First time going off recipe
I've just started doing bread (this is my 5th batch), since I made my starter on january.
I'd tried doing a brioche and it turned out quite well, but this time I wanted to do a standard sourdough but with higher hydration than the one I'd been using, and adding butter (and adjusting the water). I usually do 70%, but this time I tried 80%, ad it didn't work. It was a soupy mess, so I added flour until it felt right. Then I incorporated 200g butter.
Everything went kind of wrong in most of the steps, but I improvised, and it they came out quite well. Yet since I've got no real point of comparison, maybe you can give me notes for next time.
Also, I like them and I want to show them off :D
These buns I formed as little boules. But by then I was sure I'd made too many mistakes and that they weren't going to come out right...
...So I didn't even try with these. Just added poppy seeds to give some color.
Both I gave a wash of melted butter.
What do you all think?
