I love fresh bread, right now… while Josh is building me a new kitchen that’s one of the hardest things to do without… fresh bread! But it’s one of those things that I’m sooo looking forward to being able to make again.
If you’ve never made your very own bread and are considering trying it. Let me, brush away any doubt or nervous thoughts by saying.. “It’s worth it.”
I really can’t do without bread in my diet, I enjoy it to much! But now just about every super market bread has soy in it. If you don’t already know that you should be avoiding soy, visit my brief overview of “Why You Should Avoid Soy Like The Plague” on my recent post about boosting your energy level.
So today I am sharing 2 recipes from Gordon Ramsay for foolproof homemade breads that anybody… even first time bakers can make and not mess up.
Are you ready for that tantalizing smell of warm fresh homemade bread???
ok, let’s get started!
Simple Soda Bread With Gordon Ramsay
350 grams or 1 1/2 cups – Flour
150 grams or 1/2 cup – Wholemeal Flour
1½ teaspoon – Bicarbonate Soda or Baking Soda
1 teaspoon – Salt (Himalayan Salt is best)
1 teaspoon – Caster Sugar (finely granulated sugar)
450 milliliters or just shy of 2 cups – Buttermilk
This second one is alittle bit more advanced, but is still super simple and beginner friendly. So don’t be to shy to try it as well.
