  • German country-style rye bread (Landbrot)

    • manycookbooks on March 10, 2019

      This recipe is seriously flawed, unless I missed something. After making the starter, which, despite fresh yeast, did not become very "bubbly", the instructions follow to make the dough. Step 2 indicates that you should "mix the flours in a large bowl. Make a well in the center and add the dissolved yeast and starter" (so far, so good). After mixing, the mixture is supposed to be a "thick batter", but it's more like a heavy bowl of sludge. It did not "sponge" and get frothy! Even worse, in step 4, you are to add the "fermented batter" and "mix in the flour"! Excuse me, but didn't we already do that in step 2? The entire recipe is very poorly described and I needn't tell you about the dismal result! Not only does the dough need "proofing" correctly, but the recipe needs "proofreading"!

      A really good way to stretch (no pun intended!) your flour out if you don't have much left. I had an old can of pumpkin puree that I used and froze the remaining pumpkin for a cake maybe. A great looking bread, makes a much softer loaf too.

    If you learn best by looking at pictures, then this is definitely the book for you...And while it's a perfect book for beginners...many experienced bakers would also enjoy it.
