Bread-fast for breakfast: Artisanal Bread Recipes
An American breakfast is incomplete without bread. Artisanal bread is very beneficial. The process of baking it preserves a lot of nutrients that are otherwise lost in commercial baking. It's tastier, healthier and can be baked in a nick of time. Let’s bake and make it. First and foremost, we'll prepare a basic dough that’s common for all artisanal bread recipes we'll talk about. However, some of our recipes may need to add extra ingredients while mixing.
We'll mention it in the respective recipes.
Ingredients for dough:-
Lukewarm water- 3 cups
Granulated yeast- One and a half tablespoons
Coarse salt- One and a half tablespoons
Unbleached all-purpose flour- Six and a half cups
Let's mix it:-
Take lukewarm water in a five-quart bowl and add yeast to it. Mix in the flour and salt. There’s no need to knead. When the mixture becomes equally moist, you’re done with the mixing part. Make sure that the dough is moist and very loose to take the shape of the container. The dough would absorb air and would rise. Cover the lid basic(not with an airtight one). Leave it to rise for two hours. In some cases, it may take more time depending on the room temperature. Refrigerate it. The fully refrigerated dough becomes easier to work with(as it's less sticky). We've prepared our dough, which is the base of any homemade bread recipe.
We'll use this dough for in five easy artisanal recipes.
Crusty white bread- Sprinkle the refrigerated dough with flour. Pull off a part of the dough and round it into a ball. Place it on a parchment-lined baking sheet. Leave it for 60 minutes. Preheat the oven to 470 F. Before baking, slash it 2-3 times. Now, bake it for 25-35 minutes. You'll get a golden brown crusty white bread.
