Ant’s Cottage Loaf – Great British Bake Off Bloggers 2017

Cottage Loaf

I’m not putting the recipe here for the Cottage Loaf because Ant used Paul Hollywood’s recipe. I can’t comment on how it tastes as I don’t eat white bread at the moment. The fact that it’s now all gone, though, seems to suggest that it was lovely!

I have to thank Ella for her help with this blog post. She took the wonderful photos for me because I’ve been so busy this week. I’ve been moving Kaycee’s and Ella’s bedroom around and re-organising. Their room is now looking wonderful but the rest of the house isn’t doing so well! The mess seems to have spread throughout the rest of the house!

Anyway, back to the bread! Ant loves bread week because he makes fresh bread every day for himself and the kids. Ant likes to try different types of bread and new recipes.
He said he could taste the difference with the lard being added in this recipe. He never uses lard in his bread.
