My 12 crispy tips for beautiful homemade bread, to succeed every time

The resulting bread baking d & rsquo; a paste obtained by kneading a result of & rsquo; a mixture of flour, d & rsquo; salt water and subjected to fermentation with yeast. It combines in itself the 4 essentials. To know, Earth (wheat), used water, the air, the cells contained in bread, and cooking, fire.

Bread is the & rsquo; several populations staple. There are many varieties. Each country, sometimes, each has its specialty baker of bread and his own way of making the. Whatever we eat today is the product of a long history, Agriculture, culinary and even technology.

Despite these developments, This does not change, are these are the traditional breadmaking stages. The traditional bakery business remained the same : kneading the dough, fermentation, lifting, shaping, coke oven charging and firing.
Bread making has become more democratic and with this confinement due to the Corona virus, Almost everyone wants to realize his bread house. I present an unpretentious recipe (I am not a baker), but so pleasant in the mouth (ask my knowledge) I accept in different ways depending on the result I would have. Many of you ask me bread recipes.

Indeed, I have a passion for doughs that I grow for several years. I even came to make specialty breads African flavors, as gluten free breads that you can order from me. Until you read one of these days, I'm nice and share with you ...

1/ Choosing the right ingredients

2/ Remember to avoid direct contact between the salt and yeast not to cancel the effect of raising the latter.

3/ If your recipe you need to dissolve the yeast in a warm liquid, do not exceed 40 °, a too high temperature kills the yeast, deactivates


4/ The lifting is an essential moment. The paste has indeed need time to ferment under the action of yeast. This is the time when small air bubbles will form within the dough, what is decisive in the light of the crumb.


5/ If we see that the dough has difficulty climbing, do not hesitate to place it near a heat source (radiator, computer, still hot microwave ... e.g.).


6/ The dough of our breads of the day is quite soft. Do not panic. This means that the flour is hydrated, and that we have something soft and elastic. The dough is not always easy to work but the result will be up to your expectations, with a nice crumb well airy and airy.


7/Once the dough has doubled in size, it's time to shape your bread, give it the shape you want.


8/ Place a container (a suitable dish or a pie pan) with water during preheating and cooking to moisten the inside of your oven and thereby create steam.

This step is very important because it is what will make the crispy crust. We can also spray water directly on bread.


9/The cutting is grigne, scarification performed by the baker before baking bread. It allows one to lift at specific locations and not haphazardly. Without this operation, bread crust cracks during baking to allow crumb to develop. Read what I wrote about it in the realization of the recipe ( - hyphen 9)


10/ Aromatic herbs, fruits secs, spices, seeds… All these additional ingredients that enhance the dough are to be applied from the start of kneading.


11/ sweating, the cooling step of your bread after baking, must be performed properly, the risk that your soften bread. As soon as it comes out of the oven, it must cool in good conditions, by removing heat well


12/ Keep the bread well cooled in a clean cloth

What you need

– 850g organic T55 wheat flour or not

– 650 g of warm water, not hot

– White pepper Penja (optional)

– Ground ginger (optional)

Realization of the recipe

- In a salad bowl, place half of the flour, will make a well, put the yeast and cover with the other half

- Pour water, add salt and oil if you use

- Knead the dough for 5 minutes to give body and elasticity

- Filming and let stand in the & rsquo; the hottest place in your home. The dough must double in volume

It will be soft enough, because the flour is hydrated, therefore more flexible. The paste will not be easy to work but the result is worth it, with a well ventilated crumb

- After 1 hour 30 minutes

- Set the oven to preheat to 250 ° C (up for me) and place an ovenproof container in it for 10 minutes.

- Add bread balls on a baking sheet lined with parchment paper

- Shaping rod-shaped, or as a loaf (I used a high stainless steel circle to give my bread a nice round shape). Use enough flour not to have the dough stuck on your hands and of course give your bread a rustic touch (optional)

- Make notches in the dough with the sharp blade on approximately 5 cm so that the air escapes and to have an airy bread.

A confidence : I didn’t make any nicks on them - you see because I sometimes like this blind path traced by the air that escapes from the dough and cracks it in an almost poetic way.

- Fill the container placed at the bottom of the oven with cold water (Take your precautions, the container is hot) and immediately close the oven. This will be the blow of steam that will allow the bread to be crisp with a nice shiny crust. Pendant le préchauffage de votre four, l’eau va rendre humide l’intérieur du four et créer ainsi de la vapeur.

– Baisser immédiatement la température du four à 220°C

– Enfourner et laisser cuire environ 30 min.

– Au bout de 25 mn, retirer le récipient pour que mes pains sèchent bien

– Refroidir les pains sur une grille.
