IMG_3558More like, ‘Anna, Damn That’s Good’ bread.  Anadama bread.  You know I’m taking this seriously because i actually measured everything out.  Here lately, ALL of my ‘measuring’, including for breads and pizza dough, has been eye-balled.  I want to make this bread to a T.  We are but two skinny jenkins, so after cutting the dough in half, i baked one half and froze the other in a ziploc baggie.

I, for one, really like molasses.  It may be because i have lived in the south for 14 years now, i have relatives who eat it straight on their buckwheat pancakes, or just because i don’t have very refined olfactory senses and like really strong tastes.  So, despite Peter Reinhart’s recommendation to use light molasses, i used Black Strap.  I have used this molasses in several recipes, but mainly oatmeal raisin cookies.

Anadama Bread

This bread took a while to knead.  I used at least the full 10 min that Peter suggests, and maybe a minute more.  I may have miscounted on the molasses?  And found myself continually adding more dough.

Very nice. :) This challenge is so very much fun. I’m thinking of doing the next recipe today.
We only have one slice of the Anadama left. I gained a few pounds but I’m sort of skinny too. LOL.
Have a great week,
Susie
