So a while ago I picked up a “loaf in a carton” from IKEA. They have for sale in the food shop a carton that looks like an oversized milk carton, that you’re just meant to add water to, to arrive at a crusty loaf of bread. Thought I’d give it a burl, and I have to say, I couldn’t stop laughing…
So the shot above shows the carton. I added the water as per instructions. Then I shook, and I shook, and I shook. Per the instructions, I then poured the whole shebang into a silicon loaf mould. I ended up with a heap of sludge (that constituted, I think, most of the goodness that was supposed to be in the load), which I then had to scrape out with a spoon, and try to mix in the loaf pan.
I tried to pretty up the photo above with effects, but really, it wasn’t pretty.
Then I had to wait for it to rise:
This was it after rising for an hour.
Like I say, I spent the best part of an afternoon laughing my head off.
Popped it in the oven:
This was it after the requisite time in the oven. Still not so pretty…
Have to say though, despite the help in photo editing, it was actually pretty darn tasty, the end result.
Why not give it a go? At the very worst, it’ll be a mildly amusing afternoon, and you’ll have some “not-bad-at-all” bread at the end of it?
