Artisan Bread




Introduction: Artisan Bread

I love making bread. its so easy.

Just having the dough around makes me happy because I know it leads to great dinner rolls, roast pork buns, croissants, even pizza and Stromboli....

A piece of warm bread fresh from the oven is just to comforting...

Step 1: Making the Dough

The dough ingredients are:

  • 1 1/2 cups warm water (110 degrees F)
  • 1 tablespoon granulated sugar
  • 2 teaspoons kosher salt
  • 1 package active dry yeast
  • 4 1/2 cups all-purpose flour

Mix the water, sugar, salt, and yeast in the bowl of your mixer. After about 20 minutes it should foam up. If it doesn't your yeast was dead so start over....
If its nice and foamy put the bowl on the mixer with a dough hook and set it on low. Keep adding the flour until it comes together into a ball. Turn that out onto a board and flour it so you can knead it a couple of times. it doesn't need much.... Set it aside and let it rise. Don't fall asleep or you may come back to a mushroom cloud. if you do beat it down and divide it up so you can move on.

Step 2: Baking

I like simple poppy or sesame seed sprinkled on top...

divide it up put it in pans and let it rise another hour...

Simple and so good by itself.

Step 3: When You Get Bored...

Stromboli is the next thing on my list.

Then buns stuffed with roast pork but I already did that instructable...

If you make enough there might even be leftovers...

Step 4: If You Need More..

Serve with cheese, Sopressata and other snacks or just some broccoli topped with parmesan cheese & sprinkled with lemon juice then roasted at 450 for 10 minutes.....

    I think I like making pretzels more but I did make some Kaiser rolls. I saw a video on youtube from Chef Laukhuf and he used a press. Never heard of that but I found a model on thingiverse and printed it out to stamp the pattern in them....

    I ended up with a nice hot pastrami with horseradish mayo on a homemade Kaiser roll....
