Re: Unhealthy eating by office workers

I have to agree with Dajwid and Hans. Polish bread is dreadful stuff compared to quality English and/or German bread. And plenty of Poles eat white toast bread nowadays.

Errrm - dunno what sort it is!!
Hold on, hmmm ... Moulinex.
Thinks.
Opens another internet search screen and looks. Finds, copies and VOILA!!

Do's - buy.
Don'ts - buy the wrong flour (look for the highest number flour you can get - 650 or more if possible). I have problems getting it as brown as I like, even though I put it on the maximum setting. I usually just bung it in the conventional oven for 5 mins to finish it off.

The whole process is easy - put the ingredients in and turn on. It mixes, proves, raises, bakes. You pull it out 3 hours later, finish in the oven for 5 mins and then put it on a rack to cool. Yummy. Good texture too.
I made bread sticks (grissini)on Saturday - you know the crunchy snacky stuff. It makes the dough and then you bake it separately in the oven. Didn't turn out perfectly because I baked them a touch too long, but they were OK and I didn't feel as if I'd wasted a whole load of time kneading etc. Same day consumption required - not usually a problem in our house as the kids devour our bread.
One problem is our daughter - she feels hard done-by because she reckons it doesn't taste the same unless her mummy is tired out.
