T: man, Amanda, you always hook up awesome stuffed bread. Tonight was no exception.
A: you are too kind mista tyler. the loaves were tasty tonight although one of them looked quite mangled after I fought with the dough while stuffing it.
T: I didn’t notice while I was eating it, although I did note your frustration while making the bread. Anywho, it was awesome. Let me see… what did Barbara say.. “it’s just wrong how good this is.”
A: hehehe i do believe that’ s what she said. Breads are just so damned good, its really hard to make a bad one. people just think they are too complicated to try. not really.
T: They seem pretty involved to me. The air temperature has to be a certain way, the yeast has to do this that and the other thing, if you mess up at any point you will end up with something resembling a stone. That’s a bit much for me. I think I’d be buying a bread maker.
Loaves of stuffed bread
A: hehehe i have rarely seen bread end up looking like a stone (except the second time i made biscuits from scratch and added like two tablespoons of both baking powder and soda, cause I had lost the recipe and thought i would just try it out. – those were bad).
T: Yeah, heheh, we couldn’t even bring ourselves to feed them to the ducks. Oh, well, you’ve made nothing but killer biscuits since then.
A: hehehe thank goodness I started using whitelilly self-rising flour. the baking powder and soda are already added…they make it pretty much fool proof.
T: cool. is whitelily available at most grocery stores?
A: definatley in the south it is, but i’m not sure if i’ve seen it around here. it really is the secret to making good biscuits because it’s got a lower level of protein than other all-purpose flours do. thus the biscuits are less dense and more fluffy. wooo hooo.. fluffy biscuits. Maybe they have whitelily at specialty stores here in san diego.
T: that’s crazy. yeah, fluffy biscuits are the bomb diggity, yo. … back to tonight’s bread. I give it a 4.4/5. It may seem like a low score compared to a lot of the scores I give out, but I’m leaving room for other breads to conquer it. As good as this bread was some of your other breads have had more enchanting ingredient combos.
A: true dat. I give the breads a 4.236/5, they were good. i could have eaten both loaves (except i wasn’t that hungry) but it’s hard to give bread a high rating unless it is really the ultimate, and like you said, there is definately room for improvement.
T: does that mean we will be eating more bread in the not-to-distant future?
A: perhaps it does, my dear, perhaps it does. 😉
T: oh, cakes and pies, cakes and pies 😀
A: hehehe silly. until next time…
