BBA Challenge – Anadama

The Bread Baker’s Apprentice Challenge was initiated by Nicole from pinchmysalt.com.  The goal is to bake every bread from the Bread Baker’s Apprentice by Peter Reinhart.  I’ve always enjoyed baking and I love a good challenge, so i’m jumping into this with both feet.  Much to my husband’s chagrin, that means buying every gadget/spice/flour that is mentioned in the book and has already resulted in a multi-store quest at 11pm on a Friday night attempting to track down the exact loaf pans I needed for the first bread, Anadama.

The formula (as it is called in BBA) produces either 2 larger loaves or 3 smaller loaves.  I opted for 3 smaller loaves for easier sharing with family and friends.

 

UPDATE:  After reading about anadama I realized that I failed miserably the first time around.  While it tasted good, it just wasn’t the bread it was supposed to be – Soft, light & good for sandwiches.  So I gave it another shot, and it became all it was supposed to be.  Photos coming soon.
