My lack of posts are evidence that I am in a bit of a funk these days. The consequence is, well...I seem to have what I call bakers block.I cannot seem to find the wherewithal to make a loaf, and when I do, it turns out like crap.
Don't get me wrong, the bread pictured here was quite edible, but it was not what I had envisioned when making it. I was looking for long, shiney bubbles in my crumb. I let it rise nice and slow, with a generous spell in the fridge in hopes of developing the sugars and therefore a golden crunch of a crust.
Instead I was presented with a pale, miserly crumb and a flabby exterior...perhaps a reflection of my temper these days.
