Daily bread 2

The flour and water mess I made this morning has - all by itself - turned into bread dough, full of lovely air pockets. I've put it in the fridge; I'll be baking either late tonight when we get back from the theatre, or first thing tomorrow morning. I'll post the proportions I've used tomorrow, when I'm sure it works as well as I think.

Nine o'clock this morning, straight after measuring the flour, water, yeast and salt.

12 noon, the shaggy mess has turned itself into a smooth dough. No kneading involved, just a little light stirring with a wooden spoon.

It's also twice the size, and full of air pockets.

Want to try this yourself? Come back tomorrow ...
