So I am one of the many who faithfully follow AB5's website and was excited by the invitation to join a Bread Braid (thank you for all your hard work, Michelle). Our challenge it to bake our way through the newest book, "Healthy Bread in Five Minutes a Day". I was lucky enough to get my copy on the same day it was released!
The bread baking challenge doesn't officially start until January, but we are getting a preview with a couple of special recipes from Jeff & Zoe. November's challenge: Pumpkin Pie Brioche.
I mixed the dough on Sunday night, but first started by baking a pie pumpkin. I am lucky enough to have joined a CSA program this year and we just happened to get a beautiful sugar (pie) pumpkin a couple of weeks ago. The dough didn't get mixed until after dinner that night, so I baked it Monday morning.
We cut into it Monday after I got home from work. Wow, we were all impressed. Our 2 yr old (who loves all my AB5 breads) took a piece, looked at it for a moment then licked it. Then he gobbled it up!
I will probably bake the other loaf today and give it to a friend, along with a bag of the granola from the AB5 book.
Take care and thanks for reading my first blog entry w/photos! I won't tell you how long it took me to finish :)
