Crusty bread

Bread is not really my strength actually. But I won’t give up of course.

This time I tried a recipe of ayose that you can find on his Instagram

What do you need?

  • 250g of flour (standard)
  • 250g of flour T300
  • 340g of lukewarm water
  • 6g of fresh yeast
  • 10g of salt
  • 1 spoon of honey

Dilute the yeast in the lukewarm water

Mix the flours, add the water, salt and honey.

With your hand or your kitchen robot mix the ingredients well together.

Fold 4 times from the outside to the inside and let rest under a clean kitchen towel for 15mn. If your kitchen is not warm, let it raise in the oven at 30 degrees without ventilations. For me it worked really well.

Repeat twice and then let the dough rise in the fridge for 12/24hrs. Cover the dough bowl with kitchen film.

Take the dough out of the bowl and do 5 fold from outside to the inside. Form a ball with your hand by turning the dough gently on the kitchen surface.

Make some cut with a cutter or sharp knife. Let raise 1 to 2hrs. If you see that after 1hr it stopped to rise then you can put it in the oven. If your kitchen is cold, you can make it to raise in the oven at 30 degrees without ventilation.

Heat the oven at 250•c and put a tray at the bottom of the oven. When putting the bread in the oven, pour a glass of water in the tray to make humidity and leave the heat from the bottom of the oven only. Bake 20mn

Remove the tray, decrease to 220•C and put back the heat on top and bottom for 30mn

Check depending of your oven if you need to decrease temperature or change from top/bottom heat to bottom only

Let the bread get completely cold before cutting it. Let it rest on an oven rack.
