Your favorite bread to bake?
What is your current or all-time favorite loaf to bake? I just happen to be on a brioche kick right now since I took a class last month. I have been trying to achieve ultimate "Brioche-ocity" for the last several years and I thought I had it knocked with the French CIA book my hubby got me for Christmas, until I took this class. I'm lucky to live close to a premier bakery/deli that has all kinds of baking classes. I know depending on many mitigating factors, it may not always come out with the same results, but today was kismet. Hubby is still smiling; he's a little carboholic
Challah and French have always been my favorites, because I've made them so many times, they normally turn out well for me. They are dependable standards at our house. Also,I love to bake a nice hearty whole grain loaf and throw in whatever grains, seeds, nuts, etc. I happen to have around.
Do you have a particular type of bread you enjoy making? Is it from a newer cookbook or a family heirloom recipe? Yeast or quick bread?
