I entertained some friends last night as a low key late birthday celebration. I’d gone and done a big shop and the supermarket had no fresh bread!
I got home and decided to make my own, as I’d got all the ingredients. I have made bread before, so it didn’t phase me, but I hadn’t done it for a while and I’ve had a few failures with bread in the past!
I just followed a basic recipe, but switched about 100g of the white bread flour for wholemeal which had been sat in the back of the cupboard. I think it worked quite well, adding a bit of extra flavour.
My knife wasn’t really sharp enough to do the scores properly on the top, which was a shame.
I got some really nice comments from my friends, so overall I think it was a resounding success.
