In other news, it has taken six hours, SIX, for this pane al cioccolato dough to ferment. Just for that I think ninja dog should definitely make this bread seeing as how she actually has the natural starter required for this bread and it only takes two hours with a bubbly, active starter as opposed to my improvised biga. It's going to take at least another two hours for it to proof so it can finally go into the oven.
I mixed the dough nice and early and hoped to at least be done or close to done with proofing by this time. Oy.
