In many recipes the measurements are volumetric. Such as Liters, milliliters, cups, quarts etc. Rather than in weight measurements such as kg, gram, lbs and oz. If you know the recipe, or is somebody who does not have a weight, it's a fine shortcut to do it this way. But it is not without problems using volumetric measurements of flour instead of weight. Here I show why.

Video Recipe - We knead bread for three reasons. The first is very simply to mix the ingredients together. The second is that the mixing promotes the formation of the gluten in the flour. It makes the dough more elastic. The third is to bootstrap the fermentation. In this video I show a basic principle that can be used for any type of dough, and how to implement it for dough with different amounts of hydration. I also demonstrate what gluten is, and what it does in a bread.

Brownies basically just is another variation of a pound cake. It has a bit more sugar. Some of the flour replaced with nuts, it has a bit less baking powder and added cocoa. But these small changes are enough to make the brownie a cake of its own. It is dense and heavy, more confetionery than cake. Sweet and strong. Lovely!

Video recipe - it is well known that we danes have a hampering for danish pastry. Even our breakfast bread is often made from this. There is the classic "poppy" (birkes) that is a non sweet danish pastry with a load of poppy seed on top. Hence the name. And there is the "copenhagen poppy / tea poppy" where the pastry is a bit sweeter and there is almond remonce for filling. It is not quite a cake and not quite a breakfast roll. But very good none the less.

Video recipe - Some of the most difficult types of bread to bake are those made of laminated dough. Also called a viennese dough here in Denmark. Amusingly it is called "Danish pastry" in most of the rest of the world. The ultimate challenge is the croissant. It is very honest and has no filling, no remonce, no glaze or other things that can hide one's flaws. There are many ways of doing it, with different amounts of "rolling-butter", number of butter layers etc. This recipe is the one I think is the best version for beginners and experienced bakers alike.

The "French" bread we make most often here in Denmark, is a typical white bread that is quick to make, but taste of very little. It is not a classic long fermented bread recipe, and can have a tendency to taste slightly yeasty. If you want to avoid that, then this recipe is closer to the classic French bread. Slowly fermented and with a pre ferment. It is not really any more difficult to make, but it must be planned a little ahead of time, as there are some long fermentation periods along the way. So for some people it is impractical for everyday use. But great for a weekend where you want to make "the ultimate French bread".

Laminated bread is made by making a normal bun dough and then folding it in layers with butter in between. There are different ways to do this.

This should enable you to "understand" laminated bread instead of just following a recipe.

My favorite however is absolutely a thin crust Margherita with homemade tomato sauce, basil and buffalo mozzarella ... and then maybe just a little meat ... and then just a little onion ... and perhaps ...
