flour to water for these types of doughs. The butter I added works about about 7 tablespoons. 8 tablespoons of butter is half a cup, so that would bring the liquid up to about 3 cups.
    • Also, the dough is enough for 24 buns, not the 32 as the filling quantities indicates. Not unless the sausage the author uses is lot shorter than standard commercial packages. I cut the sausage into quarters the first time I made them.
    • This is my restating and correction of the dough proportions.
