Tsoureki – Greek Easter Bread
Tsoureki, greek easter bread, uses some very unusual ingredients. One is mahlap, the ground up kernels of a mediterranean cherry variety. The other is mastic, a resin that gets harvested on the Greek island of Chios. Those two ingredients are responsible for the very unique taste of the Tsoureki.
Chicken Chili Pie
I had pizza planned, but like so often things turned out a bit different.
Khorasan and Emmer Toast
Have you ever baked with ancient grains? Khorasan, emmer, einkorn and spelt all bring some challenges with them, but with this super easy recipe, you can bake a fluffy toast or sandwich bread.
English Muffin Bread
English muffins made in a cast iron pan are quite common knowledge. But making them in bread form was new to me. The bread turned out delicious and makes fantastic toast!
I have another “use what you have” recipe for you. This time, it results in hoagies, the ultimate sandwich buns.
We spawned a new sourdough yesterday, now let’s use it to bake a fluffy and healthy bread with 4 different grains.
Baguettes with a touch of rye
Join me in my kitchen and let’s bake baguettes together. These have a little bit of rye added for a flavor boost and you’ll even see shaping and scoring videos.
Lemon Curd and Poppy Seed Rolls
Do you like cinnamon rolls? I have something even better: lemon poppyseed rolls: a sweet dough filled with lemon curd and poppyseeds, super rich and super zingy.
Sweet Potato Burger Buns
It’s sweet potato season and past time for another burger bun recipe. These ones are soft and fluffy, but sturdy enough to hold a generous, juicy filling without disintegrating. They’re my favorite at the moment.
