Sriracha bread?

So I've been baking my own whole wheat breads lately. Last week I did a garlic, jalapeño, cheddar loaf. The week before I did a garlic, salt loaf.

I want to make a bread using sriracha. What should I add into it to compliment it?

For clarification, this is sriracha.

ARGH! I suck at bread. <pout> lucky dog.

But, I would almost think you'd lose the sriracha flavor in a bread, and may have to add more to it, so I don't think it would come out well. huh.

But then - Tude does not know breads - other foods fine.

Here's what I ended up making last night.

Both are whole wheat, one is plain and the other is blueberry cinnamon.

I made the dough a lot looser than my previous batches, actually by accident. The previous couple times (literally only two times) I made bread I formed them into ciabattas, this time I ended up going for full on loaves. I quite like how they turned out. I finally got a killer ratio of dough to water for whole wheat flour.

Tude, there's nothing to be afraid of about baking bread! For regular white bread you just use 5 parts flour to 3 parts water, a bit of salt (1/4 tsp), and a bit of yeast (1 tsp or so, heat up the water to 110 and add a couple tsp sugar to give the yeast something to eat). If you want the rest of the recipe I use, let me know and I'll either post it or pm it to ya.

I never, ever got my dough to rise properly. Heh - the last time I said to heck with it - rose a little - put it in the oven. hehe - that think hit the garbage pail with a 10 lb thud! I could have used it as a weapon!

My first loaf was really, really dense. The trick is to get the yeast to be happy, which means using warm water (I get mine to 115º) and adding a few teaspoons of sugar.

I mix my dry ingredients, get the water I'll need and put a little in a coffee mug. I microwave the mug until it's at temperature, add the yeast and sugar, then add that to the dry stuff, then rest of the water.

You want the dough to be reasonably warm, it helps keep the yeast happy.

Usually, for whole wheat, let it rise an additional 1/2 hour in the final rise as well.

For some reason, this episode of I Love Lucy comes to mind.

If you let the yeast/water mix proof for 10 minutes or so before adding it to the flour, it's real happy.

You could try a little lime juice and garlic with the sriracha. If you want a lingering citrus flavor, add a little lemon zest. Fresh basil might also be nice, for a Thai-Vietnamese inspired flavor.

You could also try reducing the sriracha to a thicker paste, and make a "sriracha" roll in the manner of cinnamon rolls, spreading srirachi paste instead of brown sugar and cinnamon, rolling up into a loaf. Reducing sriracha might be difficult, requiring constant stirring because it will be easy to burn, and standing over cooking sriracha sauce might be tough on the eyes and nose. But, you're accustomed to a little fire, so this should be no problem.

Good idea! I think lime, sriacha, and either basil or bay leaves might create something good.

A sriracha roll...that sounds interesting. I'll get there someday. Next month.

I'm enjoying it so far. It's a nice way to help keep what I consume in check.

baking bread is a sure way to bring disappointment, despair and rage into your life. what makes it worse is that you have to wait full of expectation for the inevitable let down. don't do it.

the history of bread making

1) excitement at first try
2) disappointment
3) repeat again and again hoping next time it would be different
4) obsession
5) rage
6) therapy
7) medication

don't say i didn't warn you.

Normally I only eat sriracha with pho (Vietnamese beef noodle soup). You could try any of the veggies that accompany that soup, and/or the ingredients of the soup as well. I also mix sriracha with hoisin sauce 1:1 in a small bowl for dipping the meat in. It's like Vietnamese ketchup lol.

That is how I discovered this stuff. I've fallen in love with it and use it quite often.
