Your um-brother and um-sister, and affiliated children?
Alternately, mail it to your daughters.
I figured there would be volunteers. ;-)
If ya feel like mailing some to Florida, I'll volunteer my household. I'll even do a homemade soap for bread trade. We'd just need to figure out the whole shipping and keeping it fresh thing.
Yeah, the fresh thing is a challenge.
I have a similar problem; I would bake much more than I could eat. Fortunately I have a local bottomless pit^W^W friend who is happy to devour 75% of a loaf in a sitting and take the rest for breakfast...
I can generally bake two loaves a week and see the majority of that disappear, but three loaves all at once would be a challenge.
The loaf you sent home with me got devoured within days. ;)
Yay! Glad you guys liked it!
Do you ever do any baking with non-wheat flours?
I haven't at this point. I figure I'll get through the BBA breads and then see what other challenges are out there.
We have the same problem. My hubby LOVES to bake, but there's only three of us and we're all trying to keep our weight down (hubby himself is doing great on WeightWatchers). We currently have 3 loaves of bread, two pies, a dozen cookies and a bag of homemade pizzeles waiting.
That's a problem lots of people would like to have!
well, if you were thinking of maybe coming up to ConFusion, I'm sure you could get rid of some of it there. I know I'd be happy to relieve you of a loaf.....
We WILL be at ConFusion! I hadn't considered baking bread for the con.
There are times you make me sorely wish I didn't live in Texas...O.O
I'm trying to use my powers to draw all the awesome people to Cleveland. That's my secret plan.
While it's generally not too hard to find some people to eat some bread on occasion, finding enough people to eat a lot of bread on a regular basis can be a challenge. You may need to resign yourself to sacrificing some experiments to the bread gods.
For the record, were I in range, I'd more than happily try your breads.
Most of them find good homes, I am happy to say.
When the heck are we going to get those Transporters installed? Fresh from the oven bread is pure delight!
Maybe if we explain to scientists that fresh bread is at stake, they will be truly motivated.
For breads that bake on a sheet, could you just half the recipe? It wouldn't work at all for loaves, unless you can either find a freaky half loaf plan or make an oven-safe insert you could put in. Even if the insert is not exactly wide enough, it it is close enough then adding aluminium foil between the insert and the dough should prevent most leakage (or just shove foil in along the sides to prevent leakage). My googles only seem to come up with half height pans, which isn't what you want.
I've never tried this, but if you had half loaves you two could probably demolish a loaf every two days.
These are baking in the Dutch oven, so no doubling up for cooking.
I've tried to make smaller loaves and thusfar have failed at the effort.
you bring the bread, we'll make the soup :)
We will have to arrange a date sometime soon!
Have you read 52 Loaves? It's about a guy experimenting with breadmaking. He does the scientific testing for you and makes you laugh like a loon in the process. Highly recommended.
I did read it. A very fun book.
