This is a decent bread recipe. And an easy braided loaf to make at home by any home cook. But that's about where the love for this loaf from Joanna Gaines stops.
The recipe for this bread is very easy to make and follow. It can be duplicated in a home kitchen with ease. But I just want it to have MORE flavor!
This is an O.K. loaf of bread. It doesn't really have that much flavor, and I guess that I just desired more at first bite. It is an enriched dough, which means it is made with the addition of fats. In this case, eggs and oil. And typically enriched bread has a sweetness to it and good flavor.
This one left me feeling a little blah.
If I made this again, I would probably replace the oil with butter for a more flavorful end product. And add an extra egg yolk. This should be able to be done without any harm to the recipe, and should not require any extra flour.
Overall, I might still be on the hunt for a great and easy loaf of bread to make at home.
Until next time, Happy Cooking!
