So I watched the Food Network on a regular basis, and one of my favorite shows on there is Barefoot Contessa. And one of the things I’ve always wanted to try to make was home-made bread. I’ve attempted before on my own and failed miserably many times… it got to a point where I would give up baking bread altogether. That is until I saw an episode on how to make Irish soda bread where immediately, I was hooked.
So after a few weeks have gone, and I finally have time to cook at home, I decided to give baking bread one more try… and the end result was quite favorable. Except for the fact that I substituted the real butter with that I can’t believe its not butter crap, no buttermilk (replaced it with 2% milk and some white vinegar), and instead of using all white flour, I did half and half with whole wheat. Despite all the substitutions… it turned out quite well.
Here’s the pic to prove it 🙂
