MG: i made bread!

my first loaf of bread--real, bona fide, cake yeast, slow-rise, hand-kneaded loaf of bread. a whole wheat milk loaf based on a shokupan recipe in a Japanese magazine. the flavor worked out a bit bland and needs tweaking, but the texture is surprisingly nice. light, soft, and supple. feeling all chuffed and can't stop thinking "i made this!?"

smeared with butter & gooseberry jam


  1. That looks very delicious!

  2. Yum! I am making homemade pizza & pretzels and you're making bread-- have we all gotten hit with some sort of "must make things containing yeast" subliminal message?

  3. where the recipe from :) yum!!

  4. i like the puffiness of the bread. makes me want to take a bite out of it
