Ezekiel Bread..... ooops!

I'm a big dumb twat!! I turned the oven nob too far and ended up cooking my bread in the grill for 40 minutes!
Still turned out ok though, little bit to stodgy in the centre and burnt on top, but looks and tastes like bread!
I think I made the mixture too wet though, but it's hardly my fault since the instructions say 19 tablespoons of water and my spoons are obviously not the same size as theirs! I can understand putting the quantity in spoons when it's only a few, but 19?? Could the not have used ml? Anyhoo, my first ever bread so not bad at all!


After kneading - hated doing this as I get really freaked out when I have sticky stuff on my hands, think this will be a job for my boyfriend in future! The pack came with a cardboard baking "tin" wish I'd read all the instructions before I went out and bought a real one!



After being left to rise for an hour



Grilled and burnt!



Couple of slices! Tastes really nice but not as different as I was expecting, it's just like a nice seeded loaf really! If it was cheaper I'd get it again but it's so much more expensive than normal bread making mixes and if I'm going to make bread fairly regularly I'd be cheaper just buying the separate ingredients and making a good wholemeal loaf that will be just as tasty. I'm pleased it worked out, I was worried it'd totally mess it up and my heart sank when I went back into the kitchen and saw the cooker was set to grill!

  1. Yay for homemade bread! I only make bread now and then because I love it so much if that makes sense ;)

    Just had some with a mashed up banana - was very nice! The bread has a lot of flavour and is just the right level of moistness with a nice crunch to the crust, grilling is the way forward!

  4. Where did you get the mix? I've never seen any Ezekiel products over this side of the Atlantic, and so many of the bloggers I read eat it and love it... I'd love to try some!
    I'm another one who rarely risks baking bread because home-baked bread is just so much better than the shop stuff - I could eat it until I explode!

    I noticed Sainsburys sell Doves Farm bread mixes so maybe worth checking there too - my local only stocks regular bread ones.
