Chris's rustic loaf (and buns)
« on: April 15, 2012, 04:15:52 PM »
I was looking forward to this bread, above all the others, this month; not because it was unusual or exciting, but because it just sounded tasty. It didn't disappoint.

I made a rounded loaf and half a dozen bread buns.

Very nice Chris! I'm hungry now...

Your preferment did rise neatly, mine didn't do that, maybe your kitchen is a bit warmer.
Did you find the recipe to be too wet when kneading?

Thanks! My our kitchen was warmer; we've had odd weather here, recently, so some days I'll begin in a woolly jumper, scarves and gloves... then slip into some shorts an hour later!

I think the dough was wetter than some, but I didn't find it too wet. Saying that, my kneeding style usually involves dough sticking to hands and table for the first five minutes, whatever the dough, so I may just have ignored it! It certainly wasn't anywhere near as wet as a pizza or ciabatta dough.
