The main difference between slow-rise bread and other simple breads that are made with flour, water, yeast and salt lies in the fact that it needs only a little mixing; the long rising time develops all the gluten needed to make the dough smooth and elastic. It’s among the easiest types of bread to make if you’re careful to use plenty of flour on the work surface and your hands when shaping it, as the dough is soft and sticky.
