I tried it again – this time it seems even better. Have to try it, though.

It has been a while since I have been experimenting with bread making. It is interesting process and I like it.

The funny part is that it teaches me patience. (ask the people around me and they will tell you that I am the real implementation of the opposite of patience).

But when it comes to making bread, I find it relaxing and rewarding in a way that it makes me patiently work on a loaf of bread for 6 days (like any creator, on the seventh day I take a break – lol).

So, here is how it goes:

Day 1: take a spoon of the sourdough starter, mix 50g flour and 50g water, mix and wait. Do the same in the evening.

Day 2: mix 50g flour and 50g water, mix and wait. Do the same in the evening.

Day 3: mix 50g flour and 50g water, mix and wait. In the evening, mix 100g flour and 100g water.

Day 4: mix the flour, water and salt together with the starter. Wait a bit. Then knead. Put in the fridge.

Day 5: Take out of the fridge, if it has not doubled, leave at a room temperature for a few hours. Put back in the fridge.

Day 6. Take out of the fridge, shape carefully and leave at room temperature for a while. Warm up the oven to 260C, then put the bread in and bake at 240C.

 

Here are some pictures of my Pave. It was quite good, even though I did not bake it enough. Next time I will know to bake it a bit longer…
