The bread was delicious with a crunchy crust on the outside and soft texture on the inside and you need a good bread knife to cut this loaf. I also made a Sun Dried Tomato Dip to go with it and everyone enjoyed both.
The Sun Dried Tomato Dip was 250 gms Philadelphia cream cheese and 100 gms of sun dried tomatoes. Just blitz the sundried tomatoes and then mix the cream cheese in with it and it's done. This quantity made quite so I would probably just make half the recipe next time but it was delicious with the bread. My photos are quite blurry as my shutter speed was too slow and I was running late getting my hot bread over to my sisters but you get the idea.
My 23 year old niece loved it so much asked for the recipe and I explained to her that she can use one of her Mum's Corningware/Pyrex dishes with the lid to bake the bread. I will be making this bread more often, just remembering to get the dough done the afternoon before we actually want to eat it. It's so easy and everyone loves it.
