White Bread

More savory baking! These cute little loafs of white bread are "basic" but very delicious. The bread was much denser than your standard bagged loafs but not chewy or dry. The bread was best when it was still warm and fresh out of the oven, but it was also great the next day as french toast (post coming soon!) and as sandwich bread.

I used the recipe that came in my KitchenAid booklet (also found here,) which was easy to follow. I probably should have made this bread first instead of starting with French bread last year since it was simpler. 

Easy to slice

Ready to eat!

Flour Tortillas

I've helped my grandmother make flour tortillas before, but I had never made them by myself. Below are pictures from my first attempt to make them from scratch on the comal I received as a Christmas present.   

This recipe seemed reasonably close to my grandmother's (which isn't measured). More importantly, the picture  LOOKED right.

Store-bought or restaurant flour tortillas are often pale imitators of their homemade counterparts. Real flour tortillas should have dark char marks where they came in contact with the cooking surface.

The prettiest one!

It's Like Cup-a-Soup but with Pictures!

I'm trying to keep this blog relatively up to date, but if you want more frequent updates on my baking and other adventures, please check out my Instagram feed. I've added a badge under the "About Me" section on the right. It's really easy to find me though since it's also called Deitri.
