Mmmmm... bread...

The aroma of fresh baked bread might be the best smell in the world. I baked a couple of loaves today and man does my condo smell delicious.

I have been using the master bread recipe from the book "Artisan Bread in Five Minutes a Day" for several years now and it is the easiest recipe ever. No kneading at all and only four ingredients.

This recipe makes enough dough for three or four loaves, and extra dough can be stored in the fridge for a couple of weeks. So typically I make a batch of dough and then I have fresh bread every night for a week.

The bread turned out perfectly with a crisp crust and a chewy interior. And let me tell ya if you are making bread for a dinner or event I recommend making two loaves, that way you have one to snack on when it is fresh and warm out of the oven, and still have a perfect loaf to show off to your guests.

My next adventure will be making brioche from the recipe in this book as well.
