Fresh Bread

Fresh Bread in the Morning

Last night (Monday) I was a little bit surprised when I looked at TWD site and found that people had already posted about their baking of the recipe:  White Loaves.  I was just beginning to think about baking and what I would need to do, and here were people who had already baked and blogged.  Also, I hadn’t considered the time difference for people in like, say, the UK.  So, like I said, I was a bit surprised.   Anyway, it was fun to read the early posts.  In fact, the early posts let me in on the fact that this makes a stiff dough that might be hard on my mixer, so I should plan to take it easy.  I have an old K-Tec Kitchen Champ 2000 that I have used for years.  When I began my bread, it did have a bit of difficulty with the mixing and kneading but in the end it did very well,  I was very pleased with the clear concise directions in the cookbook as I had just bought it last night, just  in time to get started today.  Well, here it is Tuesday and I have to say Hooray!  The bread came out beautifully.  I feel like a proud parent….

So here’s my picture and btw, it is delicious!

      Thanks for the comment…I read about your bread too. How lucky and fun for you to be baking with your little one! My girls are grown and nearly grown (but still fun). Won’t this be a fun adventure (TWD)! Looking forward to baking and blogging!

        I’m glad you are keeping up a Haver tradition of baking bread. You were always the great baker in the family. I hope sometime to taste your wonderful creations! This sounds like fun.

    There was definitely an overwhelming response on the first LYL.
    This book definitely is a keeper and filled with solid recipes.

    Hi Rachel, When do we get to taste this beautiful creation and I do mean beautiful? Anna just now told us about your bread baking excursion. I think that you are a chip off the old block. Dad

    Gorgeous bread! A few people were so excited about posting that they jumped the gun. 😉 You are welcome to bake at any point up to a given Tuesday and then just post on Tuesday.

    Lovely loaves! I was also a little worried about the KitchenAid during the kneading cycle, but it all turned out well in the end.
