*** instabread ***

As my days, so is my blog: bread after bread after bread. It is pretty apparent that I like baking bread. I'd love to get back to doing some cakes and cupcakes- unfortunately all my baking attire is STILL in Glasgow, so for the time being majority of my time is spent on breadbaking.

After the acquisition of a smartphone not too long ago, the wonders of instagram have been made apparent to me and I too now have the instabug.  If you so desire, follow me (username maxine_scarf). You will probably be flooded by images of bread such as these ones:

Yummy!  I usually am far too stagnant to put up the recipes, this time though, here it is. Enjoy munching.


*** to infinity and baguette ***

Since writing the last post, I baked that baguette. It is looking pretty good for a first.

*** endless bread ***

I'm very much in a bread-baking phase, I cannot stop making bread. In the last month or so I must have baked a minimum of 7 loaves of bread- that isn't a huge amount in quantity, but when you compare it to the usual zero loaves per month it seems like quite a lot. As we speak I have another loaf rising on the windowsill (baguette attempt no. 1)...

I uploaded a very spectacular image of a bread I baked a while ago on facebook and was meet with a shameful amount of scepticism from a very particular friend of mine (you know who you are..!), commenting "Lovely store bought produce placed on a baking tray to create the illusion of baking. You're a sly one".  To which I am cheesily retaliating with this post.

[500g white bread flour, 2 sachets yeast, milk, water, sugar and olive oil- and hey presto- you have bread]
