Following a disaster the other day with dough sticking to my bread flour sprinkled cloth in a colander, I decided to purchase some rice flour for the purpose. The release results are great and having the rice flour I was checking out TFL in relation to this particular flour.
I've noticed it mentioned here that some use 50/50 all purpose/rice flour and some 100% rice flour. Why are some using 50/50? I tried with 100%.
I'm trying to "eat for my blood type", which is O. I miss my rye or sourdough toast in the morning. I can't use ww or oats or milk products or vinegar. Anyone know of any bread recipes using other flours? I don't think I can make an all-rye loaf because it wouldn't rise, and the bread bible says spelt has a funny taste. The recipes for essene bread have beans, which are also not allowed except for adzuki beans. Thanks!
I mentioned this in my blog, but thought I'd bring it to the forums as well where it might get more attention -- for those who've already seen it, I apologize for the repetition.
So, the issue. I made a big 2.5 lb. boule of desem bread over the weekend. It turned out beautifully as far as color, lightness and flavor are concerned, but, for the second time since I started using rice flour to dust my bannetons, the crust was not so crispy.
