You are of course quite right. Shortening the fermentation times for bread meant many more loaves could be turned out from the same footprint.

Another 'economy' from the CWP was that the lower protein British wheat could now be used. (instead of importing richer wheat from North America).

 

But on another note, @splifi , what's wrong with brown bread. Every third loaf I bake is either brown or wholemeal.

@Arnold Layne 

If any thing went wrong with the white dough, most commonly the bearing in the mixer would fail and put grease into the dough mix it would then just go into the brown.Basicly every thing that went wrong ended up as brown bread.I don’t work in bakeries any more but over time i have worked for 3 well known ones and all did the same.

Doesn't happen here. Not in the PFNC bakery! Only the finest quality ingredients baked in hygienic conditions. By me. Clean hands, no grease, arthritis but no faulty bearings!

 

I reckon you're well out the industry. Do you still bake, either artisan or home? Wanted to be a baker but my family were not best pleased. So I dropped out, turned on and became a criminal instead. Hey ho!

This is just out of the oven. If Professor Farnsbarns' invention 'the Smellivision' ever gets made you might be able to appreciate the aroma. it is intoxicating.

Oooh a bread thread wicked i used to make almost all my own bread and use a crappy part bake in reserve lol i love the nutty seedy loafs myself but plain brown is like cardboard to me,i dont eat as much bread as i used too but the ones ive not really done are the ones i love the most flatbreads,pittas,roti and them posh all butter french croissants.

 

Anybody with some great recipes for authentic west indian,or indian breads please share your secrets 

 

peace

 

have you tried hardo bread? its a slightly sweet bread from jamaica ('hard dough bread' if your googling),theres also something called bun ( jamaican spiced bun) its bread but spiced and with raisins and fruit.

 

hardo bread makes lovely hearty toast with butter and "bun&cheese"(butter and cheese) is a very popular

if you try making it make sure you follow a proper west indian recipe not one done by a white person( a genuine thing,im not racist as im mixed race anyway)
