Notes about Recipes in this book

  • Coarse salt and rosemary focaccia

    • Astrid5555 on July 28, 2016

      This is a simple yet delicious focaccia recipe. Made in my standmixer instead of by hand due to time constraints, works well! Very wet dough.

  • White dough

    • Astrid5555 on May 05, 2016

      Excellent base recipe for a lot of other delicious breads in this book.

  • Fougasse

    • Astrid5555 on October 01, 2016

      These are made from RB's simple "White dough" and are easy to make. They look quite impressive once you have mastered the shaping and cutting. Great for dinner parties because you can parbake them in advance and finish them innthe oven right on time once needed.

  • Layered rolls

    • Astrid5555 on December 31, 2013

      Super simple and fun to make. Next time would make them smaller by using small cookie cutters. Used half a recipe of white dough, as I had leftovers from the Olive, herb and Romano sticks.

  • Olive, herb, and Romano sticks

    • Astrid5555 on January 01, 2014

      Looks impressive, tastes great - a real winner!

  • Doughnuts

    • Astrid5555 on October 08, 2016

      These are quick and easy to make and delicious! Made without filling and coated only with cinnamon sugar. Kids could not get enough of them!

  • Brown rolls

    • Delys77 on February 25, 2013

      There are about 62% whole what can be completed in just a few hours of proofing without any fermentation (Biga). The result is quite light, with very good flavour an excellent texture. The only challenge was that they took closer to 13 minutes to brown. Perhaps next time I will use the convection function.
