White Loaves - Tuesdays with Dorie - Baking with Julia
White Bread - Baking with Julia

Whoo Hoo!
It's Tuesday.
And we're back! It's the first week of Tuesdays with Dorie: Baking with Julia edition.

White Loaves - Tuesdays with Dorie - Baking with Julia
For the past few years, a group of bloggers baked our way through the awesome Dorie Greenspan cookbook: Baking from My Home to Yours. When that finished (4 years later), we all wanted to continue baking! So we embark on baking twice a month from the classic book Baking with Julia - combining two treasures: Julia Child and Dorie Greenspan!

For this week's Tuesdays with Dorie: Baking with Julia, the organizers Laurie and Jules are hosting our inaugural baking extravaganza!

Whenever I make bread, I wonder why I don't make bread more often! I love the chemistry of it all...all those little yeast molecules coming back to life.

I made 1/2 the recipe for one loaf. I raced home after work, kneaded the dough, and let it rise while I went to pilates. Then I punched it down and let it go for a second rise while I shopped at Costco. It was a multi-tasking night!

Thanks to my friend Shannon, I was able to put lovely homemade Apple Preserves on the bread. Thanks Shannon for this treat!

One of my favorite things about baking bread is the many ways it can be worked into "life's scheduling".
Your loaf looks great - glad to be joining in on this round of TWD.

Looks lovely! Very organised with your rising - you're a real multi-tasker.

Your bread looks beautiful! I agree, maybe this will kick start me into baking bread more often.

I feel the same way when I bake bread. Of course, I never follow through and actually bake more. But again...I really should. Anyway, looks delicious!!

What a lovely bread. Perfect looking! I really enjoyed this bread and decided to make one with a cinnamon swirl!

Yay!! So glad to see you back for round 2. You were one busy woman the day you were baking this delicious bread. I bet the apple preserves was perfect on this. :)

This was a great recipe to start off with, I think! It looks like it turned out terrific for you, even with all the multi-tasking.
