Dough in the Fridge
Into my 12th bread baking and so far the results have been very satisfying and exciting
So I thought to try this French Country bread recipe which calls to have the dough into the fridge for 2 to 24 hours. I was curious to see what the fridge will do to the dough
Besides the all purpose flour and water, the recipe calls for 1/3 cup instant dry milk powder, 2 envelops of Fleischmann's rapid rise yeast, 1/2 cup plain yogurt and 3 tablespoons vegetable oil.
I have no experience but thought the dough should rise after 24 hours in the fridge (covered with a plastic bag but not sealed) but it did not rise at all.
Is the purpose of having the dough in the fridge to let it rise slowly or what?
