more qucik white bread

Mixed up a full batch of quick white bread last night, with some mods:
  • Used unbleached bread flour instead of AP flour
  • Made sure water was warm (microwave in Pyrex measuring cup for about 1 minute)
  • Added about 1 tbsp of honey to the water
  • Dissolved yeast in honey water for a minute or two
  • Added about 2 tbsp vegetable oil to dough
  • Added 6 tbsp gluten
  • Added about 3 tbsp active sourdough starter
  • Let rise for 15 minutes before going into fridge, where it has remained (almost 12 hours so far)
Packing it up and taking it to June Lake with me!

EDIT 2009-04-10: turned out pretty well. With steam, it had a decent crust. Flavor still isn't nearly as fully developed as sourdoughs or grandmas bread. Rise time post-fridge should probably be 2 hours.
