A while back (yes I'm a procrastinator with a tiny baby who hasn't slept in waaaaay too long= a bad combo) the supercool crew over at Baked Better sent me a few samples of their amazing bread mixes. Basically you just plop the dry mixture plus a pack of yeast (provided) in a bowl along with a liquid of your choice and let it sit for a few in a warm spot then bake away. Done and done.
The other day Avi was at my parents house and Richie and I had the afternoon and evening alone (read: with Bar). We were lying in bed, channel surfing, when I decided it would be the perfect opportunity to bake a loaf of fresh baked bread. Ha! But really no ha! It was totally that simple. The bread was in the oven in no time and I even got a little fancy adding orange and fresh almond mylk and walnuts and a dab of honey (I know some of you vegans don't do honey, but I buy mine from friendly local bee keepers. Promise!). The end result was crispy and warm and sweet-ish and delicious!
I started with the Park Slope Staple which is just an organic whole wheat bread that you can do alone or add whatever it is you desire. I still have the Dumbo Delicious and Cobble Hill Crave to try out.
