around the table – Bread ( ! )

For some months I have been convincing myself that I was going to bake tasty home-baked bread (and save money )… week after week … time ran out in our days and we remained breadless…

Finally last week when day after day was a snow day … we found enough time to make bread … kind of … no-knead bread is new to me … I only just started hearing about it …. though it has been popular for some time with several new books being published this year alone about the methods.

When by chance I saw this short recipe in a baker’s catalog … a recipe taking no more space than a third of a page… I knew I would have time for baking bread. For really only fifteen or so minutes hands on work, we enjoyed four lovely baguettes (baked freshly almost every day for a whole week)!

 All the ingredients  …. (just flour, yeast, salt and water) are mixed together in a single container …. and that is the dough … a molten, globby dough that bubbles and rises over night by itself…. awaiting it’s time to turn into a golden loaf …

We had so much weather… that the baking days were extended to make this pretty loaf of challah (not a no-knead) … Baking bread is at least one way to be grateful for another snow day. Happy Baking !
