Directions

  1. HI! I am Robert, Hermann’s big brother and your new family member for the next 10 days and hopefully longer!
  2. If you treat me right and feed me on time I will give you 3 Robert babies. I don’t like metal, so please use only glass or plastic bowls and a wooden spoon. I will grow a lot and unlike my brothers Hermann and Siegfried I feel very comfortable in your fridge!
  3. 1. Day Today I need to rest and get used to my new surroundings.
  4. 2. – 4. Day On these days I like to have a bit of exercise. Please stir me 1x each day with a wooden or plastic spoon.
  5. 5. Day I am hungry! Please feed me with 6 tbsp flour (100gr), 1 tbsp + 1 tsp sugar (20gr), ¾ cup + 2 tbsp milk (200ml) and stir until I am smooth again. (Remember, I will grow a lot! So make sure my bowl is big enough, otherwise I might run away from you!).
  6. 6. – 9. Day I really need some more exercise. Please stir me 1x each day with a wooden or plastic spoon.
  7. 10. Day Today is my big day! That makes me hungry. First I need to get fed again. Please give me 6 tbsp flour (100gr), 1 tbsp + 1 tsp sugar (20gr), ¾ cup + 2 tbsp milk (200ml) and stir until smooth.
  8. Now you have to split me into 4 equal portions. 2 of them you can give to friends or family that want to adopt me. 1 you keep for yourself to start over. You can even freeze me, if you’re too busy right now. When you’re ready again just defrost me and start with Day 1. The 4th portion you get to use for this recipe:.
  9. Using the basic bread ingredients listed above.
  10. Put everything together and knead well. Cover with a clean kitchen towel and let rest 30 minutes. Form into a bread loaf and let rest 15 minutes. Lightly dust with flour.
  11. Bake at 480°F/ 250°C for 20 minutes, then turn down to 350°F/180°C and bake for about 15 minutes.
