I can't get those Richard Bertinet star shapes *sob* help
I have so far only been baking white loaves which have turned out much better after learning the slap and fold method. I decided to try his poppy seed star shaped bread but I just couldn't get the shape. I made them into little round shapes first, following his recipe. But at the part where I had to cut through it to make three cuts, the dough just joined up again instead of staying apart. So, forcing the cuts apart, I ended up making rings instead of stars. What am I doing wrong?
i am still quite new to baking bread. And this site has been a wonderful help, I have learnt so much. Thank you to everyone!!! It has been about just a month of baking bread at home and I feel like I can't bring myself to buy supermarket bread again!
