Baking Bread is Simple Brainy Art!

Remember this basic bread recipe?

Best Brainy Dough Recipe

7 cups of flour
4 tsp sea salt – fine
2 and 1/4 tsp dry yeast
3 cups water (100 degree temperature)

Mix warm water and yeast first, then add flour, salt and sugar. 
Fold together and let rise for at least 8 hrs; and can stay refrigerated for up to 18 hrs.

If you want to make a Focaccia bread, just pull some of the dough (amount you want to use) and literally plop it down on an oiled pizza pan and bake at 425 for about 35-40 min. 

If you want to make a desert bread like 'Pane al Cicoccolata' then add a tbs of sugar and the same of cocoa powder to another portion of dough and either fold in some chocolate chips or lavishly grated dark chocolate; or you could just sprinkle bits on top. Bake for about the same amount of time on 425 turning the heat down to 375 after the first 10 mins. 

 * have some fluffy butter or mascarpone cheese ready to spread...
