Another new years’ resolution accomplished!
In the last week, I’ve made two different types of bread, one from a King Arthur Flour cookbook for Hibernian brown bread and the other from a recipe from a friend for a traditional yeast bread.
The Hibernian Brown Bread was super easy, and I made it because I had all the ingredients just laying around. Handy, right? I like how easy it is, although it isn’t my favorite bread. The final result is really dense. It tasted good with jam or honey, but by itself was a bit too much.
The traditional yeast bread was from a friend, and was mostly good. I used a bit too much salt, and overfloured while kneading, but it was still really yummy. I plan to make it again using roasted garlic and rosemary, as my friend originally made it for me. With less salt, of course! This bread has to rise for 12-20 hours, so it’s a bit more time consuming to make, but otherwise is super easy.
