Recipe : Homemade white bread with seeds

Version française

This good old fresh bread just out of the oven for a slow sunday morning…

Making bread takes time… because you need to let your bread rise for one hour twice. But actually, the real preparation time is about 23 minutes : 5 minutes combining the ingredients, 15 minutes kneading, 3 minutes shaping. Then with a good alarm clock reminding you to go check your bread if you’re doing something else, it’s aboslutely not that time consuming if you’re pumped to try.

And if you’re still wondering why making bread is worth the time : Because it’s economical, empowering, it gives the opportunity to know the ingredients you use, to have fresh bread anytime you want, even at 3 o’clock in the morning (…), and kneading is extremely relaxing and very sensual (just so you know…).
