NEW recipe

If you have been following the recipes that I posted before, and not getting good result, now you can try this recipe.
I think I wrote enough about making yeast water so I omit that part this time.

1: mix 100g yeast water and 100g flour(I use whole wheat flour) and mix them
in a container that has a lid (plastic wrap would work)

2: Leave the container at room temperature (aound 77-80degrees) for 6-8 hours.
It should double - triple.

3: Let the preferment rest in the refrigerator(vegetable room in the refrigerator is good)
for 6-8 hours.

4: Add 50g yeast water and 50g flour (AP is fine) and mix it.
Let it sit in room temperature for 2-4 hours until double- triple.

5:(you can either do 3 and continue to 6 or just continue to 6)

6: Do same as 4

Now you have 400g preferment in your container.


bread flour 250g
preferment 125g
water 150g-160g
salt 1 teaspoon
sugar 1 tablespoon

Put all the ingredients in a bowl.

Knead it for 10 minutes.

Cover the bowl and let it rise for 6-7 hours (in 77 degrees room)

Put the dough on a lightly floured surface and round it lightly.

Cover the dough with wet cloth kitchen towel and let it rest for 15 minutes.

Uncover, lightly press the dough with your finger tips and make the dough little bit flatter.

Cut the dough into 2 and move them onto a cookie sheet gently.

(you can devide it into up to 6 if you want to enjoy more crust)

Cover and Let them rise until doubles.

Slush the surface and dust some flour on the surface to look better.

Bake it at 400F for about 25 minutes.

If you divided the dough into more than 2, baking time will be shorter.
