Artisan Bread in 5 min a day

post #1 of 76
Thread Starter 
Has anyone tried this? I did yesterday and it was so easy and the bread was really good. I love it because I have bread ready to make for the next 2 weeks. Watching it on you tube convinced me to try it. So easy.

We have the book and live by it right now. All this bread can NOT be good for my waistline

I've made the master recipe (subbing some WW flour in there), the brioche recipe for cinnamon rolls and donuts, I've made bagels, I've made the Pain d'Epi (wheat stalk bread), the semolina loaf, I pretty much make the WW sandwhich loaf every other day for sandwhiches...

Mmmmm... bread:

A co-worker of mine shared his copy with me, and I've been eager to do it. After visiting a Waldorf preschool yesterday where they were making bread for snack I'm inspired to go for it. DS asked last night if we could make bread, so how can I resist? My co-worker claimed it was super simple. He brought warm, fresh bread in every Friday which was so nice.

I'll have to try it with the WW flour next. My crust turned out almost too crispy. How does yours turn out? Does the book say to bake on 450 ?

I couldn't get the youtube to open, is it the no-knead bread? I've tried this about 10 times and NEVER been able to get it turn out good. I guess I'm a crappy bread-maker.

Yes, LOVE the book. I know there are several mamas here who have also used their recipes. We've discussed it in various threads.

I LOVE THIS BOOK!!!

I've made many of the recipes in the book, cant think of them all offhand, but its fun and pretty easy, the worst part is resisting cutting open warm bread!!!


hmmmmmmmmmmm cinnamon rolls..........

I bought the book but haven't cracked it open yet. Don't you need a Dutch Oven to make the recipes?

Nope, just regular oven. If you watch the you tube video(type in Artisan bread in 5 min a day) they show you everything except the amount of time to bake and the temp. I picked up the book and didn't buy it thinking I would not have the time to do it. Once I saw the You tube demo I had to try it. It was so easy and so delicious. I found the baking time and temp on another site.

It a no-knead receipe, but not the method is a bit different and IMO more fool proof.

Most of the reciepes need a flat baking stone (the book says you can sub a cookie sheet, but really recommends a baking stone. I want to get a pizza peel because sometime the proofed bread gets a bit wonky when I set it on the hot stone.

Oh, awesome. I'll have to read it then, LOL!

I got it through one of those Chef book clubs.

I just used a baking sheet w foil on it and it worked great. I am going to purchase a pizza stone some time though. Also, they said to put a dish in the oven with hot water.

The pan of hot water makes A HUUUUGE difference, just so ya know! Ive forgotten it many times and the crust on the boule is SUUUPER thick!!!

This month's Cuisine At Home magazine has a great recipe for artisan bread. I made two baguettes and they were fantastic! Here's a pic of them.

The magazine has some other really good recipes, too. I got it at Albertson's just last week.

Another fan here

Most of the bread is very crusty - good to go with soups or as toast, or by itself. However, I would note that it doesn't make good sandwich bread. Of course, I haven't made the 'sandwich' loaf, yet, as it requires a nonstick pan (which we avoid).

So delicious!

I'm so excited to try this! Off I Go!

We looove the sandwich bread!! Its not super good for you as its all -white, and Ive never messed with the recipes at all, but its super yum.
I wanted to add, I use a glazed stoneware pan to do my loaves, and it works just fine-- be sure to oil AND flour the pan though!
