On a day when I hardly saw my back garden let alone Mount Warning, due to this mist and low cloud, I spent most of the day working on a university assignment, which is due this Wednesday.
During constant reading of any description, I find I need to take regular breaks, usually in the garden. What to do when it’s raining heavily outside? I baked a loaf of bread instead.
It’s been many years since I baked a loaf of bread, although I always bake a batch of hot cross buns every Easter. This year, I baked two batches, and they turned out so well I was inspired to try bread baking again.
I started simple, just a plain white loaf, and the result was a beautifully crispy golden crust and soft white bread inside.
It was a pretty good way to spend the final day of the Easter long weekend, here in the damp subtropics.

Before I moved, I was making bread quite often, but have gotten away from that recently. I did make some bagels yesterday. Your bread looks wonderful.

Thanks, Carol. 😊
It surprised me how little time it actually took to make the bread. I read during the rising time and took short breaks to prepare the loaf for the next stage. Bagels sound good! I might try making them when I have a bit more time.
Your bread looks perfect– Bet it smelled wonderful, best fragrance ever! And we get a glimpse of your new kitchen – looks beautiful! 🙂
