  • 1 tsp. Sugar

The Recipe, step-by-step on how to make your Crispy Bread using Brewer's yeast

  1. Combine 300 g plain flour, 100 g wholemeal flour, and 7 g salt in a mixing bowl.

  2. Dissolve a teaspoon of sugar and 3 g of fresh brewer's yeast in 300 mL of warm water.

  3. Pour the yeast into the flour, swirl with a spoon, and then work the dough in the bowl for 5 minutes, mixing the spoon's ingredients. Don't worry if it results in a sticky dough; It is as it should be.

  4. Cover the bowl with plastic wrap and set it aside for 5 hours to rise.

  5. After the timer goes off, use a spatula to transfer the dough to an adequately floured surface. It is critical to flour thoroughly to function the bread, which is very soft and abounds in flour.

  6. Make a round of folds by tucking in the dough as seen in the shot, first, on the one hand, then the other, and finally, from top to bottom.

  7. Roll the loaf, flour the worktop properly, cover with a bowl, and set aside for about 1 hour.

  8. Preheat the oven to full static strength to ensure the baking stone is hot enough before you place your bread on it.

  9. NEXT TWO POINT ONLY If you don't have a baking stone, you can use a sizeable metal rectangular tray.

  10. When it hits the temperature, carefully remove the tray from the oven, place the bread inside with your hands, and carefully lay it on the tray, not breaking the leavening bubbles.

  11. Before placing the dough in the oven, lightly slash the top with a sharp knife or razor blade (Called Scoring). This will give your bread the classic artisanal look while allowing it to expand evenly during baking.

  12. Bake the bread for 10 minutes at full power, then reduce to 200 ° C and continue for 35-40 minutes, covering with foil if the bread above seems burning.

  13. Lower the temperature to 170 ° C and keep baking for 10-15 minutes more.
