Sep 14th 2007 6:28PM Yeah, I came very close to big-time burns more than once, but didn't get anything as serious as you did. There's STILL the impulse to just grab the thing -- it just looks so innocent or something. It's a real tribute to the bread that you ever wanted to even see it again, much less bake it.
Sep 14th 2007 2:57PM I've been making a whole wheat version since last winter. After years of trying hand-kneading, kitchenaid, and bread machines with mediocre results, I'm at long last making great bread that's better than anything I can buy. I didn't want to spring for a dutch oven, so tried the ceramic lining of an old crockpot with a glass cover, which works perfectly.
My only failure was an attempt to use the same recipe (with olive oil added) to make pizza. The crust was all tough and nasty. I tried making it in a cast iron skillet, which may be part of the problem. Anyway, anybody made great pizza crust with this method? Seems like it should work.
Dec 13th 2006 3:45PM Materialist, I was thinking a cast iron skillet would be the most convenient, but couldn't figure out a cover. Are you talking about a very tall skillet, or did you have some kind of high cover?
