Tartine Bread Fail :)
My first post here ;)
I tried to make the Tartine Bread and i failed miserably :D
Here is the result :
The dough got way to sticky so i could not make the folds and when i took it out of the bowl all the air came out because it was sticky and hard to handle :(
The dough was sticky from the beginning and i was hopening that it would change but did not. I am guessing the reason was the flour used so maybe i am going to try again sometime.
I used this flour (danish) :
I used machine to mix the incredients and i used the oven (without turning it on) and a bowl of boiling water to keep the temperature high so the dough could develop.
The bread is edible but :
1. It's extrmely flat but does have big holes of air.
2. The crust was great when it came out. Became soft after putting it in a plastic bag as expected.
3. The taste is rather sour, i am guessing the starter was not THAT young as it should be and maybe the temperature was to high in the oven so i should have not left it for 3.5h. btw the temp was around 35C.
Anyway i had to share it and yes i have read the links about the sticky dough here. I will try some of the suggestions.
