White Batter Bread
This recipe makes 1 large loaf or divide in half 2 for smaller loaves. Reduce baking time if making smaller loaves.
4 c. White Bread Making Flour
2 t. salt
1 t. sugar
1 pkt. yeast
1 t. bread enhancer (optional but will improve cell structure if used)
1 T. oil or softened unsalted butter
2 c. warm water
Add the water sugar and yeast to a small bowl and stir until dissolved. Place half the flour in a large bowl and add the remaining dry ingredients and whisk together to ensure an even distribution. Add yeast mixture and oil to the flour and mix well for 3 minutes. If hand mixing mix for 5 minutes. Add remaining flour and mix for another 3 minutes (5 minutes if by hand). The mix should have the consistency of a thick batter. Cover the bowl with plastic and put in a warm place until the batter has doubled in size, approximately 30-60 minutes. Knock the mix down by stirring with a spoon and then pour into a large well greased baking tin. Cover the tin with plastic and place in a warm place until the batter has again doubled in size. While the batter is rising pre-heat the oven to 425. Once the batter has doubled, place it in the center of the hot oven and bake for 35 to 40 minutes. When bread is done, the loaf will sound hollow when thumped. Turn the loaf out onto a wire rack and allow to cool.

PostSubject: Rosemary Peasant Bread   Tue Jul 05, 2011 1:26 am

Rosemary Peasant Bread
1 packet dry yeast (or 2 1/2 tsp)
2 c. warm water
1 T. sugar
2 tsp salt
4 c. flour
1-2 tsp. fresh Rosemary plus more for topping
Olive Oil, Corn meal, Melted butter and salt
Dissolve yeast in the warm water and sugar. Add flour, salt, and 1-2 tsp Rosemary and stir until blended, do not knead!! Cover and let rise for 1 hour or until double in size. If using a bread mixer, leave the dough right in the mixing bowl with the lid on to rise. Remove dough; it will be sticky. Put oil on your hands for shaping the dough. Shape into 2 rounds on a cookie sheet lightly coated in oil and sprinkled with corn meal or shape on your Silpat. Cover with plastic wrap sprayed with Pam. Let it rise another hour. Brush each round with melted butter; lightly sprinkle with more Rosemary and kosher salt. Bake at 425 for 10 minutes, then 375 for 15 minutes more. Cool slightly, then cut into slices or tear chunks apart and dip in a bowl of olive oil and balsamic vinegar. For lower elevations add 1 c. additional flour.

PostSubject: Herb Batter Bread   Tue Jul 05, 2011 1:27 am

Herb Batter Bread
2 pkgs. active dry yeast (2 t.)
2 c. very warm water
3 T. sugar
1 T. salt
2 T. shortening
1/2 t. each; dried oregano, dried thyme, dried basil (If you're using fresh herbs, the equivalency ratio is about a teaspoon of dry to a tablespoon of fresh. The flavor is more concentrated in the dry so you need more fresh)
4-5 c all-purpose flour
Sprinkle yeast over warm water in mixing bowl; stir until dissolved. Stir in sugar, shortening, herbs, 2 c. flour and salt. Beat about 3-4 minutes or until batter falls in "sheets" from the spoon. Beat in enough remaining flour to make stiff batter. Cover, let rise in a warm place, free from draft, until doubled in bulk, about 40 min. Stir down; turn into greased 9x5x3" loaf pan. Let rise about 20 minutes. Bake at 375 for 30-40 minutes. Remove from pan and cool before slicing. You can make this in your bread mixer if desired.
