Friday Girl, Snow White, and The Tomten bake bread.
I'm not sure why it took me 3 years (!?) maybe longer, to realize that the bread making method in this book is perfect for the girls learning how to make bread. It really could have been written for kids. I am slapping my forehead, here.
So, last week they made bread all by themselves, mixing the dough, letting it rise and shaping the loafs. Using a no-knead method means just that. They couldn't believe how simple it was. They were so proud and they loved it. This batch was all white flour and with salted butter and jam—it's heaven. They are begging to make it every week, and I say yes!
FYI: I used the full amount for the 3 loaves from the master recipe (it uses 6 1/2 cups flour). I plan to sneak in some white whole wheat flour next time.
