FOUGASSE

Ingredients:
500 grams strong bread flour
350 ml water
1 teaspoon dried yeast
1 tsp sea salt


Mix in the yeast into the flour, and then add the remaining ingredients and the water. Mix for a couple of minutes until the dough starts to form. Transfer the dough to a floured surface and continue to knead by stretching out and folding the dough over onto itself. Keep kneading until it stops sticking. Lightly flour the work surface, place the dough on the flour and form the dough into a ball. Place the dough into a mixing bowl, cover with a tea towel and let it rise for at least one hour.
Turn out gently onto a well-floured surface and carefully spread it out to into a square shape. Generously flour it and let it rest for 5 minutes. Divide the dough into two parts, then cut each piece again into three roughly triangular strips. Make a cut all the way down the centre of each dough triangle, without completely cutting through the dough, then make 3 deep slashes on either side of the central cut, cutting all the way down, and then gently open out the holes with your fingers and shake off the excess flour. Preheat oven to 220˚C with your baking tray inside. Lift the dough onto a lightly floured baking tray and slide onto the hot tray in your oven. Bake for 10 to 12 minutes until golden brown.

  3. Danas se nešto menjalo, pa malo ima problema :)
    Ukusan je hlepčić skroz, naročito ako ga pre pečenja premažeš umućenim belancetom i pospeš morskom solju :)

  6. Thank you for taking part. I'm glad I'm not the only one who struggled with the shaping. It looks worth the practice though.

    I had a few problems with shaping, but I think I did a good job in the end.
    I will make it again soon, just to practice :)

  12. Odlicno si je napravila, volim te tanke hlepcice posute ruzmarinom i krupnom morskom soli, pa jos ako uz to ima neki fini namaz, ne treba mi nista drugo.;))

  13. Na prvi pogled me je podsetila na lenju pitu sa jabukama i citam recept i sve trazim jabuke u sastojcima.;) Volim te kolace sa strinskim stihom, cula sam za Cupavu Radu (i Katu;)), ali nisam nikada pravila... tvoj receptek sam stavila na listu za probu, ovakvi kolaci mi bas nekako fino idu uz jesenju sezonu.;))

  14. Ja sa tim sastojcima pravim najobičniji hleb (bar ja to zovem hleb, možda je i pogača :)), ali onako u jednom komadu, najjednostanije. A ovo mi se baš dopada, probaću tačno ovako kako si napisala!
    Prelepo izgleda :)

  15. Thanks, Peggy & thelittleloaf :)

    Trudila sam se da pogodim oblik što više mogu i uspevala sam, ali u toku pečenja mi se malo promeni oblik :P

    I ja pravim hleb od ovog testa, najjednostavnije je i najukusnije, naročito uz sir :)

  17. Verovatno je bag bio neki :)
    Praviću sigurno opet, mnogo mi se sviđa tekstura kad se ispeče ovako tanko :)
