I’ve been interested in learning how to bake bread for some time, but never got beyond the simple no yeast, no kneading recipes. Sarah has been reading a lot of food blogs and dabbling with baking lately, so she came over this past weekend to hang out for a bit and give me a bread baking lesson. We tackled two recipes that resulted in four perfectly baked loaves – it was a success!
One of the recipes was for whole wheat potato bread using a recipe Sarah found on a food blog a while back. It turned out great! Tasty, moist, and evenly baked, with small chunks of potato scattered throughout the loaf. The other recipe was for anadama bread from a book Sarah owns called the Bread Baker’s Apprentice. The dough was quite sticky and took some time to knead, but in the end we had success again with two delicious loaves.
So, now I can consider myself to be the apprentice to the bread baker’s apprentice :) Thanks, Sarah!
