The Bread Thread

Does exactly what it says on the tin. Some of the nonsense contained herein may be very loosely related to The Sisters of Mercy, but I wouldn't bet your PayPal account on it. In keeping with the internet's general theme nothing written here should be taken as Gospel: over three quarters of it is utter gibberish, and most of the forum's denizens haven't spoken to another human being face-to-face for decades. Don't worry your pretty little heads about it. Above all else, remember this: You don't have to stay forever. I will understand.

But really? - no crumpets in Hungary?! :eek:

Well they would, were it not for the Tea n'Toast Treaty of 1597 which brought to an end more than 200 years of religious genocide between FUCT and FuCT (Freiheit für unser Charred Toast) over whose doctrine held sway in the kitchens of christendom. The treaty provides demarcation in order to keep the peace - FUCT rules over the kettle (electric and stove-top, incidentally), teapot, mugs, cups, tea (loose and bag), teaspoons, and issues fatwas governing the correct sequence of the tea-making process. FuCT's dominion extends to all bread and bread-related products (teacakes, scones, pikelets, muffins, crumpets, farls etc.) regardless of whether these are of the traditional wheat flour type or not, sideplates, knives, spreads (jams, curds, marmites, butters, marmalades), and in some cases clotted creams) and the correct order of application of same to the bread.

You will need to refer to FuCT edict 52-58935 to determine whether your toast-making contravenes scripture, but speaking for myself it's a 3 if you're making a club-type sammidge and 4 when you're going for toast and spread. I honestly don't know what the FUCT a 6 is - presumably this is only for when the bread has died and you're cremating it? And the only suitable conveyance for bacon (and indeed sausage) is the cheapest white bread available, untoasted - why? Because untoasted bread will absorb the fat from the bacon/sossidge, while toast will not, resulting in the grease dripping down your shirt. Simples.

Now, while it is true that I am not a member of FuCT, the two organisations do have an agreement whereby if a member of one sees someone transgressing the tenets of the other then they are encouraged to wade in and set things right.

So, young feller-me-lad, if you're toasting bagels I should warn you that FuCT's more militant members may appear on your doorstep with a cunningly-contrived Breville with toasting trays that are precisely the same size and shape as your clockweights. I think you get the ideas.

Of course we all know that the greatest heresy (apart from dunking) in the bread or biscuit world is using teabags and/or putting milk in tea. I have a brother of sorts in Torqteamada. Ahem.

I actually enjoy it burnt. But the butter needs to be soft or it shatters when spreading.
:eek:
I couldn't eat burnt toast like that, might as well mix coal dust with butter and eat that. :lol:

Crumpets are simply wonderful, I have been known to cane a pack in one sitting.
As for toast if processed bread then brown and quite dark, under fried eggs no spread but HP on top.

crumpets.
before toasting cut a slit in the edge, to about half way, like a pitta. after toasting, insert butter.

That's cheating.
Piping hot out of the toaster/ grill > knob of butter on top > brief wait > insert in gob.

Could you insert something like peanut butter before toasting so you got a lovely warm gooey centre? It would be like biting into a fresh jam donut (except with peanut butter, and I suspect that if you put jam in there it would achieve plasma-like qualities).

peanut butter insertion may knacker your toaster.
oi! putting the butter inside reduces the wait time AND increases the butter amount.

Well, knackering your toaster is certainly better than toasting your knackers.

But if you only make a small incision in the crumpet, and then wiggle the knife about inside so you create a little pocket, carefully insert the peanut butter and make sure you put the crumpet in incision-side up, it should be ok, right?

I may have put way too much thought into this, but I'm totally willing to risk my toaster to try it. Now, where did I put those crumpets...?
