|Baked bread |
"Hjemmebagt" - 73 recipes - 26 accomplished = 47 recipes to bake
|Dough just placed in basket|
I was baking again last week-end, taking another small step towards baking my way through the great bread book called "Hjemmebagt". This time I decided to bake the very, very first recipe in book called "Det basale brød (the basic bread)". And as the recipe name indicated is a simple bread made from flour, water, yeast and salt, so no use of fancy flours nor ingredients.
The bread can be baked from either spelt flour or wheat flour. I wanted to bake it from spelt, but I did not have enough spelt flour, so I ended up with a combination of 75% spelt flour and 25% wheat flour.

I made another modification to the bread process. As I needed to have the bread ready for some guests coming around in the evening, it would be a little tricky to raising the bread twice between returning from work and serving the bread for the guests. So I made the dough the evening before, followed by cold raising cold outside and afterwards followed by raising at ambient temperature in a bread basket, after I return home.
The tricky thing about raising bread in a bread basket is to cover the basket with enough flour, so the dough is not sticking to the basket, when you place the dough on the baking tray.
