The Accidental Hockey Puck

Sometimes it just doesn’t go according to plan. These loaves are small, tough and dense. You can see that the dough just isn’t happy when I was shaping my boules. Blah.

Was it that I let the dough rest overnight and it never really had enough time to warm up and become elastic? Was it that I used 100 grams of molasses, instead of a mix of honey, olive oil and molasses? Did my 300 grams of muesli just not work? Was my dough too dry?  Was the oven too cool?

Who knows. But I had better not do this too many more times or my reputation will fall inside the family, and everyone will start avoiding my bread. Not good.
