How to get Blisters on Your Bread Crust – Bubble Crust

I have been called the queen of blisters…. ha ha ha! I love it! Now if you are from those countries where bread crust blisters are considered a fault, then you might want to skip this post.  

Here in the USA we love blistered crust, holey crumb and sour tangy flavor in our sourdough bread.  Who cares if the bread won’t hold our sandwiches together? If you can stick a finger through those holes in the crumb, you are rightly proud, and for good reason.

Now I like all kinds of crumb in my bread, but my favorite is moderately large holey crumb to eat plain with butter or use as dipping bread for soup.

.Holey crumb bread slices can hold my sandwich together because I either use pesto or olive oil or nothing for a sauce on my sandwich.

The following videos will help you achieve a blistery crusty loaf. So, without further ado, here is a little excerpt video from my course (Learn to Bake Classic Breads: Artisan Sourdough) :

  1. I enrolled in the Bake Real Artisan Sourdough Bread Like a Professional course a year ago, and started well untill my life fell apart with multiple serious family health crises. Then my kitchen fell apart around me because the renovation was so long delayed. 🙁
    Even when I couldn’t physically do anything I read through the notes, looked at the videos and absorbed so much valuable information, finding something new every time I went back to it.
    So now, when I can finally put it into practice, I feel well prepared. The course is waiting patiently for me, well organised and encouraging, and am so pleased to have it to motivate and guide my sourdough journey. And to find this passionate and sharing community.
    Thank you. 🙂
