So the experimentation continues. This time I started the bread in a cold oven in a dutch oven. It produced a light bake and whilst this loaf was baking I held back the other loaf in the fridge. Both doughs weighed exactly the same. Then I placed the second loaf into the hot oven on a tray. The next experiment will be cooking the second loaf in the preheated dutch oven.
As you can see the cold oven dutch oven bake produced a larger loaf and a paler bake than the the hot oven on a tray version.
And the bake itself produced a lovely soft loaf, it was delightful, I really enjoyed this loaf. I think there may be something in this idea for the home baker.
One thought on “Cold Oven Bread Baking part 2.”
I’m very impressed, but could we have a picture of your Dutch Oven, please? I like that the sunflower seeds remain unscorched in the Dutch Oven.
