Sinna's Famous Bread

...with the proper humidity holes.

you will have to get a measuring cup that shows the metric.

6 dl warm water (believe this is a little more than 2 cups)
25 grams yeast (she says this is half a packet in sweden--i'd use a whole one for good measure in the US, might be wussy yeast)
2 tsp. salt
1,3 dl bread flour (i think she means kilos here--so that's 2+ pounds of flour)

mix it together, let it rise at least 2 hours. knead it again and put it on the baking sheet. let it "rest" 15 minutes, then bake it at 250-275 (that's C and it's a pretty hot oven) for 15 minutes. then, turn down the heat to 150 C and bake another 30-40 minutes--you'll know it's done when it's hard and crispy on the underside--you can tell if you knock on it.

i don't think you can go wrong with this.

good luck.

You can tell the bread is done by knocking on it? What happens when you knock on it? Does someone answer and say, "I'm done!"
