Classic Bread (uses some SD starter)
« Reply #46 on: April 18, 2016, 08:38:58 am »
I made a batch of this on Saturday.  I ran out of time to cook it so decided to leave it until Sunday. But Sunday was very busy too so it wasn't baked until this morning. I had kept it in the fridge while it was waiting.
The texture is a little bit all over the place and we had a couple of big air bubbles form while it was returning to room temperature, but the flavour is so nice. Not quite a SD but still very nice. It was in the fridge for about 36-38 hours.

I love how you can neglect it and still end up with a useable loaf cookie.  Swiss cheese has holes in it, you could call this one a Swiss loaf.

Not a bad idea Judy. Swiss Classic Bread.

Cookie, this is a very interesting loaf. When air bubbles develop on the top, I wonder if this is because the dough at the top is in a warmer environment. The part in the tin stays cooler and therefore doesn't rise as much.

Chookie thank you. I was hoping you would have some ideas. I don't think we let this return to fully room temperature. DH was keen to get it in the oven and see how it turned out. I will do the same next time and try to leave it longer before I cook it.

An interesting looking loaf Cookie.  It would still taste nice, holes don't affect the flavour :D :D
The  man who said it can't be done should not interupt the woman doing it.

Love the holes, butter sinks into them.
Cookie, I wonder if floating the loaf on warm water while waiting to come back to room temp, would help.
Last time I made your Classic loaf, the room was cold so I sat the loaf in the tin on the open oven door. I had been baking so warm air was coming out. It was very successful. Love the challenges that baking bread throws at us.
Nice that we can share our knowledge here.

I made a loaf of this today, it always turns out nicely.  Much, much better than that awful store bought bread we had to buy while on holidays.

I'm glad you enjoyed it Margaret. Store bought bread seems to taste like poly styrene to us now. When we are away DD even makes her own bread.

I decided to make this bread today. I fed up the starter last night and by this morning it was ready to go.

DH and DD love it as it's quite soft and airy. I stick to the SD as it's supposed to be better for me.  ;)
