Let me get this out-of-the-way now, I’m disappointed with this one. I haven’t loved every recipe from the book but generally have been successful technically at making the recipes. Not so for this loaf. I’m not sure where I went wrong exactly, maybe I shouldn’t have used the proofing feature of my oven to warm up the dough after its overnight stay in the Fridge? Or maybe I put too much flour in the dough trying to get it to form a ball.
All I know is that I now have three albeit good tasting bricks sitting on my counter and I’m not sure what to do with them. I’ll try toasting some throughout the week but still alone to eat of three it’ll be a chore. I’ll try freezing them but usually that just means that I’ll forget them there and still end up throwing them out. Though by then the disappointment is not so fresh.
If I was to try this again, I would skip the over night and do a second proof directly after the first one. I also might try putting a lot less flour in as well. But I said if, a quickbread version of this would be less trouble and just as tasty I’m sure.
