Man oh man, am I a procrastinator. After nearly a month I still haven't quite figured out the best schedule for me to keep up with the TWD baking. But! I made it this time, although just barely. Luckily, this bread is a total cinch to put together.
I was a little dubious about a recipe with so few ingredients, but was surprised at the rise on this bread as it went from a flat disk of lumpy dough, to a puffed up golden loaf of yumminess.
The bread was surprisingly moist and had a nice chewy texture, which was pretty surprising as buttermilk is the only fat in this recipe. I expected it to be more scone like, maybe even a little dry, but it was delicious.
The original recipe is pretty basic, I've seen other add mix-ins like cheese, or dried fruit. I think there are a lot of varieties you could have with this bread. Next time, I think I'll add some Parmesan, garlic and green onions.
This week's recipe is hosted by Carla at Chocolate Moosey and Cathleen of My Culinary Mission.
