TWD – Tuesdays with Dorie
The first Tuesdays with Dorie recipe for 2014 seems great so far! I froze the loaf to eat later, which was really difficult to do. The smell was amazing.
I made half the recipe, since there are only two of us. I made the recipe in a few stages. I quickly stirred together the sponge Friday evening, and then let it sit all night (as recommended by the recipe).
Saturday I mixed in the remaining ingredients, and let it rise in the bowl. I then placed it in the refrigerator overnight.
Sunday morning I pulled the dough out to warm up. After breakfast I shaped the dough and laid it to rest in a bowl, lined with a flour-coated linen. I let the bread rise for a good couple of hours (we keep our house cool in the winter).
Sunday afternoon I baked it up. It was ready in time for an afternoon snack and dinner, but instead of tasting it, I bundled it up and placed it in the freezer.
This bread was really easy to make. I think breaking it out in steps helps immensely. Shaping the dough was also quite fun.
I’m excited to see how everyone’s turned out, especially since I haven’t tasted mine yet.
