The last time I made bread, I was struck by how wonderfully rewarding the whole process was. I don’t make enough bread. So, this is my first ever simple wholemeal bread, made to Britain’s bread king Paul Hollywood’s recipe. I shan’t type it out here for fear of copyright infringement; instead, I shall wholeheartedly recommend you buy his books. I think they’re utterly brilliant.
I made this loaf in preparation for a weekend with three mates in the blissful surroundings of a thatched cottage in The Cotswolds. I made a rookie mistake, insofar as I had woefully misjudged the culinary theme for the weekend, into which something as healthy as wholemeal bread clearly did not fit. But I had fun making it, and was glad of the opportunity to walk off a few calories round some astonishingly muddy fields with Suzzie, Amy and Martha. Photo diary follows…
Mmmm that bread looks delicious.
