Re: Post photos of what you cook and bake in Switzerland

Bakewell tart...my first attempt at both this tart and pastry without being under my Grandma's supervision

PS: If anybody has any good recipies for bakewell tarts they'd like to share I'd really appreciate it! Whilst this tastes ok it's slightly more buttery than I'd like

Re: Post photos of what you cook and bake in Switzerland

I had a fun couple of hours in the kitchen on Sunday. Was really pleased with the results (photographs taken by my husband)

I have only just realised that a Gipfeli (duh) is a croissant!!! Strange, as I thought that a croissant was a croissant everywhere, if that makes sense ...


croissant is he yummy thing with subjective perceived 90% butter in it

gipfeli is the swiss wanna-be-croissant, which after few hours feels like made out of 90% dust.






Marjorie Dawes (Little Britain): Dust. Anybody? No? High in fat, low in fat? Dust. Anybody? No? Dust. Anybody? No? Dust. Anybody? No? Dust. Anybody? No? Dust. Anybody? No? Dust. It's actually very low in fat. You can have as much dust as you like.

I didn't realise that it needed a few hours to properly cool and set

Re: Post photos of what you cook and bake in Switzerland

Carrot cake muffins à la Delia (I'm yet to decide if I'll ice these or not)

I replaced half the oil with orange juice to make them even kinder on the hips, but they taste as sinful as ever

Re: Post photos of what you cook and bake in Switzerland

While not strictly Swiss, I did make something a little unusual while I was there.
It started as a joke:



And then I might have actually made it...

home made bread
Recipe here (english version after a lithuanian one). If anyone wants to try, I can give some sourdough to start with (I'm in Lugano)

Re: Post photos of what you cook and bake in Switzerland

Egla, why do you need the previous dough? I really want to try this bread, but there is no previous dough in my kitchen... and the other question is the sugar, I am not keen on on refined sugar, does something else work too?

The photos are great I must tell you that.

Re: Post photos of what you cook and bake in Switzerland

Brilliant bread photos.

If you don't have your own sourdough starter, it's pretty easy - here's how to make it:

http://www.channel4.com/food/recipes...ecipe_p_1.html

Basically, the longer you keep the starter, the better the bread tastes. I have heard that it's not unknown in Italy for starter to be passed from nonna to nipote, down through the generations.

The previous dough works as sourdough that you can also make yourself as milesaway pointed out, but it takes some time and patience If you were in Lugano I would for sure give you some

My friend doesn't add any sugar and it works fine for her. I usually put brown cane sugar as to my taste it's better with some sweetness in it. Possibly you could also add some maple syrup or honey to replace the sugar, but I've never tried those
