I made some bread yesterday. It turned out fairly well. I used my Kitchen Aid mixer for the first part of the build process, then hand-kneaded.
The recipe I used was this one:
One thing I forgot to do was add the olive oil but I’m not convinced it made a huge difference. I used Doves Farm organic flour since I try to avoid pesticides.
Anyway, I had a slice of it toasted for breakfast this morning and it was fine.
I’ll make some more tomorrow. This time I might add some herbs to the mix. Possibly a few olives too. I’d like to use unsalted black olives but I can’t find any at a reasonable price so I’ll go with what I have.
Making your own bread isn’t much cheaper than buying it from the supermarket, in fact it the cost is probably about the same once you factor in electricity for the oven.
Nonetheless, there’s something satisfying about making your own, so I think I’ll continue.
