A really nice loaf this one with a good tasty crust and a yeasty taste
- 160g strong bread flour
- a small pinch of instant dried yeast from a 7g packet
- 115g water
Mix the above into a dough, knead for a few minutes then cover and store in the fridge over night.
Next day, heat your oven to 200 C/gas 6
- 270g strong bread flour
- 8g salt
- the dough you made last night
- 145g cold water
- the rest of the 7g packet of yeast
Make a dough with these ingredients and knead for a good 10 minutes, leave to rest for 30 minutes, then divide into 4 equal parts and form them into balls.
Place them in a greased loaf tin, cover and leave to proove at room temperature until at least double in size.
Bake for 25 minutes then reduce oven temperature to 180 C/gas 5 remove from the tin and put back in the oven for 5 minutes.
As for the asparagus, best just boiled al-dente and eaten with salt and butter.
Really happy with the light on these shots, 3 speedlights with a blue gel on the background. Have a good week everyone!
