I left you in my previous post with a tease of delicious, freshly baked bread. I found a new bread recipe in my ventures in the internets and I finally made it on Friday. Food Processor Ricotta Bliss Bread is an easy recipe that requires a small amount of effort and a little dough rising time. I don't have a large capacity food processor so I followed the directions for a mixer. I baked just half of the recipe and refrigerated the other half of the dough. That saved dough is now resting on my kitchen counter and will be baked this morning. I will let you know if the flavor develops more from the rest in the 'frig. The first image is half of the dough prepared for the last hour rise. The mixer did 99 percent of the kneading, only a bit of kneading was required after the first rise. I like to knead bread, but not kneading is considerably less messy.
The recipe makes two one-pound loaves, which is fine for the two of us. The texture of the bread is soft but it can be sliced thinly yet hold together. We ate about a third of the loaf Friday night after it had cooled an hour. *sliced with butter* *yum* It does have a mild cheese flavor because of the ricotta cheese. Toasting the bread brings out the cheese flavor more. DH loves it.
