Just baked my first loaf of bread from Artisan Bread in Five Minutes a Day.
My sister-in-law Emily, got me this book for Christmas and I've been aching to try it out. Thank goodness for three snow-days to bake! I decided to make the Light Whole Wheat Loaf (as in it has a light amount of wheat not that's light in calories although it's not super caloric but it is bread... but anyways).
I only remembered half way through the process to actually take pictures (thanks hubby for reminding me).
|Here's the halfbaked in the oven shot (ew gross dirty oven door, sorry!).|
The bread was remarkably easy to make. No kneading or machines required. I just put all the ingredients in a big bowl and stirred until combined, let rise for 2 hours, then into the fridge to bake at my leisure.

Delicious! Nice crispy crust and soft moist crumb inside. Would be great for grilled cheese or a sandwich. YUM!
