Official Plusnet Bakers' Thread

Any fellow PN-ers on here with a love of baking?
I'm in a bit of a sourdough mode at the moment - got a mere 35kg of flour that I have accumulated and needs using up Cheesy

Yes.
Experience; is something you gain, just after you needed it most.

When faced with two choices, simply toss a coin. It works not because it settles the question for you. But because in that brief moment while the coin is in the air. You suddenly know what you are hoping for.

I bake my own bread / rolls etc when I have the time - I use fresh yeast and always have a fresh bit in the fridge.
I also do my own bread pizza bases. I've done croissants and various other bready things with good success Smiley

Oooo!!  one of my favourite language gripes, you provided the correct spelling for skon, scone is pronounced scone as in stone Roll eyes
The residents of the swish Buckinghamshire town of Beaconsfield persist in pronouncing it Bekonsfield. If you go to the top of one those hills around the country at certain times of national celebration you set fire to a beacon, not a bekon.
Edit: There is a model village there called Bekonscot though.
So there!!

I've no wish to hijack AndyH's delicious thread, but I must ask which part Britain Portsmouth (Hants) is Norf of apart from the Isle of Wight Huh

Re: Official Plusnet Bakers' Thread

Here's a tip...anyone wanting fresh yeast - get it from Tesco (have to ask at the Bakery) for 1p Smiley
Tomorrow's baking:
Sourdough Focaccia - might experiment a bit and do a rhubarb focaccia and normal mediterranean mix focaccia
Pain au levain - one of my favourites

I get it free from my Tesco as they haven't cottoned on that there is a SKU and barcode for it Wink
Technically they should "sell" it as it keeps track of the stock but also from a legal perspective with a use by date and a "do not consume raw" warning.

Oh and Sainsburys will sell it to you for aroud 25p for 50g (I think that is what they used to charge me for it).
Morrisons refused point blank to let me have any even though I used to live next door to the woman in the bakery lol.

Re: Official Plusnet Bakers' Thread

About the only baking I have done in recent times has been a rhubarb or apple crumble....although I always knew it as Rhubarb or Apple Cracknell.
Not sure about this supporting link though http://www.food.com/recipe/apple-crumble-known-as-apple-cracknell-from-sussex-uk-387084
