This month, not only did I bake, I also managed to blog at the very day! I think that I pretty much owe this to Tanna of My Kitchen in Half Cups who shaped us up and created a fixed schedule for us – the same date very month! Totally brilliant!
Of course I didn’t bake until the every last moment, preparing the poolish late last night and baking this morning before leaving for lunch with my kids in town. They got half a loaf each but I haven’t received any feedback yet.
The baking itself wasn’t very spectacular, making poolish one day and baking the next – pretty standard. But there were some quite interesting ingredients, soy beans, millet and a good pinch of caraway plus three different flours – that made me very curious.
As I have been working like a beaver (can you say that in English?)I didn’t have time to join in the chitchat if the other Babes, so I didn’t get that some of them were doing alterations until I already had baked. But I was pretty pleased with the result anyway! I had very little time this morning so I just added all the ingredients for the dough at once, and after while discovered that it was far too stiff – I ended up adding 1/2 cup water to get it more moist and soft.
And I forgot all about the egg washing just before baking. But I liked the bread! I’m sure it’s very healthy and makes excellent toast too!
