Basic White bread

This bread is from a recipe of Baking by James Peterson.


Easy bread to make.  I did not do a pan loaf as I like a nice full crust.


Very moist crumb and a crispy crust. Baked on a Stone. I sprayed with water 3 times 30 second intervals. Enough oven spring so that it did not explose.

Nice height on the cross section, there.  Did the recipe use a poolish?

Hi syd,


Thanks for the nice comment. No I used commercial yeast.  I used 1/2 the amount for a longer rise. Had a nice flavor last night fresh. This am had some for breakfast toasted was good. Will try french toast sunday.  I froze 1/2 of it so it should be intersting.  If you want the baaic r let me know.  Very simple bread.

Mr Bob, nice baking


 


Much prefer this look in bread to tin, more satisfying and tends to keep longer?
