Baking with Julia
Here it is:
November 5, 2013- Pumpernickel Loaves, page 95.
November 19, 2013- Double Chocolate Cookies, page 329.
Heads up! The cookie dough requires several hours or an overnight chill. :)
Good to know! I never read ahead.
can we get p&q on the loaves? I’m wondering if anyone made it without the sling…
I have the same question…hoping not to have to punch holes in my dish towels (!!)…I will likely try it without the sling, and will report back later today. How bad could it be? :-)
I agree. I might try it in a loaf pan (I only did half a recipe), but it’s prob fine as a freeform loaf.
so, instead of putting my loaf (i only made a half recipe) in a sling for it’s final rise, I put it into a 9.5×4.5 loaf pan that I sprayed and sprinkled with a little cornmeal. it made a perfect loaf!
You don’t need to poke holes in your towels. I just tied mine together and used ribbon to hang them. You can see them here when I made the rye bread a couple of years ago:
I used a ribbon too, Cathleen. It was funny having a bread hanging in the kitchen :-)
Do you have any idea, why is “hanging bread” that important?
I’m guessing for those that do not use a couche, using towels and hanging it helps keep its shape.
I could not find prune butter. Purchased plum preserves. I almost subbed apple butter instead. What did you all use?
For 1 loaf (I’ve made 1/2 of the recipe):
I’ve made a “shortcut”: I’ve just pureed 12 dried prunes with two tablespoons of water (and it worked).
I used the prune lekvar recipe in the book, which was basically prunes steeped in hot water and then ground up
