Here is the goal; I will bake 12 new, and different, loaves of bread in 2013. I'm pretty excited about this!! I can almost smell all those different loaves baking. Here we go, wish me luck!
For my first ever, completely from scratch loaf, I decided to go for something basic. I used this recipe from BBC Good Food; this is a site I use often, you can filter things down to vegetarian and vegan friendly recipes which is super helpful.
Lessons Learnt: I had a tough time getting it out! A little of the bottom was torn off. I dusted the tin with flour before baking maybe I need more, or maybe I need an alternative. I also learnt you need a hell of a lot of patience to bake bread.
Verdict: I substitute the white flour for strong wholemeal bread flour. I read this would make it a little denser; which it did, but that didn't ruin it! Tasted great. Perfect for soup dipping. I'm very proud. I can't wait to get onto the next one.
