I’m good. Yes, I’m patting myself on the back for baking AND writing three posts this week. And I have the burn from a 500° F oven on my hand to prove it.
The next bread for me to bake from the Bread Baker’s Apprentice as part of the Challenge was Lavash Crackers. Instead of making the crackers, I decided to make the optional pitas. The recipe yielded six 2-ounce pitas. Which wasn’t enough because these were so delicious. Not dry, like store-bought pitas. Fluffy and light, these were perfect.
Baking pitas is fun too. You roll them in balls and then flatten them into 1/4″ thick circles. Toss them on the baking stone (it’s here where I burnt my hand). Watch them as they bake and as soon as they puff up and form pita balloons, you count to 10 and then they are done.
