I made bread, people. I MADE BREAD.
The recipe is from Alexandra's Kitchen and she's not kidding when she says it's the easiest bread you will ever make. (Course, this was my first attempt at bread making so I don't really have anything to compare it to. But it was pretty damn easy, so I'm gonna go ahead and take her word for it.) As someone will virtually no bread making experience, I ended up with this delicious looking loaf so, yeah. Easy. Golden crust on the outside, thick yeasty bread on the inside.
Originally for two loafs, I cut the recipe in half, not needing that much bread and, as you can see, it worked out just fine. I got ten servings out of it and they are decent sized slices, at just about 90 calories and 2 Weight Watchers points a slice (I used MyFitnessPal for the information).
I made the loaf Saturday night to go with my spicy roasted butternut squash soup (hello, immersion blender!). Sunday morning I made some oh-so-yummy toast with the bread and Sunday night I made croutons to go in the soup. So many options from one little loaf of bread, I love it.
Truthfully, I don't really eat a lot of bread, but I can guarantee this is going to be made again and often.
Tomorrow is Thanksgiving! Don't forget my tips for having a healthy and happy holiday! I'm also going to be having a sale in my Etsy shop that starts late tomorrow night, meaning you can score Black Friday deals from the comfort of your home. Have a wonderful holiday with your friends and family!
Love from the ashes,
