January's Bread 1
This is a picture of my first attempt at a simple recipe. The recipe calls for flour, salt, and yeast proofed in sugar water. After kneading and allowing to rise a first time, you simply put punch the dough down (very satisfying) and place the dough in a bread pan. Once the dough has risen to shape in the pan, the dough is ready to become bread. Place in the preheated oven and bake until it sounds hollow when rapped with the knuckles.
This is a relatively dense bread that can be sliced very thin for toast in the morning. I have been enjoying mine with preserves for breakfast. Another great way to use this bread is sliced a little thicker for sandwich making.
I am happy to say that this bread was quite enjoyable, and I will be making more in the future!
