One thing I’ve noticed since moving home is that the bread here in the US sucks. For those of you that know me personally, you’ll know that I’ve never met a carb I didn’t like. Screw like…there’s not a carb out there that I would move heaven and earth to inhale…I love carbs! I mean, just ask my ass! I’ve been keeping around the same load of carbs since high school…they love me back so much that I can’t get rid of them!
So, due to that…I will admit I have become a bit more “discriminating” with the carbs I choose to inhale at a rapid pace. I don’t just whore myself out for anything anymore…it had better be GOOD! Which is what is so disappointing, because honestly, the best carb of all (bread) is shit here.
But…I no longer have to despair!! Because I found a really kick-ass bread recipe that is SUPER easy to make! Don’t be scared of bread, people…I know yeast is a bit of a tricky mother, but it’s really not as bad as it sounds! I used to be scared as shit of making bread. The proofing the yeast, the rising, the kneading, the MORE rising…and then…will it actually bake right?! Oy…too much stress…just run to the local grocery and get yourself a loaf already made! Except, as we’ve already established, that stuff is junk.
So…I’m here to do you a solid! Bread can be made on your own…IT CAN BE DONE! All you need is water, yeast, sugar, salt, and flour…simple! I used this recipe here, and it was incredible! Super easy to make, did exactly like it was supposed to do, and tastes great! I would really encourage you all to get out there and try your hand at making bread at home…no preservatives, healthier than store-bought, and you can control your ingredients! Next time I’m going to make it using the King Arthur White Whole Wheat flour that I’ve bought, just to see how it works.
And now…some photos! A before and after, if you will.
