I just want the most foolproof, easy, beginner friendly recipe on any kind of loaf.
I attempted sourdough but it always ends up super dense and shitty. Help breadons

No. 183314

I’ve tried this one, it’s pretty foolproof

No. 183325

Proofing is key for a fluffy texture. After kneading in the bowl until it holds it shape and not sticky anymore, proof dough in a warm environment (my house is cold so I like to run a heating fan while the bowl is covered) for an hour. Punch the air out, proof for another hour. Punch the air out again and shape into your loaf pan. Proof for a final 30 minutes, then bake at 350F for 30 minutes.

PROTIP: Sometimes I throw the bowl into the fridge for a long but slow proof of 12+ hrs, then take it out to punch out the air, shape, and do a final half hour of proofing. This is my lazy method for when I don’t have time to monitor my dough

PROTIP 2: When I say an hour, I meant however long it takes for the dough to double in size. It may take more than an hour if your area is cold, it may take less if hot.

PROTIP 3: Your dough should be between wet and dry for moist, not-dense bread. It should hold its shape but not be so dry that it “cracks”. Err on the side of it being too wet.

No. 183329

Samefag, adding that if you want a crunchy bread like baguettes, shape into a baking sheet instead of a loaf pan and proof for the final 30 minutes. Brush the tops with egg wash. Place into a 500F oven and spray the sides of your oven with water. Bake for 7-10 minutes.

The texture of my risotto rice is always weirdly hard in the middle and soft outside. Am I cooking it too fast, or using the wrong amount of liquid?

No. 183356

I already cooked today and I'd like to bake BUT my husband is on a diet (and asleep) and I'm sick, so I can't go to the shop. I have leftover carrots that need to be used and I just want to bake, goddamn!

Next week I'll have to make my husband a cake and cook his favorite meal since it'll be a surprise for his birthday but I also want to bake right now! Maybe I'll negotiate with my husband tomorrow and put the carrot cake in the freezer to wait for the end of the diet.

No. 183372

Could be both but you probably just need to cook it a little longer. Always make sure there's enough liquid (it's much easier to let the excess evaporate when you use a little too much than it is to add more after it's already done but too dry), but if there's really not enough liquid the outside of the rice is gonna be hard as well. Maybe when you think you're about done take out a little spoonful and test it to see if it's soft inside, if it's still hard and undercooked just let it cook for another 5 minutes and repeat until it's good. That's what I do with pasta, anyway, and it's saved me from only discovering it's undercooked in the middle after I've plated it many times.
If the rice is already drained and cooled off you can also easily chuck it back into a pan with half a glass of water and put the lid on for another few minutes, but I guess with risotto it's already mixed in with the rest so maybe not so useful.

So far I'm making a banoffee pie and waiting for the crust to cool down to room temperature so that I can put the caramel in it. After that I plan to:
1)put the banoffee pie in the fridge for 4 hours
2)Take the banoffee pie out of the fridge and put the banana slices in
3)make the whipped cream (I don't have an electric mixer, so this will take a while. I plan to do this 30 minutes before I take the banoffee pie out of the fridge)
4)add the whipped cream on top
5)struggle to get the banoffee pie out of the baking tin due to stupidity

i really love lemon tarts but i am too scared to ingest so many calories.

instead, i found this recipe – 1 cup greek yogurt + 2 eggs + lemon juice and lemon zest + (optional but i put it so i don't have to use sugar) mango puree .. blended and poured into an (optional) crust base that i make with either biscuits or with cocoa powder + oats + nuts + dates (no butter, dates and nuts do the trick) .. you can make it without the crust as well. then bake for 45 mins and cool in fridge.

don't feel guilty for eating it, relatively high in protein, and it really tastes good imo.

Chefanon here. When you whip the whipped cream, it'll look shiny at first. Like it's wet (which it is). You should whip it until the shine is gone and it looks "matte". That's the sign that it's stiffened up enough.

