Irish No Knead Bread
Recently, I have had problems with my computer being too full of photos so I thought I might try and delete more as I went. In my enthusiasm, I have deleted a lovely photo of this bread from the weekend. Argh! I really am not good at deleting photos.
no-knead bread. I got the measurements wrong and then forgot about the timer. In my defence, I also made lots of obscure notes about nappies, baking florentines, and a disagreement over a crochet rug. Yet my misgivings were unfounded. The bread was brilliant and every bit as burnt-looking at Jim Lahey's. I wish I had a picture to show you.
I am sending this to Susan for her weekly YeastSpotting event.
