Porcini Swirl Bread #BreadBakers

For April’s Bread Bakers bake, our theme was mushrooms.  It did not essentially must be mushroom-centric, simply mushrooms that had been hooked up to the dough or batter because it baked.  I am undecided if my first try counted, because it was double baked and the mushrooms had been baked within the second time.  And we like mushrooms, we actually do, nevertheless it took two tries for me to discover a good mushroomy bread for this month’s theme!

So my first concept was to make a mushroom cheese loaf, with mushrooms and cheese and numerous spices and butter baked right into a cross-hatch sliced entire loaf for a celebration worthy appetizer loaf.  It was very fairly and smelled great.  However we determined it will have been higher as pizza or served with a dipping sauce of some type.  Because it was only a “meh” for our household, I thought-about different choices for together with mushrooms in bread and determined to include mushroom “flour”, which is simply powdered dried mushrooms, right into a swirl sort bread.  This bread was attention-grabbing to me as a result of it used the scalded flour technique.  It’s akin to a tangzhong and supplies comparable boosts to the softness of a loaf, however a faster technique.

The ensuing loaf yielded a sturdy sandwich bread, barely on the savory facet however nonetheless amenable to toast and jam and equally comfy as a savory grill or sandwich.  I needed to offer slightly extra distinction to the swirl than the mushrooms alone would offer and so I added slightly Pero (instantaneous espresso substitute) for shade.  My intuition instructed me espresso and mushrooms had been a appropriate combine and certainly after trying on the Taste Bible, it does listing porcini and occasional collectively!  Woohoo!
