I can't believe I have been on this breadmaking journey for THREE years. I guess time flies when you're having fun? I made my very first loaf of bread while on c***d lockdown and I would have never guessed I would come to enjoy it so much. Like so many others, I could not find bread in my area and decided to give breadmaking a try because "how hard could it be". I have come to find out, bread making ca definitely be difficult depending on the type of bread you're making, but luckily I cam across a fool-proof recipe from Julia Child that worked great for me. I have adapted that iconic recipe and I'm sharing it with you today!
Even if you don't plan to completely eliminate store bought bread from your household (I don't), I still hope you will give this recipe a try. Nothing compares to the smell of fresh bread baking in the oven and the taste of fresh bread is something you really have to experience, even if its just once. Don't forget to tag my socials when you make this. I cant wait to see what you create!
