Bread Making Wars

Nutella, pb, pretzel loaf - yummm

The title is supposed to sound like some show popular on television today. I was able to hold off the Craft Wars session but gave into and possibly suggested having a bread making war.

I made fresh dough - buttermilk recipe from Artisan Bread in Five Minutes A Day. Split it in 1/3s, and gave Reid and her two friends each a bowl with their 1/3 of the dough. They had at it. Reid went with Nutella, peanut butter and pretzels. The next child decided on white chocolate chips, mint chocolate chips, marshmallows and brown sugar and the the last girl put tomato sauce, pizza seasoning, mozzerella cheese and pepperoni.

There was a 2 hour wait for the dough to rise. Then another 40 minutes after forming the dough into a ball. Then baked them all together for about 35 minutes. Fortunately, they were all at a softball game when the baking was done and I got
to dive into a little slice of each with a little slather
of butter. WOW! Fantastic all 3 of them!

I had to give each girl a prize for PRIZE 1: the
best ingredients, PRIZE 2: the best tasting,
PRIZE: 3 the best dessert loaf. I couldn't call
one a winner and the rest losers.
