Another week in the joy and joyness of bread baker’s apprentice. Truthfully if I did not commit to do every recipe in the book I would have skipped this one. I like cranberries and I like walnuts but ehh the bread just sounded ehh…boring. Now the english muffins, focaccia, pizza dough, and baguettes those definitely make me want to do a happy dance.
This bread was pretty straightforward and thankfully only took a couple hours to make. The tricky part was the braiding. In the book it said you will have three ten ounces pieces and three four ounces pieces that are braided and then combined. I ended with three pieces that were ten ounces each. I probably screwed up somewhere but since I was not really interested in this bread it was easy to take the three pieces braid them, egg wash them, and not care.

Couple people have e-mailed or made comments about wanting to see pictures of the garden. I keep forgetting I post pictures often to my facebook and sometimes to Twitter but will try to get better about sharing some garden porn pics to the blog.
