Italian Bread + King Arthur Flour Giveaway

Italian Bread + King Arthur Flour Giveaway via KatiesCucina.com

Who loves glorious freshly baked bread? Italian Bread to be exact. 2013 is a year of self-enrichment. I’m so happy to say I’ve accomplished one of the many goals I made for myself this year; baking fresh bread at home. I contacted the amazing people over at King Arthur Flour to assist me in my bread making endeavors. They sent me an Italian Bread Pan, product coupons, and instant yeast to get me started! I knew if I was going to introduce bread to my readers I wanted it to be in partnership with King Arthur Flour.

Some of you might remember the bread making class I took in January. That is really what jump started it for me. I waited a whole 2 months from the class until I tried bread on my own. The first time I made this Italian Bread it tasted delicious but was very flat. After talking with my friend Terri from Love and Confections she told me I probably over-proofed. So I went back to the drawing board and made it again. This time cutting my proofing time by 15 minutes each round. The bread still came out a tad flat, but not as bad as last time. So when I go to make this recipe again–I will have cut the proofing time in half. Third time is a charm, right?

Making your own bread at home to me is very satisfying. Just last week I made my entire dinner from scratch. I had this leftover Italian Bread, I made spaghetti from scratch, a hearty bolognese, harvested my own lettuce and tomatoes and even made my own dressing. 100% from scratch. I had to pat my self on the back–it made me very self satisfied. Like I’ve accomplished a lot in life. The little things right? Oh, and I also realized that this isn’t ideal oh about 95% of the time. Because who has all day to cook a meal that is gobbled up in less than 30 minute?

      Thanks–I’m gonna give it a third try proofing with half the time. I think my oven just speeds up the process!

      • Terri/LoveandConfections replied on April 1st, 2013 at 4:35 pm

        google windowpane test for dough… if it tears, its not ready, if it doesn’t, then it is mixed enough. Also make sure when you form it, the skin is tight enough.

        • Katie replied on April 2nd, 2013 at 6:48 am

          Great to know–thanks Terri!
