i baked this bread in the weekend. i do that quite often, because, well, it's the best bread ever. so simple, so good. it's baked in an iron cast pot, which makes the crust to die for. this time around i used 2/3 wheat flour and 1/3 whole wheat flour. i added some quinoa and oats as well as dried dates.
just out of the oven it is so hot you can hear the crust cracking as it adjusts to the cold. you can even see it changing a tiny bit in the structure. i love to watch and listen. this particular morning it was extra pretty, as the early morning sun was shining through the window. the kids were still snuggling up in bed with D, leaving me alone in the quiet kitchen with a cup of coffee in my hand. standing there, surrounded by golden morning light and the scent of freshly baked bread mixing with the smell of my coffee, i felt content.
