Since Chef John posted pretzels this past week, I decided to try my hand at lye bread. First time! Pretzels ended up a bit small and slightly lumpy, but apart from that, exactly like I would’ve wanted. Also: not hard to do at all, just a little more work because of dumping them in the lye before baking.

I just want to pop into this thread and say that I love all y'all's buns.

(I should try making bread sometime. Maybe this is how I get around the "no one does döner in a bread pocket here" cravings.)

So, since it's december, let's go nuts and start the cookie factory... also while the oven is hot, why not throw a tiny little sourdough 15% whole weat thing in there. look at that thing, that exploded real nice! i am shocked myself :D

NEXT!
Tried my hand at panettone and after failing miserably (and predictably) the first time round, I decided to go again for mini muffin panettone’s. Not quite the right texture*, but the flavors are all there and they look the part, as well. So yay and let’s never do that again ever!

* still mostly made of air, so that’s alright! That’s about 15 muffin sized panettone from 200g of flour (maybe 220 if we count the sourdough starter).
