KEVIN--YOUR BREAD RECIPE

Hey Kevin
Which bread recipe of yours goes with your Avatar pic you have showing? It looks perfect!

I'm waiting for my new bread machine to come in the mail this week. If you guys can believe it -I lost my last one. yup-lost it-can't find where I put it. :blush: Oh well. A new one is coming.

Please remember that this recipe was not developed with a bread machine in mind.

I use Kevin's recipe all the time in my bread machine. I only changed a couple of things, I add 2 Tablespoons of oil and 2 tsp. of sugar.

I have three recipes of Kevin's breads that I use. The one that I like most for sandwiches and toast is the King Arthur's white wheat mix. The one that I like most for hamburger buns is the lc pita bread recipe. (Don't turn it into pitas!)

The pita recipe is the closest to melt-away high carb bakery rolls I've ever tasted. My only beef is that I have a really hard time getting it to rise the way I'd like it to. But I'm still working on that :P

Between our house and my in-laws I make 2 dozen pita recipe buns a week. At 3 carbs each, it is such a carb bargin and so close tasting to high carb bread that I have a hard time seeing a reason to try other lc bread-like recipes that are basically the same or more carbs. JMO

I feel much the same way about your wonderful pita buns.

You would probably be amused at my attempts, however. Saturday I made a double batch of dough for the hot dog buns. I made sixteen rolls and they never really rose. Kinda turned out like breadsticks. I was frustrated because I've had this recipe turn out well for me so many times before... so yesterday I made a single batch and turned them into six hot dog buns.

Well, I forgot about them completely for about five hours, and when I came upstairs they were the size of hoagie rolls!

However, I'm undaunted, because on my menu this week is zucchini pasta with breadsticks, and hoagies :P

Thank you for making my kitchen a place of wonderment--and occasional disaster :P

Today was bun day so for kicks and giggles I tried your subs Rose with the pita bun recipe.

I liked the results. Same taste but a little less rise with a densier heavier bread.

Next time I will try it in a loaf.....this may be the answer to the pita recipe falling as a loaf.
