Dan Lepard’s onion and bay loaf (rolls)

with 4 comments

My entry to one of the Bake-Offs with recipes from The handmade loaf by Dan Lepard.

Very crusty, very good. I made half a recipe and shaped the dough into five rolls weighing approx. 110g each in their uncooked state. Baked with “slow steam”, i.e. putting a bowl of water in the oven prior to heating it. Had one with a steamy midnight soup, a favorite of mine.

Lentil soup

  • 1 carrot, 1 leek, 1 onion, a piece of celeriac
  • 1.5-2.5 litres water
  • 200g brown lentils, ready to be cooked (either by soaking them or using tender lentils)
  • knob of butter, 2 tbsp oil, sea salt, pepper, pinch of herbs de provence
  • 2 Wiener, smoked or air-cured sausages (optional)

Chop the vegetables and put them into a hot pan together with the butter. Saute for 7 minutes. Add lentils, cook for 2 minutes, then add water. Simmer for 30-40 minutes or until lentils are done. Soup should not be too thick. Season, add the chopped sausages, serve.

  2. Yes, it’s just old folks who eat this bread at lunch time or even breakfast with a soft boiled egg. Your rolls are so-oo beautiful Nils, the zig zag slash is really great and the soup sounds good too!

    • Oh I don’t mind the “Full English” at 7am, but onions for breakfast tastes really strange to me. I should toughen up to even more savory breakfasts.
