I have posted a few different types of bread before, here is the Braided Bread recipe, and just last week I did Sprouted Whole Wheat Bread. My friend, Anita, over at Craftastico on Facebook, baked this super simple and quick loaf of bread taught to her by her friend Julie Bangart Newell. I told her how great it looked and she told me that I should make it and write about it on my blog! So, I did and it is just as good as she said. Since I was using our leftover ham bone from Christmas to make Navy Beans and Ham today, I felt like this bread would be the perfect accompaniment for it.
This recipe gave me an excellent reason to use my new Kitchen Aid! I have the tilt-head variety like this one. My daughter has the kind where the bowl lifts. Either one is terrific, it is a matter of personal preference. I also have a Bosch for mixing large quantities of bread, but when the recipe is only for a couple of loaves, the Kitchen Aid is just the ticket!
Here is Julie's simple recipe and a few picture tips. Push the button for the printable recipe and click the pictures for tips:
As you can see, my cookie sheets are becoming very well seasoned. I am thinking of replacing them. These Circulon ones have very good reviews on Amazon. Has anyone had any experience with them? In the meantime, I will still enjoy the fruits of my labors off of my old pans. I hope you try this recipe, it is great bread in about an hour.
