It all started a week before my birthday when I first saw "Artisan Bread in Five Minutes a Day" while lost in Blogland. The more I researched, the more I knew that I needed this book!
I made these loaves from the basic boule recipe right after the first rise... I let the bread rise again directly on a parchment-covered cookie sheet and it turned out great! Making this bread was so effortless! Just take a look at this video!
Then I made a HUGE cinnamon bun which didn't even make it to the photoshoot! Next I made some Cinnamon Apple Walnut filled buns which I was inspired to make after reading the Spicy Pork Bun recipe.
I finished off the boule by making 2 of the most delicious pizzas I have ever tasted!
It was torture taking all these photos and my husband was giving me dirty looks!
This week I am trying an adaptation of the Peasant Loaf. I used 5 cups of unbleached flour, 1 cup of whole wheat flour and 1/2 cup of multigrain cereal and sprinkled the large loaf with the cereal. Yum!
