Yummy, Yummy, Yum
Oh, please try the bread that I posted in the recipe yesterday. It is seriously good. Great. And all you have to do is be active in its creation for like 5 minutes, maybe. I read about a lady making this very same bread with one of her arms in a sling. It really is a bread that you could make one-handed. How is that for easy?
Yesterday at about noon, I stirred the ingredients together, as the recipe directed. Then, today before leaving for church, I turned it out, let it rest, and then shaped it before leaving. When we returned from church, I heated the oven with my cast iron dutch oven inside for 30 minutes, and then plopped the dough in the pan and put the pan back in the oven. What emerged was an amazing artisan-type bread. It was crunchy on the outside and wonderfully chewy on the inside. The only change that I’m going to try is using bread flour next time just so that I can see the difference. Besides that I wouldn’t change a thing.
As usual, I didn’t stop to take a picture of my bread. But there are lots of people who have posted their pictures of bread made by this recipe on Flickr. Here is one. I’m making it again tomorrow.
