I'm definitely not an expert bread baker yet but we had fun with Bake and Take Day! I first made a batch of zucchini bread and took some to a friend who needed a smile. I had big plans for making my whole wheat bread and taking it to a neighbor while still warm, but it took 4 hours to rise and was ready at 10pm. I'm not sure what happened other than I didn't use fresh ground wheat this time and I'm still a novice. The bread was delicious though. I asked Lucy and Julia who we should take the bread to and they chose our sweet neighbor Katy. She and her husband have a little two year old boy that my girls enjoy playing with. Both my zucchini bread and whole wheat bread recipe make two loaves so they are perfect for sharing. I think we'll be Baking and Taking more often!
I've been using the bread recipe from A Beginners Guide To Baking Bread by Marilyn Moll. Its got lots of helpful tips for getting started with bread baking. I'm excited to try some of the variations like bread sticks, cinnamon bread, herb bread and more. Mmmmm! Two lucky participants will each win a copy of this book. To be considered for this giveaway you need to enter your name and email address here at The Urban Homemaker. While you're there, take a look around at all of the other great products they offer.
