Last time I had a giveaway, I offered a consolation prize in the form of my autumn crumble recipe. Today I am sharing another recipe – am I starting a trend here? If you didn’t win the giveaway, rest assured you’ll have a tasty treat to soothe the soul? – this is for a delicious, shockingly easy homemade bread.
I happened upon this absolutely scrumptious loaf from Amjaylou’s blog, and she made it after seeing it here. This recipe sounds too good to be true – flour, salt, yeast and water, but no kneading! Saturday night the girlies measured the ingredients into the bowl, and we stirred it into a gloppy dough. Covered with cling film and left it overnight. The recipe recommends about 15 hours, and this is what we had Sunday morning
We plopped it onto the floured countertop, formed it into a bowl and let it set another half hour.
Then we popped it in a hot casserole dish, and about 45 minutes later we had this!
What would Paul Hollywood make of this?
I can’t believe how good this tasted for being so simple to make. A very chewy crust, soft centre that wasn’t doughy or underdone (“That’s a good bake,” I hear the Silverback saying...). There is half a slice left today, and it has my name on it.
Thank you all so much for your caring comments the past few days on our family colds...we’re still quite run down with this virus, but we’re at least happy in each other’s company, and Bunny is doing some stitching with me! More on that later...now I need to get my Hexagon Throw started for the CAL. What will you be crocheting?
