question about baking in a pot, and steam

March 25, 2007 - 2:00pm -- edh

Hi all,

I've just had an annoying failure with the NYT no-knead bread. After baking, the bread stuck firmly in the pot; I've been making this stuff for weeks with magical success and now this. Any thoughts? I was doing a sourdough, but that hasn't made a difference in the past. Most annoying; it's edible, but the bottom is completely torn out.

The New York Times had a great article by Mark Bittman on making bread

Ideas:

 

1. Use a very hydrated dough

 

2. Use only a small amount of yeast, 1/4 teaspoon

 

3. No kneading

 

4. Rise at cool room temperature for 18 hours and fold a few times at the end

 

5. Proof for a few hours
