Hi, Esti here. I have been baking bread (actually, mostly challah bread, egg based) pretty regularly for several years but I am just now branching out (whole wheat sandwich breads, sourdough breads, rolls, eggless challahs).
The more I read, the more I find that proper bread baking requires more sustained hours than a person who works a 40+ hour work week can find. Poolishes, long rise times, multiple rises, overnight rises (bake it in the morning, or bake it in the afternoon) are out of the realm of my schedule.
I feel as though I need to take all my vacation time just to stay home and bake bread.
Does anyone have advice for the over-employed home bread baker?
