I’m the first to admit I’m not very creative in the kitchen, so when Lucy at Attic 24 posted about the very easy Artisan Bread that she made I thought I might give it a go. She often shares great, easy recipes. Then I saw that Susan at Thimblestitch had successfully made a loaf, so that inspired me to buy some yeast.
Yeast! As soon as I see it mentioned in a recipe, I move on. I’ve tried hot cross buns a couple of times and they weren’t good.
Here it is.
It was OK, very easy, but I kind of rushed everything and didn’t measure all that accurately. I think my mix was probably a little dry. Also, you use a very hot oven, but I think mine was actually too hot. It was definitely edible and good with lots of butter. I will certainly have another go, but when it is soup weather, not in the middle of a heat wave.
