Maisie is the daughter of a good friend of mine, and before christmas, Maisie and I had the opportunity to get to make doodlebread together and here’s a wee photo diary of how we got on 🙂
Here’s maisie, wondering when we’re going to start baking and stop taking photos..
Maisie’s a big girl and doesn’t need anyone’s help opening the packets!
Maisie’s added all the water, and is stirring up the dough..
The dough is getting good and kneaded..
We’ve squished all our dough down into the tin
Now to get cleaned up!
While we’re waiting for the dough to proof, Maisie makes a start colouring in her doodle bread box..
We plopped out the doodle before maisie went to bed, and I popped it in the oven. In the morning, we all had fresh Doodle Bread for breakfast!
Maisie has been asking for weeks now when she is going to be on the doodlebread blog, and hopefully she’ll enjoy the photos! Has anyone reading the blog got any photos of making doodle bread? Would you like to share them? Because we’d love to see them! We have some goodies to give away for any that appear on the doodle bread blog, so if you’d like to appear here please Email Us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
I’ve been messing about with a few different ideas for doodle bread recently and was asked to make some puppy doodle bread! This is the first attempt and though the cocoa and blueberry smelt gorgeous I’m not sure the little puppy doodle is right yet.. When I have the proper technique and recipe nailed down I’ll post it up, but in the meantime I thought I’d put a photo up of the first go.
Have finally managed to get most of the doodle bread images we have so far up onto our flickr account, check it out!
This is a recipe for a loaf we’ve been making for the farmers market in Belfast, and has been going down a storm with mostly kids! It’s a chocolate loaf with a vanilla star in the centre. The bread is great to eat with jam, peanut butter, nutella and is great for a treat.
First of all, you need the doodle bread kit some oil, and some extra flour for dusting.
For the chocolate dough –
335g or 1 1/2 cups of Strong White Bread Flour
20g or 1 tablespoon Sugar
20g or 1 tablespoon Good Quality Cocoa Powder
5g or 1 teaspoon Dried Yeast
pinch of Salt
Dribble of oil or a knob of butter
210ml or about 7 fluid ounces of Warm Water
For the Vanilla Dough
80g or 1/2 cup of Strong White Bread Dough
5g or a teaspoon Dried Yeast
pinch of Sugar
pinch of Salt
2g (approx) vanilla seeds or vanilla extract
60ml or 2 fluid ounces Warm Water
Ok, first things first. Make up the chocolate dough by adding the dry ingredients together first, then a dribble of oil and then the water. mix together with your hands or a spoon until you get a ball of dough, put it out onto the table and then knead the dough.
Repeat this with the vanilla dough. For a few more doodle bread pointers in case you aren’t sure by now click here
The loaf needs to be left to prove for roughly an hour and at that time, take the doodle out and bake your loaf in a pre-heated oven at 220 c or gas mark 7 or 425 farenheit.
Once the loaf is baked, tap the top and you should hear a hollow noise. Let the loaf cool a bit before slicing!
