Pain a l'Ancienne: Bread of the Week 25

This week I made Pain a l'Ancienne. I can't pronounce it, but I love it. This is the first hearth bread that browned beautifully for me. The crumb was perfect. This bread made me feel like a real baker. I will defiantly be making it again.

One of the problems I've had since I started breaking bread is that my weight has plateaued instead of going down. I've started another blog chronicling my weight loss quest. If you've ever struggled to lose weight please check it out and give me advice. The blog can be found at

Beautiful bread! Plateau? Here's a tip: give half of your baked goodies away...your friends and your waistline will love you!

The bread looks amazing! This is actually the first recipe I baked from the book, mostly because I was intrigued by the cold rise- which I'd never done before.

And yes, give bread away. It's the only way.
