The urge to make my own bread.

Characteristics

Very aromatic, soft and mildly sour bread. I remember this taste from my childhood . My grandma used to buy bread at this local baker whose bread was the best I ever tasted. I am getting there with my recipe...

4
Work the dough with your hands. I use slap and stretch technique to support gluten development, good 10 minutes and then I let the dough sit for another 30 minutes.
5
Fold the dough several times, shape it and prepare it for proofing. I use round proofing basket. The proofing time depends on temperature at your home, during winter it can take a lot longer before the dough doubles its size. Approx. 2 hours.
6
Preheat the oven to 250 °C with baking stone inside. Score your proofed loaf with sharp blade and put it onto the baking stone. I pour cup of boiling water onto bottom of the oven the increase the humidity in the oven for the first 10 minutes of baking. Then lower the temperature to 220 °C and bake another 20 minutes or until the desired color of the crust.
