I have been known to have bread and butter for dinner. Bread really is the one food I couldn’t live without, a low-carb evangelist I am not. Yet, I have only made yeasted bread once before. The real barrier for me is the time factor. I am not the most patient person in the world and the multiple risings really prevent me from fully embracing bread making (perhaps this is a good thing). However, since this week’s TWD was bread and I love it so, I decided to face my impatience head on. (It didn’t hurt that I was scheduled for a day in the kitchen anyways, as I threw my first high tea on the weekend).
Overall, this was super easy to make. I had the oven on all day so the rising was a cinch. I always get a little confused on the warm place but now I have this nailed down. The bread rose beautifully and I used it to make goat cheese and apple sandwiches for my high tea. The only thing that kept it being a 100% sucess was that there was that it had a bit too much air. Alas, perfection is overrated. My one adaption was that I used a maple sugar cinnamon mix instead of granulated sugar. Delish.
