A Bread Recipe for Michael

My friend Michael in this time of plague isolation had a bit of trouble with one of Jamie Oliver’s bread recipies, so, I’m sending her my recipe that makes pretty much all of our bread at home, plague or no plague.

Feel free to try it yourself and let us all know in the comments how it worked out!

About a tbsp of yeast in about a cup of warm water.
Two cups bread flour.
1/2 cup whole wheat flour.
About a tbsp of fat. I use bacon fat.
Some honey.
Some salt.
Add the yeast and water.
Stir.
Use hands.
Knead it a bit.
a bit more.
Cover and wait a bit.
It’s big and shaggy!
Knead it a bit more.
Cover it again and wait a bit.
It got big again! But not shaggy.
Make it into a loaf.
Maybe a tiny bit more flour.
Into a loaf pan, sprinkle with a little flour, and cover.
Uncover and bake at 500° for 5 minutes and then 10 to 15 more minutes at 450°. Spray water into the oven now and then while baking.
