It's been a while since I've used a recipe for bread. Is this something that anyone else does? I know that as a baker, one should not avoid measurements, but sometimes it's just so much faster to throw things together. I would have stopped if I got bad results, but unfortunately, the recipe-less breads are quite nice.
I've been trying to work on my ears. They always come out a little toothy, so it's not as clean as I would want them. Any suggestions on how to get cleaner-looking ears?
Lately, I have not been following any recipes, but instead, just winging it with my loaves. Today I had some whole wheat/rye blend left over, so I decided to make a few loaves. I finally got the proofing time right, so that the ear opened up just enough.
