|Raisin / cinnamon bread|
For Christmas my dad got me a book called The Bread Bible by Rose Levy Beranbaum. This is a 640 page book. I realize that Christmas is still 2 months away, but since I went to California last week, my dad gave me my Christmas gifts early. And...since I was spending 8+ hours at my moms bedside, it was a great opportunity to read this great book. I know that reading a recipe book isn't normally what one does, but it is FULL of incredible information - from the science to what makes bread bread, to tricks of the trade, and even pointers for success. So, the day after I got back from California I started...
So far I have made:
White sandwich bread
raisin / cinnamon bread
sourdough starter (waiting for it to fully ferment)
|Beer bread - look at all those airy holes! Yum!|
