Better bread?

One thing we’ve never quite got used to in America is the lack of good bread; it’s hard to find in supermarkets, there’s no good bakeries nearby …

Watching episodes of The Great British Bake Off, I’ve been tempted to try making my own bread and after recently finding a seeming easier recipe online, I decided today to give it a try. We bought a baking stone along with yeast, and followed the instructions.

The results are reasonably good – very crispy due to a a pan of water in the bottom of the oven. Maybe not cooked right through at the bottom but acceptable for a first try (not sure if I’ll try again – the kitchen is a bit of a mess now!)
