Total time:

150 min

Servings:

4 Portions

Ingredients:

As required Water at room temperature
Fine salt
Fresh beer yeast
1 Teaspoon of sugar
For the croutons
12 Slices of Bread
2 Abate pears
50 g of Butter
As required Balsamic vinegar

PREPARATION

1

Take the beer yeast and start diluting it with a teaspoon of sugar in some water.

Subsequently, take a bowl and pour in it the flour, the diluted yeast and some water. Start kneading, until the water will be completely absorbed.

At this point add some salt and knead until the dough will detach from the bowl. Now, sprinkle with some flour and cover it with a cloth, by letting it raise for about 90 minutes, protected from air currents and at a mild temperature.

4

Once risen, take the dough out from the bowl and place it on a tray covered with some baking paper. Form a loaf and put it in preheated oven at 250°C for about 25-30 minutes. Take the bread out from the oven when it is cooked and brown. Once cold, it is ready to be cut.

As soon as the croutons are ready, place them in a plate and spread the stracchino on them. Add pear slices on each piece of bread. Pour some vinegar before serving.
