After five very enjoyable series of Great British Bake Off, I finally got round to making bread! On a quiet afternoon, with nothing better to do, I experimented by making a white loaf from the GBBO recipe book. This poor recipe book has sat in my cupboard, looking pretty for years but not being used, so I felt great using it.
After a quick walk to the local shop, I was ready to get started. I followed the simple recipe, preferring to knead the dough myself. I tried to find the inner Hollywood with my knead technique however I’m sure I looked like a complete idiot! I left it to rise and it actually got bigger! Eventually I put it in the oven and ta-dah… here is the end result. I’m pretty impressed actually, and we enjoyed sandwiches for the next couple of days with homemade bread!
