Look who made bread? Without a bread machine!
I used to make bread with a bread machine. And I love them. Now, I wanted to try making it “manually”. And it just so happen that the April issue of Healthy Food Guide (UK edition) has a super simple recipe for homemade bread. Game on!
The recipe called for all white bread flour. But I always like the chew and the wholesome taste of wholemeal bread, so I used a 3:1 ratio of white bread flour to whole meal flour. The bread turned out great! And much bigger than I expected. I had to freeze 3/4 of it cause there is no way Kai and I can finish all of them before they turn bad. Even after freezing, they taste awesome. They have a nice chew, and is not very dense at all. I just pop them in the toaster and spread on some butter.
In retrospect, I feel that it’s missing something. I don’t know what yet, but I’d try to tweak the recipe just a tiny bit next time. Will let you all know.
