Of all the weeks I think I’d ace in the Great British Bake Off, bread week is not one of them. I’m a baker of cakes and even though a loaf don’t seem too different to a gateaux, I am a horrific baker of bread! Let’s all take this post as a light hearted read… Something to entertain ourselves over our lunch break during a busy day in the office, a bit of light relief from a tough day of studying, a post where you’ll be laughing with me and hopefully not at me!
This week I decided to attempt to rival Paul’s bread Lion Face from the third instalment in the bake off tent. His piece looked so #totesamazeballs I thought I could defo put together something up to that standard. I chose to use soda bread in 3 different flavours to create a cute bow shape,since I am Row Bow, y’know!
After scrolling though the internet and flicking through many a cook book, I decided it would be easiest to make one super batch of soda bread and split it into 3 types. I used 500g plain flour, 500g wholemeal flour, a little salt, 1 tsp bicarb, 3 cups milk and 3 tsp cream of tartar. But there’s no point me telling you this because it TOTALLY DID NOT work.
The first part was a plain soda bread. This became the knot of my bow.
