I love bread. Bread, rolls, baguettes, French breads, Italian breads, rustic breads, you name it. I feel almost incomplete if there is no bready carbs sitting on my counter. It’s my security blanket if you wish.
The white store-bought bread is not only not attractive but tasteless to me so I try to bake my own whenever possible. I have tried many many recipes for many many different kinds of bread goodness. I have my favorites that I hope to share on CCS. I want to spread the home-baked bread love. Are you in?
Just recently, I stumbled upon a recipe for Easy French Bread on Alaska From Scratch blog. Have you visited Maya’s blog? It will make you feel welcomed and right at home. Just like her Easy French Bread. I just had to try it.
Oooh, I am so glad I did! It came together fast. It had a crunchy crust and fluffy and delicious center. Perfection in it’s bready best!
I have to say, I hesitated a little before I threw the 1/2 cup of water on my oven’s floor. But it worked and I will try this trick with other recipes. I encourage you to try Maya’s recipe. I didn’t change it a bit besides adding a teaspoon of sugar to the warm water before adding yeast. I always do that, because yeast love sweets and they bubble up faster.
Will you make some fresh home-baked bread?
What is your favorite type of bread?
