crusty, fresh-baked bread

March 7, 2012 by Angie

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.
