I’ve been wanting to make homemade bread since my first bought with Nisu in November. After one failed attempt, I succeeded, sort of.
From my Trattoria Grappola cookbook, here is the recipe:
2 lbs flour
2 oz yeast
2 C lukewarm water
Dissolve the yeast into 1 cup of lukewarm water. In a separate bowl, mix the flour and salt. Once the yeast is dissolved, add the remaining cup of water and add to the flour/salt mixture. Mix in a standup mixer with the dough hook for about 15 minutes. Put the dough into a bowl and cover with a towel, allow to double in size. Once it is doubled, form into loaves as desired, cover and allow to double again. Bake at 375 for about 45 minutes.
