HOW DO YOU KEEP THE BOTTOM OF THE PASTRY FROM GOING SOGGY?!

 

 

 

 

Apologies for the outburst, that looks great, and mine just won’t stay dry at the bottom.

Thought you became Ramsay for a moment.

Flour & oil the baking tray.

Interesting, I will try that next time. Thank you.


Yes, apologies, should have mentioned this to you when you asked for the recipe.

FWIW I cheated with this one, it was shop bought from Aldi. I was painting the outdoor stairs yesterday so I didn’t want to have to make one from scratch. Initially went to get a beef rib joint my girlfriend had saw a couple of days previously, but at £28, I couldn’t justify spending that for dinner for just the two of us.

Aye. Sylvia is 5 years old this year. She's my second sourdough starter, Maria lived for about 3 years before that but succumbed to an unrecoverable fungal infection. RIP.

I don't know why people say sourdough bakers are weirdos.

You are a weird for supporting Hibs.

But you're a cracking baker.

I am going to give it a go.

I have watched a couple of YouTube videos. It looks a bit messy. Do you use a bit marble to mix the dough on? Just on your bunker? It's just sticky looking. 

 

I have bought 10kg of chapati flour the other day, I usually just make flatbread. I was thinking of using that.

I'll take it.

My goal in life is to replicate a loaf I had in France once that had more oil and salt in it than I thought was possible so I'm basically never happy with the results!

At culinary college we used to not prove the dough in warm areas. Usually leave it overnight cool & the yeast made the flavour.

Maybe try that.

Amalgamating a few posts I've made about it:

 

Also on reading back I have misremembered Sylvia's age, she's only about a year old which means Maria was my 5 year starter and I can't remember the name of the one that was 3 years before that!

Thanks for that.

Pretty similar to this video I watched. An Irish guy.

One thing though, how dd you know you had a fungal problem? Was it the smell or something you could see?
