I have had many friend blog their success stories of good food they had made for their families. Well I really bad wanted to join that group my first time baking bread.(with no help) The week before I made mini loafs and rolls but we needed bread so I thought oh heck I will just be a good wife and make it.
Well I followed the recipe to a tee it even told me to put the dough in a loaf pan. I questioned it but I really wanted it to work. So there went all the dough in the pan. Soon I smelt that familiar smell; it reminded me of when my mom would bake bread. I started to think what good things I was going to put on the first hot slice of bread. Would it be butter and Honey or butter and jam or one of each?
I went and checked on the bread and it was almost touching the element on the top of the oven and it looked like it was done just right, and if I let it cook any longer I might have bread stuck on the top of the oven.
I took it out and Kenidee and I enjoyed the first two slices of hot bread. A while later I noticed that my bread looked more like the leaning tower of Pisa. I thought wow it must me heavy on the top, and I cut us another slice of bread, I noticed this slice had a hole in it, as I did more investigating the whole loaf was hollow. I took the knife and cut it in half to find a wad of dough. Yes my gigantic loaf of bread wasn't finished. I did hollow it out and threw it away before I thought of taking pictures. So you just get views of my failing loaf of bread.
I did learn that I will put it in two bread pans next time no matter what the recipe says. :)
