This weekend, I decided to try out a few different bread recipes that I’d found online. I’ve made bread before, but it never turns out quite right. So, I figured the only way to get past that is a little bit of experimentation and trial and error.
Attempt #1: Basic Bread from Joy the Baker
So this bread was pretty good, but it was a little dense. It rose super well since I had it sitting on the porch (and it was 80+ degrees!), but I don’t think I made the slits on the top fast enough because it sort of splooshed flat right before I put it in the oven. Anyways, it was still pretty decent!
Attempt #2: No-Knead Bread from Steamy Kitchen
This bread was great! It takes almost a full 24 hours to make (because of the 12-20 hour rising time), but it’s hardly any work! You bake it in a pot (which looks kind of funny), but it makes the crust crispy and delicious. This was less dense, more chewy, and more crusty than the first recipe attempt. Plus, I think it looks cooler. I will definitely be making this again 🙂
