Rustic Bread - from Hamelman's book 'Bread'
This is a great recipe from a great book.
The recipe is posted here:
I actually followed the recipe exactly .. which for some reason is rare for me. The only difference was I baked at 425 vs. 450. I wanted a little bit softer crust.. and this worked well. (so I guess I didn't follow it exactly..).
Anyway, I tripled the batch.. these are 1.5lb loaves.
I had to split it up into 3 different bakes.. so the last loaf (poppy seeds) sat for a good hour and a half waiting for the other loaves to bake. It still held up pretty well.
I used a small stone for these and can only fit 2 at a time.
These all have egg wash except the 2 pan loaves.. just flour on those.
The taste is great. Three of us took out a loaf and a half before the day was out.
(now you know why I tripled the recipe)
