We ran out of bread on the weekend.
The children were away at camp, so I decided to figure out how to bake my own.
I tried making a "no knead" bread from Mark Bittman--all I got as a bitter brick.
For my second attempt, I spent some time on the internet reading about yeast and so on. I found this lovely article in the Guardian and decided to try the recipe at the end.
(I didn't have a Vitamin C tablet, so I left that out.)
It makes the most delicious toast.
I made another loaf yesterday--and it was even bigger. I'm not sure how long I'll keep this up, but it is nice to know that I don't have to worry about running out of bread ever again.
