Breezy Bread: Pide by Majnouna Breezy Bread: Pide by Majnouna

More recipes in my folder: Quick Food, Not Fast Food. Info on the book: Quick Food, Not Fast Food: the book! by Majnouna

THINK BEFORE YOU TYPE. Read the recipe and description in full and try to use your brain (+ google, wikipedia etc) before asking something dickish or lazy, or you'll be ignored.

To mix it up a bit, I have some bread recipes to post! Bread naturally takes longer to make than the recipes I normally post (in terms of waiting for it to rise, not in terms of active work on it), but it's a very rewarding process. I've noticed that many people are scared of making bread at home, under the impression that it's too complex for the average mortal. Well! It's true that to achieve baguettes just like the baker's requires a special kind of dedication, training and ingredients, but there are hundreds of kinds of bread around the world, most of which do not require any special expertise or equipment, just patience, love of working the dough with your hands, and a regular kitchen oven. No breadmaker needed!

And to begin with, this Turkish bread entirely made, left to rise, and then baked while I had friends over – we devoured it as soon as it came out of the oven, but I managed to snap a photo...

Oh! 'Senpai' refers to someone who has been apart of the same work/trade/organization/etc. longer than the person saying it. Racing Girl Emoji (Heart shot wink) [V3]

you mentioned below that this bread is brioche like, but I want to check: will this go nicely with your lemon curd recipe?

You can pick up yeast anywhere... Plus it's one of those pantry essentials.

A question if I may?
Instead of using fennel and sesame seeds, am I able to coat it with brown sugar and cinnamon to make it a sweeter bread or add garlic and sea-salt into it?
Reply

Majnouna Featured By Owner Feb 2, 2014  Professional General Artist
I think you could certainly try! Brown sugar and cinnamon sounds yummy, in this case you may want to add a bit more sugar inside (depending how sweet you want it). But if you want to push it in the garlic and sea salt direction, I think I'd eliminate the sugar and replace the milk with water, even though that might change the texture a bit. The original version is slightly brioche-like and that may be weird with garlic!

Okay c:
Oh, and would baking soda be a reasonable substitute for this?

You can substitute yeast with baking soda, but  that will make for a completely different texture. In fact, pastries made with baking soda tend to go more towards cake than bread.

For the milk and sugar? No not at all, just curious but what do you think baking soda does?

Oh, it's just from past experiences on this.
Whenever my parents don't have yeast, we usually use baking soda as a substitute and it usually works out.
But I managed to find some yeast, and the bread came out very good c:

Ahh instead of the yeast, I see, I wouldn't have thought of using that in bread, but it's interesting to note.

I wouldn't use baking soda. It always seems to have a strange taste to it. Wink/Razz

as i can see, it's more a cake than a bread, so, probably than ti can work too!
taste it first and try to figure whats it's gonna taste with your brown sugar or garlic
