Badly planned bread

Firstly last weeks fruit bread.

I added dried figs (soaked in water) and dates. The figs disintegrated! You could just see a few seeds and no fig pieces. Tasted pretty bland as I forgot the all spice. Some honey might have been a nice touch too.

For this weeks bread I decided to try retarding the formed loaves in the fridge overnight. The starter wasn’t very active, I was distracted with moving so the timing was off. I got up this morning and lost 45 minutes somewhere before running. This meant the bread had been in the fridge too long and I had to meet people in a hour for lunch! I stuck the oven up as high as it would go waited 15 minutes for the light to go off, and whacked them in. It worked really well, I think they taste the best so far and the even kept their crust!

Wonky long loaf from being in a hurry.

And of course the crumbshot. Good looking structure.

  1. Impressive, Chris! Did you let the loaves come to room temp before baking, or did you put them straight into the oven from the fridge?
