Or, if I was being completely honest, cheating! Buoyed with my earlier success with bread baking, Daddy Bear is keen for me to experiment with baking different types of bread. However, I was much less confident, so opted for for easy life and bought a pre-mixed James Martin packet. The instructions were really clear and timings worked perfectly, so I can thoroughly recommend it to any one who is tentatively exploring bread baking like myself. It definitely would have thrown me to have such a wet sticky bread dough to kneed had the packet not warned me in advance!
This was a Garlic and Rosemary Foccaccia, and the Bears ate it for a Saturday lunch with pan fried asparagus spears wrapped in smoked pancetta. It was delicious!
