I finally broke down and bought my self the book Artisan Bread in Five Minutes a Day.
It is wonderful and I highly recommend it. No more buying packaged bread for me. And my house smells like a bakery. However it is a bit dangerous because bread makes my butt big and the fact that I slather it with butter doesn’t really help! Thanks Mom for the butter addiction! I suppose I could have a worse habit like crystal meth or something. Crystal meth, butter, crystal meth, butter…yep, I will take my butter!
Well anyhow, I have made 2 types of bread so far, the 100% Whole Wheat Sandwich Bread and the Oat Flour Bread. Both were EXTREMELY delicious and healthy. However, I did notice the bread really didn’t rise well. I followed the very well written directions, but the rise on the bread was not as I had liked. So today I went of their website. There is a section listed “Errors”
One of the errors in the book is that all the recipes as written call for 1 1/2 packets of yeast, when it should be TWO packets of yeast!!! In my opinion that is a huge boo-boo on their part.
So if you have the book I suggest you check out the error section of their website..click here.
Errors or no errors I still love the book and will continue to make my own bread!!!
