Vegan MoFo – plain ol’ bread (part the two)

so, picking up from part the one.  we are making bread from this recipe.

when we left, we’d just set the bowl of bread-to-be on the counter to rise for a couple of hours.  and after a couple of hours, we had this:

growin'

cover with saran wrap or similar and into the fridge.   after two days, the dough had grown a bit more

great pile o' dough

you can keep the dough in the fridge for a week or so.  decided to make bread after two days.

lightly flour your hands and grab a chunk of dough, about 16-19 ounces if you are using a scale, if not, about the size of a medium grapefruit.  dump the chunk of dough in a floured surface and shape (mine looks like mt.  bread)

place the dough on a piece of parchment (if you’re going to use a baking stone); or  a lightly greased or parchment-lined baking sheet. let the dough rest for about an hour – it probably wont’ rise but spread a bit sideways.   about halfway through turn on the oven and set it to 450F , also place a shallow metal or cast iron pan in the lowest rack of the oven.

right before placing in the oven, slash the top of the dough 2-3 times with a sharp knife, it will deflate a bit.   place dough on the baking stone or cookie sheet in the middle rack of the oven and add a cup of hot water to the shallow rack below – it will steam.  close the oven door and let bread bake 30-35 minutes, until is golden brown.

remove bread from oven and cool on a rack

  1. I’ve been scrolling through a few of these posts, and like Cap’n Stephel, I’m hungry now. I may try that bread. I wonder how it works with whole wheat flour? (I can never leave a recipe alone, I always have to try some sort of addition, subtraction, substitution. That could explain a great deal about my cooking success/lack thereof.)
