Attempt at Wheat Bread

It actually came out pretty good! I have had this wheat flour sitting around in my kitchen for weeks, without any loaf pans to turn it into wonderful wheat bread goodness. Finally i decided to check if Berkeley Bowl sold loaf pans, that i liked. Answer = yes. Also = "YEA! I get to make bread". The breading was started in the early afternoon. The recipe was easy, kneading was fun, and the bread tastes awesome! I'm really enjoying this new found freedom with baking my own bread. Yummy!

I followed this recipe and changed it to only two loaves. I don't think J and i really needed 3 all to ourselves ; )

Bread done!

I only cooked the loaves for 30 minutes. They could have used another 5-10 to get a bit crisper. Next time i'm planning to substitute the honey for some rice syrup, lookin for yummy vegan bread.

Rosemary Peasant Bread | Recipe

Sarah brought some of this over to our house a few weekends ago. It was gone before we got up from the table, delicious!!!

I had never had a good experience making bread. I asked Sarah for a Bread Making class to get me pointed in the right direction. Last weekend she taught, i listened, we made a basic bread recipe. It was super tasty and wonderful! The bread was used all week for toast and sandwiches. I felt it was time to take a crack at the amazing Rosemary bread...

She has shared the recipe, and the bread has been made. It's super yummy! Off to buy cheese to eat all of the bread. Rosemary Peasant Bread
