BREAD REVOLUTION!!! (pic and link included) (Video added in OP)
 
I have to share this!!!

I have been trying to make artisan loaves for EVER! As many of you know, it takes all day and for me at least it results into a.... bread hard as a stone. I end up wasting flour and time and am super disappointed at the end of it all.
I saw this article in "mother earth news" magazine http://www.motherearthnews.com/Real-...tes-A-Day.aspx and I started to roll my eyes again.... yeah right! artisan bread in 5 minutes a day.... whatever!
Then I started reading.... and it intrigued me. It sounded exactly like the french recipes that I was used to read about in france but with no luck because the flour here is different. I tried it .... I have been making bread EVERY DAY ever since!!!!!!!!

This is a pic of the one from this morning:

I usually make 2 loaves a day.... and it litterally takes 5 minutes or less of active work.

Basically,
- you mix water, yeast, salt and flour in one big container. (don't knead)
- Put the lid on and let it rise for at least 2 hours (I do 3 hours)
- and then put in your fridge.

It will keep up to 2 weeks and whenever you want to make bread you just get out some dough and let rest on your counter for 40 minutes and then bake for 30 minutes.


Yes! That is it! I have had fresh baked bread for every meal for 3 weeks now. It has revolutionized my baking world! It rocks!


READ the article and try it out. I am going to get the book for other recipes.
I have tried it with white first and now am baking with whole wheat white. (they have a 100% whole wheat sandwich bread in there as well) they all follow the same principle of refrigerated dough!

Do you really *need* the pizza peel and the stone? I could do this, but I lack both pieces of equipment :(. Do you think it'd work on just a regular pizza pan (a vented one? I have one of those...) or a baking sheet?
Hmm... Maybe I need to go kitchen shopping :giggle. This sounds AWESOME! I would love to have home-baked bread all the time, but I've given up on a breadmaker (yuck! Couldn't get it to consistently work without being heavy or soggy), and while I do manage to make good bread the old-fashioned way, it's too time-consuming to do it regularly (okay, so I'm lazy :P).

My friend and I have been using this book/method for a year now and we cannot LIVE without it! The bread is so easy to make, I can do it blindfolded. The only downer is that I end up eating a lot of delicious hot bread with butter.... which makes for some quick weight gain...

Thanks!! My DH really fell for making bread the past year. I'm going to save this for when he comes home in June. He has done great with regular breads but hasn't attempted artisinal breads yet.
