Sunday afternoon seems to be turning into my bread baking time. Made a delicious, buttery Farl yesterday (shown above) and half of the loaf is already gone. Recipe for this traditional English round bread is here. [NOTE: Farl (from the Scots, fardel) generally refers to a round loaf or a round loaf cut into four triangles, frequently one made using baking soda (see Irish Soda Bread)].


Pain de Campagne

Took some time off yesterday afternoon (Presidents Day) and made a delicious loaf of French country bread, i.e "pain de campagne". Slight taste of rye, lovely aroma of oregano. Great crumb, incredible flavor, and a light crackling crust. Really a fantastic loaf of bread. Go here for the recipe. [NOTE: Recipe is in new Downloads section that I added yesterday (while waiting for the bread to rise) to share things like this].