No. 192897

I'll tell you of a pasta recipe my dad taught me. Get fusilli pasta. Get half a pound or so of ground Italian sausage (or can be whole sausages, as long as they're uncooked and you can squeeze 'em out of the casings). Turn on the water for the pasta. Throw some olive oil in a pot (not a skillet, a pot, you're gonna combine all the ingredients together), crank up heat to medium. Once the oil's shimmering, throw the ground sausage in there. Brown it, and break it up into small, bite-sized pieces. Then take it out of the pot and put it in a bowl or something.
WHILE you're cooking the meat, throw the pasta into the now-boiling water. Get some rapini (2-3 stalks will do), chop it up into bite-sized pieces, including the heads. Get half a cup cup of warm water, add 1 tsp. of chicken broth to it, mix it up. Thinly slice up a clove or two of garlic. Add garlic to pot (still has sausage fat/olive oil in it) and cook it, then add the rapini. Saute the rapini briefly, then add the chicken stock. Cover it with a lid. The rapini will cook down (squeeze it with your fingers, make sure it's soft but not sludgy). Once it has, remove the lid, reduce the liquid down, throw the meat back in, drain the pasta, add that in, and mix it all up. Add a little more olive oil, some salt and pepper, and pepper flakes for extra style points.

No. 204538

Sautéed veggies? I don't think they take that much and there are a lot of sauces to condiment them with. My comfort food for when I'm feeling like shit and don't want to cook is rice/noodles with sautéed vegetables (it can be with everything seriously, peppers, onions, garlic, eggplant, zucchini, etc) + soy sauce + ground ginger + salt. Very basic but tasty and simple imo
Do you like salads and fresh vegetables? I love fresh tomatoes with olive oil, little bit of salt and oregano. You can add cheese or garlic as well

No. 204542

I know it’s not quite as healthy as eating plain veggies, but I usually roast them in the oven with a bit of olive oil (and various seasonings). You can obviously only use a small amount of oil if you’re watching calories. Toss some broccoli on a sheet pan with olive oil, garlic, salt/pepper, a little lemon juice, roast for 25 mins or so, and you’ve got a very easy/delicious side dish. Add a bit of parm cheese and it’s even better. Green beans I usually roast with only olive oil and crushed rosemary. I also love roasted spaghetti squash with saucey main dishes, it’s kind of a plain flavor by itself but it goes great with BBQ sauce. Any kind of roasted vegetable dish is pretty easy because you just toss with oil/seasonings and let it cook. Brussel sprouts are also delicious pan-fried or roasted with garlic and a splash of balsamic vinegar. It depends on your tastes of course, but I love veggies with a fuckton of garlic.

im trying to make a sourdough starter for almost 2 weeks now but it doesnt look "spongy"(like picrel) i dont know what i'm doing wrong. First 2 days it smelled absolutely rancid it smelled like vomit, then i started using cold tap water(apparently my house is too hot) then smell went away, it still smelled acidic but not like vomit, it gets some bubbles at the top usually so i assumed it was alive but it didnt pass the float test so i kept feeding, i forgot to feed it for 2 days now it smells like yogurt(in a good way) but no bubbles so i think its dead. It doesnt rise as it should, I'm gonna post my feeding schedule and take pics tomorrow morning(to give an accurate visual because i just fed it 15 mins ago) i'd appreciate it if an anon could tell me where i went wrong
-discard until 70g of previous starter is left(i discard about 180g)
-50 g whole wheat flour+50g of regular flour+100-150g of cold water(some days it becomes too watery and there's too much hooch at the top so i put less water those days)

I'm planning on making these Chelsea buns sometime soon. the combo of orange and chocolate is one of my favs

for the dough
✔️ 600g strong white bread flour
✔️ 12g fast action/instant yeast
✔️ 12g salt
✔️ 75g caster sugar
✔️ 2 large eggs
✔️ 1 heaped tsp cinnamon
✔️ 1 tsp orange extract (or zest two oranges)
✔️ 245ml whole milk (semi-skimmed is fine if not)
✔️ 60g unsalted butter, softened

For the filling:

