Revisiting an Old Friend

Like I mentioned previously, I started blogging again partly because I found a lot of memories while browsing the blog for recipes. I am pretty active on Instagram so have been inspired by a lot of accounts, some of which feature talented bakers who churn out beautiful loaves of bread. That ignited the passion in me to start bread making again!

Before starting to blog again, I have already made 2-3 kinds of breads, mainly the soft loaves. It is only a matter of time before I venture back to my old love - artisanal European style loaves like this:

This is from an old recipe - the Beer Bread which I had made 8 years back. I chose this to start my hearth bread making because I went shopping with my sister at ToTT  recently and saw that they sell banetton baskets but these are really expensive! It reminded me of this boule, which I made the design using a plastic colander! No need to spend unnecessary $$.

Very happy with the final product, except I should have slashed the surface deeper so I get a more pronounced split. Never mind, more chances to practice that in the future.

All sliced up, resting on my baking stone, which has been safely stowed away all these years :D. Click here for this Beer Bread recipe. Note that I omitted the walnuts this time.

Used the bread to make a Tuna Avocado Sandwich
