Grouperman's bread thread
« on: March 13, 2013, 07:51:18 am »
I don't want to hijack any of the other bread threads, so I made this one for my adventures in sweet bread starter.


Dry from the package:


Water added:


After 1 hour covered:


Morning bubbles:


5:30 PM until 10 AM:


Into the jars. Growth from the 5 minutes it took me to wash the bowl and get the camera:



I'll try my first bread next week.

Very Nice!

I feel like a new Grandpa watching his first Grand child start to grow.

Will be looking for the fine bread you will be making.

You seem to have some active bread there, hope I have the same.
Can't wait to see the end results.

I got really busy and didn't get around to posting. My bread last week was OK -- something came up and I had to get it in the oven, so I didn't let it rest long enough the last rise. It tasted good but was not light and fluffy.

But this week ...

I let the loaf rest about 6 hours before baking. Came out like this:



and this:



Light, fluffy, and delicious!

Loaf went 30 minutes, larger rolls 28, smaller rolls 25.


I also did some rolls. They also rested the 6 hours, but I didn't like how I had sized them, so I re-shaped into two different sizes and waited another 4 hours. I only took a small taste, and I think the rolls might be better than the loaf.






Ready to try some other recipes.

I should also add that I ran out of bread flour, so I had to use 1/2 pound of all-purpose flour. Not sure how much that effected things.

Great looking Bread. Seems like the rolls come out fluffier than the bread.

Just make sure you only renew your starter with King Arthur and
not all purpose.

I have used Gold Medal Bread Flour and like it, but here it is only
about .30 a bag cheaper than King Arthur.