✔️ 80g unsalted butter
✔️ 110g caster sugar
✔️ 160g dark or milk chocolate
✔️ 30g cocoa powder
✔️ Zest two oranges

For the orange icing:

✔️ 100g icing sugar, sifted
✔️ Squeeze of orange juice until you get a thick but pourable consistency

You do it likes this:

1. Make the dough. Combine the flour, sugar, salt, cinnamon and yeast in a bowl. Add the milk, orange extract and butter. Knead for 5 minutes if using a stand mixer or 8-10 minutes by hand until the dough is smooth and you can see light through it. Leave to proof in a greased bowl covered in cling film until doubled in size.

2. Make the filling. Add the butter, caster sugar and chocolate to a medium sized saucepan. Once melted, take off the heat, sieve in the cocoa powder and combine. Leave to cool.

3. Once the dough has proved, roll it out to a 40 x 40cm square. Spread the chocolate paste onto the dough along with the zest of two large oranges. Roll up the dough tightly to create a sausage shape, then divide into 10 or 12 portions. Arrange each bit of dough (swirl side up) on a lined/greased baking tray, cover loosely and leave to proof again. Once doubled in size, bake at 170 fan for 15-18 minutes.

4. Once the rolls have cooled slightly, make the glaze by squeezing the orange juice into a bowl with the (sieved) icing sugar and stir until you get a thick but pourable consistency. Spread over the rolls generously and then op with more grated orange zest. Best enjoyed fresh the same day. Enjoy!

I get that, but its to help prevent the fish from drying out during the cooking process. Certain foods will require more than others, but you won't end up tasting it in the end.

This isn't a direct inquiry into cooking or baking recipes, but rather on self-cleaning ovens. Have you guys used the feature if you have it? I've heard some scary stories about blown fuses after using the feature and I get put off using it. Additionally, I heard that you shouldn't hand clean self-cleaning ovens as they have a special coating that comes off with cleaning products. I would love to use my oven but anxiety around that feature is keeping me off from using it.

No. 213156

My favorite way to clean an oven is using a baking soda paste. You just mix baking soda with water, leave it on for an hour or overnight (depending on the grime), and it’s pretty easy to clean off in the morning. I recommend using a lot of baking soda and leaving it overnight. There are a bunch of tutorials online if you google it, although I’d recommend looking at a couple different ones just to get an idea before you do it. I was also always told not to use the self-cleaning feature on the oven for some reason (why do they even include it if no one uses it? kek) but since the baking soda method is so cheap and easy, I never really strayed from it.

It also helps to line your bottom rack with foil, depending on what you’re cooking. There are things like silicone spill mats too. The best way is keeping your oven clean as you go, wipe up any spills or crumbs as soon as it’s cooled down so you don’t need to do a “big cleaning” every few months.

This recipe has a few ingredients that are specialty and you have to buy first, but once you have them in the house, you just need to top up on rice, vegetables and chicken to make the meal again, and it's very tasty. In the mornings, you can have a little of this this thick, wholesome, spicy stir fry on some noodles, with julienned cucumber and a sliced boiled egg, and it's the perfect, tasty start to the day.

This meal looks like it would warm me up on the inside and make me feel better about loneliness and life. Thank you anon, I will try this

These look fun, now I want to make and decorate some cookies.

Thank you anon!! I’m cooking my first duck for a special occasion with my family and this looks like a great recipe I might just have to use.

Good luck! I've relied upon that exact recipe many times over the years. The first time was when I used apples, but now I opt for slices of lemon, fresh cilantro and parsley, onions, and garlic cloves. I think it suits it way better and you can use the fat drippings to fry slices of potatoes in a pan after.

Anon-chans, I've been making this recipe every morning for work lunch and it's so so good and easy as fuck.

>Put a serving of dry pasta/spaghetti in lunch container.

>2-3tbs feta cheese
>olive oil
>whatever the else fuck you want: cherry tomatoes, spinach, etc
>at work: pour enough water in to barely submerge pasta
>loosely cover with lid and microwave 3 mins
>replace lid but leave a crack
>microwave 2-3 more mins
>stir and enjoy

This is honestly making me lose weight cause I don't want to get takeout for lunch anymore.

