Ten breads to try to make this year

It’s the beginning of the year and I don’t know about you but I’m really excited to try out some new recipes!  I thought it would be fun to make a list of the breads that I am planning to give a go this year and perfect and I added a couple of my favourites too that I think you should definitely be trying out.

Here’s what I’m planning to attempt this year – you can probably tell that I’m a plain bread lover!  I’m not so keen on adding nuts and seeds to my bread

  1. ciabatta – one of my favourites and I’ve never tried it.
  2. french baguette – got to be worth a go!
  3. sourdough bread – I’ve never mastered this yet
  4. a great wholemeal bread – I have mastered it in my bread maker but I really want to be able to make a great loaf in the oven and by hand.
  5. croissants – ok not bread but they are rather yum!
  6. focaccia – loved this in italy
  7. soft rolls – can these even be done?
  8. cinnamon rolls – I look at these every time and drool but have never made them.

And here’s a few of my favourites that you should definitely try to make because they are super simple (recipes coming soon, I’ll link from here when I do them)

  1. flatbreads – honestly, you’ll wonder why you ever buy them!
  2. soda bread – I love this one but my kids don’t so much.  I need to treat myself and make it soon!

Have you got any breads and bakes that you’re hoping to perfect this year?  Let me know about them in the comments – you might inspire me to have a go too!
