Sweet Pepper Bread (Pane ai Peperoni)
- page 158 in The Italian Baker by Carol Field
The recipe calls for 1 red bell pepper, which is roasted, chopped, sauteed in olive oil, and added to the dough. I assume this is what white_poplar meant by capsicum
, though to be sure we'll have to hear from her. (As a general term, capsicums
include both chilies and sweet peppers.)
Unfortunately, due to copyright restrictions, I can only give the ingredients. If you want the entire recipe, you'll have to get the book or perhaps white_poplar will be kind enough to post the instructions.
1 large sweet red pepper
2 TBS olive oil
1-3/4 tsp active dry yeast
1-1/4 cups warm water
3-3/4 cups (500 grams) unbleached all-purpose flour
2 tsp (10 grams) salt