Blend stuff! Soups, smoothies, other shit
>cooked pumpkin/squash
>sesame oil
>chili paste or flakes
>cooked ramen

>frozen banana

Oatmeal with peanut butter and maple syrup. Hummus and pita bread. Avocado with furikake seasoning on toast or crackers. Granola and oat milk with fresh/dried berries. Make salads but slice all the ingredients thinly into a slaw.

my favorite low budget Dhal knockoff recipe:
red lentils,
spinach, doesn’t have to be fresh
chopped garlic and ginger
spices of your choice, but salt and pepper or chili is enough
and don’t forget to add a bit of oil or fat as flavor carrier.

that’s it. fucking tasty, vegan and cheap af

I found an easier way to make stuffed pretzel bites
>prepare store bought pizza dough from packet
>use like 1tbl of dough at a time, flatten them out
>put bit of softened jalapeno/cream cheese inside & seal them
>boil them in baking soda water (1/4c bs for 4 cups) for like 20 secs
>remove with slotted spoon onto sprayed baking sheet
>sprinkle with salt and bake at 400F until golden brown
>brush with butter at last minute.
They weren't as pretzely as when the dough was homemade but very enjoyable. I only made a few I'm making the rest today

Any personal tips on enhancing a recipe or make whatever you baked 100x better by tweaking. (e.g. extra butter, omission of an ingredient)

No. 214476

Some people might sneer, but using a bit of mayo to make something moist or using duck eggs as opposed to chicken eggs for richness. I don't always do the latter, more like for special occasions when I'm baking for a large event, and I've found that it complements strawberry cakes or cupcakes nicely.

No. 214477

I add a bit of marmite to some savoury dishes to enhance the umami.

Add browned butter to any cookie or cake recipe. Not heaps, but like up to few tbs. Extra moisture, bit deeper flavour, really compliments caramel and nuts.

i only ever use salted butter. for everything. i dont tweak the amount of salt in the recipe either.

Humita! This is the only english recipe I found but I'm sure there are more (Make sure it's this corn dish, and not the ecuadorian humitas). I know it says to add milk but I've never done it with milk, it's not necessary, neither is the cheese.

Nonnies, how the hell do I clean my pot after boiling potatoes? It seems like there’s always a lot of stubborn starch left on the pot that doesn’t want to come off, even with scrubbing I always miss a few spots. Am I just a moron? Is there a trick to getting it completely clean?

No. 215678

Hmm maybe try laying down the surface with a thick water + baking soda paste? Then wait a bit, get a rough sponge to rub, then use vinegar to spray down any remaining traces of potato.

I decided this year my birthday cake is going to be this chocolate coffee mascarpone tart. I love yellow cake with chocolate frosting, but I want to change it up this year. I love the flavors of tiramisu, and this tart looks like it has that but unlike tiramisu it has a nice shortbread crust for texture. I'm really excited to make it!

How hard would it be for a total idiot to make choux pastry for eclairs and similar shit? I bake sometimes, but just easy stuff. Tray bakes, pound cakes, cookies etc. I often feel like a complete idiot in the kitchen and always manage to fuck something up but I really want to surprise my mom with her favorite treat.

Oh dont worry nonnie its easy as fuck and the dough smells nice too, you make a ton with one batch, the piping may seem hard but its entirely optional just slap it onto the paper it’ll still be tasty
If youre making eclairs dont worry yourself over injecting the filling through the bottom you can just cut it in half and put in the filling i ve seen tons of bakeries do it that way

No. 217211

Oh they look great, I think you nailed it. I'm not making any christmas cookies because my oven doesn't work kek

No. 217348

it's not that hard, your first few might be a little bit busted if you aren't used to piping. definitely watch a few videos so you know how to fill a bag without getting your hands dirty. i really like the glass trick in the embed video.

good luck nonita! you're so sweet, your mom is going to love them!
