I ranted this morning about having to make bread today, so I decided that if I was going to have to make bread, I may as well make it a part of dinner tonight. So, dinner will be a cream corn chowder in a bread bowl.
14g quick action yeast
530ml warm water (perhaps more, I did add extra as it was an incredibly dry dough)
880g bread flour
66og plain flour
1. Mix together all ingredients and mix to a dough, knead for about 5 minutes. Cover and leave to rise for around an hour.
2. Knock back the dough, split into six and shape into balls, place on a baking tray, cover and leave to rise for another 30 minutes.
3. Heat the oven to 200c. Put a tray in the bottom of the oven to heat up. Brush the loaves with egg white whisked with a little water. Put them in the oven, add a cup of water to the tray, close the oven quickly and bake for around 30 minutes.
Once they are cool I will make them into bowls, another post to follow!
