Tea & Toast. Toast & Tea. Quiet early mornings in a breakfast nook, before the day begins. And speaking of beginnings, today's Tuesday with Dorie post highlights a new Dorie Greenspan baking adventure: Baking with Julia. I along with hundreds of Doristas are baking our way through this culinary-challenging book, with courage, conviction and gusto. Just like Julia would.
The inaugural Baking with Julia recipe, "white bread" is from Craig Kominak, contributing baker. Made with the simplest of ingredients (bread flour, water, yeast, butter & salt), this bread was quite simple to prepare (although, don't ask my Kitchen Aid, it's still in recovery). I halved this recipe and made two small loaves. One loaf for the traditionalist and one for the renegade (who loves cinnamon sugar swirls). Both were highly-rated at my breakfast nook.
Thank you Laurie and Julie for keeping Tuesdays with Dorie going strong. Your hard work is greatly appreciated. For the recipe to make this delightful bread, visit Julie's blog, Someone's in the Kitchen.
