Picture of the Week: Baking Bread


I’ve recently been serving only homemade bread instead of store-bought, and since it wasn’t hot yesterday, I made it bread baking day. I use this recipe from “the mrs” – I tried a few and this one is by far our favorite. I make a few modifications, though. Her recipe calls for honey, and since babies can’t have honey for their first year, I substitute agave nectar so Small Fry can enjoy it. I only own 2 loaf pans, so I cut the recipe in half. And I don’t have a stand mixer, so I do it all by hand. Oh, and she grinds her own flour; I don’t have the ability to do that, so I use half all purpose (I buy it in 25 pound bags) and half whole wheat. Considering all my modifications, I’m sure hers is much better! lol. But it’s still amazing bread.

Anyway, so the picture. When it was time for the kneading process, Munchkin wanted to help. So of course I let him :).

Happy First Day of Summer!

    You should definitely claim the recipe! You’ve made some cool changes. That’s really interesting about the honey. I’ve only ever worried about raw honey for my babes! You are obviously a much more with it mom!

      Check with your pediatrician about “regular” honey when Tigerlily gets old enough, just to be safe. Even the commercial stuff says “do not feed to children under 1 year.” I suppose it’s possible that’s a regional thing, though; your honey might not have the same risk factors because of the nectar the bees gather or something… Anyway, thanks for the comment! And the “approval” for modifying your recipe :).
