A first attempt at making a boule from Artisan Bread in Five Minutes a Day

Well it looks good! :) And smells great. Let’s see how it tastes after it cools. I must say the master recipe is pretty fool proof. The book looks great overall. Now this is nothing to challenge my mom’s breadmaking skills, but it’s good to be baking bread again.

Followup: the taste is good, but it is still a bit underdone. The book calls for a baking time of 30 minutes, but it also warns you that the heat of different ovens can vary from what the temperature reads. I think I will have to check my oven to insure that when I set it at 450, it really is 450 degrees. Also, I think I need to let the bread get darker than this. Still, great start!

  1. It looks great!!!
    …but did it have a nice texture, and taste good, too?

      It had a good texture, but a bit too yeast-y. But apparently that is due to a long lay over in the fridge. I can fix that, apparently. More experimenting is in order.
