Turtle Loaf

I have just baked my first loaf of bread from the Master Dough recipe from Artisan Bread in Five Minutes a Day, by Jeff Hertzberg and Zoe Francois.

It looks like a turtle.

It has only been the first day of the dough sitting in the fridge so it was a bit dense and the crust was quite crunchy, but the taste was very good. I can't wait for the dough to sit in the fridge for a few days and see how it comes out. The kid and hubby really liked it too.

I haven't gotten the book yet, but I found the Master Dough recipe on the web and tried it. I can't wait to get my book and try all of the other recipes. I can see more home baked bread in my future. Can't wait to try the cinnamon buns - mmmmmmmmmm.
