When I first started blogging, I made this bread. I aimed to make a copycat loaf like the Baker’s Delight one we regularly buy. It still amazes me that this loaf works so well and is so easy and delicious.
If you’re new to making bread, then this loaf is the perfect place to start! I’ve updated the original photos to make it fresh for you and I hope you get a chance to give this loaf a go. The kids love it, it’s great as toast and so easy to make!
This is a post from 2015. So here is the original text:
Well, I make my own sourdough. It feels like a confession….and it kind of is. It means I have found the time to make and cultivate a sourdough starter for months on end and that I have the time to make sourdough at home.
And most days I could make sourdough at home. But then there are lunches for preschool and the sudden urge for bread that only occurs when it is needed…NOW! Now…well…its not something that exists in the world of sourdough. It takes upwards of 24 hours to make sourdough.
So what to do for bread that needs to be made now? I’ve bought the chia loaf from Baker’s Delight before and the kids like it. Actually they love it. I love the crunch of the seeds and the fact that it does have some additional goodness in it.
You don’t need a bread machine to make this loaf, in fact I can’t think of any bread that would be better made in a bread machine than by hand or in a mixer.
