This Week's Bread

I'm back on my schedule of baking bread every week.
So I have a very happy husband.  

Moe hasn't had to eat "bought" bread since the beginning of April.

I knead up a double (eight cup) or triple (12 cup) batch of dough 
at the beginning of the week and then 
bake three or four loaves at a time over the next three days. 

Each batch is started with an overnight "Biga" which adds another 2 cups of dough to the mix.

This weeks batch I subbed in two cups of semolina flour.

  1. Ann, your bread is so beautiful. I can just imagine how delicious it is. Your recipes, photos, and cutting boards ROCK!

  2. That little hen is pretty darn cute too:)

  3. Thanks Monique. I'm so happy that you are posting again.

    Brenda, thank you. I hope you are putting your board to good use.


  4. "hasn't had to eat 'bought' bread" --- that sentence has such a lovely feel to it! I wish I had the time or conviction to bake fresh bread every week. I can only imagine how rewarding that must be! But, I did make a garlic boule last week so I still have hope. :-D

  5. Your blog is one of the best blogs.
    I would like to come back again.
    I am sure of that you are also glad to help every other.
    Thank you for sharing!
