Best Bread Yet

This is my best bread yet!



I tweaked the recipe a bit.

I started with a large bag of defiance bread making flour just from the supermarket. I pretty much followed the recipe on the bag but I gave discovered a few things.

- Weigh the ingredients!!!
- Make the water hot but not burning (lukewarm water cools down too quickly)
- Oil the inside of the gladwrap used to cover the loaf
- I prefer to make a Cobb loaf thus avoiding the bread getting stuck in the tin.
- Use cornmeal to dust the baking tray.
- Dust the top of the bread with flour instead of glazing. (just my preference)

In addition to these things I replaced the sugar with honey, I had to use slightly more honey than sugar. I also used olive oil in preference to butter. I much prefer the taste of this bread.

Now that I am more confident I intend to try a few different recipes from the Internet. Occaisionally u will let you know how it is going.

oh how delish. I love making damper here to go with our pumpkin soup. Nothing beats that fresh smell and lovely melt in the mouth damper with the slight crisp shell.
