Been feverly reading this one holy book lately. At least it’s holy to my fellow baker who borrowed it for me. He is quite fresh out of school himself, and having done his baker education in the South of Germany, he’s learned somethings different. And he seems to consider me smart (or then I just want to read it so), so he’s given me these books to check out. And they are nice, quite simple German as well. And pictures always say so much, too.
And I saw a picture. Of a toast bread, different toast bread methods. Wanted to try out the twist one right away. Attached my own extra twist to it with the sesame seeds. It’s delicious how one finds yummy seeds from inside, too. Worked with quite a dry dough, 250g milk to 450g flour. Used 14g of fresh yeast (that’s what I happened to have), 20g of sugar, 10g of salt (bit too much ’cause…) and 20g of liquid butter (…butter was so salty too). It’s so soft, so white. Could almost call it a toast bread, though I’m missing all the flour and dough improvers, which would make it stay good long enough for it to be called toast bread. Ah, but it’s almost gone, so who needs that now.
Made a cheesecake from the book as well. A bit too soft, too moist. Should use less milk, or then tougher quark. Needs a bit of improving for my liking. Not that I wouldn’t like it, just not as perfect as I’d like. I’ve made better ones, never a perfect one, yet.
