Judy’s Gross Eats: BBB: The Approachable Loaf

 The August Kitchen of the Month was Kelly of A Messy Kitchen.  Kelly requested the Babes to make The Approachable Loaf, a recipe from the check kitchens of Washington State College BreadLab.  In accordance with WSU, “The Approachable Loaf is tin-baked and sliced, comprises not more than
seven components and no non-food. It’s not less than 60-100% complete wheat
and priced underneath $8/loaf relying on regionality.”

That is actually a simple loaf to make, and, although I made this twice, the outcomes, each occasions, had been disappointing.

For the primary bake, the dough rose to the required peak earlier than the oven got here as much as temperature, so by the point the oven was prepared, I believe the bread had overproofed.


For the second bake, I turned the oven on properly forward of time, watched the bread like a hawk, and, after 45 minutes, it was prepared.  Nonetheless, I blinked at it, and the dough fell.  Severely? So, I squished it down, and let it rise once more.  It nonetheless did not rise, so I ended up with two flat loaves.  


The second loaf had a greater crumb and was much less dense. however nonetheless did not reside as much as the hype.  Nor did it look something just like the loaves from the opposite Babes.    Sigh. Perhaps I might have had higher outcomes utilizing all AP flour.  We’ll by no means know.

 The recipe is posted on Kelly’s blog, or on the WSU Breadlab web site.

The opposite Babes made lovely loaves, so you should definitely verify them out.
