Realized that I haven’t baked anything for little more than a month. The last I baked was on 12 mar for hubby’s birthday. So set out on baking. But in no mood for a cake and zeroed on a bread. I haven’t baked bread before and this is very much my first.
Its a love-hate affair I seem to have when it comes to baking. Every time I think of baking; the thought tires me up. But then when I get started off, I seem to enjoy this the most. I guess it’s a tactile thing. The bread turned out to be a hit. my daughter simply feasted on it. Now that has set me in a mood for more bread making. What better than a home made bread!
