Long time no post... as you might remember we've been moving this summer and just as our internet and phone was back up it went away again - the horror!
But of course I've been baking just the same (well not quite the same after I started teachers seminarium again late august, it's not as easy to find the time, especially for the danish rye that needs 3 hours in the oven...)
I wasn't quite happy with my white sourdough bread so I've been focusing on finding a basic white recipe that worked for me - and tasted great.
I've been a bad girl and haven't taken any pictures of my attempts... but I did remember to do a few snapshots of the last loaf I made:
I've ended up modifying Teresa's coastal loaf recipe and I'm very exited about the bread it produces! So tasty with a chewy crumb and heavenly golden crust. I'm not sure my snapshots really does the crust justice...
I've also found a good schedule that fits my daily routine - it includes 24 hours in the fridge, something I think helps develops the great taste of the bread.
I'm still struggling with slashing the bread but as you can see Bill's lame helped a LOT!
(I'm also still struggling with my new oven, damn piece of crap...)
