Bread - What are you baking today.....
« on: March 19, 2020, 12:52:22 pm »
My dough is not rising, looked at the sell-by date on the bottom of the tin of yeast, 2016  :-[.  Whoops......

So I've ordered some more.

In the meantime, I'm starting a Levain....

Got bored of waiting for my Levain to be ready, though I think it has started to create gas now  :), so I'm making Pitta, which requires no yeast or Levain.....Here's the dough which I will rest for a couple of hours...

Won't be winning any prizes for these, but I'm hoping they taste OK....

Whilst I wait for my Levain to mature, knocked up a couple of less involved loaves....

Children ended my baking career. No time for folding and bench rest when I’m changing diapers

My Last loaves
Sour dough Boule
Ciabatta

Flour water and salt. That’s all You need......
That and a clear schedule. My starter died. I could cry.
