Munch Munch

Just realized that I have not been baking breads for quite some time. I think my weekends have been pretty busy since I came back from my short trip. So searching through my recipes, I decided on making Italian Grissini - breadsticks.

This is my second attempt at these breadsticks, the first using a recipe from Ultimate Bread. For this round, it's combining BBA's recipe for Lavash Crackers and UB's techinique to make these crunchy sticks.

A look at the interior, which is slightly chewy due to a longer fermentation time.


These breadsticks are lovely to munch on its own, but I like them with soup. Here I serve the herb-flavoured with the Roasted Pumpkin soup which I made earlier(I froze a few portions).

I also made some mini pleated ones and dotted them with black sesame seeds. Cute eh?

I love to dip warm breadsticks in whipped butter. The butter melts slightyl and it just becomes this ultra fragrant and aromatic greasy snack haha.

To the person who has been leaving nonsense comments touting pornography, you know who you are, and I KNOW WHO YOU ARE! If you have so much time, get a job, or better still, GET A LIFE, otherwise you'll be rotting soon.

To all the readers of my blog, what was left on my comments page is so vulgar that they're not something I wish you all to see, hence I will not publish them. It's sad that this person is still dwelling in her nonsense.

Amrita said...

Angie, dont be upset by such idiots who have so much free time. There's been one on my blog too. These people are just very desperate for attention and should be shot XD

Take care

Nice bread sticks! Haha, I still haven't tried baking bread till now, just now sucha bread person. Btw, is there any bread which do not contain wheat?

gattina said...

hey pal!
greeting from Roma!
I really like the back light of the first shot, and it's an attractive angle you took!
Maybe I make pizza (long fermentation type) regularly, so I take a small portion of its dough and turn into bread sticks. Also it's another good way to judge if the oven hot enough for baking pizza. Your bread sticks really look good from inside to outside, chewy type is always my favorite!!! Wait a sec, I thought you saved that power soup for me huh?!?!?! No more left now ;p
Sorry to hear about "her" still getting no life! Anything I can do Angie? Please let me know!

Jolene, Ari, YD, thanks! :)

YD, yes, there are wheat-free bread recipes. But these usually utilizes substitute ingredients which may not be so readily available eg spelt flour, xanthan gum etc. You may be interested to check these sites:
