Garlic Mushroom & Manchego Baked Egg Bread Boats

Garlic mushroom & manchego cheese baked egg bread boats Something a little different from me today; I have mentioned before on the blog that I am a boring breakfaster and generally just eat cereal or porridge; occasionally I make an effort to have something a bit more interesting, though what usually happens is that I will have my cereal for breakfast then have a second breakfast for lunch…This is mainly because I tend to wake up hungry and just want to EAT, I don’t want to have to cook first… (more…)

Marbled Rye Bread

Marbled rye bread recipe - Domestic Gothess I have managed to end up with five bags of rye flour to get through so expect to see quite a few recipes with rye in coming up! Obviously rye bread is the first thing that comes to mind when you think of things made with rye, and I came across a picture on Pinterest of a beautifully marbled rye bread, half light and half dark coloured; I can’t resist a beautiful bread so I knew that I had to give it a try, the result was both extremely attractive and delicious.

Hokkaido Milk Bread

Hokkaido milk bread, the softest, fluffiest bread you will ever eat - Domestic GothessYou know how I said in my last bread post that I’d found a new favourite bread? I was wrong. Or at least, I’ve found a new new favourite bread. This, this is the bread to end all other breads, the kind of bread that dreams are made of…Hokkaido milk bread is quite simply the fluffiest, softest, lightest, most pillowy cloud of deliciousness I have ever eaten. It’s better than brioche…there, I said it. I’m not going to kid you, it’s not the easiest or the quickest bread to make (that’s not to say it’s difficult), but boy is it worth the effort; in fact, I thoroughly recommend that you double the recipe and make two loaves in one go, it’s not really that much extra work and you Will. Not. Regret. It. (more…)

Yafawi Sfeeha – Palestinian Cheese Buns

The July Daring Bakers’ Challenge was brought to us by Manal from Manal’s Bites. She introduced us to an authentic Palestinian dish from Jaffa that is served as a main meal along with a bowl of soup or a salad. The “Yafawi Sfeeha” or also known as “Milwayeh” which means twisted, is crispy yet tender and full of flavor.

Yafawi sfeeha - Palestinian halloumi cheese buns - Domestic GothessI have had a truly terrible week, and am in somewhat of a foul mood at the moment, so I apologise if I don’t really feel like talking about food today and this post gets a bit ranty… Skip straight to the recipe if you like! We were supposed to be going on holiday today to Wacken festival in Germany, everything was booked and paid for (and non-refundable…); but we are unable to go because the British passport office are the biggest bunch of unhelpful incompetents I have ever encountered.

Muesli Bread

Muesli bread, the perfect healthy, filling breakfast - Domestic GothessI think I may have found a new favourite bread; this muesli bread is hearty, satisfying, delicious and it’s healthy! It is also a great way to use up some of that half eaten packet of muesli forgotten about at the back of the cupboard for 6+ months… (just me?). It stays soft for a good few days in a airtight container and makes fantastic toast; I’ve been enjoying it for breakfast slathered with butter and jam. The flavour is slightly sweet from the dried fruit and a little maple syrup and there’s a hint of warm cinnamon. Because it is full of oats, fruit and nuts it is very filling, so it makes a great breakfast or snack. (more…)

Vegetarian Red Lentil Koftas With Homemade Flatbreads & Harissa Yoghurt Sauce

Vegetarian red lentil koftas with flatbreads & harissa youghurt sauce - Domestic GothessNow that the weather has warmed up a little and the evenings are lighter I have been craving summery food and meals outside, problem being that my garden is an absolute state…completely overgrown and chock full of weeds. Even my poor dog struggles to get to the bottom of the garden; it is going to take some serious, backbreaking work to get it into any kind of fit state for enjoying a meal in (and I don’t even have any outdoor furniture…). If I did have a nice garden to eat in though, these vegetarian red lentil koftas with flatbreads and harissa yoghurt are exactly the kind of thing I would make. They are the perfect summer sharing food, just lay everything out on the table and let people pile up their own flatbreads. (more…)

Pain A La Crème – Double Cream Bread Rolls

Pain au crème - double cream bread rolls - Domestic Gothess I had a bit of leftover cream sitting in the fridge about to pass it’s use by date and couldn’t for the life of me think what to do with it; I had been planning on baking some pain au lait and then I had a thought – why not use cream in place of the milk? I wasn’t entirely sure how well it would work, whether the cream would make the bread too heavy, but I gave it a go regardless and was incredibly pleased by the result. (more…)

Mini Chocolate Stuffed Vanilla Bean Brioche À Tête

Mini chocolate stuffed vanilla bean brioche a tete - Domestic Gothess I think that brioche has got to be just about my favourite thing to come out of France…I’m not talking about the mass-produced stuff that you get in supermarkets that has the texture (and flavour…) of cotton wool; I’m talking about proper brioche, heavily enriched with butter and eggs and yet seemingly impossibly light. (more…)

Sea Salt & Rosemary Focaccia

For the month of April Rachael of pizzarossa and Sawsan of Chef in Disguise took us on a trip to Italy. They challenged us to try our hands at making focaccia from scratch

sea salt and rosemary focacciaThis months Daring Bakers challenge was an easy one for me – focaccia, which is one of my favourite breads and one I have made many times. Focaccia is a traditional Italian flatbread made with olive oil; it should be tender and chewy with a crisp crust and an open crumb – lots of little holes inside. It is infinitely customiseable, you can top it with pretty much whatever you want – olives, cheese, tomatoes, onions, nuts, herbs, grapes, roasted peppers etc. but I prefer it with a simple topping of herbs and sea salt. I like to serve it with a selection of dips and antipasti, it also makes fantastic sandwiches, mozzarella and avocado being my favourite. (more…)
