One way to turn an ordinary loaf of bread into something special is to be creative with its appearance. Cupcakes may rule the roost when it comes to food porn, but bread can be made to look equally as enchanting. Sprinkle a few sprinkle a few seeds on top, add a glaze, or mould the dough into an interesting shape - voila, ordinary is turned to spectacular. For my latest loaf I experimented with making a plaited loaf, and just to give it that extra oomph, enriched it with eggs, margarine, and milk.
It cuts into lovely small slices, perfect for dipping in soup or stew. Based on the brands I used, each slice is about 70 calories. Here are some of my bread making tips.
