Kasseler Bread

Kasseler ‘Grey Bread’ – One of Fifty shades of German bread

Very delicious this one. And the first yeast-bread I somewhat mastered! It is soooooooo good!!! I started making this without a mixer, so it is possible, the ‘Krume’ as it is called in German – the stuff inside the crust, will not turn out as flexible and homogenous if you make it by hand, but […]

Knäckebröd - 3rd trial

Swedish Crispbread with ‘Snow’ II – 3rd Re-creation atempt of “þe awld brēad”?

A third attempt, this time with longer baking and some more learned details. Just a reminder –  I read on the English Wikipedia that the old way of making Knäckebröd – Knäckebrot in German and Swedish Crisp Bread in English was with crushed ice or snow. All modern versions I found would be with yeast. […]

To allot flour (and stuff) – Weight vs. Volume

I am a “weight rather than volume” person for flour and other “pouring” powders.  This surely is, because this is normal and everyone does it this way and always had. My grandma’s cookbooks already are full of weight measures for things such as flour in baking. Everyone has done it forever – everyone, always, forever?

Pancakes or Pikelets – wheat, dairy, baking powder free

This is my first post, so I just go with what I whipped up today. Balance and diversity is healthy and some of my friends reduce wheat/gluten/dairy in their diet for various reasons, so I was curious if I could come up with a recipe of pancakes that’s edible and has a good texture as […]
