I had so much fun making bread yesterday I just had to do it again today to learn from my mistakes. Today was perfect. I made two loaves and on one I decided to get fancy making 3 strands and weaving them. Both loaves are great and I had a blast again. It's a lot cheaper than buying bread from the store and it's not hard at all. The only thing I might try next time is to use 'bread' flour instead of all purpose flour. I would get more 'rise' but the bread flour costs almost 3 times as much. I'm sure I will stick with the cheaper route as I am very pleased with what I got today. First pic is just before going in the oven, after letting the loaves rise for about 30 minutes. The second pic is right out of the oven. I got the golden color by spraying the loaves with cooking spray just before going in and the last one is the end cut off (after I had eaten what I cut off).
