Teddy Bread

What is Teddy Bread? Well, it is Tiger Bread… renamed recently in the UK by one supermarket chain as Giraffe Bread. Me, I think it looks more like Bengal Cat Bread, so I am calling mine after my Marbled Bengal, Teddy.

I made my basic 500g white flour bread, using 3 tablespoons of sesame oil in place of the usual fat content. I set the bread to rise while I took my camera for a walk. When I came back, it was well-risen. Perhaps too  much so, but it was a good walk and I enjoyed it, so I don’t care.

After rising, knocking back and shaping, the bread was coated in a paste mix:

I’m not sure how thickly it is meant to be applied – and aren’t I a messy worker?

Transferring the bread from its makeshift peel to the dish proved difficult – due entirely, I think, to my messy application of the tiger paste. The dough went in a little lop-sided but the results look OK to me.

I worried that the paste would make the loaf stick to the unseasoned dish but all was well

A Month in France: Nothing is Lost

I am lagging on the Month in the Country prompts, and lagging badly at that. I have a list of prompts t be caught up on and I shall be working my way through them here, or at Scattered Thoughts depending on where the post most naturally sits. I have elected to tackle the prompts not in date order necessarily but to seize upon prompts that offer me space in which to write down the things that I am feeling the need to say. Even if I need to crowbar it in. The thing is, I am going to continue to be short of time and space in which to write and so a two-for-one is useful and I hope to do as many of those as I can. Seems like a plan? … Continue readingA Month in France: Nothing is Lost
