Next level homemade bread

Worry not, not my doing. I'm not good at baking so I let other people do it

Several countries, probably including yours and definitely including mine, have recently been dealing with flour and yeast shortages and that's hardly unsurprising. Nearly half the global population is currently under some form of government imposed lockdown and that means that whatever else we lack in terms of freedom of movement, we make up for in the one commodity we're usually running out of: time.

For ages, you've been thinking about baking your own bread, baking your own cakes, making your gin, brewing your beer and so and so forth, and now's the time. I don't bake, and I don't cook much because I'm terrible at that but I got friends that do and this is homemade bread that a friend made. She told me she would be baking bread on a daily basis during lockdown and then she shared it on her Instagram and it does look fabulous.

Obviously I couldn't try it because social distancing and stuff but if it tastes even half as good as it looks, we're in for a treat.

I'll be honest, I have an admiration for this sort of thing. Some people seem be naturally born with the craft. They see ingredients and their mind automatically translates the ingredients, via their hands, into a beautifully made moreish dish. I don't have that ability and, if I'm honest, I'm also a bit lazy. And I guess that's why I'm here. I let capable people do the cooking, and I'll do the writing.

  • You inspired me to make a good old fashioned Irish soda bread. I’ll let you know how it turns out.

    • yeah she's talented. And possibly not as lazy as I am. When it comes to the kitchen, the hardest graft I've ever done is opening a bottle of beer

  • I wasn't able to conjure a homemade bread. But I did manage to finish a lot of purchased ones. Oh dear.....
