Halbe’s first bread-making experience

Posted: August 12th, 2010 | Author: | Filed under: Italy, Meals, Umbria | 6 Comments »

Halbe's first foray into bread making - and it's vegan!

Okay, I’ll admit it, I’ve always been a little jealous of Devon’s ability to make bread. While in Umbria our host, Michael, asked us to make a loaf. Usually Devon would do this, but he’s baked at least 10 loaves on this trip for our different hosts and was a little baked out. I gave it a whirl. This is the result of my efforts and I’m quite pleased. It’s made with white and wheat flour, vegetable oil, soy milk and molasses (our host was a vegan). You can see the soy margarine in the corner of the picture that was smothered on each piece.

Everyone liked it so much it was gone within a few days and our host brought half a loaf to his girlfriend’s to share. Even though she’s not a “bread eater,” she really enjoyed my bread. I have to say, I’m proud of myself! Now we have two bread makers in our family. Devon still has a hold on the pizza making market though. And we’ll keep it that way because he’s certainly got talent.

    Hooray Halbe! That looks delish. It sounds like a quickbread – I love those! I’m hoping I can easily find soy margarine when I get to France.

    Oh boy. Now we’ll all be lining up waiting for your bread. I once knew how to make soda bread. It was pretty heavy and not very good, but, hey, it was bread.

    That looks sooooo much better than my first bread making experience, and that was out of a breadmaker!

    and I also believe vegan bread is not easy to make, something about how the ingredients mix isn’t quite the same. that looks delicious!
