Just a quick follow-up from yesterdays post. I made a hybrid loaf of wholemeal bread this morning, and it came out great. I think it could have risen a little more on the top, but otherwise it looks and smells great. I used the same recipe as I listed in the previous post, but instead of cutting it into 8 portions, I just put the dough into a well greased large loaf tin, and punched it down. I then put it in a slightly warm oven to rise, and then cooked it at 190 degrees C for 25 minutes. Here is the finished result in all its glory.
I love the smell of bread baking in the oven, and the taste of a fresh steaming slice with butter! It helps remind me that it is the simple things in life that are the best.
