Taste Tuesday: Country Seed Bread

  Good Morning!

I really did have a Last Week’s Loves post mostly written but then yesterday got the best of me and I didn’t get it finalized and posted…so maybe next week I’ll do a Last Two Week’s Loves post!  But for now, back to Taste Tuesday. My biggest weakness, more than salty snacks or chocolate, is bread. I LOVE CARBS.  And not the good kind.  The baskets of delicious white bread that come on the table before you eat at a restaurant, fresh white rolls, thick pizza dough, really bad for you kind. Needless to say I’ve been making an effort to cut down on my bread consumption.  But when I do have bread in the house, I try to make my own instead of buying it.  Since it’s time consuming to make bread I figure I’m less likely to make it very often. It has been awhile since I’ve had bread in the house so I decided to make some this weekend.  This recipe for Country Seed Bread from my ever reliable Complete Canadian Living Cookbook is great.  It’s got some whole wheat and good for you seeds like flax and sesame…it almost feels like I should be able to eat it for every meal. (SEE? It’s a slippery slope….) But regardless, it’s delicious and relatively simple as far as making bread goes.  I made the recipe last week and here is the recipe in pictures.

And VOILA you have homemade bread!

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA Not so hard, right?  It is a time commitment, but not actually ‘making’ it, that takes no time.  Most of the time consists of waiting for the bread to rise and the baking time.  You just need to be around your house for a few hours and work it in between doing other things.

Have you ever made homemade bread!

XO,

  1. That looks delicious and I love that the recipe is easy to follow! Thanks for sharing!

  2. I’ve made a few loaves and then I slice it up and freeze it in three or four slice bundles so that I have breakfast for the week. You have about as much counter space as I do. What do you do for a floured surface?? That’s the main reason I don’t bake bread every week. I have to relocate my stand mixer and toaster oven to other rooms to create enough space!

      I knead on my table. I won’t be with my new one though. I have a bit more counter space I think. I def wouldn’t have to move appliances!

  3. That looks so good! I don’t think I have ever made bread from scratch. Does banana bread count? :)

  4. Oh wow, this bread looks so delicious…I bet it smelled amazing while it was baking! I love carbs too!

  5. Your bread looks fabulous and your recipe with the images makes it so doable to make. Shared on FB, PInterest and Google+!
