Last week we were in desperate carb withdraw and practically ate Sunday's loaf of bread in one sitting!! I didn't get a snap of it...and I wish I had since I've changed the method slightly and have used less yeast...different loaf...better loaf...and totally devoured! Wednesday I had to bake a second loaf to see us through the rest of the week (again...no snap)...I used a Hovis Granary bread mix (it was ok....but also my first Granary loaf) and it did the job.
Today...white loaf, new method...fantastic results. I've started using a quick blend yeast from Dove Farm Organics...you add it in with the dry ingredients and add the warm water as the mixture is turning the stand mixer...easy peasy and no need to re-activate the yeast!!! Also... have gone from 2 1/2 tsp yeast to 1 tsp yeast...better taste and more reasonable rise. That first round loaf I made in the tin was gigantic and too yeasty...now...perfection!
