Casatiello recipe with mother yeast from of 15-04-2014 [Updated on 29-08-2018]
Could I never try to make casatiello with my mother yeast this year? Of course not! I started on Friday morning to make refreshments and then make the dough and put it to rise for the whole night, early Saturday morning I finished the work and I put the casatiello to rise for the whole day in the oven off, after " sole "20 hours of leavening, I baked and it was a success, this time everything went smoothly! Before using the mother yeast I really couldn't understand how it could be the brewer's yeast that could give food digestibility problems, on the contrary, I mocked a bit those who worried about making natural leavening so as not to weigh down the leavened products which then contained lard and salami as in this case and instead I had to change my mind, I got a light and very digestible dough despite its opulence :) If you can, try the recipe and let me know.
P.Š. However, I leave you the recipe of the casatiello that I prepare every year with brewer's yeast in case you don't have LM.
