I have been enjoying baking bread. It is such a heartening cold weather activity. It is good for the palate and the soul.
There is nothing like slicing a piece of bread while it’s still warm from the oven and melting a pat of real butter on it. That is all. The yeasty simplicity needs nothing more.
Tomorrow when it’s day old, will be the time to have it toasted and drizzled with honey.
This particular loaf is whole wheat. And there is enough dough in the refrigerator to make a second loaf later in the week. Something to look forward to mid-work week.
