I had the "Artisan Bread in 5 minutes a day" book sent over to me in the UK to give it a try.... I tried the mix three times and was totally disappointed every time! The mix just came out of the fridge like soup, and I ended up having to add tons of flour and kneading the heck out of it to resuscitate it!

But.... reading your post has convinced me to try it again. The more I think about it, I think the problem is probably the difference in flour we can buy here in the UK. UK grown flour is a lot lighter with less proteins - I'm going to head over to the posh supermarket and pick up some "Canadian Strong" flour - which (I think) is the same as the plain ol' All Purpose flour I used to use in Canada. Wish me luck :)


Hi Jennifer - good luck! I've had to tweak the recipe a little bit too. Check out the website - there are a whole bunch of corrections and mixing tips on there. Have you tried baking the 'soup' :)? I poured mine into a bread pan, and it still turned out.

Give it another try! It's so different from other breads that there's a bit of a learning curve involved with it.

Thanks for visiting!
