Before starting to blog again, I have already made 2-3 kinds of breads, mainly the soft loaves. It is only a matter of time before I venture back to my old love - artisanal European style loaves like this:
This is from an old recipe - the Beer Bread which I had made 8 years back. I chose this to start my hearth bread making because I went shopping with my sister at ToTT recently and saw that they sell banetton baskets but these are really expensive! It reminded me of this boule, which I made the design using a plastic colander! No need to spend unnecessary $$.
Very happy with the final product, except I should have slashed the surface deeper so I get a more pronounced split. Never mind, more chances to practice that in the future.
All sliced up, resting on my baking stone, which has been safely stowed away all these years :D. Click here for this Beer Bread recipe. Note that I omitted the walnuts this time.
Used the bread to make a Tuna Avocado Sandwich
