First Try at Bread Baking

First try at the idea of what I would do when I retired. A bit late but not too bad

This was “Italian Bread” from an old cookbook to which I added a bit of olive oil, thus, according to the book, making it french bread. It was pretty good, though I didn’t roll the loaf together tightly enough. I hope I didn’t burn out the mixer by kneading it with the dough hook.
Next time I will try a whole grain bread adapted from a recipe used by Marilee that we used to use to make bread for back packing. Any recipe suggestions welcome.

    This week I tried a seeded Jewish rye to go with home-made pastrami. I made one from a recipe that created a sandwich bread. Not what I wanted; too soft. Will try again when I find a better recipe for a more deli-type bread.
