Re: The Bread Thread

I have an awesome easy bread recipe

1 warm beer,NOT a light beer
2 teaspoons sugar
3 cups self rising flour
Mix well,place in pan,put pan in COLD oven,set to 350 and bake appx 45 minutes to 1 hour depending on how your oven bakes. remove from oven,coll a little,slather with butter.Yumm.
this can be done with all kinds of variations.Add some corn (whole kernal) and bits of jalapeno,try bits of fruit and stir in some cinnamon.At times we add a packet of yeast for lighter bread but not necessary..quick and easy,no kneading.

The Tasajara book says its the 30th anniversary edition, so I couldn't have learned directly from it, it wasn't yet written. Wonder if that style of baking was just popular in the late 1970s? Anyway, going to try his method today, will report back.
Tassajara is a whole "thing". I don't know too much about it, but the Tassajara Center (outside of SanFran?) has taught lots of people about baking bread and the book many more. The center was almost certainly around in the 70's. I'm interested to hear whether you learned some derivation (I think the basics are pretty much the basics but when I saw you write "at least 100 stirs" I thought you might know this stuff.

Not being a real "bread" maker I didn't think I had anything to contribute to this great thread until I saw the reference to biscuits.....being from Alabama I'd like to think I know a little about biscuits!

Re: The Bread Thread

I didn't know that Sailnet condones the torture of its members! All this talk of bread is killing me!!! It's much worse than waterboarding. My mouth is watering so much that I've nearly drowned twice! I DEMAND that the moderators require samples to be sent to me for immediate consumption or else..... or else..... well, or else I will be forced to settle for the crap from Walmart!!!! How can you live with yourselves?
