Did you know you could actually do the things you pin to Pinterest? Me neither, I thought they were purely aspirational. Here's a series on actually doing the pins.
The Series. My Pinterest boards.
I used this recipe from Bread in 5 my yeast was 4 months out of date so I was a little worried it wouldn't work but after mixing it all in and leaving it I came home to risen dough. I was pretty excited.
To make the loaf you measure out a pound of dough and make it into a ball, then leave it to sit for 90 minutes. You're supposed to use parchment paper but last time I used it it made my kitchen all smoky so I just used foil.
I cooked it at 400 instead of 450 and for 5 minutes less because my over runs really hot, it probably could have done with a few minutes less because the crust was a little tough. But it turned out great!
Apparently the dough lasts in the fridge for two weeks and I love the idea of having dough in my fridge to use when ever I want.
