Ephipany

Yesterday, the kids woke up to some golden chocolate coins left by the Wise Men and during our morning circle time, we sang We Three Kings, of course. I was inspired by this post of Karen Edmisten's to try making King's Bread. I didn't use her recipe, as good as it looked. Instead, I used the recipe for Panetonne from Artisan Bread in Five Minutes a Day, except that I braided it together and twisted it into a crown shape. When it was baked and cooled, I made a simple glaze of orange juice, lemon extract and powdered sugar and slathered the bread in it.

Needless to say, it was well received.

What a great way to celebrate the Epiphany! We will have to do something like that next year. I always want to do something but have never succeeded. Maybe next year.

The picture is totally making me hungry. Breadmaking isn't something that I have ventured into doing yet besides banana bread and beer bread.

I highly recommend the cookbook I mentioned for getting into bread baking. I've always been yeast-o-phobic, but have had very good success with their recipes.

Yum!

I have enjoyed re-discovering homemade bread since we got our oven. Our broiler pan seems to have gone to the dump with the old stove, but I haven't really noticed a difference. Wonderful yummy fresh bread!!

I used to be yeast-o-phobic too, but my desire to shovel bread into my mouth helped me to overcome my fears. I engage in such therapy regularly. :)

Your Epiphany bread looks great!
