I never heard of a pullman pan before either, until I started reading this blog!  Someone mentioned it and a perfectly square loaf of home-made bread sounded great.

 

I had to go look up baking frames.  Now I'm intrigued by those too!  I saw just plain square ones, and then there were cake rings in all kinds of great shapes, like hearts and ovals and such.  My first thought was that they'd be so much easier to store than pans (string a rope or cord through and hang) and much easier to clean!  Can't wait to hear if anyone here has used those…

I have not tried the baking frames mentioned, actually never heard of them,  but I do use the rings from my springform pans set on a cookie sheet.  These keep the dough from spreading out too much if it is a bit soft and makes an attractive loaf.   Will be interested to hear how the Pullman pan works out.   By the way has anyone made the stupid mistake I made and raised and baked pizza crust on the pans with the holes all over, what a mess,  the dough got into the holes as it rose and attached firmly to the pan.  French bread today I think and another blueberry loaf.wave

Not baking today…control panel went out on my oven. The part will cost about 200.00 dollars. But that's not such a bad thing…WE decided to buy a new GAS stove! The smooth top electric is being booted out the door!shimmy

Woo hoo Miss Judy! I have to move my stove this weekend to clean behind it and maybe something horrible will happen to it when I do that.  (wink wink) Then I'd have to go get a new (gas) stove.  Is the oven electric?

Joyce, I have one of those french bread pans with the holes and I did the same thing when I left the bread to rise a bit more instead of tossing it right into the oven.  I do feel  your pain.  It was a mess!

Dee--do you have a recipe?  I don't have any currants but I'm eyeing some dried cherries I have sitting here…happy-flower

I will post a picture of the pullman pan bread when I get off my butt here and make it.  Yup right now.  Getting up…

More Woo Hoo to Miss Judy!   I have nothing but bad experiences with the 2 years we had an electric stove…..I had always used gas and never realized how much difference there was in the two!  Enjoy that new gas stove!! 

hmmm, you all have had dough ooze thru the perforated french bread pans?  I can't say that's ever happened….what kind of recipe where you working with?

Yesterday's adventure was  tortillas and pita breads…..and flour is everywhere now that the sun is shining into the kitchen this morning!  I "thought" I cleaned up…….bug-eyed

Does baked chicken count?  :)

I am not baking today but wanted to tell Joell I tried her recipe for bread the day before yesterday. Really, really, really, very good! If there weren't so many peeps bragging on Grandmothers bread I'de look no further. Now I have got to try that one too. Until then Joells recipe is tender yet has that chewy "body" I love in my toast. I' rather have good toasted home made bread with butter than dessert! There goes my waistline. (just kidding, I don't have a waistline)

Thanks Joell!

Murphala the recipe for Currant Raisin Oatmeal Bread is in Farm Bell Recipes. I use what ever dried fruit I have on hand. Let me know how it is with the dried cherries.

I used nearly the whole loaf for french toast for Ed's breakfast' this week. Will be making Rosemary Batter bread for dinner. Quick, easy and delish!  snuggle

I made Grandmothers Raisin bread today. I used white bread flour and I did roll it out and add cinnamon sugar before rolling up and placing in the pan for the second rise. Turned out great, I will add even more cinnamon sugar next time. Yes, there WILL be a next time. yes

So Joell, about those orange cream filled cupcakes from March 9, might there be a recipe forthcoming? My menfolk would love those. They are not chocolate people.

And whatever became of the fatayer of March the third, Murphala? Was it a success? Would you have a recipe for that? You can't go too wrong if it involves spinach, can you?

Whew…a minute to breathe!  Made beef stew with stout, some artisan bread to go with it. And set up a crock of garlic dill pickles to ferment (not baking, but hey)

Dee, I saw your reply and went to FBR and found the recipe.  Don't have a bread machine (I'm the bread machine!) so I faked it.  We'll see how it turns out!  It's on its second rise and will go in after the artsy bread comes out.  If it turns out OK sans bread machine, I'll let you know of the adjustments I made (it seemed to not take on as much flour as specified for the bread machine)  Looks yummy though!

lavenderblue, the fatayer did indeed turn out and I still have a few in the fridge. I would not necessarily use this dough again…I'd look for another recipe.  If you want to see the blow-by-blow, including my ugly-as-sin folding of these guys, it's here: http://www.ala-murphala.com/blog/fatayer-bil-sbanegh/  They taste just as good square as they do triangular! 

In other square news I baked square bread.  In a pullman pan.  And lived to write about it.  I submitted a post to FBR about it, if it runs.  happy-flowerSorry for the long post! I'll shut up now!  And I second the request on the orange cream filled cupcakes!  Mmmm!!!

I made a gruyere pullman loaf in my Pullman pan.  It turned out great.  You can get the same effect by using a regular loaf pan.  Grease one side of a baking sheet. Cover the loaf pan (greased side down) and weight it with a brick. The shape is geat for sandwiches. The guys eat a lot of sandwiches around here.  I only used it once so far so I am no expert.

Gruyere bread?  Wow, that sounds really good!  But I wish I had thought of the pan on top thing before I dropped 60 bucks on two pullman pans! Of course, I love gadgets and probably couldn't have resisted the coolness factor of a pan with a sliding lid!

Today I'm putting in a double batch of Dee58m's currant raisin bread because the first loaf I made miraculously and completely disappeared.  Gone.  That's some good bread!

This isn't baking but I'm so proud of myself!  I opened up my first-ever hard cheese, Caerphilly, today and oh, is it delicious!  It's a little dryer than I would like, but the taste is fantastic! smiley-puppy

I just took out of the oven, 2 loaves of whole wheat Grandmother bread. It smells sooo good! I cut a big slice off the end of one loaf, spread real butter on it and shared it with DH.

Thank you, Suzanne, for this yummy recipe and method!

Remember, if it rains on your picnic it's also raining on your garden!

I just baked Angel food lemon bars in MY NEW GAS STOVE! Hubby got it hooked up last  night and I wanted to can tonight but was so tired that I picked out an easy dessert to make (to take to school tomorrow.) The oven works beautifully! Can't wait to make bread.

I wanted an electric convection oven and a gas stove top…but surprisedthey are very expensive.

The main thing is being able to can without frustration.

Everyone's recipes sound so yummy. Murphala, I guess I forgot to tell you the Currant Raisin Bread is addictive? laugh Now you see why my DH requests it often. It is also wonderfully delish as french toast.

Today I used my favorite apple crisp recipe and used blueberries. So guess that makes it a blueberry crisp? fork
