Just finished my first loaf ever. The topside is a bit burnt, the bottom stuck to the bowl I baked it in, but it is delicious! I would call it a success. I'll need some quality scraping to get that crust off my bowl.
Any hints on improving this loaf to a more presentable piece? Here was my process:
mix: 1 cup starter (consistency of thick pancake batter)
1 cup water
2 t. salt
little less than 3 cups flour (1 c. all purpose, 1 c. bread flour, and 1 c. whole wheat)
The finished dough was quite wet, I could hardly hold it without it going through my fingers. I stuck it in a bowl to rise (which I forgot to grease) and came back in about 10 hours. I didn't feel like trying to put it on a pan cause I think I might have ruined the dough, so I just stuck the ceramic bowin in at 450. After about ten minutes i brushes a generous amount of butter onthe surface, which I'm sure was too soon because the top burned way too much. Maybe next time no butter? Wait longer? Use a cookie sheet? any advice is greatly appreciated
