Delicate aroma of garlic, magically soft, tender crumb, thin crispy crust... What could be tastier than freshly baked homemade bread? To prepare such bread will not make you a lot of work, but will bring great satisfaction.
For leaven dough dissolve yeast in water, mix with sifted flour. Capacity with sponge tighten with cling film and put in a warm place for 10-12 hours (at night).
Here's the dough in the morning.
Peel garlic (5-6 medium-sized cloves) and fry in a tablespoon of olive oil until Golden.
Warm garlic in a mortar or mash with a fork. Of course, you can use dried garlic, too, will be good. But I advise you to spend ten minutes of your time and to do so, as in the recipe. The difference is noticeable, believe me!
Sift flour into a Cup, dissolve yeast in water (at room temperature) and pour into flour mixed with salt. Here also pour in the yeast mixture and add the garlic and a tablespoon of olive oil. Knead thoroughly (I trust the mixer). Since the flour is different, I advise you not to add all at once to the dough. Flour may need a little less or more. The dough is quite dense, but not cool.
Put the dough in a Cup, greased with vegetable oil, tighten with cling film and put in a warm place for 45-50 minutes for the approach.
The dough has doubled in size.
Knead the dough, form a round loaf. Put on a baking sheet covered with baking paper (grease the paper with vegetable oil). Cover with linen towel and put the baking tray in a warm place for 25-30 minutes.
Sprinkle bread with water, sprinkle with cumin (optional) and lightly sprinkle with salt. Bake in a preheated oven for 200 * 10 minutes, then reduce the temperature to 180* and bake bread for another 15-20 minutes (of course, you need to focus on your oven).
Leave the bread to cool on a wire rack.
Weight of bread 550-600 g.
Enjoy your meal!
