It's been a little longer than usual between posts. I promise I'm not quitting this blog! Not yet, at the very least. Between Memorial Day weekend and life generally trending back toward a semblance of normal, I just haven't had any time to sit down and write a post. But here I am and here it is, the next post! BURGER BAPS.
Burger baps - or buns - are one of those things that I didn't really think of as a major technical challenge. And admittedly I still don't, necessarily. But I always have the benefit of looking at these technical challenges from the perspective of someone with limitless time.
Paul's floury burger baps with veggie burgers appeared on series 10 (Netflix Collection 7), episode 3 - Bread Week. As the technical challenge of the week, bakers were given Paul's pared down recipe and a limited amount of time to put it all together.
After the hot mess that was my last bake, I needed something a little easier to tackle. The fraisier cake has shaken my confidence, left me wondering if this was a good decision - maybe I should call it quits.
Who am I kidding? I love baking. A difficult bake isn't going to make me stop loving the adventure of baking.
In Series 6 (Netflix collection 3) episode 3, the bakers faced BREAD WEEK! The signature challenge of the episode had the bakers making two flavors of quick bread. Any quick bread of their choice.
If you are unfamiliar with quick bread, the basic run down is this: quick bread is bread leavened with leavening agents other than yeast or eggs.
The most common quick bread I've ever encountered? Soda bread. Pretty much all the bakers in this episode made a variant of soda bread.
I'm lazy and going to follow their example. I also made soda bread.
