This is the simplest recipe I use when I just want some good bread without all the kneading etc, but you will need a breadmaker with a dough setting. Thanks to my friend Cedar for this one.
|Flour||800 grams||28.24 oz||100.00%|
|Water||500 grams||17.65 oz||62.50%|
|Starter||150 grams||5.3 oz||18.75%|
|Salt||15 grams||0.53 oz||1.88%|
Total Flour Weight: 800 grams
Percentages are relative to flour weight (flour equals 100%) and every other ingredient is a percentage of this. Flour from the starter is not counted. This recipe was originally in grams and has been converted to other measures.
Add all this to the breadmaker, I add water first so the flour doesn't stick to the bottom of the pan, then press 'start'.
My dough cycle takes 1hr.
I then pour / wrestle the super-sticky dough out with a spatula onto a well floured surface, cut and shape it into whatever sizes I want, then leave to proof for between 3-8hrs.
I like to bake using SourDom's steam method.
