After painting bread for the 7th World Bread Day was so much fun I decided to play some more. Probably will even more--it's just too much fun! Poor Gene will have painted bread for dinner for the next...whenever i get tired of painting bread, I guess. Poor, Gene. Poor, poor Gene, getting home-made painted bread for dinner every night. It's a hard knock life, eh?
The recipe I used this time is my own basic large loaf (1 1/2 to 2 lbs) recipe that easily fills my Pullman Pan or my large Pampered Chef bread loaf crock, although in this instance and often, I simply formed it into a boule (big round loaf), painted it, and baked it without a form of any kind.
