Happy Bread

downsize.jpgFor a family gathering I offered to bring the bread. My plan was to alter the recipe to make it egg free so my nephew would be able to enjoy it as well. As I know substitutions don't always work I decided to make a test batch. Friday morning was low key and we were not going anywhere so I decide it would be a good time to bake. So I started the bread calmly expecting to just make some bread and not hilarity. All went as planned I used flax seed and water instead of eggs and the dough rose. Then it was time to braid it. I usually do two braided loafs, this time I decided it would be nice to have a couple small loafs. So I made one regular braided loaf and two small round braided loafs. As I set them on the baking stone to let them rise I began to giggle. I had unintentionally made a braided bread smiley face that gave me at least 20 min of hyper hilarity. A simple smile definably adds joy to ones day.
