Notes about Recipes in this book

  • Buttermilk cinnamon-raisin bread

    • jumali on October 18, 2021

      This was an easy recipe to follow. The dough was wetter than I expected, and though I let it proof for twice the recommended time it didn't collapse as predicted. I just tapped the bowl on the counter, and it fell. Then I refrigerated it overnight. It was very easy to shape, and again I let it proof a second time for twice the prescribed time and it still wasn't as high as I would have liked. It was easy to slice and makes great toast, with just the right amount of raisins. I'll make this again.

  • Baguette

    • anya_sf on January 01, 2022

      I used the recommended strong white dough (made with diastatic malt powder), which had been in the fridge 2 days. Half the recipe yielded 4 demi-baguettes. The dough was surprisingly easy to work with. The baguettes were flavorful, with medium holes and a relatively crisp (but not blistered) crust. Great result for very little work. I'll definitely make these again.
