Homemade Bread

Does it look yummy?

My friend @ C.Beth has introduced me to bread making here, in a very easy way. Four ingredients is all you need for the first loaf of homemade bread! Flour, water, salt and yeast. Mix it and let it rise, then bake it. Sounds easy, right?

If you are into baking, here is the book that she has and I then ordered for myself: Artisan Bread in Five Minutes by authors Hertzberg and Fran├žois. Here is the link to their website.

I've been making this easy bread for the last months, and to be honest, it gets boring after a while, at least for me. The hubby and the kids still love it, so I have to make it. But for me, I am more of a whole wheat kind of girl, so I wanted to try new breads and experiment with them.

So I read through some recipes, went shopping and started to bake. The above picture is of a bread from the section 'Peasant Breads', it's called Deli-Style Rye, and it is delicious. The seeds are caraway - something every German just loves!!! (I am serious.) It is also just as easy as the other recipes that I have tried out. It's so simple that it makes me wonder why I haven't started to make my own bread much sooner.

Bon Appetit.
