What is the worst thing that can happen to a home bread baker? A broken oven! That happen to me. Okay not exactly broken but since I cleaned the oven two weeks ago the door isn’t closing properly. Half of the heat escapes through the open joint – a nightmare!
Fortunately I have a kind of MacGyver* at home. He came up with this idea.
A broomstick fixes and closes the oven door properly.
*For younger reader MacGyver was a television series in the mid eighties about the adventures of a secret agent armed with almost infinite scientific resourcefulness.
With this fix I could bake our current favorite loaf of bread for the 7th edition of World Bread Day.
The first time I baked this bread was in 2006, then again in 2007 and recently in August of this year. Ever since I baked it a couple of times. Obviously we love it!
It takes a bit of time, especially if you have to reanimate your sourdough but it worth it.
To accelerate the process you can add a little bit of yeast, as I do.
