How was your weekend? We had dinner with friends on Friday and the rest of the weekend was pretty laid back, although productive. As I mentioned here we went shopping for new prints to hang in our house, which turned out to be a successful trip. We spent the remainder of the weekend hanging pictures, rearranging decor, laundry and grocery shopping to prepare for the week. Yesterday was cold and rainy which I took as the perfect opportunity to stock our freezer with homemade waffles for Scottie and Bran muffins to pull out for a quick and healthy breakfast. Our weekend clearly wasn’t overly exciting but it felt good to get some things done around the house. Now it’s March and I can see the light at the end of the tunnel for the arrival of Spring. Bring on the warmer weather.
Enough about my weekend let’s get to the good stuff. Last Friday Elizabeth came over again for another baking adventure. Like last time we chose to use a recipe from Annie’s Eats website seeing as how her recipes never disappoint. We ended up making two different loaves this one and this one but unfortunately the Light Wheat Bread is the one that really worked out for us.We weren’t able to get the other bread to rise which I’m sure had everything to do with me and not the recipe we chose to use. I may have to make it my mission to cook every whole wheat bread recipe out there so I can master working with yeast and the rising of the bread.
This Light Wheat Bread however, turned out beautifully with a perfectly made crust and a soft and chewy interior.
It’s embarrassing how excited I get over homemade bread so I may or may not have done a little dance around the kitchen when I pulled this baby out of the oven.
To get the recipe for Light Wheat Bread go to Annie’s Eats website.
