My Favorite Bread!

After last Monday's bread fail, I should probably share a successful baking episode.  This is my favorite bread to make.  It takes some planning, because it has to rise for at least 18 hours (at least in my cold house) and then another two, but if you make it in the morning and then bake it the next day, it works perfectly. 

I follow this recipe.  To the letter.  Here's the play-by-play. 

Yeast in the bowl-
With all the flour and salt (I use 1/2 WW and 1/2 UB White)-
Mixed and risen-
Folded and rested-
After the final rise-
Baked to perfection-
I forgot to score the bread, so it cracked, but let me tell you, it still tastes wonderful!

  1. Mmmmm...looks lovely and you made it sound so easy to make. All you need is a lovely bowl of homemade soup and supper is ready!

  2. Mmm. Looks so tasty! I've had an itch to start my own sour dough starter. Have you ever done it?

    Not yet! I did the "Artisan Bread in 5 minutes a day" thing for a while, and at the end it starts to be a little like sourdough, but I haven't done it for real yet. We should totally try it!

    Yeah! Why don't we do it together, with the same starter recipe and then we can compare results! I found one on Breadtopia that looks like it might work.

    Want to try it? Let me know what day you want to start!

  5. That bread looks wonderful, I will be bookmarking that recipe!
