Italian Bread

The Bread Baker’s Apprentice Challenge: No 15. Italian Bread

Yay! Here is another installment of my attempt to bake my way through Peter Reinhart’s wonderful book, The Bread Baker's Apprentice: Mastering the Art of Extraordinary Bread.

The fifteenth recipe in the Bread Baker's Apprentice Challenge is Italian Bread.

I loved this bread! This recipe produced two wonderfully tasty, soft and gorgeous loaves. Taste-wise, this has been my favourite bread so far.

Like the French bread, the dough was a little hard to knead but it came together nicely in the end. I made loaves but I think this dough would work well for making individual rolls for sandwiches or subs. I will be making this bread often. Enjoy!

Show some love to the other challenge participants in this challenge.

Up next: Kaiser Rolls!

The kaisers are so much fun. It's because of The Knotting.

Your Italian bread looks great. I find it challenging to bake a bread. Baking a cake is so much simplier :) Looking at yours has inspired me to want to make bread again :)
