We had a breakthrough with bread today. Yippee ! This time used a whole sachet of yeast for the basic bread recipe which is the tip we picked up from the Catherine at the thermomix course. And instead of using wheat grains, just substituted wholemeal flour. I think there’s about three teaspoons of yeast in one sachet and the recipe requires only 2 tsp so there was always a little leftover previously. This time with more yeast, proving was only 30 minutes as per recipe. And the second prove after the buns are shaped was 20 minutes as per recipe. Miss 14 shaped the buns using tips from course. The kids loved making the hedgehog buns. Buns cooked in 15 minutes at 200c. Above pic is hot out of the oven. Nothing like having the smell of baking bread in the house.
Lunch was rice noodles with chicken and courgettes. Thermomix chicken stock used as a soup base and unfortunately just used the last spoonful from the jar. It has lasted us almost three months. So will be making more tomorrow. Miss 8 says it’s her favourite soup in the world! What a compliment.
