{our daily bread}

A Monday meme. Handmade with love, kneaded with strength, baked from the heat of the Earth. A part of each day. Every week I will post a photo of one our doughy creations. From seven-grain loaves to tortillas to hot cross buns to chapati to french bread sticks. If you’re inspired to post a photo of your homemade bread and recipes just leave a comment and link below for everyone to awe and marvel at. You’re also welcome to use the sidebar button if you’d like to.
Artisan Loaves

I originally used the artisan bread in 5 minutes recipes when I began making these loaves, however now I just use my own dough recipe and then shape them into circular loaves, slash the tops and add seeds if I feel so inclined. Yesterday I baked two wholewheat/spelt loaves, one plain and one topped with caraway seeds. We'll use the plain one for toast in the mornings and the seeded one for crusty sandwich bread during the week.

Oh, that looks so yummy! About how big do you make each loaf?

Not exactly a bread, but how about Spinach Egg Noodles?

That looks delicious!
We have a few colds floating around our household, I made your homemade cough syrup (Manuka Honey & Apple cider Vinegar), do you take the whole lot in one go or do you take a meausure? I have been giving them about 13mls.

they look great - I just ordered the artisan bread in 5 mintues book on amazon and the nutritious bread book also, are they good? I'm excited!

Steph said...

They look soooo good! Am going to give your bread recipe a whirl this week. How do you store it to keep it fresh? In a cloth or in the fridge? Hope all is wonderful with you :)

@Steph,

We have a glass cake container on the kitchen bench that I store it in but I think you could use mesh, or just an old plastic/paper bag from an eaten loaf of bread. The fridge might make it too cold, unless you are only using it for toast and then that'd be fine. xo m.
