My first loaf.

Just joined the site and completed the first lesson today making a tin loaf. After trying other recipes from various sources I must say this is the best. It looks good and by golly it tastes good. However I would not use a silicone pan next time as it tended to bulge at the sides. Thank you and look forward to trying your other recipes.

Looks like the recipe lesson worked well for you. How did the crumb turn out?

Hope you had fun making it!

Thank you cerevisiae, the crumb is pretty even and small. I had immense fun making it. I have a foto of it sliced but still looking how to load it in this thread!!

Using the generic recipe I used half full fat milk and half water, what a result. The crumb was even and the texture was soft and springy, the taste was wonderful. I also lessened the salt. I live in Luxor Egypt and the bread here,  the staple diet, varies so much from tasteless to sweet and so light for the white bread to heavy for the local bread. I will be trying different breads, as far as ingredients will let me as some are unavailable here.
