The loaf

La loaf recipe

The homemade bread we love at home, we test all the recipes in my book, it is exceptional in quality and explanations. Nice slices of fresh bread, of course at the beginning we would tend to eat a little more, because it is so good. Its colors and its smell cannot leave anyone indifferent, its slightly crispy crust will crack under your teeth, leaving you with great happiness. The loaf is surely one of the easiest loaves to make, no need for professional technique, just to check that your preparation is not too fluid, it must be held well in order to inflate in height.
