Baking Bread for a Wedding
A friend asked if I would make some loaves of bread for her wedding (there are others also being asked so I will not be baking it all).
The wedding is out of town and so I will need to bake the bread at least ONE to TWO days ahead of the wedding. I am going to try to bake it Friday morning as we need to leave Friday afternoon and the wedding is early Sat afternoon.
I do enjoy baking bread and feel like I do a good job at it - so I am happy to bake bread for her. But I also do not like bringing bread that is sub-par due to it being stale - I believe bread is always best eaten the same day or the next.
I am looking for a good recipe that would still seem fresh Saturday afternoon if I baked it Friday morning. From what I have read having a higher fat content is the way to go - right?
I will probably only be baking about 4 loaves due to the time restraint - though if there is some way I could bake the bread on Thursday I could make more.
Any thoughts? The type of bread I bake is totally up to me - it won't be for sandwiches - just a table with a variety of breads on it.
