Last weekend's bread experiment



I think I actually first saw this recipe in the newspaper, but after seeing the results (and that it was so easy a 4-year-old could do it) on Jaden's Steamy Kitchen, I decided to give it a try. You can find one of her entries on it here, but I also suggest looking at some of the others. Not to mention all the other delicious looking things at the site!

For a first attempt, I'm pretty pleased. I think my yeast might have been a little anemic and I had the pot a little too close to the top elements in the oven (hence the very dark brown parts on the top), but overall I'm happy with it. The flavor was quite good!

Thanks! I'm going to try it a couple more times and once I get the basic version down, I'm going to start getting fancier. Of course, I had to wait until the weather started to get warmer to get on a baking kick...
