For fun this year, in addition to continuing to run every day, I am going to bake my way through The Bread Baker’s Apprentice. It was nice having something to focus my attention on over the course of the year. A bonus? I learned a lot.
I already use this book regularly for some things (cinnamon buns & pizza dough), and I have baked a random assortment of things out of it, but I also have avoided some of the recipes out of fear. Not this year; I will only be skipping recipes I have regularly made since I know I can do them with ease.
There are ~30 recipes in the book, so my aim is to bake something every other weekend, once I take out the ones I am allowed skip.
As I write this I have the first recipe, Anadama bread, on its second rise – it looks delicious – I’ll write more about that soon.
