It seems like I’ve been having really good luck with the BBA breads lately so it was only a matter of time before I ran into another dud. Yup, that beautiful loaf of bread was nothing but a waste of my beloved sesame seeds.
It was a simple bread although it took 3 days. Day 1 was mixing the pre-ferment and allowing that to rise before letting it sit overnight in the fridge. Day 2 was mixing the actual bread, shaping it, and then letting the bread hang out in the fridge overnight. Day 3 was baking.
Not a lot of work but a lot of time.
I prepared my oven as I have for the past couple breads (hearth baking) but this bread didn’t have quite the spring that the others had. The crumb was very tight and it was just a very dense bread.
