In celebration of Spring, which always seems a long time coming here in the Midwest, I’ve posted a video of Denyce making an awesome strawberry rhubarb pie. As the former owner/operator of Busy Bee Bakery, she does have a knack for making fine things consisting primarily of flour, sugar and butter.
A warning is in order though. Unless you actually want to learn to bake a great pie, this one is a bit on the long side. Nonetheless, you’ll hopefully find a worthy tip or two in there somewhere.
More in line with the main theme of Breadtopia, I’ve also produced a 100% whole wheat bread video. The recipe is from King Arthur Flour’s sorta new book on whole grain baking. They modestly refer it as “the Holy Grail of 100% whole wheat bread”. That certainly caught my attention. It’s no doubt one of the lightest all whole grain breads I’ve made, and fairly simple too.
In the next video installment, I’ll document my attempt at duplicating what many consider to be the real Holy Grail of whole grain (sourdough) bread plus a short video on one of my latest no-knead sourdough favorites.
Feel free to contribute your comments, corrections, questions and baking wisdom. I thoroughly enjoy the interaction I’ve had with many of you over the past few months.
