Ingredients for Valaska loaf

Step by step instruction of cooking Valaska loaf

Шаг 1

The dough is going to cook the usual sponge method on thick sourdough. For the 275 gr flour mix with yeast and gradually add 170 ml of water. Make a fairly tight dough.

Шаг 2

Put the dough in a bowl, cover and keep warm for 3 – 4 hours for fermentation. We finished the dough surface is covered with bursting bubbles, folds.

Шаг 3

Now in the center of the dough make a well, add remaining water, salt, sugar, cheese.

Шаг 4

Stir. Stir in the remaining flour and add the softened butter.

Шаг 5

Knead pretty tight, soft, dont stick to hands dough.

Шаг 6

The dough cover and keep warm until double in volume.

Шаг 7

Coming up the dough lay on the table, podpylenny with flour and divide into 2 halves.

Шаг 8

Knead the dough in a uniform thickness layer.

Шаг 9

Fold the edges to the center – carefully seal the seams, fold in half, and podocyte seam. The result should be a bar (thought I had the pictures of it, but on the machine I forgot, sorry).

Шаг 10

Formed bars, cover and keep warm for the final proofing. Proving test should be the maximum, because the dough incision and lack of proofing in baking is about to explode.
Baked bread in a preheated 220 C oven until tender.

Шаг 11

I do so: on the bottom of the oven put a baking pan – it may burn, but after landing bread in the oven pouring a glass of boiling water and immediately close the oven door. As soon as the dough begins to brown, remaining pairs need to remove to get the pan with remaining water and briefly ventilate the oven.
The bread is so tender, flavorful, delicious!
