Does my focaccia look like the one made by George Eckrich
« on: September 12, 2010, 11:42:45 AM »
This is the focaccia I made this morning. In the past two weeks I have tried to make different bread products by using a single dough recipe. Besides focaccia, I tried to make boule, sandwich bread and pizza.

My dough ingredients:
Bread flour     400g
Spelt flour      100g
Ice water       350g
Instant yeast  2 tsp
Sugar             2 tsp
Salt                1.5 tsp
Olive oil          1 tbsp

Just mixed all ingredients together and kneaded the dough in the bowl by spatula for a few minutes. Divided the dough into 2 parts and placed in plastic food boxes. Placed the doughs in refrigerator for over 24 hours. Whenever you want to make bread, just take out the dough from fridge and let it return to normal temperature for an hour before your normal procedures in making bread.

Does mine? ;)

Yes, your one does. What was your dough hydration?
