When baking, can you please clarify where the tray with water goes- either directly underneath on same rack or on a different rack? I just can’t picture this. Thank you!

Hi Eddy, I tried this recipe but something must be missing. 2 cups of flour for 1/2 cup water just didn’t work at all. At the end I had to discard of the bread because all I could smell was the yeast. I made the caralhotas de Almeirim and it turned out delicious. Keep posting the great articles and recipes. Always looking forward to your posts. Thank you 😊

I'm sorry to hear that Ana, I really am, I double checked the recipe and it is correct. Did you use active dry yeast?
