This week I made bread… following this recipe
- 3 cups lukewarm water
- 6 1/2 to 7 1/2 cups King Arthur Unbleached All-Purpose Flour*
- 1 tablespoon salt
- 1 1/2 tablespoons instant yeast
Basically I mixed it all up in my handy bread rising bucket and let it sit in the fridge for at least 2 hours (yes that’s right, no kneading needed). Normally the rules say to leave it sit to rest and rise at room temp for 2 hours, but I was crunched for time so I threw it right in the fridge instead. Basically after it had it’s time in the fridge I ripped a chunk off and let it rest and rise on a parchment paper. Then it was into the oven at 450 for about a half hour. Oh and did I mention I threw some roasted garlic in this one?
It turned out fantastic, despite the gigantic air bubble which made it even more difficult to slice into while still hot from the oven ( a bread rule I can’t seem to not break)… pretty sure I ate this loaf in a day, it was wonderful toasted with cream cheese
I had a little fun with my macro lens showing off this bread. I’m even considering possibly entering one of these shots into the Waterford Fair. Yep it’s that time of year again. Hopefully we can keep the ribbons going like last year with Luna’s shot. First I will have to decide on what images I want to enter this year, anyone have any favorite? All suggestions are up for consideration. Have a great week
