Peasant bread

On the subject of bread, brought up on the mozzie killer thread regarding yeast, I don't have a bread maker and this is the easiest recipe ever.

A link to her blog plus she has videos.

PEASANT BREAD

Ingredients

4 cups (510 g | 1 lb. 2 oz) all-purpose flour* (do not use bleached all-purpose)
2 teaspoons kosher salt
2 cups lukewarm water**
2 to 3 teaspoons sugar (I use 2, my mom uses 3 — difference is negligible)
2 teaspoons active-dry yeast***
room temperature butter, about 2 tablespoons

My Mother's Peasant Bread: The Easiest No-Knead Bread You Will Ever Make

Scroll to the bottom for her YouTube videos.

So simple, so tasty and fast.

Re: Peasant bread

Actually that recipe looks very similar to the ingredients I use in my bread maker which I bought last year, I bought it thinking it would be instead of buying bread but because of the failure rate turns out to be more of a 'addition too' so no cost saving which was supposed to be the idea.

However just a small tip in case anyone wants it, if you have trouble with your bread rising, then try adding just a couple of 'drops' of lemon juice.

Re: Peasant bread

hmm does lemon do same as vinegar? I always put in a teaspoon of vinegar, I think it makes it rise because it does something to gluten or something, but not sure; my mum always put vinegar in so I do.

Re: Peasant bread

I've been making Bread,Current Tea Cakes,Morning Rolls since we came out here.I find the rising and texture of the finished bread depends on the humidity.One week its top notch next its a bit heavy.I used to use the yeast in a block but gave that up once I found instant dried yeast.If you want to try different ways look for Paul Hollywood on you tube,he is a master at bread.

Re: Peasant bread

My rising problems were solved with fresh flour. I use very strong Canadian or Leckford as both are very high in gluten and now keep them in airtight containers.

Re: Peasant bread

Yes Canadian flour is said to be the best and highly recommended when rising problems exist.

Personally I now just throw loads of stuff like currents raising nuts basically anything I feel like in the mix and it then usually give me at least something a bit more edible, although resembles more of a fruit cake than bread.

I initially tried the lemon juice which I picked up the tip from the internet when I first started and was just getting blocks of sold bread (although the birds liked them after I drilled a hole through them) but the lemon juice solved the trick with the rising problem.

Another tip is not to do as I did, 'because it was on special offer' I bought a load of flour only later to discover it does not have much of a shelf life, although it is kept in the fridge in air-tight containers so that stops the flour weevils from hatching.

YES, all flour contains weevils, just takes time for them to be cooked or hatched out. (yep that's probably those crunchy bits you get from time-to-time, not forgetting the added flavouring.

Problem is that after rising you need to put it in the oven for 40 minutes at 190 degrees C

Re: Peasant bread

Is it worth all the time and effort with all the nice fresh breads you can get out in Turkey.?
Cant be economically viable with the energy need for cooking I would have thought.
Noticed in the op that a lot of salt was added, that has recently been banned in Turkey for health reasons.
