Classic Bread (uses some SD starter)
« Reply #30 on: January 04, 2016, 02:45:31 am »
I love making this bread in the hot weather. I take the SD starter out of the fridge when I get up. Feed it. It's all bubbly and ready to use mid or late morning. I make the bread, let it rise and it's usually cooked by late afternoon. The hot weather does have some advantages.  ;D
This is the latest loaf.

You have that recipe down pat cookie.  This hot weather has to be good for something but why is it that I only want to make bread when it's cold LOL.

Very nice Cookie.
Yes it is lovely making SD in the hot weather but not the cooking bit.

I've just  made another loaf of this and this time I used the starter directly from the fridge. It worked beautifully. I will adjust the recipe.

I mixed in sesame, sunflower seeds and some pepitas while kneading and ended up with this wonderful loaf, Thanks Cookie :) I even used the bread cutter aid so not so embarassing slices this time ;)

Lovely looking loaf thermilover.

You're going great guns thermilover and I love how that gadget enables you to cut even slices.

Fantastic Thermilover, I'm thrilled for you. I always put seeds in mine, depending on what I have. I often put 70/80g of rye or spelt flour too. ( included as part of the 500g).

When I made this yesterday I found I had to go out for a few hours mid rise. After the first rise, I knocked it down and put it in the bread tin, covered it and then refrigerated it. When I came home several hours later I took it out of the fridge and left it to rise. When it had risen enough I baked it and it is lovely, as usual.

Cookie, that is great.  Love it when the Bread can be made to fit our timetable. This certainly is a lovely loaf.
Thermilover, lovely loaf. Nice slices.
