    Bread Making in the Double Skillet

    Our double skillet arrived this morning. Quick delivery! We needed some bread and were keen to try out its bread making potential. This is our first attempt. Quite successful, the cheap silicon bread pan was poor quality, a slightly more rigid silicon pan would no doubt improve the shape of the finished loaf. First trial was in our kitchen but should be just as easy in the van.

    Loaf made using Wrights Organic Stoneground Wholemeal Bread Mix (lots of other varieties available and you can add whatever you like once you get the hang of it. Wrights suggest adding pecans and sultanas to this mix which sounds yummy.

    Yummy! Can smell it all the way over here.

    End product looks very professional. I'll bet there wasn't much left once you had cut into it!
    Carpe diem! :)

      The best tasting bread is always a wierd shape though isn't it?
      Is that the large skillet, or the small one?

        That was the large skillet. I flipped the bread over for the last five minutes, as I do in the Remoska, but I dont think that was necessary, it just flattened the top a bit! The heat in the double skillet seemed pretty even.

          I have the small skillet and just put the bread straight into the pan and cover with clingfilm or the glass lid to let it rise. I use bread mixes as that is easier in the 'van and I also flip the skillet over for 5 mins at the end to brown the top.

          Soda bread is easy to make as well - I just put the ingredients minus liquid in a plastic bag before leaving home and mix as required. It looks a slightly strange shape but tasted very good and didn't last very long!

            I do Soda bread in the Remoska, its amazing how easy it is! Perhaps we can have a bake off one day! I was experimenting with the loaf pan because John complains that the round bread does not fit in the toaster properly. He is very fond of toast :eat:

              Sounds as if you are well-equipped for feeding the five thousand, between you.

                Mary, could I use a loaf tin in the skillet? I love the Wrights bread mixes and would like to try one when in Bridlington. I liked your silicon one but haven't seen them here although I expect I could order one from Lakeland.[other such establishments are available!].

                You loaf looked yummy, bet it didn't last long!

                  Love the enterprise and ideas here ......Can I just leap on this thread and say to people if the bread mixes work ordinary bread making should do fine as well, without the need for packets.

                  It does open up a range of possibilities.

                    The use of packets just simplifies things in the van - everything in one place without too much searching for that elusive ingredient that has hidden itself at the bottom of a dark cupboard.

                    I have made bread in the van with flour, yeast etc and I never use packets at home and do make most of the bread that we eat.

                    Wouldn't like anyone to think that I was lazy.

                      I'll admit it - I'm lazy!

                      I've often used that part baked bread in the double skillet though, the french loaf variety and that cooks a treat in there.

                        Worse then both of you in lazy stakes I have a panasonic machine! Can see the bread mixes are a good way forward.

                        I have in the past taken away premixed bread dough, a live being so to speak, in the cool box and toated it over the barbecue which worked well.... either a flattened and cooked or as little balls on sticks.

                        Just thinking around the box so to speak.

                          I'm the first to admit to being lazy... ok, Jayjay, you beat me to it, but that would spoil the expression!

                          I can see a SMH forum bread stall coming up at the Spring meet at this rate. shall we place our orders now?

                            I agree with Wendy, no weighing, no measuring, no yeast to feed .....its all in one packet and very easy. Just chuck a few packs in the van and no need to think about it again. I do use them at home too. I used to do it the 'proper' way, I even had a sour dough ferment constantly on the go. But it was like having responsibility for a child - it needed feeding every four days or it would die, created problems when I wanted to go away! Just give me a packet - but I might add a few extras here and there just to make me feel clever!

                              Hi Di - I am sure Lakeland will have a good selection. I am going to look out for a better quality one. The only ones I have seen so far are a tad too long for the skillet, if it has a rim you can of course trim it off. I found a nice strong looking 1lb one on Ebay, their 2lb one is too big. A 1lb loaf can be quite handy - would only use half a pack. (link to Ebay loaf pan)
