Zorra from Kochtopf created a new monthly event: breadbakingday.
The theme for the 1st round: bread with herbs.
A great collection of bread recipes 03.11.2019 ** can be found at SpittonExtra 03.11.2019 **. Andrew asked for bread recipes 03.11.2019 ** for the 4 edition of Waiter there’s something in my …. 03.11.2019 **. There are recipes with sage, tarragon, basil, rosemary und thyme. Since my tarragon recovered from slug attack, it’s our favourite herb at the moment. So my contribution for this event is

Remove leaves from stalks and chop. Combine 3 tablespoons flour, yeast and buttermilk in a bowl to a batter and let stand for about 15 minutes until the first bubbles are coming up.

Add remaining ingredients including the tarragon and knead thoroughly. Then let rest in a warm place for 30 minutes, until the volume increased.

Knead again and shape to a round loaf and proof in a floured proofing basket until the dough slowly returns a gently made fingerprint.

Place in preheated 250 °C oven. After 10 minutes reduce heat to 200 °C and bake for further 25 minutes until the internal temperature has reached at least 90 °C.

Remove from oven and cool on a wire rack.
