Rye and ale bread

Tuesday, June 2nd, 2015 | Food

I recently purchased Paul Hollywood’s book on bread. My white bloomer went okay, but I swiftly moved on to the rye and ale bread. I carefully followed his advice and made a nice sticky dough. turns out it was too sticky. In the proving stage, the dough just spread out horizontally until it was a cookie.


In my second attempt I cut down on the liquid I used and dusted the work surface with flour instead of oil and this time it worked out well.
