Sandwich Loaf, An Attempt
|No, it's not focaccia.|
Bread is a tricky thing.
I wanted to make a simple bloomer loaf from Sorted Foods, which they made for their amazing grilled cheese recipe. Looked easy enough, and I didn't have to worry about kneading incorrectly because I just popped it into the stand mixer.
Look at it, so ready to grow.
But after the first proofing hour, the dough had barely doubled. It was pretty chilly in the apartment, so I figured I'd wait. After another hour; nothing. Alright, well we'll see. I formed it and stuck it in a pan and waited another hour.
Alright maybe the oven will puff it up?
Yeah something was defintiely wrong.
Apparently yeast has an expiration date, kids. Even in the fridge. I'm going to blame it on that. I'll try this recipe again, cause I super duper love the idea of home-baked grilled cheese, and the Sorted team seems to know their stuff. With baking, there's a million things that could go wrong.
Ah well, can't win 'em all.
