This week its the turn of grated Beetroot and some strong cheese, Cornish Tickler to be precise. I had brought a pack of cooked beetroot and intended to use the liquid as well.
|250g grated beetroot and 25 g water from the pack|
|100 g cheese, in cubes|
So the actual formula was:-
20 g Coarse Semolina,
50g Olive Oil,
250g grated Beetroot with 25 g liquid,
100g Cheese, in cubes,
I mixed everything together and kneaded in my Kenwood for 5 minutes on low speed. Then I put it in the oven to prove as usual.
This involves putting a pan of boiling water in the base of the oven and adding the dough in a bowl. I then turn the oven to MAX for 1 minute ONLY, to create a warm, wet atmosphere. I then ignore the oven for 90 minutes. It seems to work as well as the £140 prover they sell in Lakeland.
After they had proved I shaped them into tins,
and left them for another hour.
They then had 30 minutes at 220°C with steam.
and after letting them cool, I cut a slice, hoping to get a piece of cheese.
and I did!
