BBA Challenge #29

I totally messed this one up.  Or so I thought.  I was already making an alteration to the recipe by using sweet mashed potato instead of regular potatoes.  Then i got a little over zealous and threw in over a CUP instead of a quarter cup.  That was a mistake.  When i was mixing the dough (via Kitchen Aid) it felt way too liquid-y. I knew I had thrown off the proportions by using too much potato, so I threw in a little extra yeast and some more flour.  I also partly used the wrong type of flour.  I used a combination of a half cup of semolina and some whole wheat pastry flour in place of the durum wheat   I used the bread flour that the recipe called for.  I followed the stretch and fold method per the Bread Bakers Apprentice, but let it cold rise in the fridge for about 4 hours while at the gym.

The end result tasted really good, but i am not sure what kind of bread i really made.

Wow! I’m not sure what kind of bread you made either but it looks wonderful! I love breads made with semolina. The scoring looks perfect! Nice job!

Hmmm…mystery sweet potato bread. I don’t think I would have been able to recover from an accidental mistake like that. Good job!

thanks 🙂 I will have to pay much more attention when it comes to sourdough!

It’s totally gorgeous! I love that you just kept going, and ended up with something that tasted good.

Whatever the bread is called, the scoring is beautiful. And the color makes me very much curious to taste it. Wonderful job!
