Does this mean the braai is back on for the week-end Stennie? Only if you make the bread!

Russian Black Bread -  with options depending on what tastes you have
you can add the vinegar if you want ( I dont as it gives it a bit of a bite)
You can use the cocoa powder - I use melted chocolate smoothed with melted butter
I choose to leave out the caraway and fennel seeds and replace them with half a cup of raisens and or nuts.

INGREDIENTS:-

1 Cup Strong Black Coffee
Half Cup of water
2 Table spoons Corn or Maple syrup

2.5 Cups Bread flour
1 Cup Rye flour
1 Teaspoon salt
2 Table spoons Brown sugar
2 Teaspoons  dry activated yeast
100 g Dark Chocolate
2 Table spoons butter

Optional ingrediants:
1 Table spoon caraway seeds
Quarter tea spoon fennel seeds
2 Table spoons Vinegar ( preferably Cider)
            OR
Half a cup of raisens and or nuts.

METHOD:-

Make up the yeast with A little sugar and half cup luhe warm wate, make sure it is working before proceeding
Mix all the wet ingredients in a bowl
Melt the chocolate and butter make sure it is cool enough before thinking of adding it to the bread mix

Mix all the dry ingredients in a seperate bowl - and then knead the two lots together slowly working the bread
add the cool buy Melted chocolate and butter, with your choice of nuts & or raisins.....or the Caraway & or fennel.
Leave covered in a warmish place, allow to rise once, knock it back and place into Greased (or sprayed) bread tins.
Allow to rise in the tin when doubled in size, paint with an egg & milk wash, put the tins into the oven.
Pre-heat oven to 180C oven      or  gas mark 6  after 35 minutes in oven check with a steel skewer or knife 
make sure that the skewer comes out dry & not sticky when removed.
Remove from tins & Place on wire rack to cool.

Found you a Jolloff Rice recipe Bev is this it?

Joloff Rice Ingredients
1 tsp Vegetable oil
1 Onion; roughly chopped;
500 g Tomatoes; roughly chopped 
600 ml Water; (1 pint) 
125 g Peas; frozen, defrosted 
1 pk Cherry bomb chillies
250 g Round grain rice 
100 g Frozen cooked tiger prawns; 
1 ts Curry powder 
Salt and freshly ground 

Heat the oil in a heavy based saucepan over a moderate heat, add the tomatoes and chillies, reduce the heat to a low setting and cook for 5 minutes until soft and pulpy. Blend the tomato mixture in a food processor or liquidiser. Pass the mixture through a fine sieve into a clean bowl. Place the rice, curry powder and onion into the saucepan and return the pan to the heat, dry fry the ingredients on a moderate heat for 1 minute. Pour the water onto the rice and stir to remove the rice from the base of the pan. Cook for 10 minutes, stirring occasionally. Add the puree of tomatoes and chillies to the rice then add the peas and prawns and cook for a further 5 minutes. Season the rice and serve.

I always cook well .. but cook by instinct and taste .. never measure .. just do by good memory .. and of course put lots of  love into the food .. most important .. it increases the taste and nutritional value ..

And even if you dont get it right the first time, I just try it over again until it taste right.


Baked a Christmas cake once, tried a recipe but realy messed it up, soaked 1 Kilo of raisins, a kilo of sultanas and various nuts cheries & dried fruit, used a bottle of brandy and ended up with so much mixture I had enough for three cakes.

Put the first one in the oven ( the folks were away on holiday) and because it was supposed to bake for so long, when to the Pub ( spotrsmans progressed from there to the gun club) when I got home there was smoke & a blackened & burnt cake.
Ended cutting off the top, the bottom and about two inches around the edges, finally the anticipated Christmas cake fitted into a large saucer & looked more like a large bun.

If you remember Lillian Gray, when I told her the storey she kindly offered to bake the rest of the mixture ( Which turned out to be quite nice)  Lesson learnt and I didnt bake for quite a while after that.

Now making an apple struddel, is another storey on its own.

Sandy, the one I made, was so thin it covered the whole kitchen table & when filled & rolled up was too big to fit in the CDM ovens.

Had to cut it in half & coil it round to make it fit the oven. ( ended up with Two, one for work & one for home)

As I said, I needed some inspiration to start again.

Its been raining, its cold outside, the log fire is burning and its real cosy.
 Deceided to test the oven (NEVER baked in an electric oven before, too dam used to gas)

Any way, made some Corn Bread and some Bacon & Blue cheese bread.
Take a look at the pics.
