So like every other foodie blogger in the universe, I too had to try the Bittman bread.
It claims to be no fail.
Anyway, I gave it a whirl. But my batch turned out funky and blobby and too wet and didn't rise. Well maybe after I forgot about it and let it out to rise for about 22 hours it rose and then fell again...
I gave up and threw the whole malakka into a glass jar and into the fridge it went. At the very least it was going to become a starter sponge.
WELL after two days that malakka seemed to grow of its own accord.
So I said "f*ck it", pulled it out, let it rise again (which it did) and I baked it off.
Holy crap, it totally worked out!! And it was pretty good!
I have pictures to prove it too, which I'll post later.
So, there you go - truly no fail bread.
