Flowerpot Bread

It seemed an odd concept to me at first, baking bread in flowerpots, however if you think about it the ceramic pots probably hold the heat quite evenly. Today I finally found the time to bake this bread, and the outcome surprised me greatly.

The kit I had was Artisan Seeded Flowerpot Bread. After brushing the flowerpots with oil and baking them, I washed them and lined them with greaseproof paper. I mixed the flour with the yeast, water and some olive oil, and kneaded for 10 minutes, after which I split the mixture into four balls and put them into a flowerpot to rise for an hour.

After the dough had risen for an hour it was suppose to be double the size, I’m not sure mine rose that much but it seemed good enough to cook, so I baked it for the 25 minutes stated in the instructions.

The baked bread seemed very solid but after I turned the rolls out onto the board and cut into one I was surprised to find that the bread had an even consistency and tasted delicious!
