Bread-Making Tips

Posted by Nay Ager

Tepid water won't kill your yeast but make sure it is tepid and not hot. Mix the water into the flour, salt and yeast with a rubber/silicon spatula until it is just mixed in (there will still be dry flour but don't panic) and let it stand for 20 minutes. After 20 minutes mix, knead, prove, shape and prove as usual and the end result will be a loaf of bread with much more flavour. I also add dry milk powder to the mix for a milk loaf with better keeping qualities.
