Baking Out – Bread And Cookies, Check!

Well folks.  Today marks the end of H dog’s last day in Intro to Baking.  We came. I ate.  He conquered.  It’s been 3 weeks of carb nirvana.

Baking Bread - Basics

I have eaten challah bread, brioche bread, yeast dough bread, french bread, whole wheat bread, cracked whole wheat bread, whole wheat bread topped with oats, white bread, cinnamon raisin bread.  I have consumed ungodly amounts of cinnamon sugar cookies, chocolate health bar and almond cookies, pumpkin and black walnut cookies, oatmeal and golden raisin cookies – and new-found favorite – ginger and molasses cookies.  I usually taste test them all for breakfast. 

Raisin Bread, White Bread, Wheat Bread, Oat Bread

Each new sample better than the last and each taste followed with a thumbs up and, “now that’s a good (insert latest baked good name here).”

In the end, I’m here to tell you, the boy can now bake like nobody’s business.  Can’t wait to see what the next 3 weeks will bring.

Until we bake again,

A & H
