Try #2 in more ways than one. First of all, it's try #2 in not losing the recipe. Sylvia previously sent me home with a nice handwritten card of her no-knead bread recipe. I promptly lost it. It will probably turn up when I'm 80. So last time I was there (a few weeks ago), I came home with another card.
Sylvia says, with the optimism of someone who has the magic touch with yeast bread, "It's pretty much fool proof."
Then there's me. I can bake almost anything, including rolls, but loaves of yeast bread just don't like something I do to them. The first time I tried this recipe, I didn't even show you the results. They tasted OK, I ate the last slices today for lunch. But they were pretty flat.
Today, I had a second batch of dough started. Loretta called and invited us to dinner. Yikes! Could I leave the bread in the refrigerator for one of the risings? I called Sylvia, but she was also out. I tried it and crossed my fingers. Then I also had a meeting tonight, so the second rising took place almost entirely at 45 degrees, or whatever the fridge is.
How did it turn out? It has the official stamp of approval from Om.
