I got the day off today and decided to create a monster! (of the yummy variety)
This is the recipe for the Pillow Loaf as described in Alton Brown's I'm just here for more food.
This is my second attempt at this recipe. I'm still working on it as we speak.
I wish I had gotten a before picture but here it is after about one and a half hour rise time (actually a little more, but the timer had already gone off).
That is in a 13in diameter metal mixing bowl. It was roughly half that size when I put it there. I took the bus into town to do some Valentines Day shopping and that is what I came home to!
Now here it is after a 2nd kneading and loafed up onto a half hotel sheet with another one and a half hour rise time to go. (I accidentally digressed from the recipe)
It is to bake for 20-25 minutes when it is through with it's second rise. I'll keep you all posted if anyone is interested
