A bread man who doesn’t come everyday, a Mini Market always in lack of bread, a group of very hungry volunteers… that’s clear, we need to learn how to make our own bread!
So for few weeks we’ve been having a new passion: making our bread, and above all eating it! Almost everyday one of the volunteer starts, kneads the dough with joy, heats the wood stove at full capacity, waits impatiently for the dough to rise, looks with love the crust getting browning… and then rushes on it with others and eat the fruit of his labor in few minutes 😀
One of our best recipes (thanks Sandrine!):
- 1kg whole grain flour
- 1 kg white flour
- 1 tablespoon salt
- 1 tablespoon sugar
- 4 teaspoons yeast
- warm water
Put flour, salt, sugar and yeast in a big bowl (be careful, never put the yeast directly in contact with the salt or you will kill it).
Add warm water until you can make a dough. Leave it few hours close to the fire, until the size doubles.
Put it on a platter with flour everywhere (put also flour on the bread).
It’s cooked when you knock on the bread and it sounds hollow.
