In a rush? You can skip to the Easy Cottage Bread Recipe at my Tumblr or you can jump to my Just the Basics section.

When I first started baking, I tried a lot of different recipes. And I failed at a lot of them. My loaves came out lumpy and misshapen. Some of my bread collapsed in the oven or burnt to a crisp.

With more practice, I managed to make a few loaves that looked a little bit more like bread, but they didn’t taste half as good as they looked. They were too bland or too salty or too sweet. I felt a bit like Goldilocks trying the different beds – one recipe was too big, another recipe was too hard, etc.

And then I stumbled across this easy cottage bread recipe, and it was just right.
