I am delighted to be hosting November’s Fresh From the Oven and this month I have chosen a plaited loaf.
I think that bread baked in a tin is far more forgiving than free form on a tray where, you need to pay far more attention to proving time, texture and shaping.
The shape of my plaited loaf is by no means perfect, I found it quite hard to get an even shape and plait, the loaf above was my second attempt – like most of life practise will make perfect!
Fresh From the Oven November Challenge
A plaited or braided loaf – 3 or more strands baked on a tray
Everything else – flour, recipe, method, shape is up to you
To take part bake a plaited yeasted loaf, blog about it and link up to this post, and to Claire and Michelle who run Fresh From the Oven (full details at the foot of the post). I look forward to seeing what you come up with.
I used my standard bread recipe of 3 (and a bit) flour to 2 of water for this loaf.
- 300 ml warm water
- 1 heaped tsp yeast, dried active – I used the one for hand baking
- 150 g organic wholemeal flour
- 300 g strong white bread flour
- 1 tsp salt
- 1 Tbs oil, olive, rapeseed, hemp, etc.
