Making a great loaf of bread is a process that takes time — from the few hours to make a quick yeasted bread to up to 48 or more when working on slow fermented sourdough breads — so it’s usually a good idea to plan ahead a little bit. And in order to plan well, knowing all the steps involved in the project you are about to start helps a lot.
When you are familiar with the steps, you can work on your bread with confidence, without worrying about whether you forgot something or looking for ingredients you forgot, just when you should be mixing them in.
This is why today, in this post, I will share with you the 14 steps of bread making.
As always, I suggest you try it yourself — and experiment a lot! Change some elements from here and there and look at the results: What worked? What didn’t? Did the change help you with your bread making schedule?
