As a student living with other students, I am pretty proud about my eating habits. I cook all my meals and eat loads of fruit and veggies (this is also due to the many intolerances problem I have… I do not really have any other choice, but still, I enjoy!)
Despite this, I would have never imagine to actually bake my own bread!
So this was an epic moment (when I still could eat gluten…)
Actually, I have to thank my dear house mate who kindly thought me and helped me 🙂
1 kg Flour (You can mix the types of flour you prefer, I mixed 800 gr wholemeal flower and 400 gr mixed cereal flour 😉
8 dl water (not too cold and not too warm)
30 gr yeast (If you buy the one in small bags, use one bag)
20 gr salt
Pour half of the flour in a bowl and add 6 dl of water, mix and let stand for 15 minutes . Then, add the rest of flour to the dough, add the yeast , salt and the rest of the water and work the ingredients until the mixture is soft and elastic. Leave it to rest for at least 2 hours with a towel over it.
Then, start shaping the dough till it forms the desired shape and let rise for other 20 minutes . Meanwhile, bring the oven at 240 – 250 ° C . Before putting the dough in the oven, cut its surface into diamonds, eventually sprinkle some more flour .
Adjust the cooking temperature to 220 ° C and bake for about 45 minutes.
Useless saying that both the smell and the taste were amazing! Nothing compares to home made bread! 😉
