If you've been following along for a while, you may remember that way back in the dark ages of this blog, I did a Homemade Challenge. I had just started the blog, was starting to grow an interest in cooking and making food from scratch at home and I wanted to challenge myself to make something entirely from scratch, once a week that I would normally buy from the supermarket.
So many awesome recipes came out of that year, and so many that I still use all the time now. Burrito Spice Mix, Chicken Stock, Vanilla Ice-Cream, Vanilla Extract and more. I even have an ebook with 14 of my favourite recipes that I send when you sign up for my email list!
I've been thinking for a while about another similar type of challenge I could take on, I asked on my Instagram and in my Facebook group and the answer was clear...you guys want to know how to bake bread! This makes me SO happy, as bread baking is something I've recently started getting really into and is an area that I would love to learn more about.
So here's the plan:
- At the beginning of each month I will post a new recipe for a different type of bread. We will start slowly, and work out way up to more complicated recipes. Each recipe post will be accompanied by step by step photos and instructions, tips and tricks and a video showing you exactly how to do it. I want you to succeed!
- I want you to bake the same recipe that month and share it with me! Comment on the post letting me know how you got on, email me, or share a picture on Instagram (and if you do, tag it #thekiwicountrygirl)
That's it! Super simple, homemade bread making fun! Sound good?
If you have any questions about the recipe, make sure you ask - the goal here is to get everyone making bread at home! Because there is nothing better than the smell of freshly baked bread.
And if you have suggestions for breads that you think would be a good one to feature for the month, let me know.
The challenge kicks off tomorrow, so check back for the recipe - it's as basic and as simple as they come. A 4 ingredient, no-knead loaf of white bread. You are going to LOVE it!
