Slowly fermented bread. The best bread I have ever encountered is amusingly enough also one of the simplest to bake. It doesn't require kneading and only very little handling. Usually less than 10 minutes. The only drawback is that it has to ferment for a long time, so the process can be difficult to get into a working day.

The white bread is a classic. No doubt about that. Although I have baked "No Knead/The world's best bread" for years, the French bread somehow still leaves the kitchen a lot faster when I bake that :-S So there must be something to it that other loaves simply does not have. I often use this simple and quick recipe that never fails, and does not require anything more than a conventional oven to make. It provides a finished bread in 2 hours.

When making varied and/or large quantities of bread the easiest way to write your recipes are as "bakers percentage". Where ingredients are measured in percents as compared to the total amount of flour. Understanding the bakers percentage also makes you a better baker because they help you understand the structure of different breads recipes instead of just memorising numbers.

Some times the fermentation times in your recipe just doesn't fit with the schedule you have for the day. Wouldn't it be nice to know how to change the times then? As a rule, I would also like to use as little yeast as possible when I bake, but it must also fit into everyday life. So it'd be nice to be able to change fermentation times by adding more or less yeast. I have had some difficulty finding the exact info on what influence the yeast have on the fermentation times, also in relation to how much fluid there is in the dough. So here's a little biology report with my own experiments. And with lots of videos of dough that rises:-S I'm sure this article is the most geeky I have ever made ... but I was curious.

Video recipe - Danish pastry is well known and well loved all over the world. And it is very good. But you can actually make your own danish that has an even higher quality that the one you can get from danish bakers. My father in law who is a skilled baker gave me this recipe. I have changed a few things in it though. His version used a special "folding margarine" I have replaced that with real butter, and that does wonder for the taste. But no matter what, it is difficult get a better cake than danish pastry. Which we incidently call "viennese bread" in Denmark :-S

In many recipes the measurements are volumetric. Such as Liters, milliliters, cups, quarts etc. Rather than in weight measurements such as kg, gram, lbs and oz. If you know the recipe, or is somebody who does not have a weight, it's a fine shortcut to do it this way. But it is not without problems using volumetric measurements of flour instead of weight. Here I show why.

Video Recipe - We knead bread for three reasons. The first is very simply to mix the ingredients together. The second is that the mixing promotes the formation of the gluten in the flour. It makes the dough more elastic. The third is to bootstrap the fermentation. In this video I show a basic principle that can be used for any type of dough, and how to implement it for dough with different amounts of hydration. I also demonstrate what gluten is, and what it does in a bread.
