The best bread recipe's II

I know there are some really good bread recipe's and I know there must be another thread about the best bread.
But here's my deal.


I had the best bread recipe'.
It's a southern, historic, french recipe', all at the same time.
It was Jean LaFitte's own recipe' he used in his own galley.
I had this recipe'.
It was in a recipe' book I had copied the whole thing from my boss' mom.
It was a genuine Louisiana cook book that had all of the old fashioned recipe's from LA people and even said how to skin a deer in 5 minutes.
The artwork was incomparable. Sketches of people and things of the area.
Jean LaFitte was sketched on his Baquette recipe.
I had to have a copy and used the copier at the office, then put it in a black three ring binder, back in the mid 80's.
Someone stole this out of my car a couple of years ago.
It was my absolute favorite cookbook ever!
I used it all the time.
I miss my baquette recipe'.
It's simply the best I ever had!

Dang I was hoping for a bread recipe.

Reading your post makes me think you have ADHD.

Heh, heh, heh. Now I'm really hungry for bread. CANDY BARS! Who has the chips?



On a semi-related note, I'm going for a three-day charter this weekend and was thinking about trying my hand at making bread on board. Does anyone have any good recipes that work in a boat oven, or any tips or tricks?

Re: The best bread recipe's II

Heres one from the net.
Ingredients
8 thick (3/4-inch/2 cm) slices day-old French bread
3 tbsp (45 mL) butter, softened
3 cups (750 mL) thawed frozen sliced peaches, halved crosswise
2 cups (500 mL) milk
2/3 cup (150 mL) granulated sugar
1/2 cup (125 mL) 10% cream
3 eggs
1 tbsp (15 mL) vanilla
1 tbsp (15 mL) icing sugar
Preparation


Spread both sides of bread slices with butter; tear into bite-size pieces. Toss with peaches; place in greased 8-inch (2 L) square baking dish.

Whisk together milk, sugar, cream, eggs and vanilla until smooth; pour over bread mixture, gently pressing to soak. Let stand for 5 minutes.

Bake in 350ºF (180ºC) oven until golden, puffed and custard is set, 50 to 60 minutes. Let cool for 10 minutes before serving. Dust with icing sugar.

Re: The best bread recipe's II

Sheesh, is this all you guys could come up with??

Maybe I should have just asked for it.

I've searched the net to no avail.
I have not seen any baquette recipe' even similar to the one I love so much that was stolen from me.

Does anyone have a really good French bread baquette recipe' from the old days??
Or should I say, the Jean LaFitte era... or there about.

Merci boucoup.

With the perfect French baquette recipe this would be quite amazing.

I had one, I think I wrote about it in the first post.
The absolute best.
Tip one.
It will not rise in an ice cold boat.
