There are a few things in this world that I consider myself quite good at. For instance, I make the worlds greatest bolognese. To me, it’s one of the best tasting things ever. When cooking this I dance around in my kitchen singing R-Kellys “Worlds Greatest” at the top of my lungs. I love my bolognese. LoveLoveLove it!
But… I digress…
One thing I have never been able to succeed at is baking bread.
And it kills me, because…
My name is Malin, and I’m a bread-oholic.
I could eat bread for days on end if people didn’t stop me. I love whole grain, crisp bread, baguettes, sour-dough… mmm…. bread… Any kind.
So once in awhile I browse the internet and find all these amazing pictures of gorgeous, crispy, soft home-made bread. And I think “Today is the day!”
I find a recipe, carefully read it and meticulously follow the instructions…
Only to find out, today was not the day.
Yesterday… I thought, “Surely, this must be my day?”
Yeah… ish. It was kind of my day. But as you can see, it doesn’t have that deliciously soft and chewy interior and crispy, but still somehow soft, exterior.
It’s fine, but I would not buy this if I came across it in a shop. And for me, anything short of that is never going to be good enough. Call me picky, but bread is important.
But this is nevertheless the best attempt ever! So I’m excited.
Now, blog friends… This is where you come in.
I have a lot of goals for 2013, and making the perfect loaf of bread is on top of that list. So, if anyone out there knows what I’m doing wrong, I’m begging you to let me know!
