For those who don’t know I have learned bread baking two years ago. My first bread loaf I have tried baking from scratch (not with the help of machine) was a potato bread! After few courses and lots and lots and lots of practice I finally developed a good technique that works with a lot of bread recipes. That of course allowed me to customise my bread as much as I want by adding different flavours and ingredients. Exciting!
Do you have your favourite bread type, flavour or even recipe. Please share here with us. Would love to see!
1. Mix all the dry ingredients except the seeds in the large bowl and make a well in the middle.
2. Grate pealed potato by using “pucker” stile hole grater that is common in most multi hole side graters. I prefer using plastic one as that prevents grated potato go grey.
3. Pour water and add grated potato into the flour well. Mix everything together into solid mass by folding the flour in from the sides. Mix the seeds into the mixture.
4. Kneed the dough continuously for 10-15 minutes until it becomes less sticky. Do not be tempted to add more flour during this process.
5. Cover the dough in the clean bowl and let it rise for 1hour until it doubles in size.
6. “deflate” the dough and form it into the loaf. I use a proving basket so it makes nicer looking bread loaf. Cover the loaf and let it rise one more time for 30 min.
7. Once the bread dough had its final rise, bake in preheated 200C oven for 30 min.
Recently I could not put my tatting work down… I have finally nailed it! Thanks to CRAFTSY online classes and their really easy to follow step by step videos. I especially love the fact that the teacher is really positive as that makes you feel like you can defiantly do it, regardless how complicated it looks. I can’t wait until I create new projects using this skill that I have learned (hopefully soon you will be able to make it too!). It’s like making friendship bracelets, but prettier ;).
This is my first time ever signing up for e-course! Have you had good experience with online classes before? Would love to hear your story :).
Finally, just wanted to mention that Craftsy offers a wild variety of courses to do with crafts and a little bit more (e.g baking). So pick yours HERE ;).
