Without waiting for quick and easy bread: with yeast and vinegar
When I read about the bread for the first time, I could not imagine that it would even begin to work. Because you usually have to set aside a yeast dough that is used for most breads for an hour to rise before you can process it further.
But I was so curious as to whether the bread would work, too, so I just started working on it and I have to throw my doubts overboard and say: It works, really, without double bottom and tricks.
So, on the timer! Finished! Come on!
- At the beginning of the preparation, you dissolve the yeast in lukewarm water. How? Simply add the yeast to the water and whisk lightly with a fork. It doesn’t matter which yeast you use. I use the dry yeast, but only because I always have it in my kitchen cupboard.
Tick, tack, tick, tack
Put the remaining ingredients – flour, vinegar and salt – in the mixing bowl as well. And knead for a minute or two with the mixer with a kneading attachment to create a homogeneous dough that is slightly damp and sticky.
Put everything in a box, place in the cold (!) Oven and bake on top-bottom heat at 200 degrees for one hour.
And the watch says: 3 minutes and 14 seconds.
Since 3-minute-and-14-second bread is so difficult to write, I just round up and say: the simplest bread of the world is in the oven in 5 minutes at most.
Vinegar as a secret ingredient: Vinegar is very important for bread. Because the vinegar acts like a raising agent and ensures that the yeast dough does not rest must and It takes time to work.
Finally, take the (whole grain) bread out of the oven after an hour and let it cool in the tin until it can be easily removed. Cut a slice, smell the delicious bread (I love the smell of freshly baked bread), bite into it and pat yourself on the shoulder.
