1which starts with the humble egg but first we got a baked bread my escape here in Vermont has largely been dedicated to the baking of bread and this was no exception. it took me five tries to get a halfway decent sandwich loaf going, and I attribute this entirely to not measuring my ingredients by weights but instead by volume resulting in loaf after useless loaf. So let me take this opportunity out to come out loudly, and proudly in favor of using a kitchen scale in the pursuit of great bread. So you don’t end up with this crap we’re starting off our goodlove with 400 milliliters of water at 110 degrees Fahrenheit 100 milliliters of which we’re going to combine with a packet of instant yeast and half of our 650 grams of all-purpose flour, along with 50 grams of sugar, 5 grams of salt, and 45 grams of unsalted butter at room temperature stir to combine before adding the remaining 300 milliliters of water stirring again to form a pancake batter like paste adding the remainder of the flour.

Stirring one last time with our dough whisk until a shaggy dough forms that we will turn out onto a counter top and knead for seven to nine minutes until a smooth supple dough forms generously oil a large bowl plop our dough inside and roll around a little bit to make sure that it’s evenly coated in oil. So don’t have sticking issues down the line cover with plastic wrap. Let’s sit at room temperature for 45 minutes to 1 hour until the dough has doubled in size turn out onto a lightly floured countertop and punch down until it’s back to its original size and then start forming it in love. We want to sort of tuck it under itself to make a nice talk round top shove it into a loaf pan that’s been prepared with butter and parchment paper cover loosely with plastic wrap.

3We want to give this thing plenty of room to expand for another hour or until redoubled in size brush this beautiful blimp down with a bit of butter and place in a 400 degree fahrenheit oven for 25 to 35 minutes being extra polite. To Siri set a timer for 35 minutes please it’s good luck to be polite to Siri that or it’s good luck to measure by weight because we have here a perfectly shaped and risen loaf that measures 200 degrees Fahrenheit internally. That we’re going to brush down once again with melted butter and set aside until the morning for breakfast give it a little kiss goodnight before we go to bed get a good night’s sleep get in your comfiest jammies and wake up to a perfect metaphor of just how good and just how bad life can be when you’re baking volume wait learn the difference we had a nice crumb going here give you a touch and hack off a nice thick slice for our nest of the eggs in the nest.

4Now you could just stamp out the center using a glass or a mason jar but I like to cut it out because I want to preserve that centerpiece for some auxilary yo clubbing that was the hardest since I ever said melt a tablespoon and a half of butter or 45 grams of butter in a stainless steel skillet and coat both sides of the bread thoroughly with the butter. Before plopping down and letting sit for at least half of one of your favorite songs observe this all translates to about 2 minutes on medium low heat and then for a little flavor bonus round. I’m going to put a little dollop of bacon fat in the center of the bread before cracking the egg inside cranking the heat up to medium-high and jamming out for about 1 minute or 84 snaps in the case of this song and giving our guy a flip while we add our auxilary yolk mopper in for a little toast continue to cook for no more than 10 or 15 seconds on this side. While seasoning some kosher salt and preferably freshly ground but in this case some plain old black pepper. Now let’s grab a fork and knife and see if we did our job right oh yeah a runny egg freshly baked bread.
