Baking

First of all, welcome to F. Land via Bloglovin.

I've made some more Campagne de Pain bread:
Also made some dog biscuits:
They look different to the last lot even though the recipe is the same. They are a right faff to roll out between sheets of baking parchment. Normally it doesn't stick but this time it did. Had to use extra flour which was dusted off when they were cold. I only make these once or twice a year as gifts.

Still, they are healthy, full of things that dogs can eat. There are loads of recipes for dog biscuits/treats on the web but the one I use and have adapted is this:

90 ml meat stock using 1/4 stock cube (or fresh stock if you have some)
1 cup wholemeal flour (Plain or Strong)
1/2 cup whole rolled oats
1/2 tablespoon of chopped fresh parsley
1/2 tablespoon ground linseed
1/2 grated small carrot
Up to 1 whole egg - beaten

Mix all the dry ingredients together then add the stock. Use as much of the egg as required to bring it all together. Do not make it sticky or it is near impossible to roll out.

Roll between two sheets of baking parchment, until the thickness of a coin. Cut into shapes. Place on a tray with silicone paper on it and bake at 180C for 20 - 25 minutes. Switch the oven off and leave them in it with the door open to allow them to fully dry out.

Once cold, pack into an airtight container. Use within 2 weeks or keep in the fridge where they should last up to 6 weeks. Personally, I find they never last that long. Rhonda on Down to Earth blog also has a recipe for dog biscuits/treats. I like the way she rolls hers then bakes them before breaking and finishing off. Think I might try that another time.
