Rise & Shine! It’s Breakfast Breads Time!
NOTE: This class was moved from Sat 11/9.
Our own resident Alton Brown of bread-making, Paul McCool (I want that to be MY last name, don’t you?) shows how to get up on the right side of the bed with a 4-hour class on breakfast breads, including the famous SCONE! In addition. you’ll learn his “I Can’t Believe I Just Did That!” Chopped Apple Bread – one of his all-time favorites.
Paul is eager to share the “how’s” and “why’s” as he takes you through the science of bread-making. You’ll learn much from this charming baker including essential measuring and kneading techniques as well as guidelines for shaping and baking all types of breads.
Starting with the versatile scone (the 'o' sounds more like "gone" than "cone") is usually baked in an oven these days but you'll learn how to make them on a griddle, too.
During class 4-hour class, we’ll learn the techniques for combining the ingredients, for kneading, for shaping, and for baking the scones. Most importantly, we will learn how to handle the dough (lightly!) and when to stop (sooner than you think!). And, we will talk about things that we can do to customize scones to enjoy with savory and sweet foods (that’s the versatile part!).
Then there's that “I Can’t Believe I Just Did That” Chopped Apple Bread--sweet, cinnamon-y yeasted goodness loaded with apples and nuts. It's way better than any Monkey Bread ever dreamed of being (sorry, Monkey Bread), and you can make it up the night before and bake it for breakfast. How's that for convenient?
Note: If you live more than a 30-45 minute drive from CCKC, bring a small cooler with you to carry your dough home without it over-fermenting
