看到朋友Peiwen貼出她做的健康養生麵包, 得知食譜來自Healthy Bread in 5 Minutes a day一書, 我也上網訂了一本. 這本書中除了介紹食材, 工具, 技巧之外, 分為Whole Grain Breads, Breads with Hidden Fruits and Vegetables, Flatbreads and Pizza, Gluten-Free Bread and Pastries, Enriched Breads and Pastres from Healthy Ingredients.
此書最大賣點, 除了健康以外, 就是完全不用揉麵團, 而且事先把大份量的麵團做起來, 放在冰箱冷藏, 二週內用完即可, 這樣每天只需要一點點時間就有新鮮出爐的麵包可吃. 這對喜歡吃麵包, 想顧及健康, 又不想花很多時間的人來說, 簡直像美夢成真.
2 cups unbleached all-purpose flour
1/4 cup vital wheat gluten flour
1 1/2 TB granulated yeast or 2 packets
1 TB Kosher salt
3 1/4 cups lukewarm water
1 large sweet potato, skin on, cleaned and coarsely shredded (3 1/2 cups, packed)
作法: (最好是前一天先把麵團做起來, 冷藏到隔夜再烤)
– Whisk together the flours, yeast, salt in a 5-quart bowl (using the stand mixer bowl).
– Cover (not airtight), and allow the dough to rest at room temperature until it rises and collapses (or flattens on top), about 2 hours.
– Refrigerate it with a lid or plastic wrap (not airtight) and use over the next 7 days. ( the flavor will be best if you wait for at least 24 hours of refrigeration)
– On Baking Day, dust the surface of the refrigerated dough with flour and cut off a 1-pound (grapefruit-size) piece. Dust the piece with more flour and quickly shape it into a ball by streching the surface of the dough around to the bottom on all four sides, rotating the ball a quarter-turn as you go.
– To form the buns, divide the ball into 8 (我是切六份) roughly equal portions (each about the size of a golf ball). Shape each one into a smooth ball. Allow them to rest, loosely covered with plastic wrap, on a cookie shhet lined with parchment paper for 40 min.
– 30 min before baking time, preheat the oven to 450 F, with a baking stone place on the middle rack. Place an empty metal broiler tray (or metal baking pan) on any other shelf that won't interfere with the rising buns.
– Just before baking, use a pastry brush to paint the top crusts with water.
– Slide the cookie sheet directly onto the hot stone. Pour 1 cup of hot tap water into the broiler tray, and quickly close the oven door. Bake for about 20 min, until ricjly browned and firm.
不知道問題在哪 (唯一可以想到的是地瓜沒有真的乖乖量三杯半), 但是成品的長相不太像餐包(太扁了點), 而且一點都不好吃, 也不香, 如果本來吃起來就該這個味道, 那就不是我會喜歡的麵包了. 好失望喔!!!
