OK, bread experiment no.2 - this time a little more traditional, with proper kneading and such. I followed Delia's online recipe - which was really easy.
To be honest, I had more fun doing this than the no-knead bread. The kneading process (only three and two minutes) was like PlayDoh fun. This bread turned out just as well - crisp crust with soft fluffy insides. Less chewy and more dense (the air bubbles are smaller). It tasted delicious on its own, and even more so with a dab of butter.
