Shock! Horror! I Made Bread!

I’m the first to admit I’m not very creative in the kitchen, so when Lucy at Attic 24 posted about the very easy Artisan Bread that she made I thought I might give it a go.  She often shares great, easy recipes.  Then I saw that Susan at Thimblestitch had successfully made a loaf, so that inspired me to buy some yeast.

Yeast!  As soon as I see it mentioned in a recipe, I move on.  I’ve tried hot cross buns a couple of times and they weren’t good.

Here it is.

It was OK, very easy, but I kind of rushed everything and didn’t measure all that accurately.  I think my mix was probably a little dry. Also, you use a very hot oven, but I think mine was actually too hot.  It was definitely edible and good with lots of butter.  I will certainly have another go, but when it is soup weather, not in the middle of a heat wave.

Looks good. There is a bread recipe out there which uses beer in place of yeast, that is very nice.

Well done Janice. This recipe surprised me too, it was really easy. Roll on winter so we can bake some more!
