The theme for Week 10 of Reddit’s 52 Weeks of Baking Challenge is something inspired by a book, movie, or TV show. The only thing that came to me was Turkish Delights from The Lion, the Witch, and the Wardrobe. I don’t think I want to eat that. I recently finished reading A Game of Thrones and remember a lot of detailed food descriptions. I did some Googling and whatdoyaknow there is an entire A Game of Thrones cookbook! I followed this recipe for crusty, fresh-baked bread. I was a little scared since I’ve never baked real bread before (only quick breads and pizza dough) but the fear was unwarranted: the recipe was easy and the resulting loaves of bread are marvelous!
I used the author’s tip for making the bread crusty. I filled my glass brownie pan with water and placed that on the bottom rack in the oven during baking. It really worked! I didn’t think I would be able to make such deliciously crusty bakery-style bread.
