Taste of pears
I've managed to fit in a mid-week bake, its actually much easier than you might think.
Decided make up a Pear Cider Bread, figuring that the extra sugars make the fermentation a bit easier. Mixed everything up as soon as I got home from work, stetch and fold a few times and leave to bulk ferment for a few hours. Shape before going to bed and bake first thing in the morning. It takes me an hour to get ready for work, and only 40 minutes to bake a loaf of bread - perfect!!
The photo below is a bit rubbish and my shaping and slashing is quite bad, but the taste of the end product is very good, nice and chewy, and I think it will develop really well over the next couple of days
