First REAL loaf of bread

We have messed around with Amish bread, friendship breads and a few other simple breads over time, but this was my first real go at making a loaf of bread. I was inspired by the pastries I had in France just a few weeks ago and instead of starting with the intricate work, I thought I would start with properly making a loaf of bread.

For my first loaf, I am very impressed. It is moist and tasty! Courtesy of aBreaducation | Your first loaf: an Easy Loaf Bread Recipe

Looks good, Ben. I hope you let it cool just a bit, then sliced it and slathered it with soft fresh butter.

Now...that's taste bud heaven!

I did let it cool. I actually didn't read ALL of the timing instructions when I started out.... so I finished a bit late. 11:30 to be exact. The next morning, however, we cut it open!

Good, job still and, I hope, you're proud of your accomplishment.

I've been making all our bread products for far too many years to count and, once you get the hang of it, you'll wonder why you thought it so challenging.

I could make a meal out of fresh-from-the-oven bread.

Nice loaf Ben! I have made bread since I was a child, and it is a skill that is passed on from generation to generation in our family. My oldest grandson is seven, and will need to get a lesson soon. Enjoy your bread baking, and don't be afraid to step out of your box and try some other flours too.

I am jealous of those who can bake. I can cook, but I would never claim to be a pastry chef or baker.
Nice job Ben.

baking is excellent for control freaks. I get to micro manage each step of the recipe and I'm rewarded with perfection, or near perfection almost every time!
