Cottage Loaf

Jump to recipe

Still binging the Great British Bakeoff show. They made a cottage loaf and it was very intrigued by how terribly things could go wrong, the flavors you could add in and how to make the pieces smoosh together.

I set aside a saturday to give it a go!

Luckily i didn’t have to buy any new tools for this one!

Some of it was confusing, like how much water to add, and when it was done mixing.

I found that it seemed to not rise evenly between the 2 peices ( yes i did weight the whole thing and do math to divide it!)

Even with it looking less than amazing before the oven, we had hope. The outcome was fantastic, it lasted 3 days/meals and was fluffy and delightful.


Amazing bread, not too difficult and serves a crowd!

We will definitely try with lard next time as I think the butter made a difference.

Since we live at Mile High (denver) – i’ll probably proof for a much longer time

If you give this a try let me know what you think and if you added any mixins
