Why making your own bread is AWESOME:
1. Eating it while its still warm from the oven.
2. Taking it to a friends house on the bus and having everyone stare it it longingly.
3. On that note, taking it on the bus and making the bus smell AMAZING.
4. Using the last pieces underneath cowboy eggs. Yum.
I used Michel Roux’s Sandwich Loaf recipe (the one with a couple of spoonfuls of Golden Syrup.) http://www.bbc.co.uk/food/recipes/sandwich_bread_loaf_93879
Oh! And Cowboy Eggs:
Eggs (duh) at least 3, mixed with Fresh Basil, Paprika, Chilli Flakes, Cheese, Salt + Pepper, SCRAMBLED!

I was very kindly given an amazing book, The Roux Brothers on Patisserie, and I decided to make the brioche as my first challenge. There were a few steps to follow, stretched out over 8 hours, but the finished product was very much worth it. This recipe gives an extremely light, yet buttery bread which literally melts on your tongue. I decided to be a little experimental and made a few with chocolate- also delicious, success!
