They already have one of those.

If it's Sunbeam, it's good.

.. Except if you read the article, Flowers has only agreed to be the initial bidder at a court-sponsored auction on February 28th, which means they are still subject to other bids and even if there are no other bids, they still have to be approved by the bankruptcy judge.

So, not yours.

Flowers is the company the saved Tastykake, and since Flowers is GA based, that means a lot more Tastykake down here, so they're OK in my book.

/still more Tastykake varities up north, though

Their Smart Wheat didn't have HFSC. My wife was mad when we had to find a different bread without it.

Bread recipes anyone??

I usually make this recipe
3-4 cups quick oats
Tbsp salt
1.5 tbsp yeast
2 tbsp brown sugar
.5-1 cup Ground flax
3 cup water
Tbsp oil
Add whole wheat until right consistency
Bake at 425 for 35. Makes 2 loaf

Oh good, my wife has been eating my Ding Dongs.

That seems awfully healthy.

2 1/2 cup unbleached bread flour
1/2 cup pure whole grain flour

1/2 cup white sugar / raw honey
with a tbsp yeast dissolved in
1 cup warm water / milk

knead well, let raise covered with towel 1 hour in pan
350 for 30
makes the best toast and french toast you ever had
 
2013-01-12 02:31:39 PM
^^ oops forgot the 2/3 cup oil
 
2013-01-12 02:33:17 PM
^^ and tbsp salt... I think that's it...

Every time I make bread it comes out incredibly dense. Is that a product of not enough rise time, too much flour, too much kneading, or a combination of those? I'd love a recipe for a nice light Italian bread if you Farkers have one

Are you using bread flour?

Mine. Works for pizza crust, bread or pretzels as noted below:
1.5C water, approx. 100deg. F
1 Packet of yeast
1TBS Sugar (or brown sugar, honey, I use barley malt syrup for proper tasting pretzels)
4C Unbleached bread flour (alternatively sub with 1C whole wheat flour for either bread or pizza crust)
2TBS vegetable oil (I usually use olive oil)
1.5TSP salt (garlic salt for pizza crust)
2TBS wheat gluten flour for chewiness/ stretchiness if desired

I proof the yeast and mix everything in a food processor then knead, split in half and rise in oil coated bowls covered with plastic wrap, knead again and either toss for pizza crusts, form into loaves and let rise again for bread or cut into 12 and roll into ropes for pretzels.

Bake @400 for bread, 425 for pretzels or 450 for pizza (don't ask why the different temps. I have no idea)

The only acceptable uses for white bread are packing around C-4 to direct the explosive force and making cinnamon toast.

Hoping it includes the San Francisco Sourdough Bakery Group that Hostess owned (Colombo, Parisian and Toscana. That was the only good sourdough bread you could get at a supermarket. Since Hostess shut down they have been off the shelf and only store brands and Bimbo brands (Francisco-bad in my opinion, and San Luis-mediocure in my opinion) are left.

Have you tried cinnamon toast with a dark pumpernickel? It's a-w-e-s-o-m-e

White bread is best used frozen and as a club for use in mugging old ladies at night.

The preservatives in Schwebels Giant white bread are a testament to science. I had a loaf of it in college for something like 3 months and it was just as soft and tasted just the same as it did when I bought it.

"$30 million for the Beefsteak brand. "

Damn, didn't realize I was this close to losing my Jew bread.

/love their rye

Anyone here tried the Tartine method? I got a somewhat decent loaf, but eventually gave up. Creating your own yeast turns your kitchen into a stinky, floury mess.
