It was lovely, I can think of loads of things I could put in there next time, bacon and leeks come to mind,
I decided to make Paul Hollywoods savoury brioche couronne, but after I’d measured out the flour I found I only had one egg, the butter was still in the fridge and the milk was skimmed and still partially frozen, so that idea went out the window and I made up the dough with water and olive oil instead, 500g strong white bread flour, 10g yeast, tsp salt, a good glug of olive oil and enough water to make a dough and hoped for the best..
When the dough had risen I cut it in half and with one half I made
I didn’t knock the dough back, as stated in the recipe, I just rolled it into a rectangle and topped it with mozzarella, prosciutto and olives, a few bits of fresh basil and some seasoning.
Then I rolled it in on itself from both sides.
all the way up..
and cut it down the middle.
and then it was just a case of carefully twisting it up
and shaping it into a ring, leaving it to rise again for about an hour, egg washing it and sprinkling it with Parmesan.
Then I baked it for half an hour.
I did a few roast peppers to go with it..
Then cut it up..
It was lovely, I can think of loads of things I could put in there next time, bacon and leeks come to mind, I saved a couple of pieces for breakfast….
I cut the remaining dough in half again, stuck half in the fridge to make naan with for the following evening and then I made a
Sweet mixed fruit & spice couronne:
I baked this for about 20 minutes, when it came out
I drizzled it with a little icing sugar mixed with toffee vodka..
I would have liked to have taken some nice pictures of it, but I couldn’t wait to eat some..
It was gorgeous, definitely going to do that again..
All in all, total compensation for the chicken fiasco the night before..
