Notes about Recipes in this book

  • Yeasted buns with sweet cheese and fruit

    • Zosia on January 04, 2024

      These were light and fluffy and delicious. I made six (~100g dough) but I prefer a smaller ratio of bun to topping so I will make 8 next time and make only half the crumb topping recipe as there was quite a bit left. I added 1/2 tsp salt to the dough, used half the amount of yeast (SAF gold) and made the cheese topping with twarog. While they were best on baking day, they were stll very good on subsequent days reheated in the microwave.

  • Polish-French toast with roasted plums

    • Zosia on January 04, 2024

      I was inspired to make this by some Italian plums I had in the freezer that needed to be used. The egg mixture wasn't very different from my usual recipe but the inclusion of heavy cream and use of egg-rich bread seemed to make it quite special and the rather medicore plums were completely transformed by roasting. This will be repeated.
