THE quarantine recipe: Cocotte bread🥖🏠

Cocotte Bread

So called "Cocotte Bread" is THE quarantine star recipe. So I tried it! And I have to say that it actually works. I used to make lots of bread 10 years ago when I lived in the UK and I would have loved to have that recipe. Baking the bread in a cocotte keeps it soft and avoids it from drying.

  • 300 g water
  • 15 g fresh yeast
  • 510 g flour ( (55 type, you can mix with up to one third of some other flour such as chestnut, maize, etc.))
  • 2 teaspoons salt
  • 10 g butter
  1. Put water and yeast in your thermomix or baking robot.

  2. Add flour and salt on top.

  3. Knead for 5 to 10 minutes.

  4. Place in a large bowl.

  5. Leave to rise covered with a cean cloth for at least 1 hour, or even better, overnigth in the fridge. A long and slow rise helps develop even more aroma.

  6. Work the dough in order to release all gas and bubbles in it.

  7. Shape into an oval or ound ball and place in your cocotte previsouly greased with somme butter.

  8. Using a sharp knife, make thin cuts in the bread.

  9. Using a brush, slightly moister the top of your bread.

  10. Place in the cold oven and bake fo one hour at the highest temperature (250°C).

  11. You can keep this bread 2 to 3 days, protected from air in a clean cloth.
