And the money shot
I was keen to recreate the flavour, crumb and crust of Swiss loaves - I miss bread from home terribly. And I think I've succeeded!
Wow Anna - that looks amazing... well done!
What are you going to eat with it? Soup, pasta, salad... looks like it will make fab toast too...
O yum! Lovely loaf! Congratulations! Delicious and nostalgic too!
Frizz, this is a great little recipe: http://www.guardian.co.uk/lifeandstyle/ … ttingstall (The top one, open-faced croque madames). I think this bread will be perfect for it.
Thanks Joy, I was really rather proud of myself.
Wonderful job Anna, that looks fab. I'd love a big doorstep of that slathered with Heinz Sandwich Spread.
My youngest daughter has just started work at a lovely bakery that makes all kinds of proper bread so hopefully before long she'll be allowed to bring home some treats. I've heard that the staff are allowed to take $5 worth after each shift which will be very nice, fingers crossed there'll be a Ploughman's Sourdough left at the end of the day!
That looks fab - I'm guessing it's a sourdough? I'm just eating a big slice of my warm sourdough now with butter and raspberry jam. Yum! Here's mine:
